Where's the Silly Question Discussion?

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

If you have a question, problem, or suggestion regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.

Apologies in advance. I'm doing my best to find my way around the site and feel sure what I'm about to ask is probably to the majority a silly question but here goes ...

I've never belonged to a Book Club Forum before and would like to take part in the Nov Book of the Month read. What does that mean? I've placed my vote and don't know what happens next? Will I need to contact somebody to take part? :?:

If only there was a Silly Question Discussion Board - I wouldn't feel so daft! :oops:

Silly questions are welcome in the feedback forum.

You do not have to do anything special to participate. I will start the November discussion topic on November 1st. Just make sure to read the book so you are ready to jump into the conversation. You will be able to post in the topic like you would any other topic on the forum.

Two silly questions:

When I save a website to my Favourites, it comes up with an icon/logo for easy recognition. This website appears to have a white square. My two questions are: (1) Is there an unresolved debate raging over a defining image for the Forum? or (2) Is it symbolic of the blank page on which to post? Either way, Scott, your enlightenment on this vexing subject would be much appreciated.

Maud Fitch, it is more like an oversight. I've added a favicon. Tell me what you think. If you find a better image to use as an icon, feel free to send it to me. Thanks!

Fantastic, Scott. I noticed it straight away! Since it is such a tiny little square, I think your choice is good. However, I will keep my eyes open for anything which could suitably convey the wonders within these forums.
