Strict Anti-Spam Rules: Important for authors and publishers

(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.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

To ensure the above procedures are used, posts by new members in the Suggestion Box will be held for moderation.

There are over 240,000 members at OnlineBookClub.org. Following the proper procedures to get help or make suggestions actually helps us help you much faster.
Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box. If you have an issue or question related to the review Team, please check either the Author Dashboard (if you are an author or publisher), or check the Review Team Page (if you are a reviewer).

Yes, you can.

Hi, this is my first post. I have read the Strict Anti-Spam Rules. But these are mostly for authors and publishers. I am a reader and not gonna publish anything so it will be helpful if I get free e-books to read and I could give comment on that.

Hello Scott, Nice to hear you and thank you very much for guiding me how to post and write here.

"The author of the topic in the April Book of the Month Discussion Forum that gets the most unique replies by the end of April wins a $25 Amazon Gift Card."

These topics from you, but I can't able to write there. Are there any rules for a new member?
Thanks.

I applaud, and appreciate, your efforts to prevent spamming, and hope that I don't inadvertently fall afoul of them. I have several pages of reviews for books that I want to post. I have _no idea_ what their Amazon ranks are. So, I can't be sure that I won't look like a spammer, for collecting reviews over the last 6+ months. Some, as will be clear got very low marks, and some got really good ones, for reasons I usually give. (Some so called "Romance" books are really disguised pornography, and get "0.0" ratings.)
How do I post these reviews, and not look like a spammer? I chose what to read based on cover/title, and whim, so there is no pattern, except that I prefer "clean" material or need a "pick me up."
If need be, I can send a PDF copy of the document that I would work off of, for reviewing and approval.
Thank you.
