Daily free give away

(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.

For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box, as we prefer to deal with Review Team issues privately. If you have an issue or question related to the Review Team, please first check either the Author Dashboard (if you are an author or publisher) or check the Review Team Page (if you are a reviewer). If you are a reviewer and you have a suggestion, you can post that in the special private Review Team Support Forum.

Daily free give away

Post by marydaurio » 14 Feb 2019, 21:11

The book today on the free give away site can only be accessed by Kindle. I joined free give away again yesterday, but any points earned are lost due to not being able to read the book. So I guess that's it. I don't know if this post is allowed, if not sorry to waste your time. Also, why on this window does the bottom drop out and you can't post. Is there anything to do to get back the post, save, and preview buttons.

I'm not sure what you mean about the book requiring Kindle. The book can be sampled online on Amazon. Try this link.

As for the other issue, I'm not sure what you mean?
The save, preview, and post bottons are always available on the full editor, which you can get to by clicking "full editor and preview" or "post reply". :tiphat:

The sample consisted just the index.

Is this going to be up anytime soon today? I’ve already retweeted/liked/commented on the tweet, but the daily giveaway page on OBC still has the cat in the shower....

The BotD can be free, but isn't always. :tiphat:

Is that why I have negative points? I have not been able to download the free daily giveaways.

It does nothing to do with that. Your score tab should explain about the points.

But Thank you for your prompt answers.

You can gain points by participating in the daily giveaways, but you won't loose any points for not participating.
Your score tab breaks down your score for you, explaining exactly what reduced your score and by how much.
You may try rechecking your score to see if that helps, and remember to check the various sections of your score tab. I believe it's under one of the drop sections.
