    or how about letting people create the new author boards instead of being restricted to what is already there?

    The creation of boards is more a response to if a particular author has a number of discussion threads running in the general book discussion area.

    So if there are a number of threads about a specific author, the author gets their own board.

    I guess it's akin to a library system, creating a heirarchical structure according to what information is actually present.

    By all means, everyone is encouraged to discuss whatever books and authors they like. :)

    As for general non-sf books - so far it's just been a case of posting them in the general book discussion. There are no hard and fast rules about where the content should go. If it's not sff then it doesn't matter. :)

    Something I should think upon, though...

    Sorry, yes - I changed a couple of things but wasn't sure whether they required their own announcement. :)

    The first is that I no longer have subforums listed on the index page - it was making everything look very messy.

    I also had a request to make the Authors section top level, so that it would be much more visible, and I agreed that it was a good idea. :)

    Just need to clarify something :)

    In the Authors forums, there are individual forums named for specific authors :) (I've got that)

    However, do you post messages about other authors in that forum, do they appear as seperate threads with the named forums above it?

    OR

    Do you continue posting in the Books forum for any other authors?

    Indeed, post in the "Books and Literature" forum for other authors. :)

    I really should make that much clearer, though.

    The Phoenix Child review was a false review set up by the author - who was Phoenix, one of the members here. Effectively, it was self-advertising, so I binned it with disgust.

    I expect you to get published and be so loved as an author, that you will be disgustingly rich, and you will forget all about us poor plebs!!! :(
