      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

Some notes on using this section...

Recommended Posts

There are various ways that this section can be used.. you might want to keep a wish-list, a list of your books-to-read, or a record of the books you have read. Or even a mixture of all three! :smile:

 

On the old forum we used to allow two or three threads throughout the year. However since we have moved over to Invision this is no longer necessary or desirable. Please therefore only start one thread. We do not close threads until they reach around 1,000 replies (somewhere around 100 pages) so you have plenty of space for your posts and threads should easily last for the entire year.

 

A problem can occur if you decide to edit your first post as you finish each book.. if the post gets too long, the software prevents you adding any more. One solution to this is to leave a few empty posts at the beginning, so you can go back and edit them.

 

Thanks for your cooperation in this matter. :)

I've been editing my first post to show all the new books I keep buying. I haven't been stopped yet but I think that time is drawing near so I've decided to stop. :hyper:

 

I really like the idea of leaving a few empty posts at the beginning of the blog. I'll have to remember that for when I start a new blog next year. Thanks for the tip!

The system won't actually let you have an empty post, so you might have to type something like "coming soon - books read" or even just "holding pattern". :hyper:
