      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

To reply to a reply, I think you want to quote someone, so in the bottom right of the post, you should see a button called Quote.  This will put a quote of the post you want to reply to in the Reply to this topic field at the bottom of the thread where you would normally post a reply.
 
So for example, if I click on the Quote button in your post above, the following appears in the Reply to this topic field:
 
 


How do i reply to a reply on a post?
Is it possible to download a profile picture from my computer instead of finding a picture from google images?

 
 
It should be possible to add your own photo to your profile.  Click on your username in the top right of the menu bar at the top of the screen, then click on My Profile.  When your profile page appears, click on the Edit My Profile button.  On the My Settings page, click on the Change My Photo button, and you should see three options.  Under the Use A Custom Photo section, in the Upload from file field, click on Choose File and browse to the location of the photo you want to upload. 
 
You might like to have a look at the Rules, Guidelines and FAQ section which may answer some other questions you have. :)

There might be a restriction on uploading your own files until you have a certain number of posts, but I'm not sure.  I'll ask the other staff members and let you know.

Unfortunately, we're still not sure whether it's related to the number of posts you've made, but the function is working for others, so this may be the case.  The only thing I can suggest is waiting until you have a few more posts on the board, and then try again.  :)
