    Welcome to the Literature Review Forum!

    This Forum is designed for you to give your feelings about particular books, comic series and RPG supplements. Anything you wish to write in a review for a book is welcome, though of course there are guidelines.

    Rules and Regulations
    • ALL reviews, both positive and negative, will be accepted on this Forum, but...

    • ... no author- or mindless book-bashing of any kind will be tolerated. Saying "this book sucks" is not sufficient and will result in a warning, but saying "this book sucks, here's why I think so..." will be fine. Conversely, no bashing of a reviewer for their review will be tolerated either.

    • PLEASE vote in the polls AS WELL AS posting your review in the thread. Please don't just do one.

    • This Forum should be reserved for reviews of EU Literature and discussion on the reviews ONLY. Discussion about the books themselves -- in whole or in part -- should still take place in the EU Literature Forum.

    • This Forum has no assigned, dedicated Moderator so if you see a problem of any sort, please contact Gandolf the Grey, Genghis12, Sturm Antilles, dp4m or Kadue


    General Guidelines

    - Once the initial run has been out for a while, we'll start to add new EU Literature to review. IF you have requests, send 'em along. :)
    - Remember -- some authors do post here, so even if you're not bashing don't say anything in them that you wouldn't say to their faces! [face_shocked]
    - Authors have editors who check their spelling and grammar for your enjoyment; for a review of their work you should think about returning the favor. ;)
    - Remember, there are no spoilers in this Forum so no space is needed. :cool:

    I'd like to echo Papercutshurt, this is really over the top.

    Guys,

    Thanks for using my idea!

    I had suggested this about a year ago, and NOONE seemed to like the idea. I even had a test forum running for a while.

    Great to see it finally up and running!

    If this forum does take off and becomes permanent, I suggest moving (and locking if not already locked) previous review threads from Literature and putting them in here.

    Yes, we certainly do. Every week or so we're going to be adding some new review threads. :)

    Kadue, I can help add threads also if you like, an extra hand can always help.

    We should get some unity between this forum and TFN Books. For example, in each thread, there should be a link to the TFN Book Review, and in the TFN Book Review, there should be a link back to here.

    Scott Chitwood and I have talked about it previously, I will talk to him again about implementing it.

    I would say that when we add, we'll probably add in relatively equal distribution (e.g. something like one of each or the like...)

    I would like one for Darksaber, please. Also, what of the NJO? Are we going to wait until the series is over?

    Yes, that is the aim!

    Remember, I started off as a Literature Forum Moderator before I become TFN Books Staff... I believe we should continue that trend in the future, if staffing needs arise.

    MODS: Is it OK if I start review threads?

    Hi, I just joined, so I think I should have some questions answered by the moderators first so I don't do anything illegal.

    First, I'm a member of a product review website. I have six EU reviews there and make money off of my reviews. Would it be okay if I post links to my reviews here?

    Second, can I open new threads for books?

    Thanks.
