Welcome to the Books subforum! Books is intended for discussions on all books and their authors.
As a member, it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the forum's rules before posting. Posting in this forum implies that you read and understand the rules and guidelines and that you accept responsibility for the appropriateness of your thread or post.
Flaming & trolling. Posts directed at another member which are hateful, abusive, or intentionally inflammatory are considered flaming. Making intentionally inflammatory or provocative posts to incite responses from other members is considered trolling.
Spam. Posts that are gibberish, off-topic, contain advertisements or begging, or have low or no content are considered spam. Please ensure that your posts are on topic and contain an appropriate amount of discussable content.
Copyrighted Materials. Posting, requesting or linking to copyrighted materials, such as mp3s, movies and television episodes, and e-books is not permitted on Gaia.
Terms of Service violations may result in a warning or a ban on your account.
If you find Terms of Service violations, or threads that may need moved to a different forum, please use an appropriate report. The procedures for doing so can be found here.
You can find online moderators by following the "View Forum Moderators" link at the top of the forum.
Gaia Staff will NEVER ask for your password! If anyone asks you for your password, report it.
Repeat Threads - Please check the forum prior to making a new thread! Chances are, if you want to discuss a popular series or author, there will already be a thread on the first few pages. You can also check the Directory for popular threads.
Movie discussions - If your thread is primarily discussing the movie version of a book, please keep in mind that it belongs in the main Entertainment forum rather than this subforum.
Writing - If you are interested in writing your own book, please head on over to the Writers Forum.
Tips for Posting
Please utilize the report system rather than posting in misplaced threads. Do not post in them. It only serves to start flame wars and keeps the threads at the top of the page. Just report and ignore them.
Be specific with thread titles! Put the title of the book, and even author in the title of the thread so people know what you want to discuss. Also, tell us a little about the book in your first post - giving background information makes for a better discussion.
We ask that you do not post any recommendation threads in this forum as there is already a sticky for them, and it clutters the forum by taking away space from all the discussions trying to take place! If you're interested in finding new books please go here.
The topic is in the wrong forum and should be moved to a more appropriate forum.
If you need to contact a moderator via Private Message, please use the "View Forum Moderator" link at the top of this forum to find a moderator.
Report Hacking, Scamming or Abuse & Harassment?
The Hacking, Scamming and Abuse or Harassment report forms can be found at the bottom of the forum index. When submitting a report, ensure that you fill out all fields and include as much relevant information as possible.
Report A Hacking
Use this form to report a Hacking. Hacking, on Gaia Online, refers to the unauthorized access of an account by someone other than the account owner. In most typical hacking cases, an unauthorized person enters an account which does not belong to him or her and takes items or gold from the account, often changing the account information so that the original owner can no longer access his or her account.
Report A Scamming
Use this form to report a Scamming. Scamming is when another member of Gaia takes your gold or items, or tries to take your gold or items, by making false promises of giving you rare items, get-rich-quick schemes, or by any other deceptive means. Scamming generally involves a situation in which two members of Gaia make an arrangement to trade gold, items, or a Gaia approved service (e.g. avatar art commission) with each other and then one of the parties involved in the arrangement fails to live up to his or her promise of an exchange.
Report Abuse or Harassment
Use this form to report ongoing Abuse or Harassment. If you are reporting harassment or abuse that is occurring directly in a thread, please use the "Report This Post" button instead.
