New Community  
I made a community where everyone can go and review any book they want. I don't even care if there is already a review.
It's called
thebookroom

You want to help with moderating.. I will totally make you a moderator. I could use the help. I was uploading all my reviews but I don't really know if I should.

Ohhh and a suggestion.... I saw that you had the author and the rating as tags (and sometimes the series). It would help too to have the title of the book, only because you could go to that tag then, and read several reviews from different people about that book. (If they don't know the author off the top of their head)

Good idea. I can start doing that. Or you could. On Harry Potters maybe it should just be chamber of secrets. Cause i mean the titles in those are hugh or HP chamber of secrets. ????

Thanks for moderating!!!!

You know I'm wondering if we can just make memories for all the book titles. Would you think that would be easier than having billions of tags?

I don't have much experience with the memory option on Livejournal, but I'll go have a look at it ^_^

I figured if we had a list of tags (like your journal here does) that people could browse as they saw. Plus, I think the tags help with the search option of a journal, so they would be able to put the title in and search it as well.

As far as the Harry Potter books are concerned... (or series in general) I think it would probably be a good idea to put the series name and then the subtitle. So it would have the tags Harry Potter & Chamber of Secrets so they could search Harry Potter and get the whole series, or Chamber of Secrets and get that specific book.

And as far as uploading all your reviews... I say go for it if you would like too ^_^ It'd be an excellent way to get things started!

It would be like this http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=thebookroom

Then you or I would simply have to put every post into the Memories, which isn't hard.

You simply go into the posts and hit the memorize button. Then you make sure to change the "WORK AS USER" to thebookroom and then you either pick the current folder they can go in or type in the new one. Not too hard. And I made a like to it on the group so if people are looking they can go into it and see a long list of every book reviewed.

I feel like that would be easier than a huge amount of tags.

What think you?
