Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Important Community Update - PLEASE READ

Hi everyone!

 

Important Community Update:

 

In an effort to improve the functionality of these forums and to provide helpful new ways to share your feedback with us, our community will be seeing some changes in the coming days.

 

I’m excited about the new features and even more excited to provide them to such a devoted community.

 

Here’s a brief rundown of some of the changes:

 

New Boards!

  • We’ve given NOOK Tablet & NOOK Tablet Technical Support their own areas with new boards to jump into, including General Discussion, Ask Your Community Manager, Connectivity, Hardware, and Apps

New Categories within Boards!

  • Much like our NOOK Tablet boards, each device is getting its own space along with new sub-categories

Accepted Solutions!

  • We’re adding the ability to accept solutions across all of our support forums. So you the community can vote on what makes the most sense

Dedicated Feedback Boards!

  • Finally a place where everyone can share their ideas and be confident they won’t get lost in the shuffle

While we’ve gone to great lengths to make these changes without causing too much disruption; however there are some changes that unfortunately could not be worked around.

 

Bookmarks will sadly be affected by the migration of old threads to our new boards. But to mitigate some of this, placeholders will be left in any threads moved and you will then be able to follow the link to update your bookmarks accordingly.

 

The good news is, your existing laurel count totals will remain unaffected. However, since some threads will be redistributed within our new support boards; laurels received on these threads will follow as well. We’ve decided to go this route as opposed to resetting everyone’s laurel count and starting from scratch.

 

We hope the changes positively outweigh any initial setbacks. Remember it’s still your same NOOK community, just a bit tidied up:smileyhappy:.

 

Thank you all for being a part of our B&N community!

[ Edited ]
I've had this idea for some time . . . Leave the rankings be but give novelty ranks as a choice. Go to my profile and pick an equal novelty rank. Say a new user can pick to be ranked new guy/girl or rookie. Bibliophile pick happy poster or boardaholic. Get the idea? Maybe it could be fun. Just a thought.
