Every once in a while, there will be a small contest or writing challenge held in a group. It will either be hosted by BookRix, or by a user. Everyone is welcome to participate, just make sure you pay close attention to the contest guidelines.
Entering a Group Contest
If you are not already a member of the group where the contest or writing challenge is being held, you will first need to join the group. You can do so by going to the group’s page and clicking the Join Group button on the right. Then, scroll down to the submissions thread and enter your submission within the appropriate timeframe and be sure to adhere to the guidelines of the contest.
How to win a Group Contest
There are two ways to judge a contest: (1) A panel of judges, or (2) A Voting thread.
Sometimes group Admins or another type of panel will vote on the submissions instead of the community – creating a panel of judges. In this case, the announcement of the winner(s) will be posted within that group and around the site. Otherwise, a voting thread will be opened once the submissions period is over, if that is how the group contest is being run. You can vote within that voting thread during the time period specified in the guidelines. These types of challenges/contests are fun because they are intended for short writing submissions and don’t last as long as a major contest.
Creating Your Own User Contest in a Group
Feel free to do whatever you would like with your user contest. Anyone can host a user contest, and you don’t need to contact BookRix. If you’re an Admin or Moderator in a group, you can hold the contest there, or you can host the contest on your own profile. You can create your own contest/challenge idea, create your own guidelines, fix your own start and end dates, and provide your own prizes. You can even decide how the winner will be chosen (voting/panel of judges/yourself). Post the information about your user contest in the I Love BookRix Writing Contests group and BookRix will help by promoting your user contest in the sidebar.
Generally, this is how you should run your contest: First, the contest or writing challenge is announced and guidelines are set forth. Then, the entry/submission thread is posted. Make sure you mark the thread as Important (using the settings tool icon) so that it’s easy to find. Submissions can be entered into the thread by adding a comment with a link to your submission or by posting your entry directly in the comments (depending on the contest guidelines).
Groups are a great place to share ideas, give and receive support and engage with the BookRix community. To view available groups, you can click on the Community page, select All Groups and you’ll see a listing of all the groups BookRix has to offer.
Joining a group is easy. Select a Group that interests you and click Join Group. This button will immediately change to You Are a Member, and you will be notified of new group discussions and group news. Feel free to browse through current topics and add your own comments.
You can resign from a group the same way you joined. Simply click You Are A Member once and you will see Resign from Group. Clicking this will remove you from the Group and you will no longer receive notifications associated with it.
If you want to be a member of a group, but you don't want that group to appear on your profile page you have the option to hide it. Also, you have the option to stop receiving notifications from any of your groups. Simply go to Groups from your profile page and access the Settings tab.
Create a new post
Public Groups: If you are on the group page and you are able to leave a comment immediately, then the group is open to posts from non-members and you can go ahead and start typing your message in the comment box. If you can see comments, but there is no box to create one, then you must first join the group. As soon as you click the Join Group button, you will immediately be a member and have access to the group.
Private Groups: If the group is listed as private, you will not be able to post a comment as a non-member. You must first click the Join Group button which will then change to ? Request Sent. Your request to join the group is sent to the group’s Administrator who will decide if you are able to join the group (pending age restrictions, etc.). If the Admin accepts your request, you will get a notification and then you will be able to access the group.
To create a new post, all you have to do is click inside the comment box (where it says “Write a new post…”) and start typing. When you’re finished, hit Send. You can also leave a comment under another user’s post by clicking inside the box (where it says “Add a comment…”) and typing in your text. At this time, you will not be able to edit your posts or comments, but can easily delete them by clicking on the settings tool icon to the right of your post and then clicking on Delete. After confirming that you want to delete your post, it will be immediately removed.
If you want to include a link to your book, an external link, or an image into your post, all you have to do is paste the link (URL) into the comment box and then hit enter. The thumbnail for your link will immediately appear and if you don’t want to show the image, simply click on No Thumbnail. Then click on Send and your link will be displayed. If you insert the link and hit Send without first hitting enter, you will not be given the option to display an image beside your link.
Start your own group
Each BookRix member has the option to create a group of their own. You can invite BookRix members, host group contests and discuss topics that interest you.
You can invite BookRix members, have group contests and talk about anything under the sun. Your group is your group so do what you wish and have fun!
To create your group, you need to go to the Groups listing page. On the right hand side, you will see a button that says Create a New Group. After you click on this, you will be asked for the group name and a description of what the group is all about. On the left, you can also upload a group picture, decide the status of your group (Public or Private), choose your language, and also (for Public groups) you can decide if you want to allow non-members access to posts and comments. Then click Create New Group. Now you’re the Admin of your group and have full access to all features of the group.
Once you have created your own group, you are now the Administrator and have access to all features of the group. Feel free to get comfortable with the features.
Posts: After members start creating posts and comments, you can use the settings tool icon to monitor all posts. By clicking on the icon, you can (1) Delete the post, (2) Create sticky threads by clicking on Mark Post as Important (This will move the comment to the top of the posts, where it will stay unless you choose to click Remove “Important Post” Mark) and (3) You can also Disable Additional Comments so that other users can’t comment on a specific post (this button will then change to Allow Comments, in case you change your mind).
Members: You can also monitor the members of your group by clicking on the Members tab. You can search for members and you can also edit a member’s role (as Administrator, Moderator, or Member). If you decide to upgrade a member into an Admin, you are giving them the same rights as you have. If you upgrade a member into a Moderator, that member will be able to access all the features in the Posts tab, and search through members in the Members tab, but nothing more.
Settings: If you select Administrators and Moderators in the drop down, you can search for a member and appoint them (using the drop down) as either a Moderator or an Admin. You can also remove a member from their role as Moderator or Admin by clicking on Remove next to their name. If you select Block User from the drop down, you can search for group members and block them. Blocked members will not be able to create posts or comments and will not be able to rejoin the group. You can also use the same tab to Unblock members.
If you want to edit the group details, just click on the Edit button at the top of the group page. There, you will have access to all the information you filled in when you first started the group.
Tip: ALWAYS remember to save your changes.
Keep in mind that BookRix reserves the right to delete your group if it's not active within 4 months. In addition, all groups must follow our Code of Conduct.
If you have any questions about your group, please email us at email@example.com anytime. We are happy to help you out.
