Marte - Thunderella SO!
Wow, what a day huh?

If I'm not making sense or forget something you'll have to excuse me because I'm still dazed after today.

Anyway!
Leafmarks.com is the place to be "free"!


You've read what Marco said. His got a profile on there (several of us actually, including me) and he/we are ITCHING to make friends! :D

It's basically the same as GR, but not as developed yet, but join and work on it together?

DID YOU GET THE PART WHERE HE SAID ALL HIS REVIEWS IS UP AND RUNNING??? :D :D :D

I will continue my GR account though, so I won't be completely gone! I'll just double surf.

It's easy to import/export books apparently! Go to My Books (yours not mine, okay, duh! ;) LOL) and click "import/export" in the column somewhere on the left (scroll down a bit). Follow the instructions, and then import that file at Leafmarks! Easypeasy!

Alisha I am so glad that I went to leafmarks yesterday and found Marco today.


message 4: by Sunne (new)

Sunne Me, too :)


Marte - Thunderella It will take some time to adjust and become familiar with the new layout of Leafmarks. And the site needs work, but let's work on it together shall we? :D

(view spoiler)


message 6: by Barbara (new)

Barbara I think that after today a lot of people will join LM (I love shorting names :). I hope we'll have a great time there and create a community where we can be ourselves without worrying about flagers. Also, I send you a friend invite on LM, too.


message 7: by Matthew (new)

Matthew I will start one later :)

I'll get to it! ;)

Richele, I've just sent you a friend invite, too. I hope you don't mind :). After seeing your profile's photo, I couldn't stop myself (go, go Charlie's fans~!).

Barbara wrote: "Also, I send you a friend invite on LM, too. "

I'll get to it! ;)


Thank you~! :)


message 10: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper Say hi to Marco for me - I'm moderator for the YA group here, and I can't cope with two sites, but will miss seeing him around :(

I'm glad he's finding good things about Leafmarks.


Marte - Thunderella Kaje wrote: "Say hi to Marco for me "

Yeah, I'll do that. :)


Kaje wrote: "... but will miss seeing him around :(

Never say never....? ;)


message 12: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper I sure hope he'll be back!


message 13: by Alona (new)

Alona Just opened my Leafmarks account!
Looks like an amazing site!
I'm so ADD, but I'll try my best to cope with a second, new, reading site.
Thanks Marte.


message 14: by Tessi4M (new)

Tessi4M Is there a way to sync between LM and GR? Or is it double maintenance after the first initial import for LM?


message 15: by Jenna (new)

Jenna Tessi, you can upload an updated csv file again, but any books that were already on your shelves won't be changed. So if you had a book on your to read list and you read it and reviewed it on GR, it won't change on LM when you upload the new file unless you remove it from your LM shelves first. Does that make sense?


message 16: by Alisha (new)

Alisha You can export your books from GR and import the csv file into LM. When you do this it take all of your reviews, dates read and ratings. On LM you can have your re-read date on there also and they count on all challenges that they apply to.


message 17: by Tessi4M (new)

Tessi4M Thanks. But only a partial solution, then, if you only get half the updates/changes you have made.


message 18: by Alisha (new)

Alisha It's not perfect yet but LM is new and are looking for Suggestions, Feedback & Help and they will respond to your emails or the discussions. Anyone can apply to be a Librarian and can make updates books.


message 19: by Tessi4M (new)

Tessi4M Well, I'm giving it a try. First import triggered but it says it will be a couple of hours before it is processed and I can actually see my books.


message 20: by Alisha (new)

Alisha I think it depends on how many books you have. Mine took like 30 min to see all of mine.

He does an amazing job with his reviews. If he gives it 3 or more stars I add it to my TBR list. The people who read m/m books become almost like a family on these sites. We have each others backs and we share our up and downs just like a family. Sometime we can share more of who we really are with our friends on GR and LM then we can with our real family without worrying about being judged.

Well, I guess that wherever he is, he will see this and is appreciating this very much! He sounds like an awesome dude! :-D "


Yeah, he's really great! I think all the comments and support in my updates means the world to him. It's a shitty thing to go through what he went through! I love him to bits though, and hope he'll be back. Maybe. We'll see. I'm keeping him updated on what is going on over here at GR so I'll rely your kind word to him.

:D

I hope he takes every likes and comments to heart. He has touched a lot of other's hearts here on GR. The amount is astonishing, but not surprising really, since he is who he is. :D I'm really impressed by him!

message 25: by Adrianamae (new)

Adrianamae goodness, I take time with the baby and I come back to this bullshit again. I'm furious, this is so wrong. I will be joining LM, and will only rate books in GR without any reviews since it seems that's what GR likes. Besides GR would suck without Marco.

Marco is an excellent reviewer. There are an amount of books that I have bought because I truly trust his reviews. So to heck with GR and Amazon, they'll lose quite an amount of sales.


Marte - Thunderella Troy wrote: "OMG, Adrianamae, I'm sure that if Marco - whoever that fucker is - would be blushing all over right now! And I'm sure he didn't want you to get furious! Just go over to LM and join him, I'm sure, he'll be very pleased by that!"

So would I!


Marte - Thunderella Love your new profile name Adrianamae! :D


message 28: by Adrianamae (new)

Adrianamae why troy, Marco is the type of guy your mother warned you about -and he is also the type of man that any mother with a gay son would love to meet. As a mother of a gay son I can say that. He's sassy, funny, rebellious, and a total sweetheart.

Enough, sorry! I'm getting mushy because I'm mad -and I need all my patience because this old broad hates technology, and I know need to understand LM

Alona Wait a minute... Where IS Troy?


message 30: by Bitchie (new)

Bitchie Here's my Leafmarks profile. Lots of you have already found me, thanks for that! I'm still learning my way around, but I finally added a profile.Has anyone thought of creating any groups, so we have a central place to hang out?

Right... Marte :)


Sonia ~Ruber's fiancé in Crystal Court universe~ yep, he's awesome! I owe all my current GR friends to him! I was to shy to befriend people without a link or mutual friends, but he had this friendly message on his profile that I just went for it! and he accepted me just like that <3 and the rest is history!

He definitely looked trollish to me. hmmmmm


message 47: by Adrianamae (new)

Adrianamae can we use this thread to leave LM profiles, so that we can reach each other?


message 48: by Heidi (new)


message 49: by Marlobo (new)

Marlobo Link to my profile is https://www.leafmarks.com/lm/#/users/...

The things there look promising and for sure I would love a life with less meddling from Amazon. I'm importing my books right now.


Maria (aka Fashionta) I've been slowly hearing about members having their GR profiles deleted and/or reviews removed.

I'm a very quiet/shy person in general. But would love to make friends. I loved reading Marco Manganiello reviews and I'm saddened he has left.

I'm hoping this is an OK place to leave my leafmarks profile, in hopes of making many friends! :)
