All these questions really belong on the volunteers list since they are about people submitting books which they only get credit for if they are volunteers. Certainly it is my job (as a volunteer) to speculate on what John is or is not doing such as whether anyone answers messages left in the volunteer mailbox listed on bookshare site. It may not be my job to speculate on a specific message, I agree.

Well, perhaps it isn't our place to speculate on a private email conversation, which we are only hearing about from one viewpoint, and without any actual quotes? Maybe if Sue were to elaborate on her original message, we could assist her. But until then, I think speculation is pointless.

If uploading of a book to bookshare is not a bookshare problem, I don't know what it is. John may be getting at something else here but what it is escapes me.

I, too, have had problems getting an answer--namely, on how to upload
Cypress Point, by Diane Chamberlain.  I wrote to John Glass at support, and
although he did respond, his suggestion was that I write to this list
because it was not a bookshare problem.

I realize there is nothing wrong with the file, Cypress Point, by Diane
Chamberlain, because Gerald downloaded and checked it.  However, the fact
still remains that I cannot upload it, even after getting my computer
straightened out and downloading it from Step 1 again.  Since we are not
allowed to e-mail books to one another, and I have cleaned up the book, I
was hoping John Glass or someone who has admin privileges would let me send
the book to them so that it could be uploaded.  How about it, staff?  This
is a great read and I apologize for not being able to upload it.

Thanks,

Sue S.

I have had much the same feeling as Elizabeth has. While I am pleased that you indeed are reading the mail, John, so to speak, I feel that many of us would feel better about things if you, John, posted more publicly if, for no other reason, to create the feeling that someone at hq has a sense of what thoughts are out in the field. The groundwork for this was established first by Jesse and then later Marissa who were both publicly visible on the list; and when this stopped, a sense of abandonent was unitially created in the communications line. When you came on board, John, earlier this year, we thought that you too would become publicly visible. Hope that makes sense and why some of us feel as we have.
