Hi all
This morning you may have noticed that your CritMatch preferences panel looks different!
We have changed the match algorithm to support a first choice and a second choice match.
I am finishing up the last bit of testing, during which, I will disable your access to CritMatch (It may look a little weird so please bear with me) so I can test the emails.
I should have that finished up in a day or so and then we can run the match again next week!

We'll also update you when we get the new FAQ up so you can peruse your new choices.

Your homework:
Please review the list of genres and post here any you want added.
Thanks for being a beta test participant!
Leslie

Thanks for continually working on this and being so open to suggestions. Can you list the genres you intend to use? I see that my access is disabled and the panel looks different, but the genres all seem the same, i.e. several flavors of Romance, and only one of everything else, and also no age groups.

Sorry for the late comment…some suggested sub-genres : ’speculative fiction’ , ‘space fiction’ , ‘Christian fiction’, ‘inspirational non-fiction” and ‘new adult’. Not sure if any of these are already offered and I missed them! I think the idea of age-groups is also a good, ‘fine-tuning’ option.

Thanks for the suggestions! I will add them all. We found a few pesky last minute bugs that are getting fixed this week. I also need to update the FAQ and will do that this week as well. We should be ready to go on Monday 8/1!

Keep the genre suggestions coming
:-D

Oh I am also going to restructure the list so it is more intuitive. So don't worry if you don't see your selections pop up until later in the week!
