Is this the template one or the Natively automated one with the spoiler?

Both include the spoiler, so I’m guessing it’s something intended by the author to be known since the beginning? For me it’s just a turn off though, removes part of the shock.

Since the template does have the description closed by default and that’s the publisher summary I’m going to leave it as is. I reread the summary and it seems pretty normal for a mystery book summary, I suspect the meat of the book would be after that setup. I understand not everyone wants to know details, but I don’t think it’d be fair to other club members to remove it.

Yeah it was not my intention to change it, it’s just me voicing my opinion on it. I’d probably would have voted for it otherwise

I voted I don’t care, but I’m fine with making one and am also OK with granting some club regulars edit access. The site seems a bit unstable at the moment though, but once the overhaul is less shakey I can take this on.

As the site is no longer having server issues, the list was made, available here: Mystery Book Club Current Nominations | Japanese list by cat | Natively

I just added the comments from nominators in the description for the time being, with some light tidying because it didn’t look like links would work in those boxes? @eefara @omk3 I added you both as collaborators as I saw you voted as wanting to help on it. Don’t feel the need to ask my permission for any tweaks, I trust your judgements.

Didn’t want to push this on you, but thank you for taking the initiative. :green_heart::green_heart::green_heart:

Link back up to poll


:popcorn:

Also I went ahead and simplified the nomination template a bit. Summaries are no longer required if the book page already has them, and I made content warnings not behind a drop down but put in a request to use spoiler tags if the content warnings are known to be spoilers (most books nominated here haven’t been read by the nominator so not a major issue).

I just realized the poll closed two days ago and we still hadn’t announced the winner. Congratulations to 赤ずきん、旅の途中で死体と出会う! :tada:

I’ll probably sit this one out, have fun!

Oh gosh, I forgot to mark it on my calendar to check :see_no_evil: Things not on my calendar cease to exist unfortunately.

I’ve already listened to the audiobook so I won’t be participating, but since I nominated it I can manage the threads. Does anyone happen to have a copy they are willing to section out into weeks given our pacing guidelines? They’re at the top of the thread but from memory I want to say it’s 30-60 pages per week. Ramping up towards the end won’t be as necessary with this book as it’s actually a series of (lightly) connected short stories.
