Mass Exodus to Booklikes Gunking Up The Works?

I have to admit that I've been out of the fray recently... but it seems as if there's quite the flocking to Booklikes these days. That's not a bad thing. Any place that welcomes book lovers and gives us the opportunity to discuss books is a good thing.

 

But the influx seems to be s - l - o - w - i - n - g down the Booklikes site. Hoping that will right itself.

 

Also hoping for more info on how to make this site even more social. It's great to post reviews and discuss books I've read. BUT I'd love to get more tips and tricks on customizing my Dashboard or something, so that I can INTERACT more with those I follow and who follow me.

 

Those of you who've used this site more fully, perhaps you can share your favorite tips with me? I welcome them!
