Can someone please explain to me how this site works

Hey everyone, I'm new to this site, and I must say it's heaven, but I'm not entirely sure how to work it. Stupid I know. For instance when I want to search for e-books that people have shared through the discussion boards how do I do that? And what else is this site useful for? Thanks. ^-^

Hi nat,
Welcome to the STP community!

These links will answer many questions you have. If you have anymore feel free to ask. :)


Some tricks for searching: Use either the book, series or author. To bring up Advanced Search enter just 1 letter. Also putting "quotation marks" around the name, author or series will help narrow the search as well. Searching is tricky but do your best.

Do you see a thread you want to follow? Use the notify button. It will email you when something is posted in that thread!

Downloading a book? Please take a moment to click the Thank You button. It's the least you can do for the kind person who took the time & spent their money to upload it. :)

If you don't remember who to contact and you would like to get our attention, just start a post "Requesting Mr. Admin/Mod Help Please" and one of us will be along shortly. :13:

Hello there. I only use the Books and e-books Zone. The rest of the site seems irrelevant to this particular board that I wonder why it's the same site at all?

-All uploaded books or book requests will be on the General board.
-When you search for a book, go to the top right hand corner, type in the book, and choose "Entire site", and search.
-There is an author opt-out list. You will not find books by authors who are on this list here.
-The Books and Author Reviews board is for book reviews/book discussions.
-The bookstore cafe is for chitchats on books.

STP is no longer sharing ebooks for download or upload. This is probably why you can't find certain threads as downloaded books are being removed from site.
