What is a member's Guestbook?
A Guestbook is a place where you can leave a member individual messages,
be they about reviews or comments that (s)he has written, compliments
on a member's Personal Homepage, or just as a way of chatting with
other members and getting to know them better.
What is the purpose of a Guestbook?
A Guestbook is a useful way of entering into dialogue with other members
without having to exchange e-mail addresses, which you may not wish
to do for security reasons. Leaving messages in members' Guestbooks
enables you to give them feedback on their reviews and comments, or
ask them questions about the ratings that they have delivered. Guestbooks
are a good place to offer constructive advice on how a member's review
writing might be improved, or to compliment him/her on consistently
