Critiques & Feedback
Critiques & Feedback (formerly Critiques, Feedback, and Novel Swaps) is a NaNoWriMo forum where Wrimos can swap novels and receive feedback. Wrimos may use the forum all year long to swap novels and seek feedback for NaNo and non-NaNo projects alike. It, along with all the forums that lived in the December and Beyond category, was created in 2007.
In 2014, the Critiques forum lived in the Resources and Writing Support section of the NaNoWriMo forums. They were moved back to December and Beyond in 2015 when the category was renamed I Wrote a Novel, Now What? and became year-round. As of September 2019, Critiques & Feedback is a subforum of Novel Draft Aftercare.
Interestingly, this forum went without a forum description until 2011.

Popular Topics and Threads
The sticky post explains how the forum works and what to expect from posting. Before September 2019, a moderator made a thread for each genre for Wrimos to post excerpts and solicit feedback. Individual threads for specific projects were discouraged until September 2019, when the introduction of tags and filtering by genre made individual threads more feasible. There are also usually cross-genre feedback threads, such as "Critique the Excerpt Above You", a general novel swap, and a critique thread for query letters.
