I visit this site several times a day and got a book request.  There was no email from PBS about the book request (I had several other emails from PBS, however).  Went to "Club Communications" and the only thing listed there is:

There is a known problem right now,  please be patient while the team gets things back on track.

Hey that is strangely weird. I know it's not related, but on another site I used to be on (not even in the same realm of greatness as PBS), they had a rating system (it wasn't FIFO). When a member "went bad" and eventually gof kicked off, their "join date" was set back to 1969. That's how you were supposed to tell if they were a bad trader (because strangely, although they racked up hundreds of negative feedbacks, for example, their inventory lists remained on the site for unknowing people to request).

I think they are tinkering with things again. All day it has said under Members Online: 1.  When obviously there is more than 1 person on the site.

I didn't even notice that until you pointed it out Mary!  This place would be awfully lonely if I was the only one here!

My PBS e-mails have been lagging all day, dunno if it's my server or a site issue.
