I have 6 or more BookMooch credits I would like to swap for PBS credits.  I can NEVER find anything I want on BM.  Anyone willing to swap, just email me at deborah1175@yahoo.com

Hi Deborah - I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but what you are asking is against the rules...sorta.  R&R (the sites founders) had this to say on the issue when it came up awhile back.  I put the relevant part in bold for you.

"You can sell your PBS Credits here.  (And this should be done in the Book Bazaar, not in the CMT Forum.)

You cannot sell anything else.

That means, you could  post "Anyone want to sell me some credits?  Contact me by PM if so," and then in Personal Messages explaine what you are willing to pay.  But you should not post a topic selling anything for credits.  If in PM negotiations anyone was willing to accept the currency of another site for PBS credits, then you could make the exchange.  

It is a small point, but there you have it.  Don't hawk your wares (whatever they are) for credits.   But you can ask if anyone is looking to sell credits, and negotiate payment with them privately."
