Book Bazaar Forum Rules :: 2) Members may "bump" their topics a maximum of once a day (bumping = posting a new post in a topic for the purpose of keeping the topic on the front page of the forum topic list). Adding a new post with new information is not considered bumping. If you edit your original post to update information there, this will not "bump" the topic.

 I may be wrong about this, but according to PBS rules, PBS credits can only be traded for books. But I'm not 100% sure I'm correct about that, because I have seen it done here before.

Best of luck! :)

No, we're technically not allowed to swap credits for anything other than books.  It has been done though.  I personally wouldn't mind swapping a few myself..because I have over 20 over there, grr, and only 3 left here...and I hate to be under 10..lol...I get all paranoiaish (not even a word, but o well)

Since this is an issue quite a bit, I have marked Richard's post on this. It is against site rules to post asking to swap PBS credits for other site credits. Here is his post for 10/12/07:

 

All right, here is the PBS Team word on this.

You can sell your PBS Credits here.  (And this should be done in the Book Bazaar, [ ])

You cannot sell anything else.

That means that [removed name], you could have posted "Anyone want to sell me some credits?  Contact me by PM if so," and then in Personal Messages explained 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.

We are sure someone else will find a way to do the above inappropriately somehow, and we will hear from members again asking us to clarify, but for now this is the ruling.

I've gotten a TON of wishlisted books from BM...only problem is...I've sorta exceeded my limit, haha...so now I'm waiting for someone to order some more books over there so I can get some more wishlisted books.
