I am looking to borrow 6 credits. I have 3 books going out this week, so I will be able to pay it back in the next couple weeks. Please help if you can.

I just buddied you (3) credits.  Hope that will help. 

ETA:  Forgot to mention that there is no need to return the credits; just pay it forward when you can.

Just in case someone else happens across this thread I am posting the rules for credit loans here (from the red sticky thread at the top of the forum) so others know the rules. We are not allowed to borrow more than 4 credits at a time.

(7) Rules regarding posts asking for "credit loans"

NOTE: asking for credit GIFTS is strictly prohibited.  Asking for LOANS must be confined to Book Bazaar and follow the rules below:

  • The original post in the topic should specify clearly (1) how many credits are needed (maximum 4) and (2) a timeframe to repay them.
  • Any members who lend credits in response to these threads must post in the topic that they have given credits, and how many. 
  • When the member who asked for a loan has gotten the credits she needs, she must edit the topic title and the original post to say "Thank you--no more replies needed!" .
  • No member should post a topic asking to borrow credits more than once per month, and can do this a maximum of 2 months in a row. So it is okay to ask in January and again in February, but that same member cannot ask again until April.
  • No member may ask for credit loans before having paid back all previous loans. 
  • Anyone giving credits to a member in response to this kind of topic who expects repayment should send a PM saying "I have lent you [x number of] credits - pay me back when you can" (or state a timeframe in your message).
  • Anyone giving credits to a member in response to this kind of topic who does NOT expect repayment should include in her PM "I have sent you [x number of credits] - no need to repay".
  • These credit loan topics may not appear anywhere but Book Bazaar. The original poster may bump the topic if she needs to only once - not once per day, but once ever.

Melanie - That post needs to be updated because there is conflicting information on this issue.  In the section above the one you posted, the last bullet of "(2) Individual Members' Threads" says "maximum six".
