Hello, wasn't sure where to ask this but is there a way to put your "RC' marked "yes' permanently in the box of books page? I don't understand it, I guess. I have in my profile & RC that I only read historical romances and if you don't have any on your shelf I am sorry but I would have to decline your offer to swap boxes. I still keep getting requests for lots of books when the other person doesn't have historical romances.

If I click on the "yes" to use the RC it only applies after they have submitted their requests to me. Is there a way to permanently turn that on so they see it right away?  I so hate declining boxers-especially when they've picked 5 or 6 books but I am not sure what to do!

I appreciate your thoughts & help.  Thanks!

Here's from the Help Center on RCs as the relate to BoBs:

Requestor Conditions and Box-O-Books

The Requestor Conditions in your PBS Account will also apply to your Box-O-Books. The other Boxer can see your Requestor Conditions after he or she has made a Box-O-Books offer.  The link to your Requestor Conditions will appear on the Swap Details page of the pending swap.  If the other Boxer's books do not meet your Conditions, he or she can cancel the swap by clicking "Decline Offer", or remove any books you choose that do not meet conditions.

If you agree in Personal Messages to accept a book that does not meet your account's Requestor Conditions, the other Boxer (or you) WILL be able to add this book back to the Box of books to be sent to you.

Books included in a Box-O-Books are expected to meet the same criteria for good condition as ALL books on PBS.
