Hiya!

I have credits on another website I would like to trade you for some PBS credits. Or SwapADVD or CD credits.  3 credits there for 2 credits here. As per PBS rules, I can't actually say which website on the forums, but please PM if you are involved in other book trading sites, to see if we could do some trading.

Thanks, and think of it like... a mystery! :)

P.S.

For the curious, this is the phrasing I was suggested to use by PBS moderators. The nice gal said post "credits to trade" and offer to say where upon PMing.  :)

Thanks!

Thanks for those that have inquired so far!  I still have many more credits to trade. :)

Just an FYI - the site leaders do not allow anything to be outright traded for PBS credits here except books. You can post that you want to "buy" PBS credits, but cannot state that you want to pay for them in non-monetary ways, that must be done in private PMs.

The following is the site owner's post on the subject to another member:

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

You can sell your PBS Credits here.[ ]

You cannot sell anything else.

That means that [name removed], 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.
