Hi, I have noticed on some people's bookshelf page they've displayed ongoing deals, such as 3 books for  2 credits all the time, but I can't figure out how to do this. PM me, please with tips.  Thanks, terry

Hi Teri,

If you go to "My Account" then "My Bookshelf" there's a grey button on the left that says "Edit my public profile"

That brings up a window in which you can enter text.

To see what you've written, close the window and click on "View my public bookshelf"

That text should appear in a blue box at the top of your bookshelf for all to see.

Note that not too many people will see your offer, since not too many people randomly browse shelves.

Good luck!

To Teri and anyone else interested,

If you go into edit signature and write whatever you want there it will show up at the bottom of each of your posts.

Except that not everyone will see the signature thing, Nancy--you can block them, which I do and I know quite a few others who do also. The blue header message that Teri mentioned will be displayed to anyone who visits your bookshelf.

You can also add this information to your profile, if you opted to have one.  To enter the information click on the My Account Menu at the top/Main and then click on the tab labeled settings.

Cheryl,

Good point. She could put it both places.  Just curious. Why do people choose to block the signature?

Thanks,

Nancy

Pictures of bare bodies showing up at work.  In front of the kids.  Blinkies flashing.

Well, you can just block the graphics (and since I do read PBS here at work, the somewhat risque photos and such might be a problem, although they don't personally offend me) but for me it's seeing the same signatures over and over and OVER again from people who post frequently, especially if they are long lists of books, deals, etc. I don't get into doing deals or play games so there's really no reason for me to need to see those things so it just cuts down on my scrolling time by cutting them out. :)

Thanks Cheryl and Emily,

I'm just nosy. I guess that's why I like to read the signatures, (lol)
