I plan on going ala carte after Feb 14. I know I will not be able to post in the forums, but I was wondering if I would still be able to post books directly to a friend and vice versa.

It looks like that option (Friends Direct) is only available if you are a Standard Member.

Amanda, I'm a limited member, and could click on your wish list, and the buttons were there for me to post a book directly to you (and I would've had I had any that were on your WL, LOL). Not sure if that holds true for ALC members though.

Good to know! It's a shame ALC members can't use the forums. :( If they could, one of them could answer this question.

A lot of ALC members chat over on goodreads. Contact MrsGrim88 if you can't find the group.

I was A la Carte for a few months.

 I could not use the "Friends Direct" which finds your friends that are wishing and saves you time from searching thru wl.  

I could go to someones wl and post directly to their wl.

I will be going ala carte on the 14th. I still have 22 swaps and even more credits left from last year. If I should start receiving more books from my WL I will reconsider paying again for a membership. I will miss the forums, and all the good information and help I can find here. That makes it difficult if a question or problem arises and no way to ask for help.  Does anyone know the name of the group in goodreads we ala carte members can chat with?

Can't ala carte members ask their questions directly to PB?  Probably get better answers. I also understood that ala carte could read the questions forum just not participate. Probably the question has already been asked and answered if you search the forum.

A La Carte Members can read the forums.  

Pretty sure A la Carte can use "Contact Us" link at the bottom of every page to ask for help.

I heard they can use live help and not sure about tour guide.

Thanks for the answers. Tomorrow I will be off the boards, though it's good to know I can still read them. Happy swapping, everyone!  smiley

My membership ends today, the 14th, and I'm not renewing.  I assume that I am still a limited member till the end of today.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
