What does this mean?   Can not send out single requests at this time but will send multiples for single credit no deals but if you only want one book thats fine.  I believe I'll run from that one.

Where did they post that?  The header on their bookshelf?

I think they are saying they will send out 2 books for 2 credits, but not 1 book for 1 credit.  And they also wont do deals, like 3 books for 2 credits.

I think it is against the rules here for you to require someone to order more than one book from your bookshelf.  Wether you want to do deals or not is up to each person.

It's also poorly worded.  It says no single orders but then it says if you only want one book that's fine.

Is that a PM from a member you requested a book from? I would PM them back that that cannot require someone to request more from them and if they cannot afford to send books when they are requested they need to put their account on Vacation Hold.

WOW, a run-on sentence of major proportions!

Apparently they were offering a deal & best I can figure it means the following... they are willing to make a deal for multiple credits but NOT deals for a single credit. HOWEVER, they ARE willing to send you a single book for a single credit.

Janet said "...I believe I'll run from that one."  Me too!  Life's too short to try and figure out what the poster really meant...and you'd still be guessing.

I actually had this situation, and the sender cancelled my order because there was nothing else I wanted from her shelf. I sent the info to TPTB, her shelf went on hold for a day, then it was back with all the SAME conditions. So while I was told by TPTB that it's against the spirit of the site, I don't know as they'll do anything about it.
