For those of us that have long reminder Lists and are always looking for deals, putting a link to your reminder List so other members can see it and possibly make you a deal, seems like a good idea. I could never really find a clear post on how to do that so thought I would put one in here since there seems to be some interest in doing this. Here are the directions.


After you have selected to put a book on your reminder list, add in a Tag that can say whatever you want (eg. mine is LetisR). Make sure there are no spaces or other characters in the name (I learned that the hard way). Add this same tag to each book on your reminder list (or at least the ones you want others to see).  Yeah, I know it’s a pain in the neck but it has to be done or your reminder list won’t appear. After you’ve put all that tags on all of the books on your reminder, click on one of your tags. You will see the correct URL for your RL on top of the page (where URLs usually appear). Highlight and copy that address.

Then go to your Settings (for your signature) or Profile’s page and type something like “My Reminder List.” Highlight it, click on the sideways 8 (the URL address link) in the editing menu above and paste your reminder list URL address into the URL  window and then click ok.  Viola! It’s done!

Are people still able to delete your TAG?  I've tried to look at several folks RL that they had set up this way and got a screen that said there are no books associated with that TAG or that TAG does not exist.

Good point, I think people can delete it. OH well, i'm not going to worry about it. I have so many books already I don't need to worry about my reminder list haha

I haven't had any problems with it. I only think they delete them if they feel they are offensive.

I have found that if they have their tag set up in the wrong format (i.e. spaces and such) or clicked on the tag, to get their list, from the wrong area and copied that URL instead of going into a book with their tag and clicking on that tag to get their list for the URL (whew that was confusing) it won't work. I've been trying to help another member to get hers set up correctly today and it can get really frustrating, but once it's set up, its kind of nice. I have had several people pm me about deals on books on my RL.
