How do you just send a credit to someone as a gift.

Click on their name, then you'll see a "send PM" or "give credits" message, so just click on the give credits link (you'll then get a prompt to ask for how many credits to give)

Please do not use this method for refunds.  Refunds should only be done through the Transaction Archive, as that will keep a record of the credit.  The credit gifts are in your record for only six months.  The Transaction Archive has a longer record. 

We can send a PM about the gift, then archive the PM for a longer record.

Thanks for the tip Emily. I haven't had to refund credits but probably would have done so through the gift option.

The credit gifts are in your record for only six months.

WE see them in our Credit Registry for only a limited time. The site sees all our activity in our accounts forever. So even if you can't see your gift of a credit now at some point in the future, the site admins will be able to look at your account and see it should you ever have questions about it Doug.
