I sent a book out late December & used DC.  When I click "details" it shows the book as delivered on 01.06.09, but the requester hasn't marked it received.  Will I lose my credit if she doesn't mark it received?  Should I sent a kind pm asking if she's received it, or just leave it be?  Thanks!

If you used PBS DC than you would have gotten your credit the first time the book was scanned.  If you got DC through the Post Office than you'll need to wait until the person marks the books as such.   Since it's been a while a friendly PM double checking to see if they got it, but forgot to mark it received is ok.   One word of caution though, just because it says it was delivered ~ doesn't mean it was delivered to the correct person.

ETA: I just reread what you wrote and see that you did use PBS DC. Check your credit registry and you should see that you've gotten your credit.

I would PM and ask her if the book was received and if maybe she just forgot to mark it.  One thing to remember---the DC delivered doesn't actually mean it was delivered to the person to whom it was address, it just means it was delivered to a P.O. in that town/area.

Your credit is secure, regardless.  So don't worry too much!

Thanks for the replies!  I know I already received the credit, but I wasn't sure if it would be taken back if she doesn't mark it received.  I wanted to ask if she received it b/c I would hate for it to have gone to the wrong person!  I had a book go lost once & the wait was incredibly frustrating.  I'll send her a quick pm asking if she got it.  Thanks!
