On Hold for 1-2 days until more Credits are Donated/Received.

Around a Dozen PBSers have now donated Credits, and enough that Currently:

Multiple Limited and Multiple Standard Memberships will be freely gifted.   :-)

(if more Credits are donated, then more Memberships can be given)

 

Anyway, the focus is to provide a Membership to as many as possible that (1) can't currently fit the PBS Membership in their Budget; and (2) are also Credit Poor (those with credits can trade for a membership here); and (3) are currently not showing they have a Membership.

 

Okay, Please either Post below or Message me the Membership you want.

(if you swap more than 2 books per month, then you want the Standard Membership)

 

Lastly, i will be taking requests up to 8pm est on Saturday, February 14th.

(this is not a first to post/message offering; and if necessary, a random drawing to select people will happen)

Richard,

I'm not requesting a membership, but just wanted to say how kind I thought this was, both of you and of everyone whom donated their credits towards this. 

Yay for PBS kindness! :)

Richard helped me get a membership.  He is the best.  Kind does not express enough.  Proud to know you Richard.

Howdy again:

At this point, around a dozen PBSers have donated credits, and so now a few dozen Memberships are Available!   :-)

 

Additionally, i will divide the Credits between those writing for a Membership through 8pm Friday, and 8pm on Saturday (therefore, i will start sending out Membership Codes later tonight...).

:-)

NONE OF THIS WOULD BE NECESSARY IF RICHARD HAD NOT CHANGED ALL THE RULES AND MADE PAYMENTS NECESSARY!!!!  HE IS ONLY TRYING TO GET SOMEONE ON HIS SIDE.

 

REMEMBER: YOU WERE NOT NEEDING HELP BEFORE HIS 2 WEEK CHANGE

BONNIE, i think you have me confused with Richard, the Site Owner.

(it is only Members that is making this possible)

 

Lastly, one post would have been enough...

I will be staying on as an a la carte member and am not asking for a gift membership (because it is not the fees keeping me from buying a membership). However, I want to add my appreciation to the generous members who are making this possible. A kind gesture indeed!

(Edited for clarification.)

I'd really appreciate help getting a Limited Membership. I'll try to earn swap credits by shipping, so hopefully won't need a standard. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

I think what you are doing is very kind Richard.     yes

Bonnie you have mistaken This Richard ( who is kindly doing this)  with the site owner also named Richard.

"Bonnie, Take your venom elsewhere"   yesyes .

You've had a free site since you joined in 2007.  This is NOT a non-profit site and it does cost a lot to keep up.  Someone has to pay for the pleasure of swapping books and making good friends!!!

I love this PBS community and the good people here like Richard.  Thankfully, Bonnie is not an example of the people here.

Sent a PM to Trish

PS - Richard, you are one of the kindest and most generous players in the swaps and on PBS in general.  I almost feel guilty about beating you in the NFL game .  ALMOST.
