Just wanted to say, Thank you, to everyone who is so understanding. Now and then I send a pm to folks, reminding them of some rules they may not know of. Everyone has been very warm and receptive about this. No nasty pms back to me. Yea!!

Honestly, I'm not picking on anyone. Just saving a bunch of posts in a thead that say, You can't do that or shouldn't do that. I would rather pm than point it out in the thread.

You are such a great person Bernie! I always read what you put out here so I am up on rules and regs. I myself am grateful you are here. Whenever I see something in the BB that I think might not be allowed I don't worry about it because I know Bernie will take care of it. I love PBS and don't want anyone to jepordize it by not following the rules. Thank-you Bernie for taking the time to steer people in the right direction. Gloria

I am really new here and I really appreciate what you do. Someone sent me a pm about a few of the rules I was breaking. I can't remember if it was you or not, but it is much more pleasant to get a kind PM from someone than have someone post all your mistakes in a thread. Thanks so much for what you do!

Keep in mind there are really no hard and fast RULES per say in the Book Bazaar. When this part of the forums got started, it was kind all new and we figured stuff out as we go around.  The sticky thread at the top of the page, gives a lot of tips and tricks.  I wouldn't say folks are breaking rules. There has to be a better word for it. *lol*

In no particular order:

Asking for deals on books that are wish listed. IE: "I want deals on ____________ and ______________, pm me!!"  If _________ and ________ are wishlist books, its not ok to do that. There are some folks who have been wishing for books since 2005,  I'm one of them. So its like doing cuts in line. This one seems to really annoy the members more than most.

Offering more than one credit for a book.  IE: If you have my wish list book I'll give you 3 credits!!! The site states, 1 credit per book, unless audio books.

Offering credits in exchange for things other than books.

Those are just a few off the top of my head.

Really folks, I don't bite. There is no black mark on your record for making a mistake in the bazaar. Its not full of a million rules. It can be fun in here. Come on jump on in the water is fine.

I'm always happy to answer pms. :)

 I just wanted to say thank you, you do a wonderful job. Sometimes it can get nasty!! I've only had one nasty P.M. and I've not seen her since! Most everyone is awsome over here at PBS and that's why I love this site and it does help having someone point out the mistakes because you do it so eloquently:)

Keep up the great work, Christa:)
