Wow, my bookshelf has been dormant for awhile and now I have three different requests.  All three of them have requester conditions on them.   Are more people putting conditions on their requests than before or is this just an odd occurance?

there are so many new people that probably don't read the rules and are sending out books that are not postable which is why some are asking that the books meet PBS standards.

but I'd say it is probably more off an odd occurance

yes, I just posted a thread here the other day that I had just gotten three requests and all three had RC's...think it is happening more and more...

I've noticed more recently too!

I've noticed an increase as well, though most requests coming my way are still condition free.  I've also had good luck in having very straight forward conditions so that it's easy to see whether the book meets the condition or not so I didn't have any hesitation about sending the book out.

I put one on mine because I keep getting water damaged or written in books.  I got sick of it! I like to be able to repost and I hate it when someone takes advantage!

I've gotten a few with RCs lately as well, so there seems to be an increase, but the ones I've gotten have been the usual things I'd see before, like "no smoking environment" and "no ex-library books," so not seeing those where the PBS conditions are just re-stated.
