I suppose there's an explanation, but I don't quite understand how a member can join as of last June, have no books posted, 1 book mailed, and 3 books received.

Aren't you supposed to list so many to join?  I guess the person must be buying credits for the wish list?  I often take a look at stats and I've never seen one like this.

Thanks for any clarification.

You have to post so many books to get the first couple of free credits, but posting books isn't a requirement to join. Your can  just buy credits instead of giving up your books..

Thanks, Heather.  It's been awhile and I guess I thought you were supposed to participate a bit anyway.  Okay, I guess he did participate "a bit" :)

That is odd. Even if he were buying credits for WL books, those would show as rec'd. Guess he's just around for the company.

well, he may have joined and posted 10 books to get the credit; then removed his books. so he got 2 freebies (or she) and then one book for the one he mailed.  so he got 3 books for the price of 1.

It might also be that they removed some books from their shelf after the had been members for a while.
