I was just reading the rules the other day and it said it is illegal on this site to offer to pay more credits to get a book on the wish list. I have one of these books on my wish list also and I must say I wouldn't be very happy with you paying more credits to cut in line ahead of me and I'm pretty sure everyone else on a wish list would feel the same.

Try to think about this being a long line to get something that everyone wanted and you trying to cut in line ahead of everyone else. I'm sure you wouldn't do that in person so why would you think it was okay to do it here?

I'm sorry if my post came across as not being nice. I wish now I had PMed you instead of answering here but I did look at when you became a member to see if you were new before I posted. I guess 6 months is probably still new, sorry I didn't think about that. I don't go to any of the other sites so had no idea any of them would allow such a thing either. I'm glad I belong to this site and not some of the others. PBS tries to be very fair to everyone.

I hope there are no hard feelings because I didn't mean for you to be offended. I was trying to make a point and guess I came across too heavy handed. I will be a lot more careful in the future about how I say something and try PMing a person first. Thanks for the reminder to think a little longer before I respond to someone.

For what it's worth Fulltimer (Elaine S.), I did not see any rudeness in your post.  Bernie (the Book Bazaar coordinator) posted a thread about Using the Book Bazaar and included that no one should feel badly for helping to explain the rules (of this site).  

It's not like you used all caps to get your point across.

Thanks James, that makes me feel a little bit better but I am still going to be a whole lot more careful how I explain the rules. I would never intentionaly try to make someone feel bad.

Thank you for the apology, it just read kind of harsh when I wasn't deliberatly trying to circumvent a rule or commit a no no. I am sorry that I reacted like I did .

I would have preferred a PM as things are handled on other sites instead of on the boards..but if that is acceptable at PBS that is good for me too...I just have to get used to different mores on the sites...

I really do appreciate your letting me know it was against TOS and I do try to respect all TOS agreements, but between 4 books sites, Titletrader, Bookmooch, Frugal Reader and this one I have troubles remembering what I can do where, and that is my own neglect, I should have reread it first and was to eager to get the rqt published once I thought it up...lol..

I was sitting here w/ 14 potential points and seeing how NOTHING is moving on the boards and I thought..shoot I would give up most of those for just one or two of my wl books!  Great intention and poor exectution, so please excuse me too...Congratulations on your apparently good book selections! :)  Nicky

Nicky:  I think that a good part of the problem is that many of the books on your WL are quite new ones, and thus everybody wants them.  I have waited for up to a year on new and popular books sometimes.  It's discouraging to find yourself 500th of 700 wishers!!  However, they do move and you sometimes find that they show up sooner than expected.  There is no solution, other than keeping watch for books that are very popular and putting them on the WL even before they are released---may not have to wait so long that way.
