I just got a request for a book.  I accepted the request.  Then I looked up the person (inquiring minds want to know) and this person doesn't have any books listed - period - no BL, NO WL, no Reviews, nothing.

Would you add a PBS DC to this before you sent it out?  I very seldom do that, but I'm leery on this one.

Any advise would be gladly accepted.  Thanks.  Pat

I didn't have all that stuff set up when I first joined... I just didn't know it was there for quite a while.  I think the default is to have no profile, etc.  I would go ahead and take a chance.  After all, we know that have at least 1 credit.

The PBS DC is a good idea.  That would guarantee you a credit.  I can see why you are hesitant though.

they might just have it hidden (the WL part) or maybe they put their shelf on vacation.

don't assume anything about them just because you can't see stats/info.  it doesn't necessarily mean anything

and no, I wouldn't add DC because the cost outweighs the 1 credit IMHO

Thanks everyone.  Never thought that maybe they didn't have anything showing on purpose.  Pat
