I know I've seen it somewhere  but I'll be darned if I know where.  (grin).  Some of the abbreviations you folks use is lost on me.  What is RC?


Would someone please tell me where I can find the list of abbreviations?  Thanks soooo much!  : )

An RC is a requestor condition. They are "special conditions" for the books that you receive from PaperBackSwap.When you activate an RC, Requestor Conditions will apply to every request you make. Your conditions should be easy to understand, and should NOT require further clarification in Personal Messages. (Do NOT say "PM me if unsure", as the sender will NOT be able to PM you without first accepting your request.)

For example, you can say "I am not willing to accept books that have been around cats" or "I am not willing to receive books that are currently in a smoking home." It means some one requesting a book can ask for something specific.

If you search the Help Center for PBS Glossary, you should get the document that explains many of the PBS abbreviations.
