I was reading some posts and noticed one PBSer said that her account is currently on hold due to an excess of accumulated credits...I didn't know this was possible....what is the maximum number of credits one can have before your account gets placed on hold?


I have a lot of books on my wish list but they are slow in getting to my turn...and I don't want my account on hold due to too many credits!

I think that member meant she had put her account on vacation/hold herself.

I'm pretty sure you can have as many credits as you want and I don't think that PBS ever puts accounts on hold because of excess credits.  Maybe that person put her account on hold so no one would request any of her books thus earning her  more credits.  At one time I had well over 100 credits and didn't have a problem.

Duh...I didn't think of that...that it would be *her* putting her account on hold..LOL 

I was trying to wrap my mind over the logic of PBS putting an account on hold because of too many credits!

I'm more likely to have it put on hold because of lack of credits. <G> I just can't seem to build them up. It's worse than having a dollar burning a hole in your pocket. LOL

If she has too many credits I would be more than willing to take a donation as I am completely dry.  LOL My bookshelf (as small as it is) is on hold because I just haven't had as much time as I would like to devote to the site right now.  My life has once again become total and utter chaos. LOL
