re: Emails have changed

@lizbiz This is an international site and it looks like a someone from Italy has just joined and posted quite a few books. Because new members joining and older members adding books has slowed down, one new member putting up their inventory can take up quite a bit of the recent books page for a day or so. There used to be a way to filter the results by country, but I don't think there is anymore.

re: Emails have changed

it seems like Yahoo wasn't the only email provider not allowing Bookmooch emails through. Hopefully this will fix the problem!

@Sylvia Try posting your request here: A book search among friends Also, it is not a good idea to post your email address in a public forum.

re: Doom & gloom?

True for Canada as well: domestic has always been more expensive. But that is evening out since they have increased the international rates: over $18 for 2 books to Israel surface mail. This translates to over $3 a point which makes books for me to mooch cost over $9. Only a deal for rare and hard to find. I send about three times a year now mostly when I am planning a trip over the border unless to special mooching friends.

re: Doom & gloom?

P.S. and slightly off topic. The wiki has been hacked again. Could someone with experience please restore the earlier version? Thanks (I'll cross post this in the discussion forum).

ETA: and it's been fixed! Thanks bookarts

Update this page: http://bookmooch.com/m/points thanks;) It's right at the bottom in the table, but not further up the page.

re: Doom & gloom?

John has mailed books to me in Canada, although he doesn't send bookmarks and cards to us. The point change made mooching uneconomical for Canadians and we have dropped to less that 600 members when we were nearly 2000 before the change. With the increase in postage rates and fewer members sending internationally, we are usually relaying on a wonderful group of Bookmooch angels and a few mooching buddies to make it worthwhile to continue. I personally am posting books to my inventory and sending once every few months now. I used to spend $50-$60 on postage every two weeks.

@ Margaret H. from the pull down menu in your wishlist, go to settings. Select email for related editions. The related editions will now show on your wishlist.

re: Doom & gloom?

John, Thanks for checking in. a) Since you can't personally change the postal systems of all our countries to make them make more sense;) perhaps there could be some information pages about the best way to mail books domestically as well as internationally for the top ten or so countries represented here. Perhaps this might help people realize that sending internationally is not as scary (or expensive) as they think. b) When accounts are "vacationed" after a very long period of inactivity, is there some way their wishlists could be hidden so the wishlists are a more accurate reflection of how many active moochers are actually looking for a book? c) Add the ability to put a feedback comment on books reported "lost" (since this is occasionally done in error). d) Some kind of incentive program or contest for bringing in new members?
