re: small improvements

There were lots of comments to my recent blog entry small improvements so I thought I'd respond to all of them here with a new blog entry.



 Love the label idea but, what would make it even better is if you could print the labels for all books you've accepted with one click and format so that several go on one page rather then use a sheet of paper for each one.

That's a great idea. The only tricky bit is that I don't know where your "page break" is, so some labels will "page wrap" from one page to the next (1/2 the label on one page, 1/2 on the other) which is not so good. The solution is for me to make a PDF for you, but that's a lot more technically demanding for me. There is a "page break" command for HTML, but IE doesn't support it (it works in Firefox).

 Related problem: Mysterious Press-published books with an ISBN beginning 999 are being given a variety of countries instead of languages for "Published in". For example, 9994135600 is "Armenia", and 9994698648 is "Nepal".

Thanks for pointing that out, and giving me specific examples. I'll work on fixing that.

 I am not happy about the removal of the "reserve for friends" button. Is there anyway you can add buttons or something that would provide a list of my friends so I can add them to the "reserve" box with only a few clicks?

vs:

 Bless your hearts for ditching the "just your friends" option, which made it seem so easy to be exclusionary... the opposite of everything BookMooch encourages!

What I'm planning on doing is having an "add a member" button to the reserve function, which lets you easily find members by name/email/userid, and add them one at a time. Your friends would also be listed there. This is how the "add an administrator" feature works with the forums.

I think the problem with "reserve for friends" before was that it was the 1st choice, and thus pushed people to most often reserve for friends, whereas it probably should be used sparingly, when appropriate, rather than as the default. So... my plan is to leave the reserve feature as it is now (as you to specify the member(s) to reserve it for) but make the user interface for adding members easier, and list the friends there. Seems like a reasonable compromise, agreed?

 I was wondering why my copy of The Road printed in Nigeria only has US price markings on it.

and:

 I noticed when I posted one of my books by ISBN it didn't list the author. I removed it and hand typed the information but it still didn't print author's name. I think it would be good to know who wrote a book. thanks.

Can you provide an ISBN or URL to the book that shows your problem? I can't look into the problem otherwise.

 The next problem to address is dormant accounts. If a person hasn't logged onto bookmooch for a year or more, why is her/his account still active?

Indeed, that is next on my list to work on. The plan is to auto-vacation accounts that aren't logged into for 3 months.

 re: Logging on/off. All I do to log off is close down that window. Computer dinosaur that I am, is there something else I should do to leave the site?

The dinosaur approach is exactly correct: the easiest way to log off is to close your web browser.

 you will find some time to fix the search in non-latin characters, like greek.It is something that used to work but has stopped and now it is impossible to search if a greek book is available or list it in the wishlist.

Sorry about that, I do have that on my list of things to fix: it's very, very trick to get searching working for all languages.

In the meantime, you can find books with non-english characters using the book's ISBN code.

Thanks John for dealing with the long dormant accounts, I don't know how many times I log on for a book only to find no one has been there for months. I Wonder where you get all the time to deal with our mooch problems, Great job and many thanks.

Thanks John. That's sounds like a great compromise on the "reserve" feature. It will make it easier for me to reserve for only those of my friends that read the same genre I am listing without bothering those that don't read that particular type of book. We really appreciate all the hard work you put in to keeping this one of the best sites available.

I have run into a problem with marking a book lost (and so has someone I sent a book too, so it isn't just me!). When I try to mark it as lost it says I Have to send a reminder. I do so and then it says I can't mark the book as lost because I am not the person who sent it. Has it been intentionally changed so that only the owner of the book can ever mark a book as lost?

Also, just curious if they dormant accounts are 'vacationed' will they still be visible to others or will they be hidden?

>> Indeed, that is next on my list to work on. The plan is to auto-vacation accounts that aren't logged into for 3 months.

In languages with less demand, such as Catalan, and in some kind of Spanish books, some moochers do not enter because demand is low (and they may not be requested nor find what they were looking for), but they answer when requested. I'd reconsider it. I personally never had problems with three months, up to the moment. Maybe six, nine months?

Thanks for all!

John, I can't thank you enough for the site. It just tickles me pink to know you so carefully contemplate our little issues in such depth. I think to many of us they seem like little tweaks that make us so happy, but I suspect that really they take a lot of thought and work to bring to fruition. I know I'm one of many who just want to express appreciation and gratitude to you and your team.

I really appreciate all your hard work on managing and improving the site, thanks so much! As long as we are discussing improvements, however, I do have another suggestion. Perhaps I am not thinking the logistics all the way through as you have, but I do find it frustrating that a book on my wishlist will show up as available (and I'll receive an email notification), but when I click on "Mooch," it tells me that it has already been requested by someone else or reserved for someone else. I find that 99% of the time the book is reserved for someone else or the person is not willing to send to my country. I don't think I'd mind the "not willing to send to my country" nearly as much as I mind the books reserved for someone else - is there any way to prevent these from showing up as moochable until they truly are available to me? I find myself playing a little game where I click on the "mooch" again to see if maybe it is no longer reserved or the reservee missed their deadline - which will come into play even more now that you have set a limit on the time a book can be reserved. I guess the bottom line is that I find myself more and more clicking on "mooch" to find that the book is really not moochable. :(

Instead of auto-vacation, I'd really prefer that some site text be changed to emphasize how easy it is to vacation someone for nonresponse. I have received a number of books from people who haven't logged in, and just cancelled to vacation those who never responded.

If auto-vacation happens, then it should definitely be longer than 3 months.

I also think it would be good to indicate upfront whether a book is reserved on the wishlist, and not show a mooch button unless it's reserved for you.

Mooch buttons for books whose owners don't ship to your country need to stay. Without the mooch button you wouldn't know the book was available and you wouldn't know you could ask an angel in that country to mooch it for you.

John, your efforts, as always, are greatly appreciated. I am very happy that inactive members will be auto-vacationed after a period of time. I have several books that have been taunting me for a long time.

As frustrating as it is to see a book listed as available that is from someone who won't send to your country, I'd like to point out that it can still be useful to see that information. In the case of a book where the owner won't send to your country all you need to do is go over to the angel thread on the forums and request an angel from that sender's country. The entire angel network functions on the ability to see books that are listed from users only willing to send to their own country. I would encourage people to give requesting an angel a try. I have received many wonderful books this way, and am glad that I was able to see that the book had been listed even if it took a couple extra steps for me to acquire it.

I definitely don't agree with auto-vacationing an "inactive" account. Some people simply aren't as addicted to BookMooch as we are! I have a few friends from elsewhere online who maintain a BM account and always respond to requests, but they don't log in *unless* they get a request. I've had many mooches where that's the case, as well. I think auto-vacationing just for lack of logging in would deprive a lot of people, and lessen the mooching pool.

Sarah Wrightson: That topic has been discuessed many times among BMers, and the majority feeling is that the current system is the most fair and best way. Think about it this way: Right now, a wishlisted book is listed, everyone has a shot at it, no matter how long they've been on the site. The other way, newbies would have absolutely NO shot at getting a highly-wished book, sometimes for YEARS, simply because they didn't learn about the site earlier? That wouldn't be fair.

What is needed is a *separate* section for Catalan-language books. At the moment they are *jumbled* in with the Spanish-language books. That's not fun, and shows a certain ... well, linguistic disregard. Should I mention more people speak Catalan then, say, Dutch or Swedish?

In regards to the auto-vacationing feature geared at inactive accounts, I have a suggestion. People are making the valid point that some users don't log in to their account unless they have a reason, such as a mooch request which would show up in your email inbox. So, how about instead of auto-vacationing users who did not log in for 3 months, they get an email telling them that their account will be auto-vacationed in, say a week, unless they log in. That way, people who are not interested can ignore the email and be auto-vacationed, and people who want to keep their accounts open will have a reminder asking them to log in to their account. Wouldn't that work?

I like the slick and simple way the current system handles unresponsive members. It lets the BookMooch community decide whose books are shown and whose books are hidden. A desirable goal is to hide the inventories of people who won't send books, and the system gives us the power to hide those inventories. If someone who hasn't logged on in awhile has no books you want, then their inventory shouldn't bother you. If they have a book you want, mooch it. If the person sends the book there's no problem. If the person doesn't respond, cancel the mooch and select that the person didn't respond as the reason you cancelled. That puts their account on vacation and hides their books.

Yes, as for me, I'd really appreciate. A book published in Spain may be published in Spanish, but many are in Catalan, and some in Galician or Basque. And, of course, a Catalan reader gets lost if (s)he has to look for Catalan books in the middle of all of the Spanish books (from Spain or America).

I do not know how it could be done. The ISBN per se doesn't include the information. Amazon isn't quite an expert in the field (logically) and many Catalan books are missing from its database. Personally, when I add a catalan book I try to remember to include in the title words as "catalĂ " or "catalan". But many might have been already introduced by another user without that option.

Thanks for all, as always

Yeah, that's a very good idea to remind hibernating moochers first that their account will shortly go on vacation if they don't log in. I think that's a good compromise. Maybe remind twice??

Me too! I've contacted tech support, but haven't heard back yet - the book in question has been outstanding for over three months now, and I'd really like to be able to mark it "lost" (I've checked with the sender that she has no objections) and move on ... siiiiighhh.

I am fairly new to BookMooch, but I am so impressed with the site. I have received books I was not able to find locally and hopefully able to share books with others THEY had not been able to otherwise locate, as well as just swap tomes. I really appreciate the site, the site builder and the concept he has brought to us for NO PERSONAL RECOMPENSE. Thank you for what you do. This moocher commends you.

There is a gap in the system that I think should be fixed. I require that International moochers ask me first. When they do that, the book is automatically reserved for them. Out of either malice or ignorance, some people have mooched the book before I gave permission. Because it is reserved, they can do that. My only options are to reject the mooch, which I am loathe to do or accept it. In all cases, I write them a note telling them that I am unhappy with what they did. In only one case did I eventually reject the mooch. If it happened more than once or if the person was unresponsive to my follow-up, I guess I could report them as abusers of the system, but until now, I have not needed to do that. I wonder if this is fixable.

I did find a work-around. If I know I'm going to turn down the request, I immediately cancel the reservation. One time, even that didn't work.

I also want to add my appreciation for the fact that Bookmooch exists and to John for the loving care he gives it. The only upsetting thing about Bookmooch is the amount of time I spend on the site. Thanks, John!

I second Gonzalo's comment re how long to wait to automatically put an account on vacation. Yes, it's frustrating to get excited about a book whose owner turns out to be gone forever, but a lot of "possibly inactive" accounts are in fact just waiting for someone to inquire. So something longer than three months. Four or six or longer.

And I second Robin's suggestion of a reminder email. That would probably suit people who log in seldom due to low demand, and people who currently don't have time for BookMooch for one reason or another.

When searching for books by topic I find many, many titles that are in no way related to the topic I chose -- for instance under "Cooking, Food and Wine" is listed "Blow Out: An FBI Thriller". Huh? This makes browsing very cumbersome.

The Book Mooch concept is a good one, however, though many individuals have requested my books, the vast majority of my searches for specific books -- usually book club type books -- have turned up empty. Very frustrating. I'll keep trying though.

Miriam Heilman

Hi Andrea, I find it quite useful to find a book that has already been mooched. I just trace where it has gone and then ask the moocher if they think of relisting to reserve it for me if they are willing. I have received a number of books this way, which partly makes up for not having my computer running all day, not having a phone app. (no mobile works here!) and not having any automatic message alerts.

How long should we wait for someone to send a book? Got a "delay" on it--did not say how long. Sent 3 reminders--it has been more than 6 wks. Why then should the requester be forced to cancel? It should be automatic with a notice and a week to respond or be cancelled.

Re: on vacation / inactive accounts
Perhaps there should be a different designation, such as "inactive" for those who are given the label, saving "on vacation" for those who are self-identifying as temporarily unavailable.

"On vacation" should be for those of us who have the misfortune to be separated from our BookMooch accounts for a time, not for those who login, but don't respond to requests (nor reminders, nor plain old emails) from folks who had their hearts set on a book from their list. A kind message to ask these folks if they would like to remain members, but warning that they will be set to inactive seems appropriate.

This could help declutter a bit. After all, on vacation members' wishlists are still posted, even if their inventory is not. (I recently posted a new book, saw 4 people were wishing, but all were "on vacation" with lengthy times since log-in.)

Thanks, John, for listening and for all you do to make this such a blessing to book moochers everywhere!

Miriam,

It's my understanding that the topics associated with books is data that comes from Amazon, and as you have noticed, it is often inaccurate.

You will probably be frustrated by your efforts to use BookMooch to get specific books at specific times. I see your wishlist only contains one book. One way to enjoy BookMooch and get a lot of books is to make a large wishlist and then check it frequently so you'll see when books become available. It's also useful to wishlist every edition of each title you want. That way you're more likely to see when that title is offered by someone. I did that with award-winning science fictions and after a few months I had mooched dozens of books. Good luck!

Ed,

It is never okay for someone to not wait for permission on an 'ask' request.

If they do not cancel when you asked them to, then click 'abuse.'

The system needs to be flexible though, as many have bio messages allowing some within their region to goahead and mooch (say within Europe, or within NA), or have given advance permission for other reasons.

On topics -- the data comes from the publishers, to Amazon and then through to Bookmooch, so is not 100%. It takes a little while to see which topics are most commonly used correctly. The Bookmooch 'recent' topics list has been vetted and those are used correctly most of the time.

>> Perhaps there should be a limit on the number of books individuals should be able to mooch from abroad if one's own preferences are set to 'Only to my own country'?

One has to think that mail prices are not the same anywhere. It is fairly more economical to send books from UK to Spain than from Spain to UK. The same happens when comparing the US and Spain. (I just mention cases I know well). Therefore, with the same amount of money, what you'll be able to do really depends on which country you are.

I guess this is something one has to think for himself. If you really mooch internationally, you should do the effort to send internationally. There is something of a moral duty (imho).

But some cases are simply impossible. Recently someone asked me for a kind of economical edition which was nearly four times cheaper to buy with free delivery in his country than to send from my country as an used book. What should I do? I offered to buy the new book. It was logical from the economical point of view, but hardly logical from the moocher point of view.

I guess this is something one has to think as well for himself. If sending a 2-pounds-book across the sea will cost the sender as much as it would cost the user to buy it new, isn't it somewhat unfair (unless he really, really can't afford it otherwise)?

These are only ideas I brood over, I do no mean to criticize anybody. As far as my experience goes, most of the users of the system are nice people who do as much as they can. In my experience, I have not found any relevant abuse. On the contrary!

Thanks to John for this space and all its hard work, and to all the moochers who send internationally.

Hi John,
Great job you are doing. I am delighted that charities feature on Bookmooch BUT
I have just been trying to give away some of my surplus points as I do periodically. Looking through all the charities I notice that people often donate to charities which are not using their points, or to charities that are inactive.
Whilst I realise many educational organisations may not be active over the holidays, it would be useful if, in the charities listing by category, the total points the charity has and the last time they were on Bookmooch showed, in order to enable people to make a wiser choice as to where they donate their points.
Ideally point-poor charities would be moved up the list, and point-rich ones further down, but I realise that may be impracticable.

Re: previous comments about Amazon's frequently ludicrous topics for books, i.e. M's example of "Cooking" for an FBI Thriller. I too have found this frustrating. Perhaps another topic line (a drop and drag menu of topics) could be added so that when a person lists a book, he/she could choose the one topic he/she felt was most appropriate? The simple topic line could be an optional feature, so that people who didn't want to bother with it don't have to, whereas those of us who want a better search feature could. Of course, then there would need be to search a search by second topic line feature....

Now that I'm writing this, this seems like a lot of work for you, John. Feel free to disregard:)

It's perfectly simple to add a short review of your book, at the bottom tag of the book description. It can be as simple as "This is a who-dunnit" or a long review. If you hand-add a book there is a topic slot where you can write in topics yourself too.

I love book mooch. Have been using it for 2 years now, and had pretty much no problems. The system is easy to use, and after just poking around at other book swap sites, I refuse to use anything else. This system is good and it works!

That being said, my only suggestions are:

1. An ignore button for books that you have on your wishlist, but either won't send to your country, or the condition is not to your liking. That way it won't continue to pop up in your list. You could just ignore that specific users listing, and only see when new editions come up.
2. The ability to delete more than one book at a time. Sometimes, I like to clean up my list by deleting titles that I've already mooched (multiple editions on my list) or have found elsewhere. It's a bit time consuming to manually go through and delete every title, especially with a long list. If I could highlight a few and delete them all at once, that would be great!

Just a few suggestions. Again, love what you're doing. I'm a book moocher for keeps.

thank you for all of your wonderful work. i joined bookmooch several years ago, and appreciate it very much.

i do have one small comment/suggestion:
i have a fairly large and static wishlist (3 pages long), mainly because the books i like are esoteric non-fiction. on the occasions when something on my wishlist is moochable, and i request/secure it, i must then manually delete that book from my wishlist. twice i have accidentially mooched a book more than once, because i forgot to delete it from my wishlist and so forgot that i already had a copy. would it be possible to have an auto-remove function for the wishlist, so that if i successfully mooch a book, that title will disappear from my wishlist?

<3 the site!

tiggergrrl

I can see a problem with that! Or a couple:
One, many people wishlist multiple editions and that might be difficult to delete all, or only the one mooched?
Two, and more importantly, in my charity I have multiple recipients and often need up to a dozen copies of the same book. I would then have to keep adding the book back into my wishlist every time I found a copy! If you think manually deleting a book you have mooched from your wishlist is tiring try mooching for many people with different wishlists, different addresses and keeping up with refusals which show up in the mooched column along with received books!

Karen, the best thing in your instance is to know what you are looking for. Even just know one book of interest.
Firstly, go to Amazon.com, search for a specific well-known eg: history) book. (I say well-known because you're more likely to get a fruitful search.)
You will get all the details for that book.
Just a little down the page there is the sub-title "Customers who bought this item also bought..."
There are then heaps of books related by topic to the original search book.
You can then add anything of interest to your BM wishlist.
While writing this I did a search for "Night" Elie Wiesel, which then brought up several related books, & those in turn brought up their own 'cross-referrals'.
I have alot on WW2 & specifically Holocaust in my WL, names of most I got from prowling around Amazon, just while originally looking for only one book.
Some of the topics of books assigned here on BM can be way-off & inaccurate, mislead by info BM gets from Amazon. (I think that's why)
I find this curcuitous way around through Amazon & back again, is the best way to get books on my WL.

Hope that helps, M

That's strange M because when I want to put a book on Amazon, I find it better to search for it on Bookmooch, which brings up far more editions, including ones that are not presently available on Amazon, than searching directly in Amazon!

As much as one can be disappointed at other people getting a wish listed book, I prefer it to the rigidity of the first come first serve wish lists of other swap sites that are no where near as easy and great to use as BM. I don't mind so much if one gets taken out from under me because everyone has the same chance, an even playing field. I like things the way they are!!!And they keep getting better!!!:)

Eileen,

When I look at your pending page I only see one item, which you sent on June 30.

If you are seeing more pending items, it could be that you're seeing an old copy of your pending page saved in your browser's cache. To make sure you're seeing the current page click View on your browser's menu bar and then Refresh in Internet Explorer or Reload in Firefox.

If you're concerned about the book you sent June 30, you can click the Remind button, which will send the moocher an email reminding him or her to mark the book received.

If you were seeing an old cached copy of your pending page, then it's likely you're seeing old copies of many pages. You can change how often pages are updated.

In Internet Explorer click Tools in the menu bar, then Internet Options at the bottom. On the General tab of Internet Options, click the settings button in the Browsing History section. Under "Check for newer versions of stored pages" there are several frequency options. Click the one you want, then click OK at the bottom of the window, and OK at the bottom of the remaining window.
