Hi Dayna,

Is it possible your friends wasn't expecting you to do this and happened to be out of credits when you posted the DVD to her wishlist?

Why worry about the site selling credits when you could worry about the site's ability to issue thousands of free credits to anyone they like? (I don't think that they do [aside from the initial free credit per account], but they could, and how would we know if they did?).

Note that the sites do also accept credits back through the Bargain Books program on PaperbackSwap, which presumably helps balance out the free and site-sold credits. Perhaps a similar program for DVDs will be coming here in the future.

I don't see a problem with it - you've made 37 members happy by giving them a credit for their copy, and you can only use one slot on the wishlist, anyone coming after you will get the second copy posted (ignoring the effects of priority ranking).

Opinions might be somewhat different if this was a particularly rare and valuable DVD, but if that were the case there presumably wouldn't have been 37 copies in the system and would be a lot more wishers.

In this case, I'd encourage you to continue to do what you can to make posters of this fine title happy. While waiting for another copy of Velcro, maybe you could do something to make posters of Link happy?

I would classify it under "Fantasy" rather than "Science Fiction".

If you bring up a movie that you know is in Spanish, there is usually a clickable "spanish" link as part of the listings, which will bring up all (well, the first 10,000 anyway) spanish-language titles.

The "advanced search"  option under the search menu does have a Language option, though you do have to specify some other main filter such as genre.  You probably want to anyway, as there are over 10,000 spanish language movies.

In a similar fashion, if you bring up any "Indie & Art House" movie, you can click on that genre name to bring up all the movies in that genre.

Another way than what?

USPS first class and media mail are usually the least expensive options for mailing books.

But other delivery services such as UPS, FexEx, DHL, etc. could certainly be used (except for PO Box addresses).

No.  The idea of a sister swapagame site was being talked about 5 or so years ago but I haven't even heard a mention of it for a long time.

Send email to Team@swapadvd.com with the subject line "Please close my account"

It isn't actually the swapadvd site that is specifying Outlook.  The button is just a common "mailto:" html link.  Your broswer's preferences likely have Outlook specified as the application to use for document type "mailto".  My guess is that you are using Internet Explorer; you can change the setting with Tools->Internet Options->Programs->Internet programs (Set programs).  Scroll down past all the file extensions starting with "." and you should find a "MAILTO" option.  Select MAILTO and press the (Change program...) button.

Questions about SwapaDVD - What is an o-ring? - View Inline

Common usage is a ring-shaped gasket made of a flexible material.  An o-ring burning through caused the space shuttle Challenger disaster.

As used on this site, it appears to mean a cardboard slipcover that goes over the dvd case.

Curiously, this use may derive from the term "obi" (Japanese for belt) as books in Japan are sometimes published with a narrow paper ring over the dustjacket.  Link
