Australasia Wishlist Tag Game

Decided to give this a whirl and see if it takes off!


- Make sure you have the sort options set to "Flat - Latest First" so you can see who is next in line to be tagged.
- Simply check their Wishlist, and if you have a book that features there, and are happy to pay the postage to send the book to them, tag away!

- Title your post with "I tag <member name>"
- Before Tagging, please ensure your Wishlist is up to date.
- Please also state whether the book you are Tagging with is TBR or whether it is ready to send straight away.
- PM the BCer for their address.

- If you want/need to say something here besides tagging somebody or just want to bump the thread, please title your post "still <member name> to be tagged" or something similar.

- Rather than posting in this thread to thank people when your book arrives, please use the following thread instead:
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/459720

- Should you wish to include a link to this thread in your journal entry, please copy and paste the following HTML text:
sent/received this book in relation to the <a href=http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/10/516705/> <font color="blue"> <b>Australasia Wishlist Tag Game</b> </a> <font color="black">

Sounds a trifle complicated - I'll wait and see what happens but it sounds a good scheme once I see how it works.
Thanks for alerting me directly as I seldom trawl through the threads.

Is there a way to follow this thread in case you have a book that someone is after

Is there a way to follow this thread in case you have a book that someone is after

Unfortunately there is no way to follow a thread in BookCrossing.
It might be worth PMing the BCer you have in mind, asking them to PM you if they Tag someone.
Other than that, its just a case of keeping a close eye on the thread.
The more Wishlists you check, the longer your own will get!

What does Bump indicate??
Profile Image
What does Bump indicate??

It moves the thread to the top of the forum list.

It means no one has replied to tag you. I guess the pool of people playing is quite small in this Pacifica version of the game. You could think of adding more books to you wish list in case that helps move the game alone.
