I'm not sure what this message is trying to complain about, or if this is just a spam message to be ignored. Over the last two decades, I have been releasing many books in the two hundred or so Little Free Libraries in…

I have been involved with BX since 2003, and PaperBackSwap (PBS) since 2006. I really feel that there is a great deal to be gained by more interaction between individuals in the two groups, even though their goals are …

Thanks to "quietorchid", I just got drawn into the LFL movement. I can't think of better allies in BX's concept ... we send books on holiday trips, and LFL's are their travel agents! ;) Instead of releasing at cof…

I hope that our hundreds of dedicated bookcrossers here have had some effect on this!! MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new study ranking the most literate cities in the nation has both Minneapolis and St. Paul in the top 10. …

Okee-Doekee! Given that I just noticed two entries ago that the situation has reverted, I will return to entering thoughtful categories. ;-)))) PJLareau

This might be a forgotten intended change, rather than a "feature"! Why is Book Category a required field on the Register Book entry screen? Some time ago you removed displaying statistics by category (which I fu…

I only noticed this a couple of minutes ago. When releasing a book, the release notice has started printing the "from" line as an "at" line. That is to say, it reports that instead of the sender "from" the sender's …

In general, it works well (thanks!!), but there is one small bug. After adding a new zone, next, and close, you are taken back to the Location Info page from which you came, but the new zone you just entered is not yet …

That IS what happens if you enter the BCID in the small box down in the body of the page rather than in the big box at the top. Still does for me. I kind of stumbled on the use of the top box by accident, as the instru…

If you enter your label # in the BIG entry block at the TOP of the journal entry page (don't forget to enter the "-" in the BCID), next, then you can enter the ISBN (no dashes) in the body and search for it. When ever…

Yes, that is the one truly major release problem that I have left. I suspect that's on Matt's release plate, but I would also bet that is a major functionality upgrade.

I have been working without problem taking advantage of the overnight fix to releases with BCID beginning with zeroes. Suddenly, two releases in a row, the software has decided to create its own location as it goes al…

Minor bug. Member release leaders is showing a duplicate list of member registration leaders instead. Low priority. Subject line edited by bcsupportteam for clarity

I'm on Windows 5.3 At first, I was pretty much unable to release anything, and was also getting this error sporadically when registering books too. As of this morning, releasing most books seems to work fine. The on…

Works for me except where the book to be released has a BCN Prefix beginning with a "0".

As of this morning, I can release books without getting this error message ... except in one circumstance. I still err out whenever the book I'm releasing has a BCN prefix beginning with "0". Bet it has something to d…

We aren't talking a few places here ... there are thousands of these areas, with every "town" (which is defined in NY state as what others of us living outside New England would refer to as a "township") containing sever…

Researching some of NY's "missing places" in Wikipedia, I may have come on the answer to what these hidden places are, and why only in NY. They seem to usually be officially recorded as "hamlets", a designation that leg…

Is there someone out there with edit authority over New York state that can explain why there are ANY hidden towns? Most of the books that I release outside of Minnesota or neighboring states are controlled releases t…

I played with it this morning, and have no problem adding cities to other states if I carefully follow directions. I cannot, however, do so in New York state. This has been true for as long as two years ago. By the w…

I'm sure this comes up frequently ... at lease it sure does for me. New York state lists very few of its small towns, and the "add city" does not work in that state? Is there some kind of software glitch there, or is …
