    4. 4. Other
      • a. If you wish to post a 'list' of items within one request post, please delete/amend the list as appropriate when requests are filled, that helps us help you.
      • b. Please be patient if your request hasn't had any response. If your request hasn't been filled after 2 weeks, you may bump your request.
      • c. If you find the item that you requested yourself, please post on your thread as soon as possible.
      • d. You're not obliged to, but I would recommend that you 'subscribe' to the thread so that you receive notification when the request is filled. The filler may notify you by PM that they have filled your request. You may thank them by PM, but please, also thank them in your request thread.

    Filling A Request
    1. 1. Where to place the links

      • a. Return to the request thread and provide a link to the post you just created in the general forums. Example:“Your request has been posted here - (Link to be posted here.)“
      • At your discretion, you may also PM the requester that you have filled their request

    3. 3. Small Requests
      • a.There may be circumstances when it's not necessary to create a new thread in order to fill a small request (for example: a single mp3 track or a single episode from a tv series. If you are not starting a new thread, you may PM the requester any info or links you have for them...but please post on the thread to let others know. The requester should also respond in their thread to let everyone know if that satisfied their request.

    4. 4. Marking and Moving Requests Posts/Threads
      • a. Once a request had been filled, it will have [Filled] added to it’s title. This will let request fillers know that the request has been filled. This will save them time by not having to open and read threads that have been filled.
      • b. Once a filled request has been thanked by the requester, the request will be moved to the “Filled Request Archive.” If a requester has not thanked the filler within 2 weeks of the request being filled, it will also be moved to the “Filled Request Archive”.
      • c. If the request has not been filled within 60 days, the request will be moved to the “Dead Request Archive”. Once a request is placed in the “Dead Request Archive”, the requester is free to re-request that item.
