Q. How can I get hold of the books?
A. Girls Gone By Publishers
are currently reprinting the books in unedited versions with the original illustrations, however, many have already gone out of print.
A good source for paperbacks, hardbacks or GGBP is ebay, and there is a list of children’s book dealers here
in Sales and Wants. There is also the Chalet Transcripts
website, where Word versions of out of print books can be found and more information about how to join can be found in this
thread. Please be aware that because of copyright issues we do expect members to make every effort to purchase a copy of the book before accessing the transcript.
Q. Are the books abridged?
A. Yes many paperback editions of the books were abridged for publication, the early paperbacks by EBD herself! For a full guide to edits you can download a ticklist
for yourself and keep tabs on what books you own.
Q. I have an idea for the board. How can I make it?
A. We have a special forum where all members are welcome to make suggestions called The Suggestions Box
. These suggestions are discussed by the mods and the Squeen in detail and an answer given as soon as possible. If an idea is not taken up a reason will normally be provided.
Q. What do the mods do?
A. Heaps of stuff! All the mods are assigned a selection of fora to looks after. They are the people to contact if you have any questions or problems about that fora, and they will always try and help and sort out any issues as quickly as possible. Mods also do general housekeeping (deleting double posts and fixing wide posts), and regular archiving and deleting old posts.
Mods are also here to keep you safe, and are very on the ball to notice dodgy posts. It is important though that every member be on their guard about this and if you spot anything or receive a private message you do not think is appropriate, please contact a mod immediately.
