Hello! I'm a huge fan of the Chalet School books and many of my dreams growing up were to attend a school like it! Sadly, a potential move across the world means selling on my collection (about 45 books). I'd love them to go to a home that loves them too - any ideas on how to go about this?

Hi Mrs Campbell - we do have a sales and wants section on the board. :-)

Please feel free to join in the chat on other fora as well.

I want to add a picture to my username but can't find a 'profile' option at the top of the page (as indicated at the start of this thread when the question was previously asked). Has the procedure changed?

Thanks

Is anyone else having problems with the drabble archives? I'm managing to get to the drabbles I want (so they're not the ones eaten by the Lycos site) but they are loading increeeeedibly slowly or crashing entirely. Case in point, Pat's wonderful Eustacia/Stacie fic: http://www.the-cbb.co.uk/board/archive/ ... 031005.htm

That one works fine for me. Maybe certain browsers don't like it? I'm using IE9, if that's any help.

The Stacie drabble works fine for me. I'm on Safari on an iPad.

I'm on Chrome and it won't load properly for me. Starts to and then the pages become unresponsive. I often have trouble with the archives. In fact I have more or less given up trying to access drabbles there.

In the Sally Denny Library, how can I get a whole list of an author's stories if they have more than twenty five? I've tried sorting them alphabetically and most recent but I can only get twenty five in the list and then there is no option (that I can see) to go to next batch. I tried asking this question through the help feature on the SDL but no one answered.

This is a problem. I've looked backed through Ask the Librarian (the thread for SDL queries) and Beecharmer suggested this:

Yes, this is a problem; I know I've pointed it out before. Only the first 25 alphabetical or the 25 most recent drabbles can be accessed via the author list. The best way to get a full list of a prolific SDL author's drabbles at this time is to do a search for the author's Penname. (Be sure to choose Penname from the "Simple Search" drop-down menu!) At the bottom of that list, you can click to Page 2 for drabbles 26-50.

It's a good thing only a handful of us are that prolific! But thanks, JB, that's really helpful :)
