Contact Form Fixed

News & Updates By April 8, 2009 Last Updated on April 8, 2009 by Abigail White No Comments

I should have taken a hint when I noticed that I wasn’t getting some other emails, but something was broken on the server that prevented me from receiving emails generated from the site.
That has been fixed now, but I don’t have any way of retrieving those messages that have been submitted during the past month or so. My apologies to anybody whose message was lost.

Cell Phone Recommendations

News & Updates By March 17, 2009 Last Updated on September 23, 2021 by The BookScouter Team 3 Comments

I had somebody email me the other day about a cell phone recommendation, and I’m not sure how to reply. If anybody has a recommendation for which cell phone might work best for use while buying books, please comment.

“I am in the market for a new cell phone and would like one that would allow me to scan book isbn #’s. I shop at a lot of thrift stores and garage sales and believe some type of bar code scanner would be very helpful. Could you tell me what I need to look for in a phone?”

Which Vendors Buy The Most Titles

News & Updates By March 5, 2009 Last Updated on November 24, 2010 by Olivia Smith 3 Comments

I had a user ask me if I had any statistics that showed which of the merchants had offers on books the most frequently. This site records enough data to provide some interesting reports like that, so I took a little while to come up with it.
This graph shows the relative number of times that a vendor had a price for a title. The data goes back to the first of the year, so some of the vendors that were added since then show up lower than they normally would.

A Bunch of Vendor Feedback Approved

Tonight I noticed that I wasn’t receiving notifications about user feedback that was submitted for some reason. It has just been broken for a couple weeks, and I had nearly 30 items waiting to be approved. I’m glad that people are taking advantage of this. You can really get a sense of which companies have problems by reading through some of the messages.
