Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: CAN NO ONE HELP ME!

Perhaps if you told us what you were looking for, we might be able to help you. And maybe if you wrote your request pleasantly instead of ranting and raving, we might want to help you.

Re: CAN NO ONE HELP ME!

now sir, if u look again, again will you see what i am looking for. the "ranting and raving" came after days of frustration added to 2 YEARS of frustration looking for these books. if you have a helpful suggestion for me i would appreciate it, if not than our conversation is done.

In that case, you should have posted it in those threads. I have no way of knowing which messages you're ranting about, because the message threads move around as other people post things. New threads are for new topics.

 

Please remember: we are just forum members like you. We're not librarians, or research specialists, or anything. Nobody is paying us to help you. You're asking us to help you out of the goodness of our hearts, if we happen to know the information. Yelling at us when we don't happen to know the information isn't going to help any. You say you've spent two years trying to find those books, but then you give us three days to find the answer for you, and give us a ration of $#!+ when we don't?

Re: CAN NO ONE HELP ME!

I see that you found your book :smileyhappy: , and that is great.

I think Doug_Pardee's concern was that you started four separate threads about the same book, with one in all caps(yelling) for people to help. 

Just saying, kindness goes a long way. I understand the frustration of looking for info.

Re: CAN NO ONE HELP ME!

my intention wasnt 2 yell at any1, just showng my exasperation. he was slightly rude in his reply 2 my post. i didnt insult or demand anything of any1, but apparently i brought across the wrong message. half nuts with trying 2 find the book yes, mad at any1 because they couldnt help? never. help's always appreciated but if some1 cant help i do understand seeing as how i dont know most of the books people post here about myself. wasnt trying 2 show anger about any1 not helping, only frustration at my inability 2 find help.
