Is this just for DVDs or can I offer other discs?

We're concentrating on DVDs right now, but there's no reason why any other type of disc can't be exchanged in the same way in future. We plan to add blu-ray discs and CDs as soon as we can. After that, we hope to extend the exchange service to include CD-roms, games, etc.

How should I send a disc another member chooses?

There are no prescribed rules for this, but you may find it helpful to read the guidance notes here.

If it’s free, why do I need to register?

Registration stops bots spamming. You have to supply a real email address then activate your account via a link that we'll send to it. Once you're registered, we can use the email address to let you know when DVDs are posted that you might be interested in, and for other members to contact you by. (Messages are sent through the site - you don't have to give out your email address to anyone else, if you choose not to.) You can choose which kinds of email you do or do not receive. You can opt out of all of them if you prefer.

If it’s so good, why is it free?

The more members there are, the more DVDs available to other members. So the more likely it is to find ones of interest. So to encourage as many people as possible to register and to post DVDs for exchange, you don't have to pay a penny to register or to use the facilities. Perhaps we'll start charging a small fee once there are lots of members but by then you'll have found out just how valuable your membership is and will want to continue it. And of course if, by the remotest chance, you don't want to pay to subscribe you'll be under no obligation to.
