This guide will explain how a request should be posted.

What do I need to post a request?
  • You have to be a member of Mobilism. Click on register on the top left-hand corner to register. You will get 50 WRZ$ to spend as soon as you register.
  • You have to offer at least 10 WRZ$ PER BOOK as a reward to the user who fulfills your request. If your request is completed you will have to donate those 10 WRZ$ PER BOOK to the user who fulfilled your request first.
  • You may obviously offer more than 10 WRZ$ if you want the eBook you are looking for badly or urgently, and you can afford it.
  • Requesting via Private Message is not allowed.

How should the topic's title look like?
  • The topics title must be in a correct format to have a clear overview what is getting requested:
    [Title of Book] by [Name of Author] [AB, if requesting audiobooks]
  • There is no need to add "Request" or "Req" as you already are at the request section.
  • If you make a mistake, please PM a moderator, requests cannot be edited. The feature was removed to prevent further misuse.

What information should I include in my request?
  • The name of the eBook and author
  • The format of the eBook you are looking for
  • All requests are for books in English unless a different language is clearly and explicitly requested.
  • Requests for books or magazines with adult content are not allowed.
  • Polls are not allowed.

What else?
  • After your request is filled, you must donate to the user that filled your request within 7 days. If you fail to donate within this period of time, the reward amount will be automatically deducted from your account and paid to the fulfiller, plus a fine of the same amount (and the risk of being banned) in case of repeated offence.
  • To donate, click the 'donate' button under the user's avatar. You also must post in the request thread saying that you did this.
  • Only the first user who posts a valid link in the request gets a reward. Do not double post download links unless the first one has been rejected.
  • You may withdraw your request by posting that you no longer need the book, provided a link has not been offered yet. If a working link has already been posted, whether to a file host or to a new release, you are most definitely obliged to donate. (Once a request has been withdrawn, you are not allowed to request the same book again for two weeks.)
  • Your request will be deleted if there has not been a reply within 14 days of the last post.
  • Your request will be deleted if you ask for more books than you can afford with the WRZ$ you have in your account. Keep the 10 WRZ$ per book rule in mind when requesting series of books.
  • You are allowed to bump your request 2 times. Choose the time wisely...
    • A bump is ANY post in a thread. This includes increases in rewards.
    • Exception: a post to reject the wrong file does not count as bump.
  • The file offered to fulfill a request must match the specifications in the opening post.
  • Bumping somebody else's request commits you to donate a reward of at least the minimum amount - 10 WRZ$. A larger amount can be offered, if you so desire.
    • Only bump if you agree with the specifications in the opening post, otherwise you must post your own request.
    • You can withdraw your bump at anytime, as long as a link has not been provided yet.
  • One book per request: No multiple-book requests allowed. Please make a separate request for EACH book. (Exception - see Series Requests below).
  • Series Requests: Series requests can only be made if you have enough WRZ$ to pay the minimum reward of 10 WRZ$ PER BOOK. For series with large number of books please split the series into several requests with no more than 5 books each.
    • When requesting several books in a series, a list of the specific titles and volume number(s) that you're looking for must be included. No more than 5 titles per request.
    • "Books by" "Series by" or "Anything by" requests are not allowed.
  • Please be civil and don't spam the section with too many requests at a time. Anything over a handful of posts / bumps is not considerate, it will only annoy users who will see their requests suddenly pushed away from the front page and its much sought after visibility. We need to be polite and respectful of others.
  • Lastly, requesting books before their expected release date is not allowed. This includes requests for Advance Reader Copies (ARC) of unpublished books.

Filehosts
  • Requests for one specific host are not allowed. Not all our members have access to all filehosts due to local restrictions, but all our members should have equal opportunities to fill requests.
      Exceptions:
      • Mention of file hosts to be avoided due to the requester's own country's restrictions is allowed.
      • Mention of favourite file hosts is allowed, as long as the number is 2 or larger.
  • Note to fulfillers: uploading to temporary hosts is not allowed. Please ensure that your links will last.

Download links in requests
  • A download link in a fulfilled request is not a Release. If you don't want others to use the file you are providing for a release of their own, post it yourself before, then give the link to the release instead of a download link.
  • Private requests are not allowed. However, you have the right to request a private link sent to you via PM if you state clearly that you plan to post a release with the book. A link to the new release must be posted as soon as possible so the request can be moved to Fulfilled.
    • If your request is fulfilled by a public link, the standard rules apply.
    • In cases where both members are active posters, fulfillers take precedence over requesters.


Important: Links in requests are NOT meant to be replaced when they die. A request is a one-time deal: once filled and rewarded, the topic is moved to the Fulfilled section and locked (no further editing possible). You are not to send private messages to fulfillers asking for new links, you must request again. Thank you.

PLEASE USE THE SEARCH BEFORE REQUESTING.
IF YOU FIND DEAD LINKS, PLEASE FOLLOW THE eBOOK SECTION RULES

New Anti-poaching rule added:

Download links in requests
  • Private requests are not allowed. However, you have the right to request a private link sent to you via PM if you state clearly that you plan to post a release with the book. A link to the new release must be posted as soon as possible so the request can be moved to Fulfilled.
    • If your request is fulfilled by a public link, the standard rules apply.
    • In cases where both members are active posters, fulfillers take precedence over requesters.
