Explanations and instructions of all things Writing.Com.
The Transfer an Item tool gives you the ability to transfer one item at a time from your portfolio to another Writing.Com member. Transferring an item leaves the item completely intact. This includes any ratings, reviews, posts, entries, members, etc that may be transferred along with it. The only things that change about the item are the item's owner, access restrictions, and its location. If applicable, the item will also be removed from its current folder.
There is a fee of 1,000 Gift Points for each item transferred. Once you have completed an item transfer, it can not be undone and the gift point fee is non-refundable.
Steps To Transfer an Item
From within your portfolio, click on Tools below the Portfolio tab. Choose "Transfer an Item". Here you will be asked for the username of the member to whom you wish to send the item and the ID number of the item you wish to transfer.
To ensure there is no mischief from item transfers, all items are set to PRIVATE upon transfer and the member receiving the item will be emailed a notification about the transfer. The notification will explain that the item has been set to private and that they should change it, if they wish. Theoretically, you should only transfer items to members who are expecting them.
Note: Due to the technical complexities involved, the transfer of Portfolio Folders is not supported by the WdC system at this time.1
