There should be a sub forum for wanted stuff. It gets really crazy in there with deals, wants & credits for sale. I think it would be easier to have it seperated.

Or a sub forum simply for the deals and pimping your shelf threads. Leave the bizaar for unpostables, ARCs, and different isbn wish listers.

Actually the BB started as a way to just highlight member's shelves. Or have a comparison of what books one member had posted vs. another in the same genre or category. Like "I have four books on my shelf with the word 'Blue' in the title". I am not sure when the deals started, but they pretty much took over the BB. That is when they made the Sticky topics, so at least Damaged Books and the Tour thread would be easier to find. Then we got the cute little tent, and Bernie, who had done so much work in there got her title.

I know there have been deals in there ever since I joined. I promise I didn't start it.

And I would like to say that I would just be interested in any "sub-forum".

That almost sounds illicit.

It would probably be illicit after you and I arrived, Dartha! But, I won't tell, if you don't then they will discover it way to late and already have them created and we will have made them illicit, and worse chaos will break out than is already abundant. Oh, what havoc we could reek, if only...    :)
