I haven't spent much time in here lately, and I must say it is looking kind of.....well....messy.

Can we all go back and completely remove our fulfilled (sent and received) replies by completely sweeping and mopping them clean? (No strike-throughs) This would mainly apply to the monthly topic threads.

And when the individual deal threads are done, can we please edit the titles to depict that?

It sure would make it easier for folks like me who want to come in here and spend a LOT of credits.

I agree, once a deal is over with it'd be nice to get the thread deleted so it's not as confusing.

Even if the original poster would just come back and put "Completed" "Over" Done" Dead  or something along those lines would be extremely helpful. I have sent a few PMs only to find out the books were long gone. Kind of frustrating.

Is there a way to mark that you've already looked at a thread?  I don't want to miss good deals, but I find myself looking at the same bookshelves again and again when they get bumped up.  There's too many thread titles and members to remember.

I agree, it would be nice to have the option for the original poster to be able to delete the thread.  It would take up less space on the PBS servers and would be much less confusing (we're up to nearly 900 pages of BB posts).  I would also love to see a way to show us which threads we have and have not viewed, like Danyun, I find myself looking at bookshelves I have already seen before. 

I try to mark all of my deals as "done" or "finished" and delete the text of the post, that way I don't get PMs about books I don't have any more.
