Anyone else think that forums that haven't had ANY conversation for months should be removed so we don't have to do through such a long list to reach the active ones?

I only look at 3 forums regularly so I don't really care one way or the other.

I only check about 4 or 5 forums,so it does not matter either way. But want I would really like to see is a forum just for credits sell / or buy.

It takes so much up of the book bazaar.

I'd be pro a split Bazaar (for all books, deals, etc) and Market (for credits).

Several years ago I suggested they split the Book Bazaar so that people wanting credits had a place to go and those who wanted book deals had a different place to go, but nothing ever happened. I hate wading through the wanting to sell/buy credits to try to find whether someone might want a deal on books I have.  Pat

I used to frequent the Jewish forum regularly. At one point, one of the most active members there passed away, and the forum when dormant for a while. Then recently someone posted in it again, and I got some great titles for my RL/TBR list. So I'm really glad they didn't retire that forum.

I think many forums are quiet now because so many people left when the fees started... and a la cartes can't post on the forums.

I think you are absolutely correct, Charles.

As to Jeanne's question, I only visit 2 or 3 regularly so I don't mind. But I do miss more active forums!
