I just realized that we could mark RWP items in our transaction archive as resoved/not resolved.  How awesome is that?!?  I went all the back to when I first joined.....2 years ago!....and marked all of mine.  It's funny, I didn't have as many RWP as I thought.  It felt good to update people's accounts who had made good on sending bad books (and also to record the ones who didn't).  All the pm histories were there for me to look at if I couldn't remember specifically what the problem was or how the person responded.  It's definitley one of my new favorite features.

What's your recent favorite?

I'm still tickled about the "footprints"!  Just figured that one out a couple days ago!  This site is pretty cool!!!!!

I love that when I look at a book description, the system will tell me if it's on my WL or RL or bookshelf.

the system tags for WL, RL, etc are my favorite too.  *so* much easier than having to go look up whether i already put it on my list.

My vote for most useful feature is the WL/RL/Bookshelf note on book description.  Footprints are interesting, but not many of my books have traveled much, I guess they tend to be keepers...

But for pure fun, I like the Delivery Confirmation truck.  So amusing to watch (and listen to) it!

I'm new here so pardon what may seem like a silly question, but what do the footprints mean?

I'm new too, but this is one thing I think I actually know! :-)  The little footprint next to a book on someone's shelf indicates whether it's been swapped before (and where it's traveled).
