Am I the only one who thinks all these selling of credits should be posted somewhere else & not on the Book Bazaar?

It would be nice if there was a seperate thread - its a "book" bazaar not a credit bazaar

You are not the only one who thinks that and I agree there should be a separate thread.

I agree. Some one should start another thread

It would almost have to be a red sticky thread at the beginning of the Book Bazaar. There used to be a thread for selling credits, at least back in 2010.  I don't think it was real successful though as people would still independently post their credits for sale in individual threads.

I can only hope that PBS will decide to do that!

For the first 10 days of every month 50% of all the posts on the Bazaar seem to be for credits not books.

People who do want to post a deal for books get lost on the second page in no time.

Well, the site REQUIRES that people only sell in the Book Bazaar they can't really go do it elsewhere.

Requiring people to sell in one thread is like requiring people to offer their book deals in one thread. You don't really want you offer lumped in with other better offers right? There was a thread that people posted in for a while, but after the 50 credit limit went into effect, that seemed to fall by the wayside.

I vote for a red sticky for credit selling.

I know I'd be happy if there was a red sticky thread for all the credits being sold.  The only thing is, would PBS police the Book Bazaar to make sure those posts ended up there? 

I know that in the' Discussion forums by Genre,'  you are only supposed to post deals in the red sticky thread, but members are always posting in the main body and no one ever does anything about it.  I just went to the first 3 forums and every one has at least one post within the first 5 threads offering a deal  in the main body.  Although the subject line mght not sound like a "deal" subject, when you read the post, it is. 

A bit frustraing for those of us that follow the rules.

Nope , your not the only one.  I think there should be a space just for that.

I come here looking for deals and sometime it seems they have more credit deals then booksdeals.

Counting down from this post i count 8 book deal offers before seeing any credit sellers.  Doesn't seem like a big problem to me.
