I have had a few pms of folks who would like to see all the "Credits for Sale" in one thread. What does everyone think of that? A monthly thread, kinda like the ARC or Wishlist books with Different ISBN thread.  That way they are all in one spot?

As time goes on I will toss out questions like this. I get alot of neat pms from you members and want to do what I can to make your Bazaar a place that folks flock to again.

Absolutely! It would keep things organized and easy to find.

One post for all credits for sale would be easier to look at and less bumps taking up space...Love

Sounds good, but would people really want to do it? They would maybe feel they'd always have to go cheaper than the other person to get rid of the credits. Good for the people buying though I guess.

There is a thread similar but I think it's just one big continuation, not by month. Isn't this it? http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=107927&l=25&ls=0

I think it would be a great idea to do a credits for sale thread every month.

I think it's a great idea too.  Though prices might vary, so would # of credits available in a block and also payment methods.

And does anyone know if progress is being made into splitting the Bazaar into "Looking for..." and "Offering..."?

I think it'd make for some very competitive posting.  I'm not sure that's a good thing for the seller but certainly would be good for the buyer.  Personally - I dislike having to go to a thread like that and try to figure out who is still selling and who isn't.  IF it's like the other continuing threads, most people don't come back and delete what is gone.

Sounds like a great idea to me, it would allow folks to find what they need faster.

CF brings up a good point.  I've only sold credits a couple of times.  I think I would feel a bit intimidating if the post before me is offering them cheaper than I want to go.

Cindy, at this point there is no way to split up the types of offers or looking for threads.

You guys have a good point about if someone offers a deal at a lower price than you.  Perhaps next week I will se up a vote.

Sounds good but we can't keep the deal posts out of the individual forums..people seem to post wherver they want.

Reading all of the post in a continuing thread to me is a little confusing.  There are those who have sold all of there credits already and not deleted their posts.  There are those who say "Thank you" or "I'll buy them" and taking up space that you have to scroll down.  There are not really that many people in the Bazaar selling credits.  I don't think I would visit it that often in a continuing thread.

BeckyP is right...I really wish this site could pick up where you left off.  On a different site, if I go to a thread to read it, the next time I go to that thread, it takes me right to where I left off last time.  I hate how you always have to start from the beginning of every thread and scroll through all the old replies to get to the newest ones.  I also wish there was a way to mark a thread as "read".  Half the time I can't remember which deal I already looked at and end up browsing shelves that I've already seen!

I think it's a great idea for streamlining this forum.
