Don't get me wrong, I love Bob so far! I joined box of books a few days ago & now have 12 pending transactions. Is it just me or is the setup a little confusing? I wish there were a section to show any new offers & that things weren't pending until you decided if you wanted to trade. Does that make sense? It just seems a little hard to keep track of. I've resorted to lists to keep them all straight, lol. I also wish that as soon as someone adds my books to their box that they wouldn't show up on my shelf. I know some want to keep theirs in case of a credit order, but it would be nice if we could chose. I seem to be pming people a lot, & having to tell them that a book/books are gone. Anyone else? :)

I wish there were a tab to segregate out the offers where both sides are either 'mailed' or 'completed' -- the ones you don't have to do anything about anymore!

Yes, Eloise, another tab for those that are both mailed would be great! I missed one the other day because of that. If you only do a couple BOBs a week, fine it doesn't matter, but when you start getting up into the dozen just for that week, it gets a bit messy! Either a tab, or sort them up to the top or something. Maybe a hide feature? Hide the ones you don't want to look at for a while, then when a bob comes in or you get notification on someone else recieving yours, you can unhide all, and do the marking or reading, and then rehide those marked hidden.

I like the "hide" idea. That would be great.

I also wish there was more navigation aids within the BOB tab.  At times it can be very confusing to navigate.
