Should the audiobook deals be moved to this forum?

Will the 'What do we listen on', 'What are we listening to' and 'audiobook deals' threads be moving down to here too, so that it's all in one place?

The only one of those threads you mentioned that hasn't been moved here and most likely won't be is the "Current Audiobook Specials" thread. It's probably best to keep all of the various deal threads as stickies in the Deals forum, but nothing's written in stone.

So ... that makes this forum "Everything Audiobooks Except Deals"?

The thread really should be moved here, I think; couldn't a permanent link to a thread here be left as a sticky back there? It would be more convenient and then this area really would be "Everything Audiobooks"!

What do the rest of you think? It would help a little to alleviate the crowding in the "Deals, Freebies, and Resources (No Self-Promotion)" sub-forum.

I lean toward moving it here, but I can go either way.

Yay! Now the audiobook specials thread can be just audiobook specials!

(It has been such a pain to recall a discussion and then to have to wade through the specials thread to find it again. Now -- maybe -- I'll just have to recall the thread title.)

Thanks!

I vote for moving the Specials thread here as well, with a x-ref to the Deals discussion.

I'm going to go entirely against the popular opinion and vote for keeping the deals thread in the deals forum. Everything else can go here.

I don't mind if the deals thread stays where it is as I'm always in the deals forum anyway. I was more after the 'What are we listening too' thread to be moved which it has now so I'm a happy little vegemite

My gut feeling is that staying in the Deals forum is better for the audiobooks deals. As a sticky, it will still be easy to find, and its presence there might spur some people to try an audiobook who normally wouldn't even consider them, and that could lead to increased participation in this forum.

Keep the deals where they are - just as they don't get scattered thru the various ereader forums.

Much easier to check one forum only, when scanning for deals, rather than sorting thru each one to find what's posted (especially when pressed for time).

If we go this route, I'd suggest a sticky in this forum with the exact thread title/link (Current Audiobook Specials). That way, folks can access the thread directly from here.

Is there anyway that a linked thread here can mimic the actual thread with the "Last Post" info and "Go to first new post" arrow?

I don't know, but I'll check into the possibility.

Obviously, deals on audiobooks belong in the audiobooks forum not the deals forum. In fact, I would go so far as to say that deals on ebooks belong in their respective ebooks forums. So why do we need a deals forum anyway?
