Improving Book Giveaway thread titles...

Is it just me that finds the Book Giveaway section really hard to navigate?

I only visit this section occasionally, but then find myself clicking on giveaways which have closed ages ago, but are at the top of the list because MNers are now posting reviews.

I wondered if it would be possible to include the giveaway closing date in the title, and also perhaps the deadline for reviews if there is a competition for that too.

So something like this:

Book Giveaway: A Random Book by Iman Author - Closes 4/4/16 Reviews by 31/5/16

Do I need to send this request to MN?

Hi SuperMumNot,

Since your comments, we have edited the giveaway discussion titles to include the closing date of the feedback. Hope that makes it more clear! Thanks!

Er, it's still not that clear, Tbh. As the feedback date us do far after the closing date, it's still hard to spot any 'live' giveaways.

Is there any mileage in something like Still Open ?

Also not clear is my awful typing! blush

It was meant to read: As the feedback date is so far after. ..

So glad someone else has this problem.
I find it hard to work out which books I can still 'apply' for.
It's a bit sad when I get lured in and interested, only to find it's gone.

Yes , i find the same but on the plus side it often encourages me to get the books from the library or buy them if I can!
