I enjoy digging around in the Book Suggestions board among the older suggestions, and have noticed that there are some that have since been done and entered into the catalog. Sometimes these are later annotated to show that it's been done, and sometimes not. If I come across one that has not, is there someone I should notify, or just leave a comment on the post itself?

I'd say, leave a comment in the thread itself.

Eventually ones that are annotated get removed. There's no set schedule for this; it happens when an admin has time and inclination to go through and annotate/delete threads. :)

For the record, I did a Book Suggestions search for the word "adopted" and only came up with 1 or 2 threads to remove. Most instances of the word were in threads with more than one book suggestion, and only one of the suggestions was taken up, so the thread remains.

Okay, thanks!

I didn't realize threads are removed. I didn't want to just willy-nilly add comments because it would take all the oldest ones and put them at the top of the pile again. But if they are ultimately removed that's not such a problem. And when I come across ones that have been recorded, I'll use the word adopted to make the search easier.

Most threads aren't ever removed , but Listeners Wanted and Book suggestions are , so that it's easier to find up to date ones.
Your idea is a good one :D

Hope I wasn't too spammy with it all yesterday. I started with the oldest and went through 2 pages. Found a few that had been done, and updated/added text links on some of the others. Hopefully it will stir up some interest in a couple of them!

I'll probably do a page at a time here and there, if that's cool with everyone.

I especially think that supplying current text links is good. :)
