Trade Block Section CLEAN-up?

Post by Winnipeg59 » Sat 22 Mar '14 2:19pm

Certainly not an earth-shattering suggestion but would there be any interest in cleaning out the Trade Block section?

I suggest maintaining the "Trades" section because it's always interesting to look back on deals made, but the Trade Block has many, many pages and posts dating back to the first days of the CBL it seems. It might be easier to navigate and much more current and/or timely if we cleared it completely once a season and then allowed teams to post and maintain a "team" thread within the section to cite needs and players available in one place per team, then just wipe them out on the chosen date to keep it clean.

Easy clean-up for the Commish too? Or, in fact, teams could do this themselves?

Day after Trade Deadline or Opening Day (after all the off-season moves) would be my two suggestions?

it wouldnt hurt. Also, asking teams to keep a solo trade block they keep updating an erasing is a good option.

I like the status quo. Don't see much value in this particular change - and also don't mind the older posts.

Just to clarify I am only suggesting cleaning out the "Trade Block" section, not the "Trades" (as in completed trades) section. We should maintain that record of all the trades that have gone down in the life of the CBL. I just think it might be easier to navigate the blocks if that section was clean and current.

Just a suggestion. The status quo works too. :thumbup:
