For me Deal Requests needs to be scrapped, and Replaced with Wanted which fits in with FS/FT

Vouchers in voucher thread makes common sense, forum wise would end up with people placing there free code in the title and then 50 others saying it doesn't work.

Do you mean threads like "Does anyone have xyz voucher.." deal requests?

Only problem with putting them in the voucher section is they then, by default, need assigning to a merchant. Which is fine, except they all then are attached to ongoing deals, gaining exposure and, as adam said, making one offs unusable by the majority.

If it's something many of you feel strongly about then of course we'll look at options :)

^^^ could you not just click the offline option and put what you have or want in the title? They would not have to be assigned then would they?
I know there is a bit of resentment to seeing mics filling up with multiple voucher request / giveaways, it just makes more sense to me that you would find them in the voucher section and not misc.

just have one big "official" begging thread in misc. It seems to work with the orange codes.

But really it's misc. As it's not a deal voucher.

Sticky link to users offering/wanting threads could be a temp thing. But there's more pushing issues with the forum then small gripes.

Take the multiple Curry's wants and giveaways, they are vouchers wanted or up for grabs, where is the most likely place you would look or publicise these vouchers, it surely isn't in misc IMO.

Btw I am not bothered about the vouchers being in misc it just seems commom sense to me that anyone looking for vouchers would look in the voucher section and not misc.

As you said Giveaways

Member a section regarding member giveaways.

- Giveaways
- member giveaways
- giveaway/wanted

I personally don't think it's big enough to have its own section.

Common sense won't come into if you stick it in to voucher.

lol....you've totally lost me now Adam, aren't all vouchers giveaways? With personal vouchers (instead of public ones) once someone has taken up the offer of the free voucher code it just gets expired.

Not technically.

People giving away vouchers in misc are different to people applying vouchers (Open to everyone) in vouchers.

What will happen if you mix the two in will be that people will start the thread in the wrong manor, and people will get confused. I agree a sub section would be great but that's not the way the sites set out. The forums out grown it's topics.

Giveaway would include - vouchers, household stuff, charity threads, etc etc. (Doesn't have to be that title exactly just an example.)

Like VB has just started for this, would be a better option then a sub section.

Mods could move all topics requesting or offering into one thread, I think one was started this morning by GUV until it becomes the normal. Rules could be applied to it also.
