Each deal is a good deal to those who want it and vote it to the front page at a given time.

To see deals from specific merchants, the front page filters are useful to choose what you want to see, excluding known games merchants for example.

something like the supermarket deals thing


Ooooh, & then one for DVD's, one for clothing(possible sub-section for lingerie?!?!)...maybe one for travel/flights...let's have one thread each for 50 different catagories & then no one can find anything without trawling through page after page of a dedicated thread rather than taking a couple of minutes to figure out how filters work & stop whining??!?!?
That's obviously not including the fact that people don't know whether a deal is hot enough to post on it's own merits or whether it should be in a dedicated thread meaning the Mods have to review each (at present, supermarket) deal to decide if if should stay or be dumped into the generic thread?!?!?

Just thinking out loud......

No offence Charlie but I think that was a bit harsh - you started with a very good (and I agree with you) but then it just started to degenerate......

No offence taken Gari...(no reason to be offended)
The second para was just pointing out that the supermarket threads have left people unsure of where to post (Individually or on the general thread) thereby creating potentially more work for the Mods largely because of members whining about too many Supermarket deals 'cluttering up' the first page at the expense of other deals causing the implementation of these generic threads which is what the OP was suggesting!!?!?

(If any part of my post was "harsh" it was the first para - I'm not a big 'computers'/internet person but if I go onto a site I take the time to find out how it works & what it's capable of, rather than complaining about things that can be solved by filtering)

Cheers for the "Here, here" Becks....
Intenso....I think I know just the person to be left in charge of that thread..

Agree with Charles also, Yeah the post was sarcastic/harsh, But it didn't take much thinking to work out why individual threads for games and everything else wouldn't work!

"members whining" :whistling:
Personally I think getting rid of all the "buy a tin of peas and get one free" deals into a place where I dont go was the best thing that happened.

Anyway it was just a suggestion , no big deal :roll:

As comes up many times on here when chats of this nature arise, the site is called Hot Deals, not Hot Bargains and that's summat more to consider.

It's such a grey area all the various individual and collective threads. I've seen quite a few threads spawn from other's, take the recent Wii from Wilkinson's, which was based on a 15% discount. Then canny folks figured the PS3 and the DS could be got on a similar vein. They were worth posting and would probably not have been found in a Wilkinson's generic thread.

For me, as long as folk's keep to the same standards, ie, shop name, item description and price, include whether online or instore, provide good links and a picture i'd sooner see the site that way, but you cannot please everyone :-(

You think if I submit my name to the mods they would let me do it??

Anyways

I don't think bunching deals of the one nature together is a good idea UNLESS there is becomes a more accurate way of serching within each sub section. As it stands at the moment if you serched for (just say) a deal on PGR you would just be given the link to the main thread not the actual post. Sooooo If you had to trawl through 100's of posts within that thread it would be a fairly time consuming business

(did that make sense?)

That doesn't even begin to mention the mod power needed to cover it. or the effect it would have on the comunity with in the site or the impact it would have on site navigation.

At the moment its just not feasable IMO

I'd quite like to see a thread for hot deals on radiators, keep them all in one place then :thumbsup:
#13
At the end of the day... the deals are voted by the community so if the community thinks its a hot deal.. then.. well yeah..

Cant we have a Thread that all the games get posted on ?
The main hot deals forum seems to be full of deals for this game and that game for the xbox etc,
I think its getting a bit out of hand and shoving good deals off the 1st page.
cheers

Over the last few days I couldn't agree more. We need a seperate games and consoles section.
