Few simple things that could improve it greatly:
1. Can you make the deal title (next to the heat rating) a clickable link to the relevant HUKD thread?
It'd be useful for when the embedded merchant webpage fails to load (which seems to happen about 30% of the time currently, leaving us with no detail on the item at all).
Plus i usually read the HUKD thread discussion before purchasing something anyway, so it'd be very handy.
2. Could you make automatic loading of the embedded webpage optional (include a tickbox?)
3. Could you give us the option of getting 10 or more gift suggestions at once? It's rather tedious having to continually click "next" :(
4. Any chance of allowing us to select the price range?
Thanks for any/all of these suggestions you're able to implement.
Other than these gripes, great idea that has the potential to be very helpful.
If this is refined a little more i could see this becoming a permenant feature of the site that's useful all year round for birthday/wedding/etc. gifts
p.s. i would have added this to the other thread about the gift finder, but it seems all the posts in that thread are dedicated solely to the colour scheme, so discussion of the actual interface would probably be lost :(
p.p.s. also, any chance we could get bold, italic, and underline BBcode enabled in OPs? would make it so much easier to lay out a deal if they were allowed (i understand why not all BBcode is allowed) cheers
