I'm sure I'm not the only person who visits the forum regularly and gets a little fed up with wading through loads and loads of threads. It's also very frustrating when the same deal is posted a number of times, mainly due to people not having the time to wade through pages and pages of other threads to see if it has already been posted.
I may have a solution.
Why don't you add some more catagorys under Hot deals. You could keep it simple and have say MOBILE PHONE DEALS, COMPUTER DEALS, DVD DEALS, CONSOLE DEALS, HOME DEALS, HOLIDAY DEALS, and various sub catagorys like these.
I just feel that many good deals are getting lost because they are dissaperaing on page 2 or 3 of the forum within a matter of hours. Surely it would be better to have thngs in catagories and also people would have more chance of spotting if someone else had already posted a deal if they didn't have so many pages to wade through.
Sorry if this doesn't read too well, I'm just trying to brainstorm on the go.
