Hi everyone. Time to post some suggestions for how a new promo could work, because there's lots of 'not very good' offers being posted because people are in a rush to claim these. A better system may be required.
Here's something I wrote in the HotDeals section:
The supermarket offers are getting a little annoying now. Maybe we should have a separate forum for them, or even different categories of forums under 'HotDeals'.
At the moment, regarding the promo, it's the best we can do. Everyone wants the USB Disks, and so there's bound to be some stupid deals. I think that a better system would be to allow members to rate each deal. 2 weeks after a deal has been posted, the ratings are averaged and a score is given for that post. Once a member has a certain number of points built-up, they can request a freebie. This would be quite complicated though as someone would need to write a code for this for the website. However, it would also avoid the problem of lots of posts during promo time, and less at other times.
Has anybody else got any comments or ideas?
