My interpretation would be a thread where someone collates items from several different sources and makes a commitment to keeping it up to date. This lets people compare similar offerings from different places at a glance.

Another definition*:
A topic/thread on an internet chat board/forum that receives an excessively high quantity of responses, regardless of adhering to the subject matter, or the usefulness to anybody else.

* This is an official response (in advance).

Think it's all to do with getting the red deal badge.

Yeah, what you said at the start.

Yup, they should be in misc... People find deals, then someone collates them and puts them in one thread to get HEAT!

Thanks. I clicked [POST COMMENT] & ELVIS' may have been editing the thread description (or somebody else was moving the thread to the "Ask" Forum) at the same time, so the submission just 'hung'.

When I refreshed the page, my comment was not there so I posted it again.

Then, as you said, if there was a "double post" then both were removed (in error).

E peen lengtheners is what they are.

Even when a deal is over or the thread is redundant, the op keeps bumping and adding unnecessarily.

It's basically people posting stuff that is nowhere near good enough to have it's own post.
9/10 it's filled with a load of rubbish but gets voted just for the effort.

"he has signed a mega deal to make five movies"

I think you're supposed to put in tons of work, with a lot of good will and hope people will like it. But it needs to be an extraordinary amount of work, otherwise it's just a thread.

This was my best effort:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/lg-g2-owners-accessory-megathread-2070111

It got misc'ed though. It wasn't considered good enough and probably too niche for deals. Which is fine, just using it as an example of effort. Probably not complicated enough. Unlike the SIM only deals, or booze megathread, which are truly epic.

Perhaps you shouldn't be able to call your own thread a megathread, perhaps it should be down to the reader to tag it so?

Well I didn't expect you to remember it, the others examples I gave are famous threads IMO.

Guessing you're too far gone to find the others I was comparing to, so here you go:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hukd-sim-only-thread-cheapest-sim-only-deals-free-sim-offers-2481975

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/mega-thread-list-supermarket-deals-for-alcohol-vodka-rum-whisky-others-2016-1702213

Much higher effort.

Is the OP beered up as usual?

He asks for an example of a megathread so MSK obliges. He then proceeds to ask her why she pasted her thread oO

Welcome back indeed Pelvis. You've been missed my son
