Deal postings are actually slightly up.. weekly average of 148.5 deals posted in the last week excepting launch day as compared to 144/day the week before.

;-)But being realistic it is christmas and more people shop then so it should be up but you would expect it to be more than this !! dont think people like the new lay out i personnally dont like it !

wait till "edi" gets back .......deals will soar Again!!!!!

Actually online shopping peaks around the 10th mstiny. After that it goes down - already a lot of shops have passed the last guaranteed shipping date. So to have more posts than the previous week which is the peak means we are stronger than usual.

Just saying....

I would imagine this has a lot to do with the fact that many places have had pre-christmas sales, or have slod off their Christmas items before Christmas, instead of afterwards. I am guessing this trend will continue next year as well.

Good news for bargain hunters. :thumbsup::santa:

The number od Deals posted isn't the same thing as the number of people posting though. It would be interesting to know what those figures are, although I am guessing you will have to wait until the new year to get a more accurate picture because any changes could be put down to changes in people's surfing habits due to Christmas, etc.

I'll see if I can get that number. I would actually suspect we have seen a drop in some of the misc postings but that we've maintained it elsewhere... comments/feedback forum would have spiked.

It's a bad time of year for meaningful metrics due to xmas. Look at the alexa graph for last year for example where there is a massive slide. As you say the real proof in the pudding will be January.

HAHAHAHA!!! :-D I would imagine that compared to the normal, the spike for the feedback forum will be of Mt. Everest proportions. :p:whistling:

Has there been an increase of banned members aswell?

196 the week prior... 4128 the week since

Id wait until the seasonal period ends and people get back to normal activities before saying whether or not postings increased or not. At this time of year its expected to increase and with more and more people becomming internet savvy and looking for deals, its only gonna increase.

Just out of curiosity what were the averages for this time last year?

I generally like the new layout and ease of use, but I dont like the colour scheme with the horid green at the top. Other than that great stuff.

oh really :roll:

Admin will have a better view on this when he gets his bank statment!:p

Jut seems like all you get in the sale forum is New Nintendo Wii's dont you reckon?

I think its most noticeable in the misc forum, several long standing members have been banned.....but its such an odd time of year theres probably more than one reason.

Who's been banned?

Ultimo, Bitseylingo, Fireheaven. Andy, Chezza...

Dino has a defacto ban - it doesn't say he's banned but he can't post anymore....

Banned

the "regulars" posting on the forums etc have gone down but most people who use the site dont use them and so aren't as tetchy about the issues that people have brought up

Why have they all been banned? I remember about Dino, but Ultimo was here just the other day?

i think maybe the misc postings have gone because a lot of members have spit the dummy cos they cant get their own way.....

and im assuming the members banned were breaking the rules...ie.. PMing members advertising their site which was reported, as i saw somewhere, tho not certain....
