    Ok. So what's a so called "megathread" all about.

    Bar,an attention seeking thirst.

    How is this defined.

    How can someone claim this heading in advance....

    27 Comments

    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.

    Thank you beer man

    I'm on my third cobra as we speak.

    Please don't end the thread,I'd like to hear what the others think

    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.

    Looks like was double posted fanpages and removed in error, fixed

    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.

    I think both definitions apply

    mega
    ˈmɛɡə/
    informal
    adjective
    1.
    very large; huge.
    "he has signed a mega deal to make five movies"
    2.
    excellent.
    "it will be a mega film"

    ...or should apply, to be a true mega thread.

    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:

    hotukdeals.com/mis…111

    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?

    Why did you paste your thread



    Because it's an example of a not very mega megathread.

    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:

    hotukdeals.com/dea…975

    hotukdeals.com/dea…213

    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
