It will still show in All. So the question is would anyone specifically want to browse a solo topic of Other deals?

If you call it Other then I very much doubt it. Misc or General slightly better. The reason I pointed this out was a deal I posted for Wooden Toy Sets in Gaming was moved to Other. A lot of people only browse by Topic so will not see Other. This is an obvious problem since the removal of the General Topic.

Yes please

have a read here, an almighty mess when they changed the categories. Just be thankful that they realised what a mess they made of it and included home catgerory again. (although I suppose pride, pig headedness or poor developers would be the reason for not including the other tab now)

Well we managed to get the Home Topic back eventually, perhaps they'll see sense again.

Well statistically when we had General Deals it comprised 0.1% of the pages loaded. That's a tenth of a percentage point. Nonsense was 0.04%. That's less than half of a percentage point.

That's besides the point. If you are not having an "Other" section on the navigation toolbar then remove the category option when posting deals, etc. You can't have one but not the other, otherwise things disappear into oblivion or are only viewable via the "All".

So adding "Other" to the navigation is the best solution IMO, but removing "Other" from the submit page is equally as logical (although more likely to cause confusion/wrongly categorised posts).

Well said. Though it's a shame it needs to be said!

I never look at All as there are plenty of things that don't interest me. I must miss loads of deals as I would look in Other.
