I don't think it affect the amount of deals that are fitted onto a page iglimpse, I believe this is a set number, regardless of the mength of each deal. (Correct me if I'm wrong admin)

But I understand what you mean. When someone posts a huge list, I usually try and shrink it into a paragraph, as it looks quite bad when viewed from the front page.

But it is useful to have some of the spec in there, as I think it encourages click-throughs if you see something that catches your eye.

Yeah I agree also that it can be a lot to slog through sometimes. Maybe we should have a summary and a spec box? That way only the summary would be shown on the front page and specs if you expanded it or something?

That's a good idea Paul. Would that be for all deal submitted then? The front page would look a lot tidier, and would be easier to browse down through a lot of deals.

This has been suggested before Admin when you asked for suggestions for improving the site...I totally agree that a deal summary is a necessary requirement.

Should we have a spec box also or just say please give a summary and not detailed specs (members can click through to the site to read all that).

Personally I think that way would be better than no specs at all.
For me it's most beneficial on computer/technology/electrical items to have a spec handy.

Well I'm in the more to a page the better preference..but appreciate some want specs..I can do without and will click through if I fancy a deal.

One point though, on some deals you don't get much in the way of specs/info from the site selling the item, and people may post additional info from other sites/manufactuers site, so having space in some way for additional info can be useful.

The expanding box idea sounds good though.

I personally think for the first post ( that would be shown front page) a brief description is good, then in the next post follow up with a more detailed description / spec if needed
