This raises an interesting point, and I've been in a similar position when trying to find a category.

I realise you will never suit everyone, however, I think the categories should be checked and setup again, based on feedback etc, and also include some guidelines as to what each category should include.

Put simply:

* More categories
* Better defined
* Choose upto 3 per item

Bump!

I'm happy to re-adjust categories if they are necessary. I don't think more is a good idea though. Basically best way to think of it is which areas have the most deals that need to be split off rather than how many potential deal types are there.

Personally I think we need a topic for Gaming/Games Console deals

I think that the "Nonsense" tab should probably be renamed to "Other". The "Home" tab also doubles for garden things, so adding that to the name ("Home & Garden") might be appropriate.

Also, the "Finance" tab is fairly quiet, with just 7 deal posts in the last week...

Over the last 24 hours, here are the number of deals posted in each category:

Entertainment - 47 deals
Computing - 24 deals
General Deals - 19 deals
Kids - 15 deals
Mobiles - 12 deals
Electricals - 12 deals
Home - 12 deals
Groceries - 11 deals
Clothing - 5 deals
Travel - 5 deals
Finance - 2 deals

Admin.... I'd only want more categories, if we could select multiples. I was thinking along the lines of blog categories. A post could cover multiple subjects, so you can tick box say 3 different ones.

I also agree with what others have said regarding 'nonsense' and the less used categories.

]That's what "tags" are for. I tag all of my deals in this way (take a look). Although, a few "popular tags" for people to choose from (as well as adding their own) would be a nice idea, and would hopefully encourage people to use them more...

I think there should be a Seasonal category. I have suggested this before, and I think it was considered a good idea at the time.

Just helps with things like Valentines Roses, Easter Eggs, Christmas Trees etc...

I agree, and I try to do the same, but no one else bothers, so its a bit pointless?
