[SIZE="4"]So here's how it's going to look:
You'll access this by clicking the merchant name beneath each deal.[/SIZE]

You can see here the member with the highest post count for that specific merchant. The temperature relates to the amount of positive or negative reviews. The more positive reviews a merchant receives, the higher the temperature will go, much the same as in our deal voting system

[SIZE="4"]You'll have noticed the little review box top right. Of course, members still need to start adding their own personal experiences with each merchant.[/SIZE]

[SIZE="4"]By expanding the reviews box above, you'll be taken to the review page[/SIZE]

Again, once other members submit their own reviews, this page will be pretty useful.

By expanding the deals box to the right, you'll go back to the deals page for that merchant, and the same goes for the vouchers profile.

best bit is the VOUCHERS part imo

that looks brilliant - and yes the vouchers part will be really helpful too

Well it's live now! Just click the merchant name beneath each deal if you want to try it out.

Should go without saying aswell, any abuse of the review system won't be tolerated. That includes spamming, self promotion, swearing.. the usual

Where is the text only view ?, changes are all ok but if just looking in quickly there is just to much info on the page , for a very few deals , and with a slow connection takes ages to look through a few pages .
sorry guys put this in the wrong thread , doh !

I like it, it's useful especially the voucher section but there should be a text view option, it would look far neater and prevent you having to go through pages of recent deals to see the one you want

lol, good luck with that JB, I can imagine what it's going to be like for some poorly thought of merchants :w00t:

Well we can take a look at that, however standard merchant search (using the merchant search box top left) will still bring up the usual results which can then be put into the view you prefer. (Including expired etc, text only)

ER.....where did all the pictures go? Clearly, they need to be put back in or show me how to get them back.

Yeah I'd already noticed that and to be honest I'll probably still use that way the most ATM :thumbsup:

They are still there for me :?

Thanks for the screen shots JB and the "walkthrough" explanation - very helpful :thumbsup:

Oh, and the PRICE is now missing from the rgiht side of the deal box. Picture + Price are quite important, I don't want to have to read every listing to find out what exactly is on offer and how much it costs.

Voucher thing is okay though, although I've never found a voucher worth using.

Are they!?! They aren't in the above screenshots, and they aren't when I click on Amazon deals or Play etc. So where are the pictures now then?

Oh sorry I though you meant the screenshots in JB posts above not the pics in the merchant deals :oops:

HedgeHoggy, you can still view deals by specific merchants by searching using the usual merchant search box, as mentioned.

This is more a summary of deals/vouchers but the primary focus is the reviews

We will pass all comments on to the developer team though as there are still a few things to be tweaked / altered

Thanks, the problem I have is I have a bookmark which takes me to the latest amazon deals, and that is showing the new page (as is my Play bookmark etc.) To do it 'manuallly' takes about 10 seconds......in fact I gave up after 10 seconds as the 'advanced search' was making my brain hurt. I assume that eventually the pages will look like they used to, with pictures/price clearly visible. Or I might cry.

=1&advanced_search=Search+Now"]Try this, it's Amazon deals with results sorted by thread start date

Same for Play.com=1&advanced_search=Search+Now"]here

YAY! (as a small child might say) we're back in business. Thanks for that, added them as bookmarks now.

Have some repness....

To be fair there are several things that aren't apparently tolerated here but it still happens frequently and is too out of control now to handle and i can see this being abused and resource heavy to keep running properly.............but if people respect it then it will be a good feature. Time will tell.

I tried adding a review but it didn't work.

Also there is a picture next to "Add Review" which is missing. (Red X)

Also, adding heat to deals from the merchant page doesn't actually add any heat for me.

What will happen when a merchant doesn't honour a popular misprice and then the merchant gets loads of negative reviews making them look (unfairly) really bad.

It would be unfair on the merchant as they usually don't have to honour misprices and the poor reviews could put people off buying a ggod deal off of them in the future.

Who were you adding for?

I think its excellent, really helpful and appears straight forward, thanks:thumbsup:

Seems unnecessary & makes searching for a list of most recent posts for a particular merchant more complicated if we have to go into advanced search instead of clicking on "xxxxxx Deals".

Thumbs down from me - you should really get some user feedback BEFORE making these pointless changes instead of after.

I miss being able to do that. I think that's far more useful to have as a clicky on the deal than a review. In most cases people wouldn't look at reviews anyway if it's that good a deal as greed becomes the driving factor.

So i'm in agreement unless it's fixed.

UPDATE - Just noticed that if you click on review you can still expand all deals from that retailer so i'm happy.

I tried expanding GMTV deals, looking for a list of all the gmtv competitions (which you used to get by clicking the 'GMTV deals' link & I get 2 results, none of which are comps & 1 is expired - what a load of crap this new feature is.
