I guess that could work. Another selection when entering a deal. To be honest I'd re-word the 'Availability' drop down so it was "Instore" instead of "Offline", and then if "Instore" is selected, another drop-down appears asking for the region.

I dont think the region thing would work. Instead of people wasting their time searching like before, you would get people moaning that it was put in a region only thread, when it turned out that it was also available elsewhere.

Would just be more mod work getting the same deal pushed out to other regions IMO.

everythings cheaper up north anyway

Well then the alternative (which personally I think would be better) is to make the site online deals ONLY.

if we had some regions sorted then they could be selected by the user but inserted into the tag field automatically by HUKD, then people would be able to RSS their regions with very little work required from Admin.

ive had some great offline deals so i wouldnt want this!

The region idea would be handy for us northern ireland folk, as we're excluded by quite a lot of companies

Yes that is the easiest way to do it probably...

Some intersting thoughts there people, thanks for replying.
I'm going to post the deal i found on the buy 1 get 1 free games and see what type of responses i get.
I have to agree with Gary-Ripp that i wouldn't want instore deals to removed, as i've found a good percentage of deals instore only - take the ps2 at £49 deals, and the 49p/97p games.

Put the region in as a tag saintscouple and note that you did so in your post (so that others get the hint)

This is something I've wondered about in the past, some great regional deals crop up from time to time and I've seen a lot of people vote cold just because it is unavaliable to them. It would certainlly be useful to be able to search offline deals by region (not that many are likely to be any good for me in the deepest, darkest depths of Wales ;-) )
