Hot Deals threads can show a poster demonstrating an useful item they bought. In Finance people can discuss financial and investment clips. Current threads this may be applicable are the Frontline special on retirement savings, or the thread on the guy who got scammed at a carnival. Threads that now have to post external links to videos would just embed the video so users don't need to leave FW to view it.
Would be nice if you can auto-detect that I'm already subscribed to a thread and not subscribe me again. I think it happened when I had "subscribe to this topic" checked (again) while I replied to a message in a thread I was already subscribed to. I only noticed because I was getting email updates to that particular thread twice as well. Clearly a bug in your system as I can't see any benefit to being subscribed to a thread more than once.
Ok. It seems I found another bug related to the problem I posted above. After deleting one of the double subscriptions I had above, it totally unsubscribed me from a thread. You probably won't have this problem, though, if you prevent people from double subscribing in the first place.
By the way, maybe you should create a separate thread or create some other kind of facility for users to submit bugs on your site? Just another suggestion.

I'm not able to duplicate it. I subscribed to this thread, then replied to you here and the checkbox to subscribe does NOT appear.
I already asked in the thread announcing the new mobile version, but I'm not sure it was noticed. How can we subscribe to a thread without replying to it when using the mobile version? It's a pain to switch to the full site before being able to subscribe.
I can also confirm that I was given the option to subscribe to a thread I was already subscribed to when replying on the mobile site version. However, it didn't result in duplicate emails.
MVP9596 > ok, i'll see if I can replicate it again. I don't know if it was from quick reply, full-reply, or mobile reply. I was switching between the browser on my computer and phone at the time I think D=
I stand corrected. I DID in fact get two emails for a thread I subscribed to a second time while replying using the mobile version. It's the "Costco Coupons May 9-June 2 2013 - Michelin $70 off 4 tires" thread.
Would recommend adding an "ignore category" feature in Hot Deals so that certain types of deals don't show up on the list.
For example, there are many, many gun deals (I'm talking multiple per day) and I and many members have no interest in these deals, but they clutter the page. Would be nice to hide deals in certain categories not of interest to the user.
