It helps to have problematic deals identified (like Tanga rings and eBay memory cards). So, let's drill into some specifics. What would you like to see less of? What would you like to see more of?
  
 Thanks for taking note of what I said, I would agree with your suggestion to discuss it further. It seems however that your post has been unpinned and will filter down and disappear into oblivion unless it is pinned again.

Heh.. heh..heh... Your listening to an ape.

  
I want to start a spin-off of the conversation over here, since it's really off topic for the other thread.

The goal here is to produce information that will help the Best Deals Team make decisions that source the community with the kind of deals you are looking for. To that end, let's talk about two main things:

(1) What kinds of deals do you want to see?
(2) What kinds of deals do you not want to see?

For both, try to be a specific as possible.

Let's take it a step further even. What merchants do you want see deals from? Our staff has conversations with merchants all the time. We could use these conversations to let the merchant know specifically the type of deals our community wants to see, and even what you don't want to see.

Obviously there are going to be differing opinions on what member A wants to see and what member B wants to see, so let please let us know your thoughts.

As I said, buried into oblivion. In what is now 4 days you have gotten 87 views for this post, unfortunate, but a good thought on your part. Since I like the B&M/YMMV type deals, which granted, often lead one on a wild goose chase but they can't be categorized. Not to mention that what I want to see vs. what the next person wants to see, will be totally different.

All I am asking for is that the "Best Deals Team" not be the ones to decide what constitutes a "Best deal". To many times they seem to be patting themselves on the back and giving kudos to themselves.

I do understand what you're trying to accomplish but I can't think of an organized way to do this. After all, I am rather simple minded.

I think that a sortable front page would go a long way for Best Deals. I would like to be able to only see categories that I'm interested in and hide other deals. While a drill / driver set might be a great price, I'm never going to buy one of those. I'm betting the same can be said for other members.

So let member A and member B choose their preferences independently so they each see the deals most relevant to their interests.
