Update: Thanks everyone for your participation! We're shooting the video soon and we'll share it here as soon as possible. We appreciate all of the responses!!

Hey, FatWallet members! We're putting together a video that's all about you, the community, and we're doing it in the style of "Reading Your Comments" or "Ask Us Anything" videos. If you have a burning question about FatWallet you've always wanted answered or a message you'd like us to see, leave it in this thread for us!

Obviously, not everything will get answered, and we're not going to entertain inappropriate or rude comments or questions. Whatever we don't get to in the video, we can always answer on the forums. Two of our awesome deal hunters, st4rdust and anticlawson, will be helming the video, so if you have questions about deal hunting, deal expertise or really anything deal related, they'll have an answer. We'll also have experts from other departments if you're curious about what it is the rest of us do here at FatWallet, so don't be shy with those questions! 

As always, thank you for making the FatWallet community such a great place to find and talk about deals. We couldn’t do it without you!

Yes! You'll have to view it on YouTube, as the Facebook version makes it extra difficult for us to upload CC. Thankfully... (more)

First, there are the supermodels, male or female as desired. Then there's reading the endless adulation from people who've been moderated. Next is the free made to order waffles. Then, massage time. Coffee break. Private Q and A with the star of their favorite tv show or sports team. Lunch is catered by Per Se. A couple of hours of video games, foosball, or jumping in the plastic ball pit. Fifteen minutes of hoarding the fatwallet piranhas. Then, supermodels again. Finally they go home, their exhausting day of work over at 3pm.

For quite a while I have wondered who designates which are the "Best Deals"? To many times I have found them to be self promoting over the years. Many times not even a deal, no less a "Best Deal". Also what qualifies for the chalice next to our image when we post a deal?

I'm curious how deal hunting is divided among the FW staff.
Are staff assigned certain websites to monitor, is it by category (i.e. electronics, toys, clothing, etc..) or just a free for all?

I'd like to know about the FW bus that picks up the staff for work each day. Who gets to drive it? Do staff members take turns driving or do you have a dedicated bus driver? Are there assigned seats? What songs do you sing as a group on the busride? I mean, I have a pretty good idea of the answers already, but it would be nice to have confirmation.

  It's exactly like that, only without the supermodels, celebrities, and ball pit, though you were right about catered meals (just not from Per Se), massages, and waffles (the toaster kind). You left out epic Nerf battles.

  The bus that you speak of is lined in rubber. In my day it was referred to as the special bus. No assigned seating but all who ride were considered "special". Those within received special treatment and got to go to the zoo, baseball games, special events and more, which we didn't get to go to. I was always jealous.

 These buses were always shorter than ours and they got door to door service, which we never got.

Some of those short buses take field trips to the grocery store, a culmination of months of learning basic practical skills to live in the world.

  Yes! You'll have to view it on YouTube, as the Facebook version makes it extra difficult for us to upload CC. Thankfully, YouTube auto-CCs and then lets us edit it for grammar, spelling, incorrect words, etc.
Thanks for reminding us! We definitely want to be as accessible as possible.
