Made 5 semi-speculative bookings X5 pax for 1 ways from YYZ
Total cost 6,250 skypesos

This is one odd thread. Why not make a DDF thread if there's a deal worth talking about?
Last I checked we don't charge extra to open threads, though it's not a bad idea to monetize this place...
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I thought monetization happens as a feeding ground for deals

You don't monetize it?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

If monetization is good then more monetization is better. Who's ready for pop-ups :)

Pop ups? What decade are we in? The '90s?

I love DDF design.  Don't you dare changing it. I hate FT.

Don't be like UA, if people are not complaining then don't touch it please.

Have a spare $100K lying around to redesign DDMS, DDF, add some new features, and get an app going?

Reminds me of my company where I work, everyone was upset at a redesign,  but in the end after getting used to the new you realize how important it was to move on...

For a 50/50 share of your revenue? Sure

That 100k for an app can become another 10k avid followers... investment.

Well, I'm on FT long enough and I don't like it. Also, FT pages takes forever to load. Is it just me?

I'm not convinced the ROI of a $100K investment to modernize the site will be that compelling.
