The ads displayed every few posts or so are annoying, but I guess that's purely a business decision.
On mobile I assume? Might have less, as I said the ads/banners aren't set yet.

Do you want us to comb through it to get to the nitty-gritty, or use it casually and see if we bump into anything that hurts?

iPhone 7+. Chrome.

Line height (or box size) needs to be adjusted.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Ok, I'll start by combing...  :P

The top blue bar that has the "sign in/join" (which doesn't work with my DDF login btw), "advertiser disclosure", "forums" etc. is too small. It's not inviting enough to DD/DDF. Once this is enlarged, along with the social media icons to the right there will be no need for the HUGE intrusive social media icons right beneath it.

Cutting off the top of letters is very "in" right now.

The logo and ad banners are not final.

Please add all fixes to the wiki.
Where is the wiki?
Nice job, guys!!

Suggestions: Having the title of the post show in a box by hovering over it is redundant IMHO.
OTOH, hovering over a button called "read more" under each post that would show the full text of that post sans pictures would be incredibly time saving.  I wouldn't have to be transferred to another page, wait, and read a triple spaced text that takes up a page or three.  Likewise, hovering over the number of comments (on the upper right of the post blurbs) to see a box pop up with the text of the comments would be great.

If you miss the 15 line posts use the legacy site. We even added a cool skip to next post feature.
so far the legacy link just shows item lists. Haven't see a paragraph view. A 5-line intro is fine for the basic site. It seems that some links show 4 and some show 5 lines.

Will look further to see if there are 10-line paragraphs in the legacy mode. Here is the current legacy page view on a MacBookPro:

It's interesting how "watch" became a shopping category (tab under shopping deals) like Amazon, ebay deals, coupons, free stuff etc.

Maybe should have a section where members can search by product (either like a filter or have the alphabet layed out where a user can click on one of the alphabet and see deals on products that begin with that letter).

Using firefox on a windows laptop. See attached, though the picture in the attachment is flawed cuz it doesn't really put the screen in proportion to how it looks when viewing the actual webpage.
