When actually going into a post (not quickview) the picture that comes up on the top is WAAAAAAAAAAAAY to big.

Although I feel that the site had to be updated - I will greatly miss the old layout  :(
Too cluttered? I feel so too.

Matter of taste: Put post titles in bolder font and a bit darker blue.

Quote from:  Header of the "Airfare Deals" category
Save money while traveling the world. We post the hottest airfare prices, catch the most sought after glitches, and find the best mileage deals available online.
Is this something Dan really wants to have as part of the header of a category?

Quote from:  Header of the "Shopping Deals" category
Dan and JJ third person hand pick the lowest priced and highest rated items on the web to offer our first person readers the best quality shopping deals. As they (arguably) third person say, there are deals and then there are Dan's Deals.
Should have this match.

Quote from:  Header in "Dining & Travel" category
Everything you need to plan the perfect trip! Learn about the latest airline news, and the best mileage programs out there. Find deals on hotels, restaurants & cars, ensuring you have the best dining & travel experience anywhere you go.
If the category  is "Dining & Travel" you may want to reorder what can be found under this category to "restaurants, hotels & cars", so that it's in the same order as the category name.

When you swipe from the left, you can choose a category. The only way back us to go back to the home screen via the dd logo. Intuitively i think you should be able to swipe from the left and unchoose the selection, or choose 'all topics.

Oh, and nice work.

Under credit cards it should go by most popular or alphabetic. Now its random. Why even have a tab for bank accounts when the last post was 6 years ago? And why is buy.com even close to amazon?

The tabs under some of the categories (especially under the "Dining & Travel" category) need to really be revamped. There's no clear cut line as to what is a category and what is a specific.

For example: Brazil and Hawaii are too specific. If they are about TRs to those places they should be under the Trip Notes tab. If it's about general info of these places then there should be a "Destinations" tab with submenus to all various destinations available. (IOW why Brazil and Hawaii of all places  ???)

Yes. Just pointing out specific ones which IMHO should be knocked to the bottom

The whole idea of what deserves to get a tab and what not, as well as what is considered a subcategory and what not is very vague, and will need to be clarified by admins.

Does "hide expired deals" just work for sales? For example I still see amex offers which expired already. How is expired defined? By being a dead deal? Or just past the time

My guess would be that it happens when an admin tags a post as expired. In which case it obviously adds lots of work for Dan and JJ to remember to tag those posts as expired in order for that feature to work accurately.

Maybe just get rid of that whole part off the main page. Now that I see that they have a time based "latest posts" with those categories...

Well then it shouldn't be put up unless properly tagged. That's going to be a lot of work....
