A thought I have had for a while, which might be applicable to both DDMS and DDF, is to have a "Parenting" sub-header.

This leads me to suggest adding subcategories for Shopping, Credit Cards, and Travel etc. Or alternatively to add filters (such as by price range, sub category, destination, airline, issuing bank, etc.)

Well then it shouldn't be put up unless properly tagged. That's going to be a lot of work....
Unless they let people (DDFers?) mark posts as expired, something like RTM. It would have to be moderated, of course, but might help somewhat.

That's what the comments section is for.  :) (And they obviously see each comment, as they have moderation.)

Well I think that it shouldn't be offered till fully set up. It may be a good idea for future deals, but not for past deals. It would be like an Israeli falafel store trying to open too early, no chairs, no fries, no cucumbers...you get my point. Don't offer a feature unless its finished. I'll gladly volunteer some time to go through posts now, and mark as expired or current

Things get cut off. Not sure if this is what they were discussing up thread

The arrow drop-down tab (in the categories that have that due to too many tabs) gets cut off in the middle. (Firefox on windows pc) See attachment.

Love the "explore new features" a drop too slow like you don't know its continuing...maybe put numbers by each as it goes so u know there's more coming, idk, maybe have a next arrow so u can go a drop faster
And that you can click on the logo to get back to the homepage should be first up IMO. That's something which people want to know, but don't necessarily have the patience to watch till the end to find out.

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.
This would make it very very heavy to load

If anyone paid attention, I made a smarter sticky header, when you scroll down a page and then scroll back up (even slightly) the header will appear so you don't have to scroll back to top.
Noticed it, thought it's a bug that it doesn't show the whole time & wanted to report it. Now after you explained it I see your idea.

When looking at one deal, it's confusing that the words start after the pic and then continue under the pic. Maybe the pic should be on the right side of the post?


Also, do you really need 2 buttons for "buy on amazon"? If so, they should both have capital "B"s

What are "sample deals"?

Can the Disqus comments load on the deal page, instead of taking you to a new page that just contains the comments?
