Good idea.

But doesn't everyone browse through the unread posts all the time, and for those it doesn't change a thing with the spam level?

You can ignore the board. and then go back and look at it later

RTM is the best way to let Mods know. Thanks.
Don't mind to be flooded with RTM? And possible for the same request? Probably easier to check the deals board every so often. Just my 2.

Will posts in that board count towards post count​?😋
I don't sin, I give myself opportunities to repent.

One of the issues which this does not resolve is that the good Amazon deals are still diluted by all the "I have no idea if anyone has any interest in this product or if there are much better prices on the exact same item with a different ASIN but maybe it will help someone out there so I will post it"
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

The only way to solve that is by liking good deals and leaving comments when it's a bad deal, or find a plugin that allows dislikes for just one board on smf.

Why does it need to be for just one board? Unless you are dealing with dislikes to the member not the thread.

The reason dislikes went away fwir was because it was being abused as a bully tactic between members. So just having it on the deal board would help solve the issue. Or if dislikes don't take away likes, but rather just shows on that specific thread which would be an even better solution.

I don't plan on moving them all, just the current relevant ones.

so it is this
dislikes to the member not the thread.
Are there plugins which allow likes or dislikes to threads instead of members?

That is highly unlikely but at least my question is answered.
