Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

While we're at it, why don't we build a system that tracks Amazon and automatically posts deals that drop a certain percentage? (I'm 92 percent joking, 8 percent serious)
I've already started working on that but it looked like there wouldn't be much interest.

How many of y'all want this feature?

I would. I love scrolling through @jack6941 's deal even though the vast majority of them are irrelevant to me. (No, I only have two hands, so I'm not buying 3,245 watches...)

It doesn't hurt to have it in it's own section, if that's an option. "Automatically generated Amazon deals." Unless that ruins the continuity of the site.
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

SD has something similar. I think it would be very cool assuming it's a separate section of the site. Clogging up recent posts wouldn't be so cool.

On that note, there should be an option to put more than one poll in each thread, perhaps even allowing to put polls in posts.

+1
Though you can always put a google form link into any post.... I wonder if there is a way to embed them?

Only if the deal boards are redesigned to keep this thread out of the way somewhat.

Right - otherwise it'll clutter up the legit deals with these theoretical deals

Maybe even a subsite, something like www.deals.forums.dansdeals.com

Or else a separate section you can access from the forum home page.

+100 and tags/categories would be nice too, so you can filter and search
