Thanks a lot for the forum, I hope this forum hits off pretty big. I couldn't stand those comments anymore. Thanks for creating this.

Btw, can I become a mod for this forum?  ;) ;D

I think this is a great idea.

I assume that you plan on putting a link to the forum from the main DansDeals page for quick access.

Either way, Thanks!

Dan's gonna put a link on the main page once the forum really gets going. We need the active DansDeals members to post as much as possible!

Heh, I was one of the admin's of a mobile developers forum for a while, and all the people who were uber-helpful and knowledgeable became moderators. At one point we scared off most of the newbies, and everyone who was posting was a moderator.  Silly, really.

Its like that line from the Incredibles:
"when everyone is Super, no one is."

Anyway, I just want to say I thought the choice of forum sections was odd- Its as if DansDeals is only about travel and/or Credit Cards.
Yes, the CC and travel information is formidable, and possibly what sets it apart from other deal sites, but its not why I come to dansdeals.com in the first place.
You guys should have sections for technology talks, hot deals, products that are worthwhile or to avoid, etc... The way its set up now, all that would end up in "General Discussion", while you have two sections for travel (On the Road and Trip/Destination Reports could arguably be the same thing, ie. both travel, and I would personally group those together, if not make them subforums of a travel parent group).

Just my 2 cents, keep up the good work!

Is it me or does everyone get kicked back out of the thread after making a new post?

Hi Everyone!

I see this time around were getting a bit more action around here, way to go!

I think this is a great idea.

Dan's gonna put a link on the main page once the forum really gets going. We need the active DansDeals members to post as much as possible!

I think it needs to be up now in order to make this a success. These sites need to really be very well integrated into one big super site.

I agree, we need to add a few more sections in here.
