Is it just my browser? DansDeals.com Hat Tips on the members profile  is not a hyperlink to the main site anymore.
Thank your lucky stars.

On a desktop. Chrome is not a hyperlink, but IE is a link. Weird.

I'm using my phone which uses the regular layout like a computer, works fine.   
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Mine redirects to DDMS but not to the specific posts that received the HT. Did it ever link to specific HT posts?
That would actually be pretty cool to have that specific hat tip by the op click-able to take you to that hat tip received for the ddms post.

It couldn't be by specific post. The most it could be is by user.

If there could be variables in the URL linked, then something like:
http://www.dansdeals.com/index.php?s=%UserName%
Would return:
http://www.dansdeals.com/index.php?s=Lubaby
For me etc..

I think I saw this already suggested earlier in this thread, but it is so annoying to me that I will 'bump' it to bring it up again.

I really would like to be able to sort the list of posts in a forum by the date the threads were started. This way I could look at the top of the Deal Requests or Amazon Deals or other forums, and look at only newly discovered deals. Instead, I am forced to reread the same deals over and over due to new comments being posted on existing or even old deals.

Both sort orders have their purposes and merits. I just want to (sometimes) be able to choose 'the other one' to save time.

In fact the Thread Started date/time is not even listed on the forum topic list.

BTW, lately many of the bumps have been price drops.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

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

Is there a current setting where you if someone quotes you or tags you in a post, you can be notified?

Yes, it's been mentioned before.

Just a suggestion: On the boards where all threads are displayed and where it says who started each thread it should also say when the thread was started. This would be especially helpful in the Deals/Deal Requests board. With this feature one would know immediately whether a deal has (for example) 4-5 pages because it is a hot deal that just came up and is being discussed at length, or because it's a dead deal and it's just those who got it are discussing further steps some two months later etc. (Hope I'm clear enough with the point.)

And as TimT {who by the way seems to be going into retirement} :P  mentioned, it's been asked before that too.
