And then the thread title is inaccurate

Maybe we could make that in the two deal boards the title should always be editable, so if there's a price drop someone could update the title.

Another feature I'd like is the ability to see only specific threads on one page, sort of like a playlist I suppose. You would add something to "My Threads" and then with one click you could bring up all these specific threads.

That is also available on tapa where you can subscribe to threads.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Not in my tapa (I refuse to upgrade >:().

Regardless, this is something I'd use on a PC primarily.

Post in those threads, and they will come up under 'show new replies to your posts'.

That'll bring up every thread I've replied to. I want only specific threads instead.

I think that a big portion of this tension is due to the limitations of SMF. These forums have evolved and grown to the point that much of the original purpose which many had on this forum is getting lost. Adding the Amazon board is slightly helpful but is a bandaid on a wound needing many stitches. For Dan and JJ to expect someone to volunteer to redo the site for them is a bit ridiculous, but they seem unwilling to invest the money in having it done professionally by someone who can get it done right. Apparently they do not see the value in doing so. In its current format this discord will only continue and get worse while long standing members will drift away since the DDF they knew and were active in no longer exists. Some of the overposting by HT collectors is due to their view of what is incentivized on this forum. It is somewhat like giving a prize to a child when bad behavior occasionally leads to a good result. THat only incentivizes the bad behavior to continue. This situation has caused some (myself included) to snap at some legitimately good deals (such as myself at mileagejunkie that he referred to above (I apologized there and do so again here). I am not privy to the inside finances of DD and DDF, but until Dan and JJ see a value in redoing the forums this will only get worse. It can eventually destroy the entire forums.

Then perhaps Dan/JJ should hire a mod dedicated to those two boards (Deals and Amazon Deals). If someone is on top of what's going on there, there's a lot they can clean up. They can merge threads to reduce clutter, they can update titles to indicate the status of deals such as price reduction, or dead etc. In my opinion that place has a lot of potential to be a tidy area that people won't dread visiting.

maybe if there was a way to make just the price editable by anyone... it would have to be a separate field apart from the title.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
