In mobile, there should be an option in the sidebar for home. As opposed to having to click on the DD logo, usually by mobile to get back to the home page the have a button in the menu, clicking the logo is only for desktop sites.

Beautiful!!

A few things:
1) Before "CREDIT CARDS SHOPPING DEALS AIRFARE DEALS DINING & TRAVEL DANíS COMMENTARY" there should be a HOME button


Latest best practice is not to have a separate home link (you can click on the logo)

If your on a desktop, you can try the "explore new features link" when you are on the homepage above the logo (still a bit buggy though)
In mobile, there should be an option in the sidebar for home. As opposed to having to click on the DD logo, usually by mobile to get back to the home page the have a button in the menu, clicking the logo is only for desktop sites.
There is a "Home" button, (sort of). See attached.

All the links in that row need to be emboldened a little.

Even if it's emboldened,there still needs to be a home button in the side bar. That row is marely just a site map.

So clicking on the logo on mobile does not take you back to homepage?

It does, but usually mobile sites do have a home button in the menu. (Even nowadays)
Look at amazon & I think they are a enough up to date company

Right now it's taking you to a page with just comments? I'm not sure I understand...
Yes
Here's a screenshot. Notice that it's scrolled up all the way to the top of the page, and this is how it looks; no post and half ad.
While loading I saw the post for a second, then it got lost and I only saw the comments section.
+1 last night, but now it seems to have changed.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Were nested comments considered? That would allow for more fluid conversation oriented comments on each post.

Windows Chrome Desktop

1. The page can be a lot wider than it is, there is a ton of dead space.
2. You can add an icon for hot deals, maybe that's the trending posts on the right
3. Dan's commentary doesn't have a picture next to the headline
4. Social media twice, 1 on top and 2 and on the side, no need
5. On the comments the logo is different (see attached)
6. The order 1. credit cards 2. shopping deals should be the opposite, shopping deals first
Will stop here for now

I am guilty of not reading the whole thread, and I apologize if this has been mentioned upthread.
Personally, I think that if every post has a picture at the top that it might be good idea that the picture is simply the airport codes and if it is round trip or not (ex. "JFK --> SFO", or JFK <--> SFO) to make it easier to find relevant deals when navigating the website. I am also not sure if the pictures would appear in the notifications, in which case it can even more helpful.

1. It is intentionally that width based on UI research of optimal website spacing.
2. There will is an icon just need to get the coloring right.
3.
Important!
The menu will not be working properly for the next 2 hours as I am currently working on it
4. Doesn't bother me the header would be empty without it.
5. As mentioned the logo isn't final.
6. Will think about it. Not a huge difference though imo.

We did request nested comments. What do people think about disqus in general?
