I like your format better.  What's wrong with the way it is? (I'm on android) Each post is about the same size as the squatters.

Visually, large image is nicer.

Practically, the more information out of the post, the better a decision can be made whether to click or to move on.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Here's what I see on my phone:

I see that on my phone too. It seems that the desktop app only shows the first line of the article while the phone app reveals more. In that case I'd vote for the chase cc format which is shorter and also has a smaller image than deals above.

More channels equals more followers. I definitely see more deals because if telegram. TG also has a great in screen browser so itís more convenient to check the deal compared to twitter. Also, once thereís a rougel channel with nearly 1k subscribers, if thereís an official option they would all choose that instead.
TG's browser is powered by chrome.
It's nice to not have to re-log into the accounts you are already logged into on chrome.

I agree that the more info the better. I don't agree that a bigger picture looks nicer. A bigger picture somehow makes everything look sloppy in my eyes, loads slower, and requires more scrolling. Just my opinion.

Hmm I wonder what your savings account looks like :)

The latest post (the activity gym) has a working link on Twitter and a broken link on Telegram, it returns a 404 error. Interestingly though, if I type in the URL on my desktop browser it works (https://www.dansdeals.com/?p=144763)

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
