CheapyD, I am an avid user of this site and I try to help out the community when I can. I hope this does not lead to a suspension, or banning, from the site. If you or another Admin./Mod. deletes the thread I'll take it as you have read my request and nothing is to be changed.
I am messaging you on regards of possibly putting the "Amazon Price Matching Thread" back in the "Video Game Deals" section of the website. In all technicalities, people do post deals in the thread (I was unaware of the Playstation Vita deal that was posted).
I firmly believe that the thread will help the CAG community through, not only deal posts, but by bringing users (including lurkers) together. With the help of each other, the thread will provide CAGs with a beneficial deal-shopping experience. There have been numerous times to where others and I have hoped for Amazon to price match other retailers' deals but were unable to obtain it because of the lack of knowledge and togetherness. If you were to refer back to the thread, there was an abundance of Positive feedback regarding the idea; and there were posts showing cooperation. Also, I have a high suspicion that the "Video Game Deals" forum gets more views than the "Deal/Shopping Discussions & Bragging Rights" forum on a daily basis. Right now the viewing numbers are 929 viewing for the Video Game Deals forum and only 45 viewing for the other.
Since the thread deletion I have seen "requests" in threads for Amazon to price match a posted deal. Here is one example:

So I am asking again, please, will you bring the "Amazon Price Matching Thread" back to the "deals" section? This is not just for personal gain but to help the community as a whole.
PS - Here is the link to the thread. Amazon Price Matching Thread - "There's No I in Team":
