To help people out who do not know already there is a go to first new post since last time visited button to the left of thread title on the forum. It is poorly marked and easily missed. It makes keeping track of these large threads much easier.
Okay I'm the first to admit it. I've been reading Eastx's thread since inception, always doing it the hard way... going to the last page and working backwards.
Thanks for this tip, backwards Conjurer!
As for the discussion of the value of the OP vs the deep thread, I read every post, and only read the OP if I get there accidentally. I suspect though that the OP serves a purpose for the unspoken visitors of this thread... the casual reader who simply can't visit this forum 1-5 times/day to keep up. They may not stop to say thank you, but there's probably quite a few visitors who benefit from your work, Severose.
I personally would prefer to see this thread die, and return to the exciting time when there was more than one single windows logo
on the front page of the CAG deals forum at any point in time. This thread smacks of PC-gamer discrimination... we're all lumped in here so that more console deals can fit on the first page of CAG deals.
Anyone can see ALL the current deals on Steam with one click at steampowered.com, or in the client; that will always be more efficient than the OP of this thread.
I would miss the community that's sprung up here, though. I get a lot of good info from you guys. I know my opinion is a minority opinion. I just like to pine for the old days.
