Right now there are 11 pinned threads for weekly or recurring deals on the deals forum. I think that is too many. There are two of them just for toys r us, and two for other retailers as well, the current week and the previous week. I think they should be combined into one thread for the current week and one thread for the next week.

That would leave 3 threads instead of 11. One for the amazon digital downloads, one for current week ads, one for next weeks ads. And of course things that come up like black Friday or something would have more opportunity to be featured.

I feel like the weekly ads are mostly just msrp stuff these days anyway and people highlight the good stuff in normal threads.

I just think having 10 of the 30 first page threads be weekly ad sales is a waste. Would allow other deals to stay on the front page faster.

Or sticky popular threads like amazon warehouse and steam, psn, and Xbox live deals, or the ps4/xb1 reserve threads right now. Just not so much attention on these msrp ads and threads with often less than 50 replies.

Thanks for your time.

I concur.  It's gotten out of hand.

mods eventually combine threads (which cause other problems with people's comments). 


PM for BB GCU and Elite+ services!

I haven't seen them combine the Sunday threads in awhile.  Perhaps having one wiki thread for each company would work.

Also, the DVD/Blu Ray section needs cleaning up.  It has ads from 3 weeks ago still pinned.

Bumping this since the Video Game Deals forum currently has 12 stickied threads.  Can we get at least the current weeks threads combined to lessen how many there are?

Cheapy usually does the weekly merging of ad threads, but he is away right now. He is the only one with the ability to make a summary post in a new merged thread. When I merge threads, it just arranges them by original post date, and that will just make the OP of the other weekly ad threads become buried within the new mega-thread.

 

Edit:

Going to unpin the future weekly ad deals and only pin those that are active right now.
