Front Page......should be best deal, not cheapest price?

34 0
There are some crappy products and actual rip off deals on FP.

Wouldn't quality sell better and bring more people to this site?

I agree and it is only from selected persons.

Couldn't agree more. There's a few people that can post practically anything and it gets a ton of plusses and front paged

There is a lot of favoritism on this site and it really is unfair for the majority of other people that do post some really good deals and they get buried where no one can see them, I would think that the owner of this site would want a broad selection of posters to be front paged and not just 5 or 10 select people, I understand they spend there entire lives posting deals on here, but it would be a lot nicer to see some of the good deals that disappear because they don't get plussed and we have to try and hunt them down by going page by page. Just my opinion.

Just to let you know that those selected few that post 100s of deals daily are bringing all the traffic to the site and mods will favor them a lot. Thers nothing can or will be done about it. Just take a deep breath and try to copy/paste as many deals as you can from other sites, just like they do :)

Quality > Quantity. Posting 1000 deals a day and having 15 of them being worthwhile doesnt help anyone. I understand some people do this as their main source of income, thats the problem. I feel they need to set a limit of how many deals you can post a day and people will start making sure what they post is worth it.

I know how you feel. i haven't seen a FP deal posted by "an oldster" in a long time (next to my one or two). I miss Poe and Dvine (i wonder how many kids "D" has now?). I miss "regular" conversations about life aa opposed to sale-talk and complaining. And the $Maker conversations should be private (not public). Stuff like this topic, need NOT be shared with shoppers.

Maybe displaying "total views" would help? I like to use the feature "most clicks" to see what people are REALLY looking at and it's not always the FP deals at the top.

As for copying deals, i am still about 2 minutes behind wookie and ramana. ;)

I think that is a good idea about what ever deals have the most CLICKS should automatically be front paged, because those are the deals that it would seem everyone is really interested in, whereas the PLUSing of deals is just a "Who is my favorite poster" game.
