Default Deals and Savings

In light of a few recent posts, I figured I'd ask and see what you all thought about a board for posting sales and the like.

I figure if there's a sale going on and it's on it's own board, it's less likely to get buried under other probably bigger gaming news and whatever.

thoughts?

I think that'd be cool.

To sell things.

To people.

I think just a thread might work.

A thread would really suffice, if it was stickied in the right place it would easily get attention.

A thread would be fine, especially if the op did a good job keeping it updated.

I'd been posting game related sale stuff in the general news thread, and then in the rumor/news thread on the previous forum, but a sale thread for general wouldn't be shabby.

Two sites I'd recommend to be in the thread
http://www.slickdeals.net/ <- it has saved me a shitload of money
http://www.woot.com/ <- If I had the money to impulse shop I would buy a lot of stuff from here

I am going to be looking through these sites for hours looking over stuff I can't afford.

Hmm thinking about it a singular thread might encounter some problems. Mostly because comments about the item drown out actual helpful/useful information. I was thinking about it and if I said something mildly offtopic in the thread I'd feel the need to delete posts and the like especially if the thread got pretty big.

subforum with an informative sticky?

I was gonna suggest taking another board that's rarely used and transforming it into that type of board, but the thread idea is honestly best.

Chinfish Saga is the most useless board.

But yeah dedicated OP for the thread idea is super important.

I'd suggest myself O:

Could always have a Consumer board or something, all about shopping and buying and the like.

Could move "Most Recent Purchase" over to it then. I've always wondered why it's in gaming when people post eeeeeverything they've bought recently.

No, not tradition, jacktard. I made the thread for games. People just started posting sub sandwiches and music CDs and other shit in there. It's intended for games.

It's a proven fact on these forums that threads rarely go the way they're intended.

I think a thread with an OP who's willing to update the most recent deals works well. Even if the thread after the sale is mentioned goes off topic.
