Top Deals, Comments, Forum Posts, Members of The Month and Other Stats for January 2015


January is historically a very slow month in terms of shopping and traffic to OzBargain. We did however smash one record for the most amount of comments in a deal. Free AFL Live Pass Subscription - First 10,000 Complete Classic League Commissioners currently has 7,243 comments spanning 73 pages. The next highest comment count for a deal is 2,713. It appears that not only is OzBargain full of professional but now also full of commissioners.

I've added a couple of more stats this month in regards to moderation. As you know we get around 2,000 reports a month. We not only deal with these but we have other systems & checks that flag things to us. Remember on Lost how they had to type the numbers in every 108 minutes….Yeah, it often feels like that.
