Top Deals, Comments, Forum Posts, Members of The Month and Other Stats for June 2017

We hit some new records in June:

  • 944 comps posted.
  • 100,458 comments.
  • 10,736,188 sessions.
  • 34,656,248 pageviews.
  • 3727 reports.

    I posed the question in March whether we would reach 200,000 deals or 5,000,000 comments first. Still a close race.

eBay and their Hump Month deals took out the top 10 of the fastest deals to the front page, 9 of 10 deals fastest to 100 votes, 7 out of 10 of the most popular deals and 4 out of 5 of the deals with the heaviest traffic. Safe to say despite the constant negative comments, covfefe.

Site Updates of Interest (Not a full list)

  • American Express referrals are being checked automatically to see if they are pointing to the correct card and are valid.
  • Changed default editing on competitions to 60 days from 14 days.
  • Automatically report deals submitted with just a picture to moderators. This is useful as after 10 minutes, store subscription emails are sent out and if there is no store attached to the deal, there is no notification.
  • Delaying of store subscriptions to 10 minutes. This allows the moderators and power users to fix up or remove deals. This should mean better emails and less SPAM email to users.
