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

  • We're on our way to 5,000,000 comments with about 30,000 to go.

  • Scrimshaw has been polling the community on what items we should buy from laptops, cars, phone plans and more. This will hopefully make buying decisions easier in addition to having people not continually posting the same questions over and over again in the forums.

  • Father's Day is only a couple of weeks away. Also coming up in September is R U OK? Day. I'll be away next month but hopefully we should get our R U OK? day promo going.

Site Updates of Interest (Not a full list)

  • As referrals are now banned, it didn't make sense to mark third party sites as referrers. They are now marked as Third Party for clarity. See here.
  • Added ability to bookmark comments. See here
  • Enter comment by pressing Ctrl + Enter. See here.
