    In live view it would be great to list the classified's type (wanted or selling)

    At present if the post doesn't include WTB/WTS in the subject you have to go into the post to identify.

      How would we hide crappy deals from being viewable on the new deals page?

        Minimum up vote to qualify as a new deal

        • +2 votes

          If that were the case, how would a deal achieve the positive vote threshold to be visible in the first place? The current system is that a deal is visible on the new deals page unless it accrues too many negative votes.

          •  

            @ascorbic: Deal visible for 3 hours with zero votes and is removed if no votes are received in that time. Probation period.

            (Would need to be during reasonable Australian based “awake” hours.)

              @swapsey: What about deals that are time sensitive? There was a deal on free delivery on Krispy Kremes the other day and it was posted ~90 minutes before the deal expired. There would be many other examples like this which a 'probation period' impractical.

              •  

                @IceCreamBandit: If the deal was posted within 90 minutes of expiry then it qualifies for probation period - in other words it is live for those 90 minutes regardless of whether someone upvotes it or not. Probation means the deal is live regardless of any upvotes. It is like giving it a chance to get votes. Chances are it will get upvotes. My hypthesis is that there will be very few deals posted that won't get an upvote withing 30 minutes anyway. You could make it 60 minutes probation or 90 minutes or whatever. Probation could be monitored especially in the first days of removing negative votes so that you adjust the probation period to maximise success.

                The whole idea is to actively remove toxic mindset of users. People should be trying to succeed deals not fail them.

    Make bargains great again

    Bring back unlimited neg voting on deals and restrict positive votes instead. Positive votes are sus and people making them should provide a reason and whether or not they are some way associated with or get a kickback from the store selling the product.

    Terrible ads. When logged out, some ads even cover the menu UI meaning that I can't actually use the site.

    Happens on multiple devices on multiple networks.

      That doesn't look normal, though you are right - i don't remember there being so many ads on the front page.

      I would be very surprised (and disappointed) if that was due to ozbargain

      Why would you log out?

      •  

        Happens even when I'm logged in..

        Originally thought it was just when I was logged out. Even happens on this page as I type lmfao

    • Interesting. First of all, I have not seen anything like this in my experience, and I would have reported the offending ads to the advertising network if I come across one. I am just looking at the prebid stats for this page and the CPM for our forum pages is so low they can only come from Google. I do not think Google serve this kind of ads.

      I'll keep an eye on it.

    raise the amount of negs i can give each day, theres so many idiots out there and it makes me sad when i run out

    • -2 votes

      I have never run out of negs before. You need not be sad just ‘cos you cannot neg those you think deserve them. Chances are they already struggle with higher levels of depression, stress, anxiety, and insecurity. E.g Correlate these people to their comments, and it is clear many of them have low life, relationship or job satisfaction. Generally-speaking, life has a way of keeping score.

      At least it seems like the upvote limit has been removed or raised, haven't got the message that I hit the 24 hour limit in a while.

  • +1 vote

    when someone tries to create a forum post which includes the words "is" and "scam" can we add a popup which just says "yes, it is a scam". would save so many stupid posts

    also, when someone creates a post with "car accident" in the title, it won't let them post without uploading a ms paint diagram?

  •  

    For deals reported as duplicate could we please have a link to the original deal within the duplicate message?

    Many times I find myself interested in a deal only to be hit with a duplicate message and then not being able to find the original post.

    ignore this my idiot ass didnt see you can click the duplicate word to go to original post. would be nice if it were marked a bit clearer
