Default Merge Hot Deals and Free Stuff

With the relative lack of activity in both subcategories, most people don't even bother to check the freebies anymore. I know I bearely even check hot deals anymore. When a good freebie deal comes around (like shoprunner, which i did get), no one sees it!

Don't you have people in your basement to attend to?

i agree with the OP. i check the Hot Deals forum every day. once in a while, i take a peek at the free stuff forum. i got lucky and saw the shoprunner free deal.

if i understand correctly, there are two parts of the free stuff forum: Business to Consumer (B2C) and Peer to Peer (P2P). please at least move the B2C to the hot deals forum. thanks.

I agree with the OP with the exception for the tacky thread tag.

I agree. Free stuff gets 7 topics per month, and I just missed some free fries.

Agreed Free stuff should be moved into Hot Deals. I check hot deals quite often, I check freebies just often enough to know I missed something yesterday.

We are going to take this under serious consideration. Please be patient, as consensus can take some time.

I agree as well. I hardly ever go into the Free Stuff area, and I might actually partake of freebies occasionally if I saw it posted in Hot Deals.

Thank you for thinking it over.........

We could have CATAGORY LABELS for threads there...... If something is FREE,they select "FREE" and thier thread title will show up like this

[FREE] 2 liter bottle of Pepsi

Good enough for me. Some things like that have been long overdue!
