Ability to create and/or filter deal alerts based on category
I do this today by creating a deal alert with the key words field matching the category exactly, and I am not sure if I am getting hits because the category is being searched, or because the key words are actually in the posts (which would mean I am probably missing some).
SInce the category field is there and is a required field, it would be cool to be able to use it to construct a deal alert.
I would also like to be able to modify other deal alerts I have (like my thumbs and FP deal alerts) to not send me emails on things I have no interest by category, that would be sweet so I don't have to wade through tons of good deals for things I don't want, and my email admin at work would probably like me better too for decreasing load on his system, I am lucky he hasn't filtered this domain in our spam filter .
Same with tags, but that is a nice to have (and not sure how well that would work) because that one is more free text IMO, vs. the Categories which are all predefined and nicely laid out and granular enough to create alerts from based on someone's interests. But it could work, would have to experiment with alerts based on tags and see how well.
