How to find the most popular threads in Hot Deals?

I visit Slickdeals usually several times a day, but I do not spend all day here. I have a life too.

When I go into the forums, one of the things I do is to try to look for the most popular threads, since they are probably the most interesting.

Example- this thread: slickdeals.net/f/8389913

I found this thread by accident today. I would have liked to have found it at least within a week of the initial posting, when it was probably

still very useful. It is still an active thread, as far as I can tell, but it is too late to be of much use now, except for reference.

This frustrated me. I wondered why I missed it, so I did a little test to see why it was never popping up.

1. Tried clicking on Ratings. Doesn't work, even though it has a rating of +169 now.
2. Tried clicking on Replies. Doesn't work, even though the replies are 3307 now.
3. Tried clicking on Views. Doesn't work, even though the number of views is 287,597 now!

So, is anyone willing to share the secret? How to find the most popular threads?

Hey, quick question. Were you just sorting the threads in Hot Deals? The link you provided had been moved to Deal Talk so it wouldn't have shown up in Hot Deals when you sorted them out.

Or was that just an example and you're having troubles in general with this?


Thanks Smilie
