Critical Update - Silent Slickdeals Movement
That thread was quickly locked by a moderator that opposed the idea so much he did not wish there to be any discussion about it by users, saying that SlickDeals should be an open and advertised place where people could go to find deals.
Since the new year and that thread, Slickdeals has changed tremendously:
SELECT PICTURE TO MAGNIFY
The site has shot up in traffic by nearly 45 percent since late last year. It has gone up so high that it has almost hit the top 250 websites visited in the entire world. While this may be a good thing for most websites, there is one thing to be absolutely clear about:
This is a horrible trend for SlickDeals.
The more people on the site, the worse off all SlickDeals members will be. If there is no change by YOU, SlickDeals member, and the rest of the userbase and its staff, you can expect:
-Far Fewer Deals
-Far Worse Deals
-Far More Empty Deals (deals disappearing almost instantly after coming up)
-Far Less Involved Userbase
As the population of viewers increases, as will the attention drawn to the deals themselves. Stores will catch on and deals will disappear. Just recently I called a store over a deal only to find out that there had been NINE other callers. The deal was less than half a day old. The few deals left will not be worth making threads over, and the added population will only lead to more lurkers and an overall less-educated userbase.
It's been two months since I first posted the thread, and since then things have only gotten worse for SlickDeals. If you agree that SlickDeals should be preserved as the site it was before it began this downward decline, join the Silent Slickdeals Movement , change your signature and user title, and support the cause.
