If it aint broken do NOT fix it

I understand all new/newer sites have glitches.

Now, it takes forever for me to do anything here
Now, the site im viewing crashes often
Now, im an older guy, the colors suck.....too "pastel/weak" looking...hard to read or view....should not use yellow, pink or any light colors.....we need MORE contrast and perhaps a thicker or larger font size.

I avoiding slickdeals until some of these issues are worked out....

Thanks

Namrats

From what I can tell, the front page was changed to allow space for more ads. I can deal with that but something was done to cause it to load rather slow.

Even so, the part that is getting annoying is the issue that the site has been flat out down for most of the last couple of days. I have been getting some errors of some odd advertisement silently crashing the in background here as well.

Site has been slow a few times in the last couple days for me too. First thing I do on all my Chromebooks and cellphones is set the font size as big as it will go. Still mad about having to buy my first pair of reading glasses a few months ago!!!!Frown

They've been having some network issues. Issues with the site are usually discussed here: https://slickdeals.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5

You can still switch to the classic theme. You can also switch at least the the classic to a dark "midnight" theme if you want

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

An adblocker does wonderful things.

As for the site being down, from what I see in the thread referenced, it was a DOS attack????....Really? Why would anyone go to such an effort to hit a site like this????

Classic theme is better anyway imo. No annoying pictures wasting space.

Ads are ok.
It's not ok to use my expensive data.
Website owners should think about it.

I have already abandoned many websites because they want me to disable my ad-blocker.
Are you kidding me? Do you know how much it costs for 1GB data?
