I don't know what to make of this, nor the area to fill in the catagories, since I never search by catagory nor do I look at related deals, since for all I know they are probably already dead. I'm bookmarked to go right to the forums main page where I then click on "hot deals" and just browse through whatever's there. If I'm looking for something specific, I use the search button. That's me though,everybody is different.
Thread author below the deal looks fine.
I like the price tracker feature once it matures a bit.
It looks fine. I like windows 8 and don't mind change. Just telling you how I do things so you have another viewpoint.
Maybe you could code into the user profile an option for people to turn off or keep minimized by default "related deals" and "community deal details" if that's possible. I would get a bit fired up though if they changed the thumbs up and thumbs down icons to those jagged versions they like to use once in a while though. I also like the yellowish hue the forums have. Not many forums have it and it's useful for monitor calibration. I know it sounds strange but I've come to associate that color with slickdeals, which has a somewhat unique look and forum format that works really well at least in my opinion.

The title is the most important part, since everyone crafts a detailed title, but not every puts as much detail in the post body. So I made the title stand out, larger, easier to read and should be the first point of focus for your eyes. Next the body, which stands out from the rest using the gradient and shadow, along with the little arrow to direct the flow. Next would either be the author or the product images.
Some of us have some differing opinions regarding poster information first or deal information first; one would like to believe that deals should be judged on their own merit, not biased by whoever is the author. But at the same time, I recognize that the authors deserve recognition because they are contributing to the community, this is why we made it easy to rep a person: hit i bought this, it reps them, large rep and follow buttons, etc.
If you recall when we did the OP (original poster, first post) redesign to its current state (horizontal OP on top etc), people also freaked out.
But in this iteration, we cleaned it up, removed some redundancy (for example the breadcrumbs at the top of the page listed Slickdeals.net Forums > Hot Deals > Deal Title, in small font. Then the deal title woudl be repeated again, also in small font.
We'd waste a lot of space; so actually if you compare the two designs, you see we are actually delivering the content closer to the top of the page in the new design.
See the image below;
But another shorter answer to your question is, we made a gradient from the darker tan to the lighter tan and used almost the same colors. (See how light the background is behind the attachments box?)

Ad Muncher works great but I'm not sure how to actually block an element with it.

|bryantq||Moved this thread to Site issues and suggestions forum now that we're done getting beta testers.|

|Samwise Gamgee||The ads at the top of Slickdeals, that I see from Newegg, Amazon, etc. seems to be more relevant, to what I have been recently researching or looking at in SD.|

|craziplaya21||That is a lot of scrolling just to get to post #2 in a thread...|

|xplosion79||The images on the right make me feel like they are the "sponsored links" like we have in google and always ignored.|

I clicked the beta version, and it seemed to move twice as slow as the current version. What gives?
On a separate note, I hate targeted advertising. Everyone is doing it, and it makes you want to avoid the sites altogether. What is even more annoying is making a purchase online, then seeing the targeted advertising for the next 2 months. Clearing browser data (disc clean up, CCleaner, delete cookies) doesn't help. I understand everyone needs to make a buck, but I honestly don't post as many deals here because of this.

|poconoman||Awful. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just leave things alone. It works and I'm happy the old way.|

I just deleted a category from a Community Deal Detail section by accident. Maybe you should add a pop-up screen to confirm deletions or edits. Or a revisions section like the wiki so you can figure out what you accidentally deleted.
Might have been stupid on my part - I thought it was an expand/collapse button. Then again, maybe not, because that's what a minus (and plus) button could also mean.
