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

Moved this thread to Site issues and suggestions forum now that we're done getting beta testers.
The personal views and opinions expressed in this post are exactly that and do not necessarily represent an official opinion or stance of Slickdeals and this is a disclaimer in case I say something stupid. In fact, anything I say should not be taken seriously.
Both AdBlock and Element Hiding Helper exist for Chrome too.
Thanks, but I was looking for something that would work with Avant browser. I installed Chrome but it drove me crazy because the hot keys would mess with my word processor. I suppose I'll have to spend more time figuring out how to turn off the hot key function in Chrome.
Ad Muncher works great but I'm not sure how to actually block an element with it.
Some days you are the windshield, some days the bug.
Why is the first post on a thread a slight different colour buddy??
I asked this before but you didnt reply about it and im just curious.. (Its not a bad thing im just wondering)
The first post is important so we want it to stand out; Some things were more important to us than others:
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?)
it's showing me stuff others had bought or looked with prices. It's in the way. looks bad.
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.
