Egg, mate. Please stop.

Can't you just create one thread and spam that instead?

It's OK Matt. Don't worry. I'm not posting any more deals.

Personally, I like the individual threads. It's simple enough to mark read if you're not interested in them.

Keep up the good work Andrew

Sorry Stuart - can't do it. I am receiving too much abuse.

Looks like your threads from yesterday have also been removed so thanks to whoever is reporting them (no doubt someone who doesn't take the time and effort to post deals) and thanks mod(s) for removing said deals. Anyone who didn't check in yesterday has missed them.

Tune in next week where a guy who finds (and posts) 5 hot deals in a single day will have his account suspended.

Hi Egg. Hope that my request wasn't received as 'abuse' it certainly wasn't meant that way.

My gut says that 8 or 9 threads in less than 24 hours highlighting Ebay listing for a single supplier is most likely spam by the sellers alt. Apologies if this was not the case.

In the past week or two Andrew has posted deals for 365games, boardgamehut, chaos cards, Gameseek and Meeples Corner. I for one appreciate your posts Andrew, as well as the occasional banter that ensues.

Andrew cheers for the effort in posting deals mate. I personally don't care if people post them individually or in one post. I really think people need to get a life if complaining about this other nobody will bother to post deals.

Andrew. Thanks for your efforts in bringing deals to our attention. Personally I would prefer that you combined them in one thread but I don't object to you posting separate threads if that's how you prefer to do it.

I think some of the complainers have been well over the top and it started to look like sharks circling so it is great that you have had support from others today.

The poster defining what is or is not a deal particularly annoyed me. So if a game is not highly rated or is more than a few years old and a retailer drops the price significantly then this is not a deal???? He may not think so but it is to me and I suspect it is for many others.

Please don't stop identifying deals because of a vocal minority and please accept a few geek gold to thank you for your efforts to date.

John

I agree, that in my own personal opinion, if there are many coming from one source, I would say something like 'lots of deals at Steves Collectables' and then list the ones you thought were good, all in one thread. Then leave it up to others to have a little trawl through the rest of the site.

But whichever way you do it, it pretty much doesn't bother me.

Keep on posting!

Keep up the good work Andrew - which ever way things go.

I'm happy with a thread for each game as I can quickly see if I would be interested in a deal or not. Although I can see how this can annoy people if they are subscribed to the Deals forum.

If you have to put a site on when it has multiple deals then do that and keep up the work its helping everyone at the end of the day even if there is a few scrooges.

I also appreciate the deals posts(not sure my bank balance or wife appreciate them as much ), please don't stop !

I'm personally not bothered if they are all in one thread or not, I just use the 'mark read' feature for games I'm not interested in. it only takes a few seconds.

I also appreciate both the effort to post hot deals and the individual threads.

A single thread means I have to read every single new post to the thread just to see if it's another deal being added whilst an individual thread for a deal I'm not interested in can just be marked read without checking the content. Therefore individual threads save me time when checking my subscriptions.

Thanks for your hard work.

Andrew, thanks very much for doing what this forum is for.

I also would much prefer threads for each game, as that way I can know if I want to look for a specific game, rather than "good offers at XXX".

I agree Andrew, I really appreciate your taking the time to post these offers. If the game interests me I take a look and click through, if not I just click read and that's it done. I don't really understand the fuss?

I also far prefer the separate threads. At a quick glance I know everything I want. Thanks for the effort you've put in. I totally understand you giving up given the complaints but it's a real shame.

I commented on one of the other threads. My comment was along the lines that made it seem suspicious that you were posting so many deals from the same vendor. But it seems you have posted from other places too. I checked your profile page before I posted so maybe you should put a little 'bio' on there saying that you love finding and sharing deals and you have no affiliation with any particular shops.

It doesn't bother me if you post individual threads or all in one. I don't subscribe to Hot Deals, I just have it as a 'quicklink' and check it from time to time.

I can see how some people might query whether any of these old games are really 'hot deals' or just 'deals'. After all Steve's Collectibles pretty much constantly has a dozen or more Board Games on sale so it might be more helpful to just list what genuinely looks highly rated and a good price.

Just my 2p really.

He also had Prophecy: Water Realm, the second expansion for £12.57 delivered, but I can't find it now. May have all gone.
