    LOL! Maybe at least a flash card/drive free week now and then, right?

    Perhaps subcategories are in order.

    Maybe at least semi-running list of worthy prices for flash deals might help some. An example would be 4GB flash memory cards, which as of late seem to go for $9-10 on special.

    That way members could look at the list and say to themselves "Well a $11 deal for the card is not that fabulous. I'll just skip it", but when they find the $8 deal they will know to post it quick-like.

    This might help cut down on the number of flash deals we see, and would require no addition of sub-categories or rules on the part of the moderators, and could even be done in the discussion arena before implementing anything more formal site-wise.

    Good or Bad idea, or at least worth a try?

      While you're looking, can you please find your caps lock key and turn caps lock off?

    This idea is starting to look real tempting again.

      I think the problem is that there is a 10 cent price drop, and someone resubmits the deal. I can understand why, it's an easy submission.

      Sometimes I feel like flash deals are "too easy" of a daily win. Everyone just seems to go crazy over them, ever though they seem to be a dime a dozen at this point to me. I'm almost to the point that unless they're literally giving them to you free after rebate, that I almost don't care.

      Exactly! I wonder what would happen if you and I formed an anti-flash deal brigade, one or two more people and it would ensure no more daily wins on flash drives. I'm not talking longterm, but a little protesting for 3-4 days might cut down on them flooding the site every day.

    Mods, would such a movement count as colluding, as no particular member would be targeted, just a particular genre of deals? I'm just so sick of seeing them over and over again.

    Never mind, since there was no response from anyone else, I guess the issue is moot.
