    You can count me out! I refuse to go shopping that day, and if I can I make every effort not to leave the house. People go nuts, get into fistfights over Elmo dolls and Nintendo Wii, and just are generally intolerable. Besides all those "Black Friday Deals" are just a joke usually. Every store tries to advertise some door-buster deal, when in fact they only 10-20 in stock, so by the time you get there (even during opening) 99% of the time they are already long-gone, and you cannot get them online 99.9% of the time.

    This is partially why I try and do all my gift shopping ahead of time or online.

    My guess is that we are going to see a lot of deals posted that day or the day before, that are out of stock within a matter of minutes or even before they get released from moderation.

    So in short, sorry, but not with you on that one.

      I'm guessing that we are going to see the same "quick sell-out" scenario on a lot of items. I'm probably not going to bother posting or voting those 1-3 days to be honest, as it will probably be largely futile. But maybe not, and maybe I will participate, we will see I suppose.

    Seriously though, whats with all the caps, is your caps lock key stuck? Online with blogging thats the equivalent of yelling all the time. Really, just curious.

    We have added a category for seasonal deals (it is a drop-down list on the "Details" screen during deal submission). Black Friday is in the list. Please use it appropriately. It will help to sort out deals as we add more navigation options in the future.

    It is also quite possible that in the future we will run separate contests for each of these seasonal categories. I am discussing the possibility of doing so with Mike and will post updates here if I have anything.

      I would make a suggestion but I have to ravage Yan and Mike's pockets first. Wink
