I PMED a mod and he told me to post here....

1. Site should have seprate boards on new deals happening...allow them to be double threads that are also linked intot he targeted site. Say you found a great offer from hertz rental car..this should be posted in Hertz, the geographic location the deal is offered, and on a thread this talks about hot deals.

2. Site should have a hot deals thread that talks of recent offers or promos that just came out...whether its a hotel, airline sale, $5 car rental promo..post it in one place for a few days...then after that time delete it or move it. Its easier to look at one site for stuff like this than have to look at 30+ boards for such deals. If there already is a page for this then its not obvious to me.

You may want to look at the sticky thread that lists criteria for new fora. As well, remember FlyerTalk prohibits cross-posting.

Seems like a lot more work for the moderators. If someone wants to know about Hertz deals, it's easy to subscribe to that forum using the "My FlyerTalk" module and check every day. If you want to know about a Hyatt deal, subscribe to the Hyatt forum. I can't see the value in scattering those deals over multiple forums. The only forums we have particularly targeted to deals right now are "Mileage Run" and "Hotel Deals" which contain bargain airfares and hotel rates, and for the most part those deals don't appear on the airline and hotel forums. You want to add "Car Rental Deals"? What else?
