Where is Deal Discussion subforum.

So I'm trying to find this forum on this site, but I can't seem to find it. I'm not talking about "On Going Deal Discussion" subforum. Anyone know how I can access it?

Forum>Deal Discussion?

This is what I mean. amazon-ca-today-only-seagate-expansion- ... st22335719 you see at the top left it say Forum>Deal Discussion>Amazon.ca: Today Only, etc... I accidently stumble upon it while clicking on the deal page at the homepage.

You've discovered our (not-so-secret) secret! The Deal Discussion forum is the backend for comments on deals. For example, this is the deal attached to the thread you mention: http://www.redflagdeals.com/deal/comput ... 0-was-176/

Threads often get created automagically upon first comment of a deal, so not every deal will have a post.

From memory, I think we hide it from display for 2 reasons. 1) It's not particularly useful to most users. The really good deals are already being discussed in Hot Deals anyway, and 2) it just duplicates the content on www.

Yeah I noticed that too. But there's great deal on that forum that I haven't seen before or deal that I miss regardless if duplicates. If you compare the "Hot Deals" forum and "Deal Discussion" they are both two completely different forum, they have their own deals. Nevertheless thanks for clarifying it.

Whenever someone comments on a post from our front page a thread is automatically created in this forum like Tyler said. Checking the front page for deals would be easier than trying to comb through the deal discussion forum since threads there are never expired.
