In light of most peoples poverty at the moment, is there any chance we could have a place where we could post best buys, bargains that were found, stuff like that?

I know theres one on boards.ie, but these forums are way better, nicer people, etc etc :D

Site is too good, am developing an addiction. Maybe there should be a 'Dealing with your AAM Addiction' forum.

Could work , but would need the frequent poster requirement to keep the shills out.

Well for anyone interested in an Iphone related bargain I bought 2 iphone Lansing speakers from the Apple website for 200 euro each as Christmas presents. Was queueing in HMV today and I spotted them on special offer for 159.99. I'm snapping now! Too late to send back in time for Christmas.

Love the idea but I think as well as the frequent poster requirement there would have to be a posting guideline where the subject line includes the item on offer and the area the offer was seen.

I disagree. Quite a few of the many forums on boards.ie are fine. And adverts.ie is also pretty good. I am pretty sure that I myself am not a "Bebo head" by the way.

I was reading a thread this morning on boards.ie where the poster wanted to know if his employer not paying a bonus (that wasn't in his contract) was illegal.

And I didn't say / mean everyone was a bebo head, but there is a disproportionate number of them on it.

OK, I have set up this forum as an experiment. I would be surprised if it works though.

It has to be limited to Frequent Posters, so it limits the traffic considerably.

What is our policy towards Registered Users posting bargains in other forums? Do we delete them?

What is the policy towards people with vested interests? - even if what they are touting is a genuine bargain with better value than the competition?
