Every now and then some of us like to post a good deal we see on something of interest. Sales, clearances, etc. I'm not sure how many people care to see these posts scattered all over the various forums. Would it make sense to create a forum just for posts like this?

Sounds like a good idea...

The problem I see with something like that is it could turn into a spammers paradise real quick, or someone plugging their buddies stuff.

When there is a post in the proper forum, say someone posting about a tent that is on sale in the shelter sub forum, then someone searching that sub forum is likely to see it.

Now if that was posted in a "deal spotting" forum they might not have seen it at all.

Unfortunately Skab is right, it would turn into a spam-fest in 24 hours. The advantage though would be that you could find the best deals on Nike shoes, iPhones, Viagra, and Nikon cameras all in the same place!

Well just to let ya know I am not a Spammer but noticed the topic. I found a great deal on fatwood today. 50% off my favorite price. I found it at Bed Bath and Beyond kinda strange but a nice find. The larger pack ened up costing $2.00 and the smaller ones $.50 which will fit nicely in my pack. Hopefuly this will help someone out. CP

.... and you'll be lucky if you're not offered Viagra and breast enhancement techniques at the same time, like I get in my e-mail box. Is there something about me and you're all afraid to tell me? :D

I see the whole posting deals thing as a loop hole tolerated by the staff to help out the members. The sight has specific vendor rules that apply to people who want to sell goods here. I go as far as to not post anything up that i haven't already given away to a member here.
