    Ok so this thread will serve as a Deal Filter to sort deals by vendor and % off. I've laid all the ground work already but need your help going forward. I used tags to tag all deal threads by vendor, vender% and %, this provides a nice set of filters to sort deals by. Here are the Filters, see bottom part of post for how to help.

    Sort by % Off:

    33-49%
    50-74%
    75-99%
    Free

    Sort by Vendor/% Off:

    Lists Vendors that have at least one deal posted, not all categories have deals in them, however as deals are added they will automatically appear in the appropriate category.

    If you add a deal for a Vendor not listed please post in this thread so the Vendor can be added.

    Steam

    All Steam Deals
    Steam 33-49%
    Steam 50-74%

    Steam Free

    How to help

    As said this system uses tags to sort the deals, we need your help to make sure they get added. When you make a thread add tags using the following rules:

    Paid Deal Rules

    vendorname - all lowercase, no spaces
    vendorname% - replace % with 33, 50, or 75... 33 = 33-49%, 50 = 50-74%, 75 = 75-99%
    % Tags - Add one of these three depending on % off, 33-49, 50-74, or 75-99

    Free Game Rules

    vendorname - all lowercase, no spaces
    vendornamefree - vendor name + word free, no spaces
    budgetfree - this tag ties all free deals together

    Here are examples

    Say it's a Steam Deal that's 57% off. You'd add these tags:

    steam - because it's a steam deal
    steam50 - because the it's a steam deal and is between 50-74%
    50-74 - because it's between 50-74%, this tag ties all 50-74% threads together.

    ----------------------------------------

    Ok so now it's a GamersGate Deal that's 39%. You'd add these tags:

    gamersgate - because it's a gamersgate deal
    gamersgate33 - because it's a gamersgate deal and it's between 33-49%
    33-49 - because it's between 33-49

    ----------------------------------------

    Ok this time we have 4 GamersGate Deals and one Steam Deal in a thread, one 33, two 54's, a 59 and a 78% Steam deal. You'd add these tags:

    gamersgate - because it's has gamersgate deals
    steam - because it has steam deals
    gamersgate33 - because at least one deal is in 33-49% and it's gamersgate
    gamersgate50 - because at least one deal is in 50-74% and it's gamersgate
    steam75 - because at least one deal is in 75-99% and it's steam
    33-49 - because at least one deal is in 33-49%
    50-74 - etc
    75-99 - etc

    ----------------------------------------

    Last example, Free steam game, you'd add:

    steam - because it's from steam
    steamfree - because it's from steam and it's free
    budgetfree - this ties all free deals together.

    If you have questions feel free to post them or PM me.

    Yes. You still have to follow the rules to posting in the Budget Forum. What Aaddron is posting isnt a rule per say its just a way to sort the deals to make them easier to find by using tags.

    Yea, at least one third is the most helpful. I hate how some sales only take a few percent off lol.
