    Who wants to help with this new forum:)? Already add several threads from other areas that fit what we are looking for in this forum.

    We need members to help find deals etc. and could use a mod as well.

    hm I'm interested in the section but lions and ogre probably look at steam sales and such more often than any other =p.

    I just want the feed rather than providing it though. Hm.

    idk heres a few sites ive seen that discount on games.

    steam (obv)
    gamestop/ebgames
    ebay
    Best Buy
    Kmart
    Toys R Us
    amazon


    cheap (arse) gamer also has quite the feed of free games and I use that often.

    It can be any sale and the more the merrier. The only thing we want to avoid is affiliate sales. This should be for fun and to help other members:).

    I would not make a new post for every "sale" from amazon. About 99% of the products being sold on Amazon have a "sale" price. This just leads to spam and not really good deals. If you find some REALLY good deals on Amazon then please post them all in the SAME post daily instead of creating a new thread for each one.

    You can call the post Daily Amazon Deals I have found or something and put all the links into one post, that way people can who are interested in Amazon deals can browse the specific topic and not be spammed out on the entire Category.

    The same could be done for GamersGate as well.

    We need a rule on the percentage of deals that should be posted. This Budget Gaming forum is not about simply saving a few pennies. It should be about saving other games lots of money:). Therefore, do not post any deal less than 33% off unless it is for a game that is already played often here. Also, avoid posting new threads with just links in them. Cat is right about that looking like spam. If you want to post a new thread about a big deal, at least discuss why it is special:).

    Honestly, I've never even heard of most of the games that are on sale.

    Though, I was never really on top of creating tons of these threads like dmt has.

    Maybe we should only boast popular games here instead of just the random looky-loo game. Unless it is like 70%+ off then it might be worth spending $2-10 on to check it out.

    The ones that are that high would definitely deserve special attention:). 33% is a good start to avoid posting little deals that are 5% off etc. Low percentage deals are too numerous and not really worth mentioning.
