Hey guys,

We are completely re-vamping the Forum design on Desktop and M-site after around 5 to 6 years… Its one of the major change which will get rolled out to you in next couple of hours…

Why such a big change suddenly?

To be very frank, its not a sudden change and we have ourselves used the new layout/design for past 1.5 months before rolling out to all… And yes we have been contemplating such a change from a long time…

The forum page in its current form was very unhelpful for New Dimers or new visitors to the website… With around 8-9 sticky, the sub-forums etc.. all the real deals were very much down and was lot of inconvenience for New Dimers to figure out the deals.

Also many never figured out how to see Latest deals in forums etc.. So we are hoping the new design will solve some of the pressing UX problems.

Why no votes? Why only hotness?

Over the last one year, we have worked a lot on Hotness algorithm and we will continue to evolve it to push better and better deals up the chain irrespective of simply “votes”

In current Forum page, 5 green smileys would show up even for deal having 40 votes vs one having 6 votes… It was never intuitive enough to understand the hotness of the deal..

With hotness, we are trying our best to automatically show the best deals on very top and Hotness currently is not depndent on what your “best friend” in the community thinks.. it considers clicks, views and much more…

While moving away from smileys may feel a bit odd, you will strongly feel the difference after few days or a week.

(Don’t forget to Try out HOT, NEW tabs in the latest design)

Easier switching of Forums

We understand many users would like to switch between forums and we have tried it to make it as much easier as we can.

Improved Search

If you are searching for deals, you wont find discussion clutter when looking for deals.

Choose your layout and it applies site-wide

If you prefer to see deals in a Grid format, simply select that layout and same layout will apply in Home page, Forum page, Search page etc..

If you prefer a less image heavy Text layout, We have got you covered too.

Hope you guys enjoy the change… While it may become slightly difficult initially (specially for hard core users out there), We can assure you that you will appreciate the change as time passes by

As always feel free to share your comments and we are keeping a close eye at your feedback as well as Data which we gather.

Cheers!

Just as before.. They still need to provide a reason for Voting something down…

Also , just one Vote down will not make it Red like before.. Rather hotness will automatically adjust to show reality, if deal is good smile

I just used the search bro, but the thing is it has become too specific, it is not even showing 2 months old deals
Just searched BUSUPI, it should have shown two results, but shown only the latest one
Please check if something could be done with this algorithm , as using the advance search again and again is difficult

Suggestion, make the hot deals page auto updating, like live cricket scores, would save time in reloading again and again sunglasses
Create an option of this for internet conscious people
