New Latest Deals updates

The new Latest Deals engine is now live!

 This means Latest Deals runs faster, copes better with a heavy influx of traffic (I’m looking at you, glitches!) and will (hopefully!) keep the ship sailing smoothly at the Latest Deals community continues to grow 🚒

Oh, and search should be chucking out some better, more relevant results too! πŸŽ‰

A special thank you to everyone that volunteered as a tester πŸ™‚

  • Clearer messages: If a post is removed from the LD you should now get a much clearer message explaining why and how to improve future posts.
  • Second chances: If a post is put into moderation for missing a key bit of information you now have the opportunity to edit and update your post so that it can go live on the site (and you can claim back your points!)
  • Transparency: You can now see your own posts, even if they’re in moderation. We hope this helps people understand why a moderation decision was made but equally gives members the information they need to query or appeal a decision in case we get it wrong!
  • Room to grow: We can now easily add in new moderation messages and information (before it was a bit of a nightmare πŸ™ˆ)

We’ve updated the Latest Deals app:

  • We’ve added Aldi to the Supermarket Price Comparison tool
  • You can now customise the Supermarket Price Comparison tool and choose which supermarkets you want to compare
  • The updated app supports an improved experience if one of your posts goes into review.
  • A bucket full of bug fixes and performance improvements.

Image

The Black Friday app has had some love too:

  • Everything we learnt from updating and improving the Latest Deals app has been lovingly poured into the Black Friday app. That means loads of performance improvements and bug fixes to make sure your Black Friday deal hunting is a success!

Both app updates should be available from your phone’s App Store shortly.

Thanks for checking in with this update. Lots more exciting updates to come! πŸ€“

Will this help to identify (to the site administrators ) the many multis masquerading on the site (obvious to most regular users ) posting their 3 "non deals" and 3 vouchers a day ?

I've deleted my previous praise. This should work but it isnt. I've got two posts sitting in no man's land. One pulled because it doesnt link to entry page(despite another member having several from the same site also without link to entry page - although their posts have gone untouched) it is not possible to enter without logging in. I've put that on for moderator to explain, its still sitting there. Is there some way to add a dialogue between poster and moderator ?

There is still a discrepancy between application of rules. There is also a noted disregard on one particular rule. I won't go into that here. I thought this would improve things but its not off to a promising start.

Ooh a Black Friday app! Can't wait to have a look at that - I've been buying early this year but I might just find myself a treat for being so well organised 😁😁
