Q: Dealsplus Rollback

Hi everyone!

If you haven’t noticed, we’re feeling a little retro today (no it’s not “Throwback Tuesday”). We’re actually temporarily rolling back some old features for testing. You’ll notice the older logo, search bar, and of course, “Ask & Share” among other older features and designs.

We don’t know how long it will last, but just wanted to give you all a heads up!

Apart from deals, this site was also a social network site among the users. The MM process was easily understandable. The ask and share button was like a park, where everyone can meet and share their feelings. Instead of keeping it temporarily, in my opinion we should bring back the features that was couple of months ago. But now everyone is lost.

Well, there are few changes which are good but i believe most of us miss the old way of running dealpl.us.

Lets see how it goes. Keep rolling rolling rolling.....

I'm with you, praveensapkota! I hope they'll keep the Ask & Share section of the site. Made a lot of friends here and since it was removed I feel like I lost touch with all of them. I love this section! The first thing I did every morning when I got up was check out Ask & Share!

I agree, the ask & share has a place. It's nice to converse with others.

YES! I'm happy to see the “Ask & Share” back...(now if I can only remember what I needed to ask;)) Seriously the community helped me solve some computer issues a while back...always thankful for tips.

I hope you find the best combination of old and new features(don't like constant changing). With the lack of comments, and ask and share, it's was getting to look a little like a ghost town around here. Maybe you could give rep points for making [useful] comments, to encourage more commenting? Maybe you could take a vote on all the different features, for input from us?

I missed ask and share a lot, and have really hated all the constant changes around here, hope it calms down soon, it's hard for an old mind like mine to keep up! lol

Please keep Ask & Share. I greatly miss the social aspect of deaslplus. I can understand how negativity can get out of hand but it can also be ignored with little cost to anyone.

Bring back the $$ for making comments, I agree about the amount of deals 1 can post, that had to be done, since we know the only people getting reps were the 1's that really screwed up the MM program to begin with. If u keep the comments to 15 per day, then u will get your people back to the site or just fade off in the sunset.

I agree with Eric. I really did feel that a sense of community was lost without ask and share.

Was this also when they took down the lists? All these changes are confusing me. I wish they would send out emails when they do that.

The reply box in the comments sections are especially tiny. Would love to see a bigger/longer box, to be able to read/edit longer comments much easier. Thanks

Deals wrote to me today. So much is happening good! :) The best features, loved ones, are staying and the new ones that everyone seemed to really enjoy are also coming back! So, keep your head up. I think the site is very user friendly, though, you just have to get used to it. That's all. It's different, so a different style is automatically assumed.

@ashtrie, they sent inbox messages on here in our personal inboxes. They didn't say too much. But, it is understandable now :)

I think that the newer search box was better than this current one. You didn't have to click on coupons or deals, all the options would open up below. Anything you guys could do to make searching/navigating the site[with the least amount of clicking needed] helps a lot!
