Expiration on Forum Posts for Deals

Not sure what Forum system you have, and what the capabilities are, but is it possible to flag certain posts for expiry? That would allow users to post to the Deals board only for how long the deal is available, thus keeping the thread clean of only currently applicable deals.
Yup.

Deals are usually limited so the faster you check them the better your chances are. I will try to be more diligent in finding out and posting the time frame of the deals.. Maybe I should add a note to the first post and list what time frames the usual's time limit. Meaning anything from Best Buy is 95% 24 hours deal from midnight to midnight in store or online. The only problem I have is that I'm on the west coast so everyone losses some time, if say you or anyone would like to post as soon as you spot these deals that would be great. I check and post my deals as I'm headed into work or at work (don't tell my boss please!)

Yeah, no need to have post disappear. If you want to keep on top of the deals here, you should subscribe to the thread and have it notify you via email. Easy fix.
Yes, I could do that, but I don't want all of the messages come to my inbox. When it comes time for me to purchase a game, if I don't have one I'm directly interested in purchasing, I would like to review the deals.

I was just thinking that it would keep it cleaner on the forums. Maybe if I modified the request, so that there is a new page of "Deals" that list the currently existing deals, curated from the Forums? That might be a bit much manual work...
Yup.
Well I don't have any emails sent to me about anything new in the forums, I just use the little notifications up in the right hand corner of every page, it shows right next your avatar if you have any new pm or any new forum post.

Besides if we start deleting post it would effect post count for peoples badges.
