    Forum Tab:

    To make the transition as smooth as possible we decided to keep the ‘old format’ for those Buckscoopers that love their forum.
    Here you will find all the old links including the ‘Off tangent’ and ‘Comments and Site Tips’ section.
    op’ t
    Here is our ‘Questions on the new Buckscoop' thread. Post any comments or queries you have in there. We will have another round of updates so if you have any suggestions let us know about them.
    And of course .. if you find anything odd or buggy then please pop in a post so that we can get it fixed for you ASAP

    Cashback Tab:

    Here you will find ALL your cashback merchants listed on Buckscoop.
    Click on the tab to search the merchants using the menu on the left hand side or using these tabs:
  • nod2009/01/15 07:36:54
    Deals Tab:

    We have put together a new and improved filtering system for your deals.
    When you click on this tab you will see all the latest deals that have been posted to the forum. The deals appear in chronological order.
    You can then you the filter the deals if you have something more specific in mind

    Using the search toolbar:

    You can search out all the deals recently voted ‘hot’ by your fellow Buckscoopers or the deals voted hottest of all time.




    You can search out deals that appear online or offline … or both




    You can search out active or expired deals

    You can search all the deals for one particular merchant

    Or you can search with combinations of all of the above
  • nod2009/01/15 07:40:52
    Vouchers Tab:

    The same link as we had in the older version of Buckscoop with a more open format.
    You can use the filter system detailed above in the ‘Deals Tab’ to filter your vouchers.


    Contests and Freebies Tab:

    As with the Vouchers Tab we have a more open format for these posts. The filter system once again allows you to narrow down your search if need be.


    Share your Deals

    Using the Share button allows you to post your fav deals direct to your Facebook, Twitter or Netvibes page. You can also chose to send your deal over to Del.icio.us, Digg, Stumbleupon or Technorati.



    Spread the word when you find a good deal

    You can also continue to use the 'email deal' link which allows you to quickly email your friends :)

    The top of the screen doesn't display very nicely in Firefox. Looks fine in IE though :(

    Edit: Hmm... odd, I clicked on the Deals link and it looks fine now. Must have been a glitch loading the page, although I had hit refresh to reload it. Doesn't matter. Looks great now.
  • lilpretzel2009/01/15 09:54:34
    Same here hellwolf, a quick refresh when I first came on fixed the problem ;)
  • nod2009/01/15 10:11:34
    yeah the cache for some of the browsers will get a bit mixed up
  • jdstacey2009/01/15 18:00:51
    I love the new look! Thumbs up from me! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Firstly, thanks for the effort in making buckscopp more user friendly!

    I'm not sure if I just cant find the function, but we used to be able to see all deals by clicking on "click here to see all unrated deals", under the deals tab.

    I've found some deals that used to be in the section described above to now be in the 'vouchers' section (e.g. delas posted by fairybelle above, which is probably why she couldn't find it). Clicking on "click here to see all unrated deals" does not consolidate all deals/vouchers.

    If the function is already there, pls teach me how to use it. Else, it would certainly be most useful to have an area where we can view a consolidated list of all deals/vouchers :)

    Thanks!

    Sorry for the slowness on my part (it is morning lol) but do you want a section that shows all Deals and Vouchers in the same list? For example you want to buy from DEALS DIRECT so you want to type that in and both Deals and Vouchers for that store show up? Instead of now going to Deals clicking DD, checking out the deals then heading over to the Voucher tab and having to check these for DD vouchers?

    Fairybelle's posts are found only in the Voucher section as they have been added as a Voucher not a Deal. They have a code that needs to be used so these sorts of deals are all stored in the one Voucher section. They have always been this way but seem's the 'unrated deals' helped finding these less confusing.

    Hi Snufle :)

    At the moment we have separated the deals and vouchers out into two separate pages to make your search a bit easier
    You can of course use the forum to find all of today's posts using the 'Quick Links' feature
    http://buckscooper.googlepages.com/Picture15.png

    We are also looking to tweek the RSS feed to make this more user friendly :)
  • golfwidow2009/01/17 17:16:54
    I personally have found it a lot easier to check now before I post a deal. I used to just type the name in the top search box but it wouldn't always show all the deals or none if I had spelt wrong. Now I just go to Deals/Vouchers and look up merchant and filter to get what has been posted for them. A lot simpler and less chance of duplicates :)
  • snufle2009/01/17 20:51:01
    Hi golfwindow,

    Yup, "They have always been this way but seem's the 'unrated deals' helped finding these less confusing" <- that was what I was referring to - somewhere where they were consolidated :)

    Hi Nod,

    Thanks for the tip!

    I think it is fantastic too :D

    Much easier to navigate now as everything on the menu looks so much clearer! :)

    When I go to the deals page now and click "click here to see all unrated deals" the unrated deals still don't show up. I have to come to the hot deals forum to see them all now.

    mmmm there have been a few oddities that have popped up on different ISP's
    I will look into it :)
  • golfwidow2009/01/20 10:01:37
    Ok I may be a bit slow here but what is an unrated deal?
  • nod2009/01/20 10:11:50
    It basically means all deals - those that have not been made 'hot'
  • golfwidow2009/01/20 10:32:19

    Cool, cool. This is the sort of idea I had :) Thanks Nod :flowers:
  • nod2009/01/20 10:41:29
    :D

    At present the deals vouchers and freebies are still on separate pages
    The RSS feed picks up all deals that have been voted 'hot' by members.
  • nod2009/02/04 21:23:05
    We have a few new additions this week :)

    1. Your RSS feed wil now display ALL new deals and vouchers posted to the forum. So you never need to miss out

    2. We now an improved search capability

    For example you can easily search for the latest offers on laptops or even the wii fit

    Hi LisaMaree,
    this link is working as it it is supposed to be :)
    When you are in the deals tab it will display all unrated deals, when you are in the vouchers tab it will display all unrated vouchers and in the freebies tab it does the same

    If you wish to see a list of ALL the deals posted for the 'today' then you can see this in the forums tab.
    Click on the 'Quick Link' option and chose todays posts
