Some of the comments on these items are really useful, and some are just plain funny. But next week when the same thing comes up for a different deal, it gets a new thread and the previous goodness is still sliding backwards in history.

How about, when a previously-seen item is posted again, the first comment could be from a bot linking to the previous thread (or several, if relevant).

Each repost of an item should have Price Change and Deal History tabs below the comment box, as well as a Price History link right below the product description.

If you click on Deal History you will see past listings and a comment bubble link with the number of comments so you can read past comments. Not ideal but I'm not sure what the ideal would be since it would look cluttered if every deal reposted all past comments.

So why do you do this if the price does not change, it is simply a repost of one from last week?

It gets relisted because that keeps active deals higher up in the queue. The homepage is already very long and existing active deals would get buried under all the new ones.

It also gives editors a chance for review to update anything about the listing while leaving the original alone. Sometimes price, bundled items or the merchant changes but that shouldn't change the original listing so people can go back to it and see what it was.

Both ways of doing it have their down sides but we're always open to suggestions. You might note we have changed the site again today so it's not as though we are resistant to change and yet some people don't want anything to change.
