  • So, it's likely everyone will see this as simply negative and not the constructive criticism it's meant to be, but I'll go ahead and ask it anyway: Isn't it a bad precedent to be setting giving people a link to sale information that takes them away from here? How long before they skip the extra step of coming here and just go straight to Major Nelson's site? I mean, you're already taking a beating from TA's sales posts, why would you do this to yourselves? It seems like you're giving up...
  • @1 I disagree. I only come here for the news/reviews. I only go to TA for the achievement tracking and guides. TA sucks for news. XBA will always have a place for me and I don’t see why posting links to Major Nelson, which they have done as long as I can remember and I probably first started coming on here around 2010 (possibly earlier) detracts from that.
  • @1 Storeparser, which I normally check Monday nights for the sales, hasn't updated in the last couple weeks, and they previously were having legal issues with MS about posting sales. I wonder if it's something similar to that here as well, as far as posting the sales without a link to the source. Normally x360a here posts the sales and the prices right in the article, this was the first one i've seen in a long time that didn't do that. Just a thought, who knows, but I don't think it's laziness, there's likely a reason behind it.
  • @#2 - The link was provided in addition to the sale information, not instead of it, which is what I'm getting at... @#3 - This is the third week in a row it's been simply a link. The last time they listed everything out was August 7, 2018. Initially the links to anything for the XBOX One took you to buy a Surface Pen, but they fixed that. Ultimately XBA was posting links to the source as each link would take you directly to the MS store page, so I don't think they were having issues there. But that's why I asked the questions, I'm hoping there's an explanation. And to be clear: I never said nor am I suggesting anyone is/was being lazy.
  • @4 "It seems like you're giving up" is another way of saying being half assed or acting lazy, at least that's the context I took from it and what I think your meaning was. Regardless, it's a bit of an in-depth analysis for something as simple as a provided link instead of a list. I don't care either way, it's a source to what's on sale, if it's directly posted here or if it's a link to the sales themselves. Not really interested in debating or arguing about it though. I'll still keep coming to this site regardless.
  • @#5 - It's also a way of saying "admitting defeat". Which doesn't really have solid implications of being lazy as you can put in a lot of effort and still decide to give in, but I can see why you might've interpreted it the way you have. And perhaps we're focusing a little too much on the information itself and not that it takes people away from the site if there's only a link. I know the loyals will still come here, I'm referring to new people, ones who'll be more "on the fence" about the site. Ones who'll see the link a few times and then just go to it first cutting out the middle man. Does that make more sense? And does this have to be a debate or an argument? Can't it just be a discussion?
  • I couldn't agree more @1. Ive been hitting this site on Tuesdays for many, many, many, years to see what's on sale. Posting a story saying here's a link to the sales is absolutely a sad thing to see. What's next? In the forums are there going to be links to TA's forums?
