would you use a forum?

I’m thinking of installing a message board/forum here for discussion of coupon codes, deals, shopping, etc.

Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section! I think a forum would be useful here, do you?

    I love the site but I am no fan of forums. When too much of the discourse moves to forums readers like me who scan through via readers lose a lot of what we like about the sites.

    I’ll strongly second Mimi’s comment. It’s a whole lot harder for me to keep track of a site’s content when it’s in a forum. I love my google reader but it does not play well with forums!

    I think a forum linked to the site would be a great idea. I use your site often to find coupon codes or special deals. But I am also an avid online shopper. Which basically means I do A LOT of research before I buy. I often times find deals I’d love to share with others (like the foley&corinna mid city tote I scored for $162 after using a grechencode or the tucker blouse I found for $59 just not in my size) OR need help deciding if I should make the plunge (obscure boutique or unfamiliar with sizing/color/fit issues). I figure the more information from fellow fashion lovers the better!
