OzBargain Zeitgeist 2017 : Top Stores, Deals and Comments

neil on 02/08/2018 at 3:48 pm, filed under OzBargain, Stats

2017’s biggest mover was Gearbest, moving up 54 places to the #1 spot in terms of both popular deals and the amount of deals. It’s not just OzBargain but around the world other bargain sites are also filled with Gearbest deals in a play to dominate the global small electronics/gadget market. Their competitors, BanggoodZapals and Lightinthebox moved up to the 12th, 14th and 21st spot respectively with the most amount of front page deals.

Overall, eBay deals were very popular including the most popular deal of 2017, 18% off sitewide. While Dominos fell 11 spots in popularity, the store page saw 1.7m pageviews; more than double that of the 2nd most viewed store, eBay.

Another big mover statswise, was the amount of competitions posted, going from 4800 in 2016 to 10435 while wins only increased marginally.

The most popular forum post for 2017 was the 7/11 Fuel Watch thread which continues to be a great resource to find the locations around the country with the cheapest fuel in order to get the 7/11 app to match the price. Still popular despite being 5 years old is the thread about how to get out of your first speeding ticket in Victoria (can confirm it works!).

Users & Comments

2011-2017 Comments

2017 vs. 2016: Published: 1,139,275  Green_Arrow_Up.svg15% | Removed: 14,810 1.3%  (2016: 1.21%)

In our continuing mission to promote transparency and respectful discussion in comments, we try to provide some stats on moderation. Our comment removal rate remains roughly the same at around 1%.  Last year we made it a goal to make OzBargain more respectful while maintaining a friendly community.  We’ve been more responsive to inappropriate comments and trolling through better comment logging and moderation action guidelines . While we give numerous warnings to users for these comments, we’ve established new guidelines (as of January 2018) for inappropriate comments to now garner bans.

The uptick in referral link removals was partly skewed in terms of this Optus Friends & Family deal which required employees to post their referral links. Again, the biggest category of removals are requests by the commenter to remove their own comments (23.8%) and removing comments attached to the original deleted comment (34.7%).

Reasons:

  • Replying to Deleted Comment – 5148  (2016: 4290)
  • Requested by Commenter – 3533 (2016: 2635)
  • Personal attack 534 (2015: 515)
  • Inappropriate use of negative vote 494 (2016: 496)
  • Duplicate – 491 (2016: 469)

    Made the list for most comments, won’t be long until I become Scotty’s personal assistant with my own Lenovo laptop.

    Just want to take this opportunity to thank all the mods for believing in me.
