Welcome to The Forklift Forums
Hi Forkers!

I wanted to give you guys a place to post deals and chat in a more permanent setting than Forkchat.  I'm not sure if it'll take off or not, but I figured I'd give it a shot.

Let me know what you think.

This site is a great idea. How long has it been around?

Thanks!

I developed "version 1" of the forklift as an experiment/to learn a new framework in November 2013.  It was pretty simple and you probably wouldn't recognize it, looking at the site now.  I should dig out the old code and take a screenshot.  Basically, an item stream with three buttons (good deals, great deals, HOT deals) which controlled what you saw.

This is what I consider version 3.  There was an orange version in between but I don't remember what it looked like anymore.  :)

Here's an example of what the original forklift looked like (this is after adding some filters and stuff to it... it was really sparse when I launched):



And here's an example of version 2:

Love this site, i joined last month. I've got some nice bargains (In the UK). Most of the times i miss out though , especially when the item is more expensive, like I have One click set up but I sometimes get annoying messages when I click it, like (You cant use the back button on your browser) or sometimes it asks me to confirm the purchase etc. Cost me quite a few nice items!
If anyone knows what i'm doing wrong would you please pleas please PM me lol
Thanks again for this site, it's saved me a few quid so far!!! :) :) :x

It became too expensive/time consuming to maintain :(
