Olympus E-M5 body only for $600

When we posted the Mirrorless Price Chart at the end of 2014, the price of the Olympus E-M5 body only was $1000. Fast forward to now (*gasp* it’s 2.5 months later, where did all the time go? *gasp*) and the E-M5 body only is down to $600 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 2 per color) and B&H Photo (with 4% reward = $24) and Adorama (with 4% reward = $24) and Best Buy upon eBay and Nuevo Huevo.

One of the reasons the E-M5 is down to $600 is because the new E-M5 II has been revealed with an early-adopter price of $1100 (pre-orders at Amazon et al).

Opinion Poll: Show or Not Show Expired Offers on the Front Page of the blog?

We have another opinion poll for you to opine and feedbackize (verb). Currently all deals remain on the front page of the blog. I move expired offers at the start of each day, so expired offers can cluster together, making it easier to quickly skim and scan. But with WordPress there is more flexibility. So the question is, do you like to see the expired offers on the front page, or only live offers? If you have a more complicated answer, please leave a comment or use the online contract form.

The way to show live offers only is to create a WordPress category or tag, and include/exclude that category/tag from being shown on the front page.

Note that expired offers do not mark themselves expired automatically. I have to manually edit the posts regardless, so even if this is implemented, I would still need to mark them manually to make them disappear from the front page (and edit the category/tag to indicate something is live/dead). So I don’t know if having this feature would create additional confusion than be helpful, since expired offers would be shown under “live offers” until I get around to editing them out. I can’t do the 24×7 non-stop blogging of the old days, so they could stay like that for hours.

A third option would be to show all offers on the frontpage, but have an option in the menus that when you click on, you only see the non-expired offers. Something like a “LIVE DEALS ONLY” button. This would be done the same way as above, with a WordPress category/tag. Since this would be extra work on both me and WordPress, I don’t know if it makes sense logistically to do that if a small/smaller percentage of visitors will utilize it.

So why I am asking this? Some like to see expired offers, to see what was offered and what they missed. Others only want to see live offers. Others want to switch between the two. So I am trying to figure out whether I need to make adjustments or not.
