I think the time has maybe come initiate a 'Official Sales Alert thread (Discussion)' thread.
I've regularly checked and bookmarked this thread for obvious reasons, though I'm predominantly a lurker so perhaps my opinion is void.
This thread is becoming progressively less useful as a resource of pooled knowledge on current / upcoming sales. There's plenty of threads for discussion & if we need one for discussion of sales, that would be really easy to arrange. I do appreciate the occasional banter and relevant comments, but it really is now to the point that to find 'sales alerts' it involves scrolling through approximately two pages of discussion per 'alert'. As an example, note existential crisis this thread seems to currently be having (and I think I remember this same discussion around the July sales last year).
An 'Official Sales Alert thread (Discussion)' would just separate the discussion (to a place where it can easily continue) and leave the 'alerts' thread for 'alerts'.
Just an idea, maybe you can at least flame me over in the other thread as a start?
