Tip: Using the EXPIRED button

Admin Avatar

I'm going to do a little series of HUKD tips as not all users know about all the little site functions.

One of the most important things you can do as a member is help keep offers and voucher codes up to date by clicking the EXPIRED button when an offer has ended or when a voucher code no longer works. When you click the button it counts as a vote and when enough members vote EXPIRED then the deal is marked as expired. EXPIRED will then automatically show in its title and it will drop out of the active deals list. Also, if it is a voucher it will no longer appear in the vouchers list.

So as you can see, particularly with vouchers, this is a very important thing! You can find the button on the bottom right side of the deal, along with the Edit button.

And that's the tip for today!

Can I ask something then.
Can we add some functionality into the Forum system that allows the original poster of a Thread to click on Expired and have it automatically go expired, like Mod's do?
If you want me to put this in the Requests Forum Board then I will, but it's something I've been thinking about for a while just never prioritised to type it up.

hmmm not a bad idea X10. The system currently works on reputation though so for example mods only get it marked as expired right away because they have high reps so their vote counts as a lot. So a user with a high rep should be able to bin it right away also. I'm still ironing out the rep situation and we're slowly bringing online additional elements to it.

Yup, I see what you're saying Admin, that's how I thought it worked from what everyone's been saying here.
Some simple code to check if the user setting the expired button is the original poster should be easy enough (I say without ever coding vBulletin/whateber boadring code we use).
I just think it would be really useful as there have been a number of times one of my deals has gone expired but I've not been able to set it so myself.

That is a very good idea, would be great if admin could implement it. Good thinking X10. :)

The only problem I see with this is there have been a lot of scammers/spammers lately, what if they take umberance at their scam post being removed and start 'expiring' deals and vouchers?
Can you make it so you need a minimum of say 20 posts before you can expire a deal/voucher?

Spammers are immediately banned so there's no chance of them expiring a deal...

Nice one :thumbsup:

Could they re-join using another email address?
#10
They could, but they still wouldn't have time to accumulate any power to expire a deal before they're banned again...

OK, Thanks :-D

Yay! thanks for the info Admin. I hadn't realised that was how it worked before and I just edited the deal's title by adding EXPIRED to it, which resulted in a doubly EXPIRED post (hehe, sorry about that emma ;)).

I welcome more tips as I'm rather forum ignorant! Keep em comin!:thumbsup:

Just thought I'd bump this up as it's quite an important part of the site. :-D It's important that users click the expired button when necessary, especially where expired vouchers are concerned, as it helps to keep the forums clean and tidy. It'll also keep expired vouchers out of the list too, and with the stress of Christmas shopping being high enough for us all, mainly the blokes, we can do without the stress of spending hours trying to get an expired code to work.

:giggle:
#14
well!..I didn't know that lol...I trailed through loads of verdbaudet vouchers today and alot had expired....so will remember this tip :)
#15
didn't know this but ...

the current Fuji s5600 at Argos thread is showing as expired and it isn't - perhaps the mods can correct it? It seems the deal is on/off every couple of days so its obviously confusing for everyone.
