I have just submitted a deal listing:
Prior to this listing (today) each similar listing I have submitted has asked me to confirm the respective merchant ("PlayStation PSN"; wording courtesy of whoever created it initially).
However, today I was not prompted for the merchant & consequently the "MORE" details linking to existing deals for this merchant were not shown below the deal description upon listing the deal:
MORE [ http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hot-playstation-psn
However, a few minutes later, the submitted “Deal Link” must have been automatically parsed & the (correct) merchant was displayed.
Is this time delay (now) by design or is this a “feature”?
I also manually returned to the deal by way of the “edit” link to update the “Availability” to “Online” (from “Both”). You have text below the “Deal URL” field during the “submit!” process that reads “Not an online deal? Click here to submit a deal for an offline store.”, however, just because a deal is “online” it does not make it “both”.
In Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.x, when the “Click here” link is used the resultant text “Found an online deal? Click here to submit a deal for an online store.” is hidden. Not all the text is shown; imagine the text split into three horizontally with the top & bottom sections blanked out. Just the middle of the text is readable.
Additionally, the text below “Title:” is also displayed in this manner in Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.x. Only the centre division of “Remember to include the price and merchant name” is readable.
In case this has not been raised for a while, when revisiting the deal form, the “Link to Image File:” field is blank (& has been this way for a number of months) but when [Save changes] is used the previously specified image within the deal thread remains as before.
Finally, now I have visited the deal information by way of the “edit” link twice the “End Date (dd/mm/yyyy)” has been changed (automatically) from my setting of “31/03/2011” to “02/04/2011” (two days hence from my original setting; one for each time “edit” has been used). I did not use [Save changes] on the second instance & upon returning a third time the date is (still) set to “02/04/2011”. This issue was mentioned recently in another Feedback thread.
