Bit stupid as it is still classed as a duplicate!
well they r 2 deals on the hot page i had already added the links to the woolworths thread
Oh i see i thought you were asking cuz you wanted to do it! I reakon they SHOULD be classed as duplicates!
It seems to depend on where they appeared in the other thread - from what I can tell, threads tend to be considered duplicates if they appear in the OP of another general deal post with other items, or the first 4 or 5 of the replies in that thread. I think it's one thing if someone just mentions another product in passing, but if someone is going to the trouble of posting links/images then it's a bit off to just post your own deal on the back of it (especially when people don't credit where they've got it from).

I don't think it's realistic to expect people to notice something which is in the 43rd post in a thread or something, but when it's right there at the top in the first few, I think it's reasonable to consider it a duplicate - it's not that hard for people to find. There's a mix of people who take the time to actually read a thread, and people who just want everything in their face and spelled out for them because they don't want to spend time browsing, so you'll never please everyone.

That's my two 'cents'.
Yes agree with the fact that if it's a few pages down the line then it won't be read/seen by many! So maybe then it is ok to do so!!
both links r on page 3 of the thread

That's probably a bit far in to be considered duplicates, unfortunately. I understand the frustration though. I think most of the time people don't even look past what's on page one of the 'hot' tab before deciding it hasn't been posted already... :lol:
its considered a duplicate as they have been removed

Interesting! Have to remember this one for future 'discussion'. :w00t:
