why not just post on the original friend and req a mod to unexpire it?
#2
Some people may delete their subscriptions, indeed if the item is showing as expired most would just pass it by.

I really don't see the harm in this situation. Its not as if its genuine spam.
#3
im not disagreeing.. in fact if your talkin bout the george foreman i certainly apreciated the repost as i got one from it but learnt they dont accept it that way :)
#4
pm a mod to ask if you can put it back up with heading 'back in stock'

its worth a try -

i dont go back 3 weeks to look for deals and by sound of it it was a good one

best of luck

I had the heading as Back In Stock .............,

A mod deleted it and then unexpired the original .......

Seems wholly unnecessary!

It's SPAM, just because people who have their settings to only pick up "New" deals will miss unexpired posts doesn't mean that the forum should have duplicate deals.

Where is the harm in reposting a deal when it becomes unexpired ?

If it expires pretty quickly then obviously fewer people are going to see or pay attention to it. When it comes bacj into stock 2 1/2 weeks later then surely there is a valid reason fro reposting.

Moderating like that is only going to drive genuine members away from HUKD.

There is no "harm" it just leads to more threads than need be.
All you have to do is report an expired thead and it will be unexpired, and is perfectly live for all to see if they so choose.

If they are genuine, then I don't think they will be driven away, unless there is another site that is happy to have deals been reposted several times? :)

Well I like to think that I am very genuine, I also believe that twice in 3 weeks is hardly several times.

I wasn't using you as an example, I didn't see the thread you are talking about.
I am speaking in general terms.

I just don't see why someone would decide to leave HUKD because they are upset that duplicate deals are deleted.

What is wrong with Un-expiring a deal?
#11
Ok maybe I shouldn't be seeing this as a personal slight.

I have benefited in the past from other users reposting deals that were a couple of weeks old.

In this instance I reposted a very good deal for the benefit of other HUKD users, a deal that was actually 2 weeks and 6 days old. At the start of my post I put Back in stock......,

Now if a totally new poster had came along and posted the exact same deal without the "Back in stock" part listed then it wouldn't have been looked at twice, however by taking the time to highlight the fact that it was back in stock and reposting the original "Hot" deal, which takes a few minutes of my precious time- lol, It is then deleted and attributed as spam.

This deal would have been of benefit to browsers of the forum who never spotted it nearly 3 weeks ago.

I could understand a time limit of say a week against reposts, however I think in this instance it was justified, its basically wasted my time and the moderators to the detriment of HUKD members.

Perhaps we should agree to disagree.

I quite often go through the deals I have posted over the last few weeks/months. I check to see if they were any good, and if they were voted cold/hot - and if they were well received I will check to see if it's still available. If it's not, I'll expire my post. It may be a month old and no one will look again but I like to think I do my bit for the site.

If it was good, I might repost just saying still available or now available and PM the mods to unexpire.

I agree that "twice in 3 weeks is hardly several times" but when that happens with lots of deals all over the site it becomes a bigger issue. People don't wish to have to keep skimming through the same deals reposted over again. A new deal with no replies may get people clicking. An old deal with back in stock may prevoke a different responce.

I must admit this next bit is negative, but it does sound to me like you wanted another hot deal - and maybe the rewards that brings. You have made reference to its heat many times in the thread. But I could quite easily be wrong there =)

Don't be too downhearted - but next time (personally) I'd bump up the old thread.
#13
What rewards would posting another hot deal bring me ?

I have only ever posted deals that have been hugely beneficial to other users on the site. I thibk you can see from the number of posts that I have in the time that I have been a member that I choose my remarks and deals carefully. This site is meant for sharing and I do not see what personal gain I would have received from this.

No wonder there are so many lurkers.

Plus if people come on the site to search for something specific, say "George Foreman", the old deal which had been unexpired would appear as one of the results, so there isn't really the need for it to be duplicated in those circumstances, IMO. :)
