goonertillidie, it takes 2/3 members to expire a deal thread now as the number of threads incorrectly expired had increased significantly, but if you do want a thread expired immediately just report the thread with your request and we'll action for you, thanks (and your thread has been expired now) :)

Sigma how does this effect FS/FT threads as you no longer lock for us and I don't use Fo.lk and I don't see why I should have to use it to lock my threads on this website.

Hi, expiring a thread in fs/t prevents the thread from being closed in Fo.lk and also still permits further offers to be posted in the thread resulting in unnecessary thread bumps which is unfair on other listings. Members should close all their active trade threads at the appropriate time as per forum rules. By using the trade forum you also agreed to abide by these rules, including the methods of closure. The relist rule applies to the date of the last post in a closed thread, not an expired one, so it is obviously important that threads are closed correctly.

Some members may have issues with the close thread link in fo.lk - if you find this is the case then please report the relevant trade thread via the report link on the relevant FS/T thread and one of the online MODs will close and expire for you. Thanks again.

I never use folk as far easier to pm a mod to close mine. Dont even know the folk url lol
[mod]#14
Some members have genuine issues and are unable to close via fo.lk and when we receive a close report we will lock and expire the linked thread with no MOD comment so its not bumped and the relist rule applies to the last post in the thread prior to the lock.

This is a good idea with expiring now, wondered why it hasn't been instant. It is far too easy especially on the Iphone to expire threads.

At least with deals you can get other people to expire, or spam by commenting.

It's getting on my nerves now,i've been on numerous threads where a few people have expired and it's still showing,it's very disappointing also to think something is available and it's not!!

It seems to take more than 2/3 members to expire something.

I know, I was practically begging people to hit expire in a deals thread the other day because it had expired. Everyone was still trying to use code and kicking off because it was still "live". Me and Charlie S did not have the power between us and in the end I reported it but it took ages to expire.

Wish you'd up the Spam amount to about 10 as well.

Maybe we should have an "Expire this thread" thread in feedback - members can post the thread they want expiring and other members or mods could expire........then again we tried it before and it never really caught on.....

can i ask for help from some of you to check this thread out thread please.

it's a valid link which works elsewhere (a photography website) which is why i submitted it. but it simply won't work from HUKD website. maybe there's a filter they used.

i've clicked on Expire, Spam/Report even though the link doesnt work i found the link works elsewhere. i've also Contacted Mod but it's now 40+ minutes.

in the meantime people still voting and i think i'm going to rethink about posting any more freebies. just gets annoying now.

HELP! please. i'm not sure what to do lol.

Hmmm although I think it's a good idea not to have instant expire, so maybe 2 people to expire to allow for glitches and phone browsing etc.......it seems to have been set really high.

Much more than 2 or 3 people it seems a bit excessive as deals aren't expireing at all now!

I agree 2 (maybe3) to expire would be better - we're chasing too many OOS deals now. Time for a re-think!!

yep, I used to be quite good at expiring expired deals but now I just cant be bothered after expiring about 10-15 deals over the last couple of days and all still showing as available. A real backward step imo.

I agree with the SPAM count increase but not expired as easy to unexpire if someone does it by mistake. Just start giving infractions for people who constantly expire by mistake.

I'd like to know exactly how many people it does take to expire a deal,a mod said 2 or 3 so which is it,because so far it seems it's certainly more than 3,some clarification would help.

I clicked too and it's still there,if the three of us can't expire,that's a bit OTT !!

I've reported threads to mods on a couple of occasions to get them to expire,but who wants to do that all the time it's a pain.

Lol I just clicked and I can say it's still there...........so it's safe to say it's not say 2-3 clicks for confirmations and to allow for error....to how many?
