To look at this positively might I suggest a future enhancement when reporting spam (at least for the mods) that allows the URL of the extant deal to be specified and and positive votes transferred to it (ignore negative votes that might have been cast because it is a duplicate).

Unfortunately that would be extremely time consuming ! Whether a previously posted deal that is still active is cold it doesn't justify re-posting the deal. PLUS spammed threads aren't always spammed by staff they may have been member spammed, going onto a section for a retailer and find numerous threads for the same deal is quite annoying, unnecessary and makes the site un-tidy.

What kind of deals can I post here?

Any deals can be posted, but the site is all about the hottest deals available in the UK, so run a price comparison check before posting and ensure its not been posted within the last 4 weeks or itll be deleted as a duplicate post.

I was suggesting an automated process! That's what computers do. ;)

Hi Holly
The issue I have and I always say if a post is a dup, this issue isn't the fact that it's a duplicate but the fact that the deal could have been sitting for an hour or more have lots of people posting on it and it goes hot. The other deal was posted at the wrong time and therefore didn't get the temp it deserves but why delete a hot deal that's what the site is about hot deals and people power made it hot and mods didn't spot it or it wasn't reported so it's hot just leave it. It will get to the stage where people will see posts they have posted against get hot and their comments deleted and simply stop posting on here and I am sure none of us want that :(. Sorry for the rambling post
