The mod who moved it said they were going to ask you to re-post in the misc forum. Would you mind doing that?

Sorry if you never got PM... :)

I read that deal hours ago.
Maybe it should have been posted in the misc forum?


edit,
Ooooops, Emma has just replied.

Not a problem Emma, Did have it posted as a tip, which is what it is IMO.

Too busy to send a PM but not busy enuff to remove the post ??
I feel that the PM should be sent prior to the post being removed.

Why do people have to whinge so much about that? wouldn't you rather the mods were tending to the forum, every time I see someone saying 'HOW VERY DARE THEY NOT EVEN PM ME' I get the urge to slap 'em :P

FYI also, time it takes to delete a thread = 2 seconds, 1 click. time it takes to PM someone = 1 minute (at least) and several clicks. So yes, it's perfectly conceivable someone would be too busy to PM but not too busy to delete.

Not whinging as such, I appreciate that the Mods are busy but to be fair it takes more time to post a deal than it would for a mod to send a PM (we're all busy).
After all they are getting paid. (we think)

This particular post was posted as a "Tip". Obviously this is what it is, so no reason to delete or remove from this section.
Guess the annoyance is the fact that it gets removed for whatever reason and OP wonders if they are hallucinating.:p

As for raising the issue, it's the only way to find out for sure if the post has been removed officially by a Mod.

Apologies mrtootough :thumbsup: Was about to PM you yesterday eve but was distracted with something else.. We dont allow Quidco pointers in HOT DEALS forum unless there is a deal associated with it.

Can you post the info in Misc forum pls?

Already have posted in Misc. I posted it as a "tip" originally, which is what it is.
Thanks for the explanation.

Thanks for your understanding :)

mrtootough - I think you are confused about what mods do here. They are not here to provide a service to you, they are here to maintain order on the board for everyone. If you make a post outside of the board etiquette or rules and it is removed we are not here to compensate you for your time.

I know it sounds rough but honestly that's the way it is. The mods and all members try to be as considerate and polite as possible, but sending a pm for example is an act of consideration not something that you are "owed".

Previous Superhot Deal

I'm afraid I am confused, for some reason a lot of the moderation on this forum is inconsistent. At least 2 mods posted on the deal above, but when I posted a similar one, it gets deleted. Maybe then it is understandable that when I posted the deal, I was under the assumption that Quidco deals were allowed. I have looked thru the FAQ's and can't see any mention of this either.
Not sure what you mean by compensate me for my time !!
My gripe is, I post a deal/tip, it gets deleted and I'm left wondering what's happened.
Maybe these should go into a sin bin or similar and at least then members would be aware of the situation.
Starlet will be ready to slap me again now !!

No I agree it's partially our fault for not having a better forum guideline written out for people to follow.

I think the previous post was allowed as it was more on a larger level. What we're trying to avoid is things being posted which are really just cashback info - where would it stop? x% as HMV could be a deal also and so on.
#13
bazr's cashback post is nearly 8 months old and was allowed as an exception :)
#14
I too had a quidco cashback tip deleted yesterday and totally agree with it.I was not aware that we are now not allowing quidco cashback deals posted without a hot deal concerning the cashback retailer,but have no qualms about having it removed.It is no big deal to have to repost in this forum.Makes no odds to me whereabouts on the site it is.It is still viewable wherever it is.:)

I am exactly the same, doesn't matter to me where it's posted, but do wonder whats going on when it just gets deleted. I wonder if there's a problem with the site, did I do something wrong, should I repost it.

Like I suggested earlier, could we have a sin bin that these items go into and then at least we will know it has been deleted/moved. It doesn't have to be the full deal, just a one-liner.

Thoughts ?

Shame things aren't just moved rather than deleted. Pain in the bum if its a long post you end up retyping.

Good point

1. The Quidco pointer by bazr in Hot Deals forum was removed and PM sent to bazr requesting a repost in Misc forum
2. We cannot move deals posted in either HOT DEALS or FREEBIES forums as the posts are linked to front page. Threads in other forums can be moved and we do if appropriate
3. Usually when we require reposting of long threads, the original text is copied in the PM for convenience
