Didn't you post a deal that was only correcting the error of an earlier poster who transposed 2 figures e.g. £7.94 instead of £7.49 re shdc cards ?

Regardless, wouldn't it have merited an update to the original thread ?

no i saw a deal for 7.94 i found a deal for 7.49 which has been done on my deals many times, only the other night i posted a deal for play and i in error posted a wrong price now my deal was spammed (wrong price) yet the later post stayed so if thats what your saying then my deal was valid if your a mod you can check this, is it one rule for one and another for someone else here.

Sorry, but it's ultra busy at the moment. I would have responded at the 1st opportunity, but had you had the decency to await a response, given the very short period since your PM, rather than escalating direct via feedback, then I would have been able to deal with your issue.

As before, the deal you posted was a duplicate and I corrected the transposed figures. I would have hoped you could have mentioned this in the original thread, that way we could have saved a lot of fuss and the original thread could/should have been bumped.

I don't think there is a rigid rule but generally speaking......

If the existing post is
- from the same retailer
- is for roughly the same price (less than £1 difference)
- is less than a month old
Then the existing deal should be bumped.

If it has been expired, or is old or has a significant price difference - then you can repost the deal but use your commonsense (if it was expired yesterday or is still a very active deal then its probably better that the mods are asked to unexpire or update etc).

i posted a deal the other day it got spammed this is the message i got
Hi
If you'd have edited the price before it was posted at correct price then the 'repost' would have been a dupe; however as he posted at £34.99 and you at £47.99 and he posted at cheaper price then it's only fair that his should remain
yet when i posted a deal i.e the shdc card price difference the mod said they had not posted correct price I got spammed rules should be the same thats why there are rules

babymanor,

As above, review gari189 response. Your situations are quite different.

no they are not because of the item price in %.... if something is only worth a pound and you find it for 75p then its considered as a deal yet if you find it for 30p its an even better deal, but how can you put that difference in if its considered less then a pound difference they are not the same price
thank you

babymanor,

Please reconsider your outbursts, unfortunately that's all they are in this instance. I've explained to you quite clearly the decision in regards to the thread in question. I'm not familiar with your latest response either, given that it's a made up scenario. Again I refer you to the Gari189 post.

If there's anything else you need clarification on, do give us a shout (unless you're sticking to your comments in the Misc thread). We don't really want anyone walking away because of a misunderstanding.

Regards

funny that but as soon as i posted it on feedback thats when you answered so then you had time
you try to little my comments as calling them outbursts when you know the truth, you are suposed to be fair and truthful regarding your position on here but i find that not to be true, for set aside the jargon its quite simple if you want to listen that is quite simply i posted a deal cheaper then the previous deal WHICH has happened to me on many occassions, now you say rather then posting a new deal i should just have pointed that out on the so called original post (of which the are many for this card in question) I feel as it has happened to me and let ride i can do the same, as to the comment imade about rules if rule are set they should be the same for everyone. Regarding the respose which you are not familiar with its quite easy Gari189 said if there is less then £1 in difference you cant repost but what if an item is low cost to start with then that rule cant apply also many times i have seen reposts of much less then 50p difference of which im sure you know alreaady. Conclusion as i said before lots of op's spend hours helping others all you expect in return is some understanding from mod team members not just to rubbish your Grievence and quote jargon you've been here a while now and i supose not bothered so much now as you were once.

As with anything in life use your commonsense - the Mods did the right thing. Even if they do the wrong thing and don't change their mind, there is very little you can do about it. Mods run the site - mostly they get it right but occasionally they do things some of us regard as wrong or inconsistent. You just have to accept it and let it drop.....

If something on here is really niggling you and you've said your piece and its still niggling - close your computer and go do something else. End of the day this is a silly little deals site on the silly little internet - their are much more important things to worry about in life

too many memory sticks spamming up forums anyway basically due to this reposting each time a retailer drops price a few pence
50p out of 7.94 is 6%
£13 out of 47.99 is 27% so wildly different both in relative and absolute terms
