That's what "expired" is for... if the deal is no longer available :)

if an item is out of stock click the expire button, thats how members know, and if the item becomes bk in stock, just contact a mod and they can unexpire.

edit : darn u jb for being so quick lol

well out of stock and expried is really 2 different indications:

Out of Stock - if deal is still available at quoted price but items are out of stock

Expired - Merchant has changed the price or removed item from there website


For example Amazon marks items "available in 2-4 weeks" when they go out of stock, but people mark it as "expired" and if you have default settings of HUKD, filter expired deals, you miss them.

Lets discuss...

If Amazon say they are available in 2-4 weeks, then they are out of stock(They had them, now they have sold them all).

If you can still order them, then that is fair enough. If you can't, then it's "Expired".

See this post of amazon, you can still order them at price quoted but instead of people marking it as out of stock they marked as expried. That why I suggested to have 2 different indication ....

I will report that post to be "Un-expired", but in my opinion, too many buttons would lead to even more confusion.

Reporting post will be an extra administration task.

A simple toggle button which users can change will help.....

I don't think so, if you read through some threads there are 'debates' over whether something is in stock or not - the current system clearly works better as otherwise people would just swap the status back and forth to get nowhere.

Agree 100% There are regular occurrences of people spamming & expiring threads incorrectly. An out of stock indicator could potentially cause more confusion.

If it was an instore deal one person could say it was out of stock at their store, but it still could be available at other locations. Online deals would also be open to various levels of interpretation / confusion with the deal getting changed between instock /out of stock depending on who was reading the particular thread.

There would be no level of accountability if members could change it, & if only the OP could change it then it wouldn't necessarily be kept up to date - how often does an OP expire their own deal compared to one of the members reading their thread.

As it can't be done automatically & it's reliant on an individual to change it, it could actually be incredibly problematic. I appreciate that's just my opinion though :thumbsup:
