Yes it is done automatically, that was the whole point in the new system, so that when a deal was submited it was by the same link. It does it half the time. And I do check thats why I know its there?

Its done automatically... my wild guess is that the search fails for mymemory because of the unusual html link style they have :)

Part of the link is : [COLOR=navy]Street-Fighter-IV---Collectors-Edition-(Xbox-360)[/COLOR] which the system may not consider to be part of the main link.

As Edi mentioned, the dupe search is automatic, however as it is URL based any variations in the product URL may cause the search to fail. Members still need to perform a thorough search before submitting their offer :)

I do but I thought the whole point of the new system was to make it more user friendly and to eliminate the need to spam.

Can the system not include a title search also. Think this may make it more accurate.

As in you enter the url in, and then the step 3 if not seen as spam is to input a title which then gets quick checked agains't the database an so on and so fourth.

Thanks for your input, thought I was going crazy on the automatic bit and I do understand the varation in url from retailers changing there database/itemnumber etc.

As we know the search/advanced search is not the first place new users would go.
