Just to add some balance here, I want to quote one of sigmatic's (the other poster) comments from your thread, which I think summarises what happened nicely. You're currently accusing sigmatic of stealing info from your thread, however other members within your own thread accused you of the same and sigmatic defended you.


Sigmatic
That isn't true. omisnad did not "steal" that deal.

I posted that other deal up and originally I only posted about the longer list of discounts available from Wednesday. In the comments, someone mentioned that there are other games being discounted from Monday, so I edited my deal to add those in, but unknown to me, omisnad had started this deal in between me originally starting mine and editing in the extra deals.

Without blowing my own trumpet (oo-er!), my deal contains more games and info than this one, but I just wanted to clarify that omisnad is no "deal thief".


A complete list of next week's deals is here: -

yep-its ridiculous-exact same thing happened when fifa10 was released to me(for asda). Guy posts a deal with the WRONG price,but noone can dispute it until release date,attracts huge amounts of heat-his post has been on for 4 days when we get the paperwork in asda telling us the release price-I post it with the accurate price(5 quid LESS than the original 4 day old post)-he promptly edits his 4 day old post to my price and spams mine!

So,in theory then,I can make a post NOW stating that the next big game will be five quid on release day,nobody can prove me wrong-I claim "inside info"-attract thousands of degrees of heat for it,then edit the price when I know what it actually is-its thoroughly dishonest of someone to edit their deal to take details someone else took the trouble to find.

Well thats fair enough ... i couldnt read that since my thread was deleted. Although i do have to differ that he did know about the deal i posted :

Sigmatic
I've added that info into the deal as well, even though it's already been posted separately.


... I think we both posted our deals within 5 minutes of each other, and he edited his some 20 minutes later. I just dont see why he couldnt have linked to mine. Rather than edit his at the top, thus rendering mine as spam. Im not dissing sigmatic, as im sure it wasnt his intention to get mine spammed. I just wish Mods were little more understanding before deleting deals.

it's not that important theres no prize for the highest rep or heat we are all just doing each other a favor by posting a bargain if we see one

I still post deals because I'm not a pathetic character who can't handle criticism from people I don't know, nor will ever meet.

Grow up and pull yourself together!

To veer off-topic somewhat you might be able to handle criticism vibeone, but of someone dares to sign their name at the end of a post, that seems to flip your switch and you go ape.

(But I do agree with vibeone in this instance, if you are/were only posting deals to gain heat and/or rep, do you not think that's a bit sad?)

Josh - honestly, thats not a bad shout. It's a fair cop.

I've always admitted that I don't tolerate idiots well. They do indeed get me annoyed.

There can be a little bit of ego involved, and I don't doubt some people "nick" extra details listed already for similar stores. I'd never dream of doing it.

The closest I ever got was posting a DVD deal from an email special I'd received. Minutes later someone posted an identical one (I imagine it was just fastest fingers first, rather than copying my post, as it was so quick). And this member had a total tantrum about it. Really, really silly.
