Wouldn't it be better if a number of people e.g 2-3 had to click expire before a thread is classed expired? - HotUKDeals

I doubt that many people go on "Expiring sprees". If they do, then the mods would remove their right to do so.

Leave it as it is. :)
I doubt that you'd get 5 people all expiring a deal, it could be there for hours.

I get what your saying but when people see a replicated deal they expire it cuz they have it happened to me a couple of times

They shouldn't be expiring replicated deals in any case, they should be spamming them.

Like I said, they should be "Spammed", not "Expired". Have a read of this award winning thread, it explains the difference between the two:

Spam and Expired as explained by thesaint

This makes no difference to your "problem", but at least you may understand it a bit better. :)

That's called expire abuse and they should receive a warning/infraction but you would have to prove it was on purpose and not simply an accident. "Oh sorry I thought it was a different date or it was over 3 months old?"

I didn't know that this was such a problem that would warrant it taking 5 people to expire a deal.

Just report it if you suspect that it's happening. The moderators will look into it, and punish the offender(s).

Exactly. If a member randomly expires deals for no reason they will be warned; if they continue then their ability to expire deals can be removed.

Regarding "it could be there for hours" could be replaced wioth "years". I still find, regularly old deals that have never been expired. Of course this is expected, as a deal will expire and unless there has been any activity on the post in recent days then it will get missed.

Personally, I think the current set up works fine, as long as it isn't abused. But I refer back to my opening sentance
