I've been put off making another deal ont his site because the last post I did was met with idiotic/sparodic voting and hostility and negativity.

I particularly didn't like being voted cold for 'bumping' my deals by replying to messages or adding my own thoughts (I didnt even know what bumping was). This is a forum! Communication should be encouraged not penelised! Crazy!

Im my case I spent time and effort posting it out of the goodness of my heart whn I could easily have sat at home playing my game but I wanted others to benefit also but all I got was heckling...Its left a bitter taste in my mouth...

Whats more Ive noticed that people vote willy nilly on things like, not being close to them, didn't like the game, couldnt find the item cause it was sold out, bumps, didn't like the poster...It's just getting stupid.


Am I over reacting or do I have a point? How can we improve this site?

It's always been like this, and there have been many threads started saying the same. People will always be fickle, you just need to try and ignore it.

what deal was it?

It was kinda nuts cause it got into negative figures and Im sure loads of people missed out on getting FIFA10 on PS3 for £15 and at the same time another post for FIFA 10 at Asda for £26 went into the thousands!! Madness..

I know what you are saying...i sometimes feel disheartened when i see silly things like 50p off batteries and everyone voting hot and it gets ridiculous amounts of votes??? Beyond me-i love a bargain/hot deal but i dont consider 50p off a pack of 12 batteries a bargain??? I also didnt know you werent supposed to write on your own submitted deal?? I, like you just want to shout about a great find and let others know where to find them-i hate seeing people paying over the odds-especially on Ebay!!!

Your deal only arose as a result of a mistake. BlockBuster should only have accepted Ultimate Alliance 2 as part of the trade in. The till assistant made a mistake ?

If so, that's not a deal, although lucky for you.

Thank you super moderator for clearing that up. I guess it was totally different to when argos posted Infamous, Motorstorm Pacific Rift and Resistance 2 for £20 then...I guess that wasn't a 'real' deal and that shouldnt have got deal of the week then...?! :whistling:

That was a systems error and more likely to succeed (even in the short term).

Anyhow, members decide - nothing personal.

I was told at the till (Which was verified ON THE COMPUTER) that it was a mistake that got printed in the national press and they were told to honour it...They even had a barcode for it AND a scanned the game I took in too (Ultimate Alliance ONE). So if you didn't try your luck (Like the Argos deal) of course you're not going to get the game...Meh
