What to do when you see a duplicate post?

Now that I'm getting to be a HUKD addict (!) I sometimes see duplicate deal posts - what is the correct thing to do when you see a duplicate? I always post in the thread to say it's a duplicate ... but then what?

I have hit expire on a couple, but then nothing much seems to happen. I have reported one, but then felt really bad about it...

What should I do next time? Thanks

I did that, but then I felt really bad about it - isn't that more if the post is offensive or something - seemed a bit OTT ...

1. Write that it is a duplicate post in the thread, and provide a link.
2. Use the "Report post" button and copy and paste the link to the original deal, and let the Mods know why you are reporting it.
3. Press "Spam" NOT "Expire", as when it is expired, it can not be spammed.

best thing to do is strip off and cover yourself with jam then stand outside near a wasp or hornets nest. I find that helps.

What is the difference between 'spam' & 'expire' please?

Expired threads remain visible, spammed threads are sent to the HUKD dungeon where they can only be seen by the moderators/Admin.

It takes 2 or more "High Class" members like myself to "Spam" a thread, or many more "Bargain bucket" members.

If you write in the duplicate thread and provide a link, then others can easily read the original thread, and join you in spamming it to pergatory. :)

What makes you 'High Class'? Number of posts/rep or Solar flare??

Number of posts can be gained very easily.
Rep can be gained for doing nothing noteworty.
Solar Flare is the same as number of posts.

If you have to ask, then it's safe to assume that you will never make it to the "Hall of Fame" with the social elite.

There's nothing wrong with being a bargain bucket member, it's just that there will always be members who are more equal than others. :)
