It was removed because it had been spammed! :(

Glad you got it shipped, if it's been shipped I would say its guarenteed you will get it and there is nothing play can do now so you should be safe to reveal but again its up to you.
#2
Why would it have been spammed!?
#3
glad its been shipped-they cant take it back now-I totally agree with you holding back under the circumstances,but you would be perfectly safe to share now-IF you want to that is-up to you.
#4
No idea but when I went back into check it there was just a message saying 'This thread has been removed as it has been spammed'.

Think when two people click the spam button it marks it as spammed and it is deleted but don't know for sure.
#5
See thats what annoys me about this site, that it can just get spammed so easily, like tink said maybe because someone was fed up I wouldnt tell but with good reason.

You dont know what to do for the best on here sometimes!

WHo knows, probably some one getting fed up because you didn't tell them there and then I expect.

Think Tink is prob right! I was quite enjoying the whole guessing game everyone had lol even had a dream last night as to what it was lol dreamt it was the guiness book of world records that had some amazing price lol
#7
You can tell me now,thanks :D
#8
I was wondering where it went, can't believe it got spammed, probably by someone who was jealous!!

Congrats on getting it shipped, you going to share now?
#9
Tink speaks sence as always, cheers Tink.

probably spammed by the very people who would buy 50 and put them on ebay-you raised an interesting point about what to do tho-if you find a good misprice,and you are the only one who orders,chances are you will get it-if hundreds pile into the same thing they will be alerted by unusual buying patterns and nobody gets it-its a dilemma for sure.

the fact that they have shipped and charged your card means they are now in a legally binding contract tho so you are quite safe-they cant ask you to pay any difference.
#11
Yep I agree with Tink, have been 'hurt' by people before on this site ruining deals etc

Thats reassuring, so its on its way we think and no extra charges or anything
#13
How much money are we talking,i hope it's more than 50p lol
#14
Like the old school days, a few people ruin it for the rest of us.
#15
If your card has been charged then they can't take extra money because it was mis-priced.

no extra charges-the contract is formed when they ship-not as some people believe,when they charge your card-they have to do BOTH-they have absolutely no comeback now under law-as soon as they shipped they entered a legally binding contract at the price shown.

Someone did say on the thread 'Spammed out of jealousy'

Obviously wasn't a Osmond's fan. :D

Yep barky is right, studied a bit of consumer law a few years back and what she is saying is true.

Good price :) well done on getting it, think I get it for free through an MSDN licence, must go check if its up yet but well done on your bargin!
#27
I suppose if you were looking for it you'd know it was the wrong price,where as i would think 18.99 was correct lol
#28
Congrats OP, not something i would have ordered, but well done, my curiosity is now fulfilled!
#29
Wow, Micosoft Office.

Thanks, sorry its too late to share, this has taught me one thing that maybe its worth keeping a list on my buddys list of people to send the misprices to if I come up with them, thats the second in 6 months from play, last time I posted some people bought 40 and hopefully were rejected, however I did receive mine.

But I think the honest ones should be able to benefit from things like this (meaning all of you above).

Thanks

I was wondering where this thread had gone, glad to know it worked out.

I wish the number required to spam a thread was a little higher or just commenting was disabled until a similar number 'un-spammed' a thread.
#32
Well done for getting yourself a hot deal :) I would have done the same as you.

To be honest, there is quite a valid argument in saying that a post which basically says "There's a really hot deal over at Play, but I'm not going to tell you what it is so go and search the site for yourself" does fall into the category of spam...
#35
Thats really good u got it, i was hoping to see if ud posted anything on here as i noticed yest ur post had disappeared!!! Not something id of brought, i probably wouldnt of even noticed it was a mis price if it had been right in front of me lol

......and I've got mine but uh oh they've put the price back up now! I'll make a buddy list of people who said "Well Done" to me now and pm them misprices in the future. :)

I disagree.........it was posted in Misc and wasn't offensive or containing anything against rules so don't understand how it could be viewed as Spam?

If posted in Deals then yes it's spam but never in Misc

By that reckoning then every thread in Misc is possibly Spam.

Spam on the grounds that is inciting traffic over to browse a commercial site when there may, or may not, be a hot deal. Whilst I'm 100% certain that wasn't the intention, I'm be very surprised if it wasn't the outcome, and would be a fairly clever stealth-marketing technique that might be exploited by one of the numerous self-promoters on this site.
