    Confused - Why was my post deleted?

    Can anyone shed any light on why my £2.50 amazon trade voucher thread was taken down?

    PM's after being taken down would be useful instead of just taking them down without any explanation.

    Perhaps you could pm them first to let them know you are in the process of removing their post.

    I don't think thats a good idea, in general if a post is a problem for the mods (and I have no idea why this one was removed - I didn't see it) then surely the priority is to remove it as soon as possible?

    O, i wanted to trade my £2.50 amazon voucher for something else as i wasnt going to use it.

    Against the rules which is fair enough.

    must be a new rule as loads have been exchanged on here.

    Not a new rule at all We've requested from the start that if a member doesn't want their voucher, they kindly return it to Admin. A few threads have slipped through the net but we've closed as many as we can

    Only 1/5 of our member database recieved a voucher, it's only fair that the remaining 4/5ths have a chance of getting one, rather than members trying to make a profit.

    Fascism

    More than a few slipped through the net there must off been 100+ Amazon voucher sale or trades on here.

    The ones I've seen have been offering them free to the 1st person to reply

    thats fair enough but its a bit rich when theres a voucher section which is full of vouchers that weren't directly meant for most of the people that use them courtesy of hotukdeals.

    if you live by the word then you die by the sword.

    but thems the rules.

    The minute you give something away, as a gift. It's no longer your choice what's done with it.
    The whole point of this site, is making profit / saving money, is it not?

    I don't get it....?

    So, we should be happy when we get a good deal, but feel guilty that we bilked someone else?

    I you "Give " another (another person) a gift........it's no longer yours!.........It then becomes that persons possession, to do with as they please.....you no longer own it, and it is no longer yours to make demands upon. So, otherwise "DO NOT OFFER IT: Do not give it away., don't do it. Unless you make your stipulations known, up-front.

    If you feel otherwise, it's either passive aggression, or misguided gifting. To "Huk" that person into your realm of power. I ain't too smart, I ain't had much "fancy book learning", but I know the difference between a gift and a loan!

    There has to be a reason the vouchers were given away....was it entirely altruistic?....Don't get me wrong, I was somewhat pleased and surprised to win one. But, why was " I "chosen to receive it, was it an arbitrary decision?

    I now have a voucher, what should I do with it? Give it to one of the "4/5ths" users that didn't go online at 4am that night? Should I feel guilty? Should I feel remorse, or pleasure?......It's all too much for me, I prefer to pay my own way, maybe I should re-gift it, or give it back to Admin.....But perhaps I'll hoard it, jealously.

    You do as you wish with it. It's such a small amount it could be seen as petty to attempt selling it.

    If someone gave you a gift, the term you used, would you sell (or trade) it to the person sitting next to them in their house?

    So, this person gives you a Yoda Mug while you are visiting them, for your birthday. You then decide to tell all their housemates that you don't really want the Yoda Mug and would rather have a USB drive. Not very nice to the person who gave you the Yoda Mug in the first place?

    :-D

    No but this is not a Yoga mug, its a code.

    And if a person does that, that's entirely their right as it is in fact their item, and of course this voucher has not been given my a mate/relative but from a website who is profiting from giving away codes.

    Not too good with the metaphors, huh?..............You angry people seem to be missing my whole point. I was willing to give the voucher back, or to someone whom needed it. more then myself.
    And to the person whom called me a leech and the mod that allowed the insult to remain....well, what can I say?

    Ok, I think it's time this was locked up.

    Emma's point is we worked hard to get the voucher giveaway set up, and a lot of members used this as an oppurtunity to make a profit (by selling). To stop this, we asked members to stop requesting/selling them as it was unfair on the 4/5th of members who didn't recieve a voucher.
