    Into the black hole of removed posts . . .

    Just posted a reminder deal that the Ikea 21%off starts this saturday but no sooner had I clicked the submit button it was removed!
    Thought i'd be doing alot of people a favour by reposting it, since it was over a month ago that it was originally posted and alot of people would have forgotten. Also, any newbees probably wouldn't go back over post that old. When I first started using this site I only looked at the new deals posted.
    I made it clear that it was not me that originally posted the deal - credit to Dappy for that.
    Just wanted to remind you people. Perhaps thats the reason it was removed!
    I try to do my bit and post any deals I find.
    I feel really disappointed.

    We've been planning our trip to ikea for weeks now around this offer hoping to get our wardrobe doors which were out of stock when we bought our wardrobes & bunk beds for the boys. I hope they're in stock :thumbsup:

    Oooo...iim glad you told me as i had no idea!
    Spoted a rug there i'd like at the weekend but wasnt 100% sure if i should get it or not. Think i'll have to have another trip hehee...thank you.......see i didnt know.

    :thumbsup::thumbsup:: p::thumbsup:dont feel disappointed - it was a great reminder


    i thought it was a good reminder - and as you say for anyone who didnt see the original thread - i think it is a good idea to put up regular deals every now and again - i have said this before

    roll on saturday - hope you have your family card as well to get free tea + coffee plus 25% off certain items

    If I was trying to take the credit for someone elses post, then I could understand, but I made it perfectly clear that I wasn't the original poster.
    Like I said before, I'm really upset!
    No one is forced to put deals on this site - people do it for the benefit of others.
    It makes me feel like not posting anymore deals.:cry:

    Yes, but not everyone reads the recently discussed. I used to only read the new deals.

    that wouldnt have been why your post was removed, it would be removed because basically its a dupe, and on the same board, please dont take offense, just go bump the other:thumbsup:

    I thought my removed posts plugged that black hole up?

    I think someone probably flushed them down to make room for more ...:x

    Trust me, they would have needed more than a flush. It would have needed at least the coat hanger treatment.

    thanks I had totally forgotton ;-)

    ]cassieismydoggie - we generally do not allow dupes at all, in fact, we never usually even allow reminders.

    This has also been posted by other people, and also removed, so it wouldn't be fair to leave your post up.

    I have PMed the OP and said on this occasion it would be suitable for a re-post, but he has not done so as yet.

    but then if he doesn't re-post there will be many who don't see the deal and will miss out. Can't understand the rule for not allowing reminders (especially when original post was so long ago). Also, if the first reminder had been left then I wouldn't have posted the reminder.
    Rules are rules I suppose - I won't remind anyone in future.

    Thats why we have bumps?

    But like I said previously, some people don't read the discussed, they go straight for the new hot deals. I don't care who reminds people, I just think that people should be.

    I'm afraid I agree with Emasu and Sassie on this - bump the original deal. I've bumped a deal that was 4 or 5 months old before. If people don't look at recently discussed items then thats their problem.......either that or ban deals that are more than a week in the future.

    thanks had forgotten!

    I only look at new deals, so the reminder was great.
    Haven't a clue what a bump is or how to do it. :?

    I don't always check discussed so thanks again cassieismydoggie

    A bump is when you write a comment ( or write bump) on a post to bring it back from oblivion and make it go to the top of the recently discussed section. It doesn't go to the new hot deals section unfortunately (therefore not everyone will see it).:thumbsup:

    Thanks for the info x

    There are not enough hours in the day to read all the discussed deals, I only get round to that when I am looking for something in particular. So I agree that a reminder is good for a deal that was posted so far in advance, however as my sister is planning a new Ikea Kitchen I have not been allowed to forget this one, thanks anyway!!

    It can be very time consuming just checking Hot and New deals regularly, and recently discussed can get very repetitive.

    How about some positive comments as to how the site could be improved for everybodys benefit so that people don't miss out on deals just because they were posted well in advance?

    There was a big article in my local paper about this sale. They were talking about all the extra policing that is needed for the sale:w00t:They were also warning people about some serious traffic congestion and to stay away unless you were going to the sale.
