Found 14th Apr 2009
I submitted a post this am. I am really angry because I did all the search before hand to check that it had not been posted and nothing came back then I was just checking then low and behold someone no disrespect to choc1969 it had already been posted. So if this was already in the system why did it not come up on the search.
I dont post alot but i saw this And I thought this looks good.
Really this kind of stuff has put me off and please can someone please tell me why this happenened. I checked with see film first as well. Nothing came up. Surely this system is no good if this has happened. It has just been taken off no message to explain why. Can a mod please explain or anyone else.

What was it about?

did you use the 'Advanced'' search?

Thank for you query. The link to the original post was provided in your thread while you were still online & then member spammed as a duplicate.

The original post had been incorrectly expired though, so you may have your view setting to exclude expired deals. Go to & then click on on the banner that appears.

If you did have it on include expired already, then there are other help links in my signature that you should find useful in how to search for deals etc, thanks.

I guess with the volume of duplicates and "other posts" it wouldnt be feasible for the mods to contact every poster. This would be very time consuming.

ok then because the other deal was expired like sigma said, you obviously didnt have 'show expired' on thats why you couldnt find it.

Ouch. lol

Im my experience, the searches rely heavily in the tags that are entered when a post is created. The tags are, unfortunately, optional and it is easy to miss them out. If this is the case then nobody will find them. Any deal with proper tags entered will be found much more easily, which is why I make sure I add proper tags to my deals and also, if I see someone elses deal that I might want to look back on, I edit their post to add relevant tags.

The search does not search the tags.
