expiring it leaves it on the boards, spamming it removes it from the boards, i post link to originol and spam

I wish some people would realise not everyone may have seen the original post - I don't understand why the need for the cold vote - just tell the OP that the item has already been listed as already mentioned - sounds easy to me!!

Does a cold vote on a dupe actually mean anything though?

Well, it would go towards calculating your average voting rep... i.e. the power you have to vote on other peoples' deals.

Surely the best thing to do with a dupe post is totally ignore it, the thread will dissapear quicker than x factor contestant without a sob story.

Replying to the thread at all just keeps it up on the first few pages.

Just ignore them altogether.

many people ahvent seen the old post, hence why they end up posting in new posts, then if ignored you end up with 2,3,4 posts all for the same item

Even a dupe that is subsequently removed?

Seems harsh, but I suppose it is a good form of "punishment" for not searching properly.
I never cold vote dupes, may do so now. :evil:

I don't think it's fair to vote cold on a duplicate as punishment for not finding the original post ! - if they are a newbie or infrequent poster it's better to let them know nicely & spam it. I honestly believe if you help someone they'll learn & hopefully pass the information on. Maybe I'm too idealistic :?

If you hit the expire button it removes the spam option so then the only way to get it removed is use the report button, so I sometimes print after the duplicate URL link as a reminder. And believe me I report a lot of duplicates ;-)

No.... the best thing to do is click spam on it, post a link to the original thread, and ask other forum memebers to click spam on it as well. If you're really enthusiastic, you can even report it to mods to be removed.

I Spam and Expire many deals. I always give a link and if I have time post a link to "How to submit a deal..." or "How to search..." or tell them how I found it was a dupe etc etc.

I also report loads of threads to have the price and/or retailer put in the title(Probably 10-15 today alone).

I don't think it's fair that cold votes on a dupe are counted towards your overall score, it was a joke, but seems like I am not allowed those on HUKD. :santa:

I always wait a few minutes if I have posted a link.

The only time I spam straight away is if someone else has already pointed it out.

so you think people sit and watch their posts for a response :w00t:

we where all newbies once, to link and spam is all thats needed and yes we then get loads of where did my thread go, but there isnt alot else we can do, like i said the same ones who will be asking today where there thread is are the same ones who will be answering the same questions they asked months down the line

If it is a new deal, then most do(Watch their deal).

If they don't, then I have wasted no ones time but my own.

i sometimes get a pm from the mods saying that my post was a 'dupe' so its been deleted. That defo helps and saves me from posting another thread asking where its gone, if the mods could do this 100% it would help but its hit and miss

most cant even find the deal they have just posted - lol

I was referring to your post where you said, they deserve the cold heat as punishment for not searching, newbies sign up and post a deal, they aint even aware you need lessons in the bolan (whatever the bleedin name is) search, like i said we all leanrt as we went along, same as we did, same as they are

yes, many slip through the net, hence why they are not aware, also may dont even know about the pm system when new, it has been asked before if dues could have auto pms sent to the op, but its never been set up, dont know if its something that could be

Well the alternative is to simply "Spam".

I sometimes get a reply from the OP that they didn't realise etc etc. So I shall carry on.

Really good idea. When a thread is spammed it can vanish quickly before the OP has had time to read the reason - that can result in a repost or a which is completely understandable if you don't understand the site yet.

Some sort of auto PM would help greatly. Even if there were 3/4 standard replies for MODs to select eg

You thread has been removed as it is a duplicate posting / Repost
You thread has been removed as it is Amazon Market Place Seller / ebay / Non UK Site

something anyway for the OP

I posted a dupe tonight but I searched twice for it. Obviously I didn't do a very good job! However, it it's been a good while since it was last on then I don't see the harm in mentioning it again. After all, isn't the idea of this site to share deals and not just spam, expire, report, vote cold and constantly whinge at peoples genuine mistakes???
