Hi stealadeal,

Sorry your deals were reposts. We do ask that members thoroughly search prior to posting and to make sure their deal has not been posted previously within a four week time scale. Obviously your deal was a good one, as you rightly mentioned it was gaining heat. However there are one or two reasons why we don't tend to allow reposts within such a short space of time.

Primarily, if we allow the same deal to be reposted over and over, it essentially makes the content on Hotukdeals pretty unusable as it's then bulked out with repeat deals. I hope you can appreciate why that would concern us and why we feel that would be detrimental to the site.

The other main issue is that dealposters, as you've demonstrated, are very protective of their deals. And rightly so, they put a lot of work into sourcing and publishing what they find. How would you feel from the other side of the fence, if you'd been first to spot an ongoing deal and gained a reasonable amount of heat, only for another member to repost one week later and have their deal skyrocket. Wouldn't really be fair, would it?

We do appreciate members taking the time to post deals, of course, that's what the community here is all about. But this rule is one of the few we have in place in order to make the site a fair place.

Again, sorry your first experience of posting deals hasn't been particularly fun, hopefully you'll stick at it as you've obviously got an eye for a bargain

I guess one mod thought it was ok ans " cuzzy " did not

people and the comunity thought they was good deals and obviously had not seen the post made over a week ago....like me!

thanks but i was only trying to help and now feel my time helping has been wasted by cuzzy deleting the post. I even showed him a previous post that i had made that he had missed so he deleted that as well!

Thats my 2 week intro....

I had time to give you but thats been squashed by mods so fair well

try searching before posting then you wont have anything to whine about. Duplicates get removed and always have so get used to it pal.

Oh and BTW, farewell...

Just accept it, you were wrong, if every deal was constantly reposted the site would be a waste of time, re-bump the old thread instead.
