If it's only one or two people, then it's hardly a problem.

I accidentally clicked the expire button on a deal the other day (sensitive touchpad) - I was surprised there wasnt a way of undoing that

But how can active deals spen 90% of the time expired,

Admin

As soon as we receive reports about wrongly expired deals, we unexpire them. If individuals are purposefully expiring deals incorrectly then we will PM them, warn them and if it continues we block their vote altogether.
The expire button is a useful thing for members to be able to use, and it works well as long as it's not abused.

jb it became obvious a long long time ago that the mods have no record of who presses the spam and expire buttons. That's ok providing people make it obvious in the comments, but otherwise you are screwed. You can (and will) deny it, but I know 100% that this is the case.

Now is the time to allow users with high vote powers (say +9's only) to unexpire deals.

It'll help the moderators and the forum.

This is entirely untrue.

I recently PM'med some members who had wrongly expired threads in Misc, but hadn't posted in them. I believe they were a little shocked when they were asked why they'd expired those threads...

thats rubbish. I expired two questions in misc and got a warning for doing so. I then pointed out that the questions had been answered and the warning was withdrawn.

Don't believe you (unless things have changed recently).

A long time ago I used to test you mods :P went through threads and threads expiring. You couldn't possibly have missed me. I understand why you want to keep it quiet, and I only shout about it when mods say they are dealing with it :P when they clearly arent!

its not rubbish. the mods cannot (or couldnt) see expirers or spammers.

It's true, Ducky PMed me the other day asking why I'd expired something, and I hadn't posted that I'd expired it.

ok, you're right and the mod is wrong! Good guess a few weeks back by them then giving me an infraction for spamming a few of the littlewoods voucher deals :whistling:

We've had that functionality for at least two years. :? We do sometimes just unexpire without checking who expired it, but if we think someone's wrongly or maliciously expired something then we'll take a look.

take your choice then ducky:

1) You are lying
2) All the mods are incredibly lazy
3) I'm just extremely lucky

Dude even recently I went through and expired a load of guv's posts (he does the same so he won't mind).

I wonder if there is a bug in the forum code then in which I can't be infracted for expiring? Lets face it - i get infracted for everything else, so you'd think the mods would be watching me like a hawk?

Sloth/Mod

How old are you Vibeone?? I'm guessing from your posts in here you are a young teenager at the most.

Spend less time on here and get some friends and let people just get on without childish little messing about of threads. :thumbsup:

Mods, If you find that I have expired Vibeone's (or any one else's for that matter), please infract or ban me. The only threads I would expire would be in deals where the offer has expired or no longer available.

If you find that anyone has done this to my threads, kindly do the same.

Thanks.

PS. It sounds very much like at least one member needs to have their Spam / Expired rights removed.

Just to clear up any doubt - I took a snapshot of VB1's expired threads going back over 3+ months.

Of the 5, 2 were mod expired (fs/ft), another by the OP as matter resolved and the final 2 being from different members, guv not being amongst them I'm afraid.

As long as I've been around, we've always been able to review all votes, spam/expiry/hot and cold. To suggest anything else is wrong, although I've seen the comments before from the same member and glossed over. We can't reply to every post made.

An apology for what? Not expiring your threads?

Look almost all of this thread is utter rubbish. There is no snapshot, and the reason I haven't be infracted is because they have no proof - either way.

Lets look at it another way guv - do you really believe I *haven't* expiring your threads?

(I also don't believe you when you say you haven't expired mine - but lets face it, theres no proof either way there either)

Also interested to know why only 3 months ASB. Since the mods don't normally give out information regarding users/infractions/suspensions, despite clearly making a special case for me (yet again), I'm happy for you to continue as it might be the only chance we get.

This snapshot you talk about - you have my registration date - give us your (made up) breakdown of all my expiries since May 2007.

vibeone - repping the misk - and now feedback - since 2007

Oh and Syzable - get some better insults. "How old are you" is beyond pathetic.

Are you on drugs?

Take a look at your admission in post number 15.

"Dude even recently I went through and expired a load of guv's posts (he does the same so he won't mind)."


So you've admitted you've been expiring my threads. You've then gone on to accuse me of expiring yours, which the mods have confirmed is completely untrue.

But in any case, I never expected anything more from you, hence my remark about flying pigs.

As this is the feedback section, can the mods confirm if its OK to expire members threads you don't like (as seen in post 15).

Seems to be sending out a message that its ok to do so and then use feedback to flag wave how big and clever to have got away with it.

I appreciate the accusation that I had expired threads had been verified as incorrect, but the other part remains unclear as requested in post 19.

Thanks

Members shouldn't expire threads for the simple reason that they don't like/agree with the post. The Code of Conduct refers.

As for the other allegation, I've also reviewed. However if you've noticed the volume of expired threads, then you'll realise that there isn't an issue (I did go back 3 months). The 3 I picked up on were all mod expired - although I didn't check the reason, e.g. mod expiry at member request.

Members should note that feedback is not an extension of Misc.\

So his flag waving claim was a lie. Thanks for clarifying.

Given the taunting in this thread towards myself, Syzable and the mods, it would be a good idea to do something about it then. It's the only way to stop it.
