Yeah, I just noticed it as I read the thread in deals - does seem a bit strange tbh. As yours is the original, the other I suppose should really be spammed - but i'm not to sure. Maybe try the report button?

I'm not sure either as one is in deals and one not etc

BUT the OP should have at least thanked you for posting it originally as a courtesy.

When I try to use the report button it will onyl let me spam it, won't let me put any comments in as to why I'm spamming it. Hoping a mod will pick up on this thread and descide what to do!

My thoughts exactly, or said to me on Fri, "I think this should be in deals."

I had that problem last week,thought it was just me,i couldn't add any comment at all as to why i was reporting a thread to be unexpired.

if you chose other instead of spam it asks for comments

It's not life or death BUT

If it were I,I'd be miffed at someone posting in my thread then posting it elsewhere and taking the credit for it.

It doesn't, it comes up with a box for comments but when I try to type in it it disappears.

As Deb8z said, not life or death, but come on, the guy replied to my thread, then poached it as his own discovery. It's not like he didn't know about my listing. Not very nice!

seen it done many a time, they could have at least given you credit for it, last time i saw this done the deal went to over 3000 heat i think and not even a mention to who posted it in misc

I usually use IE 8 and it doesn't work, just tried it in IE6 and it does, def browser issue.

Yes, I must say it's a tad annoying, especially when it is someone who has posted in the original thread.

clicky - original thread by OP

and particularly when that person has made inquiries and she has posted comments in the original and then posts in deals later

clicky -thread 2 days later by DLM

Perhaps one of the comments might have been that you should request it to be moved when it was an active deal. Very poor internet etiquette and not even a credit.

I hope that mods can do something.

Anyway well done you OP for the original thread and the heads up.

Totally agree Debs.

This poster has went to a lot of trouble gathering all that information...........then someone who posts up in that thread THANKS FOR THE INFORMATION goes off and posts it in deals oO

Sassie, I'm not sure what post in misc you refer to, there's millions. Do let us know and we'll comment.

i hadnt noticed your original thread - did the secod one and commented

it was a super post - as i said been waiting for this

but it seems the etiquette has gone from here now -

just yesterday there were 2 posts going for free film - one in deals and 1 in freebies -

over the past few weeks i have seen dupes - i put a nice enough comment in and spammed / reported - - nothing happened

apart from glitches - i dont like posting no more

even up to a few hours ago i posted a free film - within a MINUTE someone had voted cold - so i took link off - just ot worth it

shame really as there are some super people on here with which i did like to share a good deal

Original Poster

I always enjoyed your deals Holly, and always voted hot, even if there weren't any tickets in my area. You were the free cinema Queen!!!

I used to post free cinema tickets when I found them, but got fed up of the cold votes too, whats the point??

just for you, although i am sure there will be a good reason for this not being a dupe

holly100,

If you think some reports are not being actioned, please report again. We do review all reports and always aim to remove when it's clearly a duplicated thread.

As for cold voters, if the deal is deemed popular enough then the cold voters should have minimal impact. If your post helps one member then consider it a worthwhile effort. Thanks again for all your threads.

Thanks, there seems to be an hours difference, with the 'deal' thread being the latter. We don't monitor all misc threads and indeed I'm not aware of any reports from the OP or other members reporting it as a dupe. I can see that the 'deal' contains a lot more information than the original misc thread which is merely an image post. The 'deal' also contains the same image but I see the OP has at least attempted to credit that it wasn't his original thread.

Bottom line is that if it was placed in deals 1st time around, the earlier post would have stood or, had we been aware then the decision to move the misc thread could have been taken a lot earlier.

lmfao what you mean is it didnt involve DLM, shock horror, not

I always forget to look in freebies for the films Holly,i know you did a sterling job there though.

If you ever feel like dropping me a pm if there's any in Manc i'll defo appreciate it

Holly thanks so much - just got 4 tickets for Braehead - will pass link on

Re the example you give sassie, is it not possible that both were spin offs from
this thread about 1phone 4s

Scrivs does say that he was prompted by the deal being mentioned in another thread. Massmail also says 'It deserves a thread of its own'. Perhaps those two members could enlighten us.

Either way, I feel it is a completely and utterly different case.

Holly, you are a top HUKD contributor. I agree with you that common courtesy has gone pretty much out of the window but please keep on posting your threads.

I am hoping that once the report/spam system is fit for purpose that we will get back to rubbing along adequately.
