Thanks, though that automatically jumps to my bitching

Is thread from the top.

Can't we hit the spam button if it'd a duplicate?

its gone now

Its partly down to the fault of the members. Many will post in the thread that its a duplicate but then don't bother to spam it. If they don't spam it or report it to the Mods then it will stay there. The Mods are not omnipresent and can't read every single thread. What baffles me is that people vote it cold because its a duplicate (or even worse expire it) instead of spamming.

Part of this reluctance to spam is probably due to the that if a post is immediately spammed then the OP doesn't get a chance to read the comment that its a duplicate. Is there anyway that the OP can get an automated PM to say their post has been spammed and this is probably because its a duplicate?

I think there may be very rare occasions when they should be allowed to stay. If the duplicate thread contains useful information that add to the deal (which isn't present in the original) then it should stay (especially as they cannot merge deal threads).

yeah - click the bloomin' SPAM button. Noobs just expire it which is pointless.

there is also this stupid rule that you can re-post a deal if its over a month old.

Thats one way of getting easy rep- just re-post all the hottest deals from a month ago. I always vote these cold though

Agree completely, oh and I did spam it

what bugs me is when someone expires them rather than spam and then its unexpired for some random reason

if people dont realise that you have to click the 'spam' button cos its a duplicate.......
would it not be better to add a new button titled 'duplicate'? this would then indicate to the op that it was dealt with as a duplicate?
surely this would improve the matter.:)

How do you know I spammed it? Oh I see you caught it before it dissappeared?

Yeah I did spam it. I don't know whether they are connected, but I have a voting power of 8 degrees, so not sure why my spamage didn't work?

I would have thought both you and Csiman spamming would be enough for it to disappear tbh

i thought it needed 3 member to spam it before it disappeared

2 I thought :?

I haven't marked a deal as spam in a while and was wondering why this one didn't disappear...

...after I hit the spam button yesterday. Now I know that it needs more than one "vote" it makes sense
