New users are restricted from posting for 24 hours due to an influx of SPAM related posts.
If you have a very good deal and you must post it right now, you can use the Talk with a Moderator forum to request an override.
Also note that some overseas visitors will have longer cool-down period to reduce SPAM.
You can not remove the deal yourself. Please hit the report button and a moderator will assist in removing it for you. Please note that if the deal is popular or if the deal has important value regarding discussions, it may not be removed.
You can not remove a comment yourself. Please hit the report button and a moderator will assist in removing it for you.
Removal of deals generally occur if the deal is:
- A duplicate (deal has been posted recently)
- SPAM or an advertisement for the store instead of a deal.
- Better suited to the forums (e.g. Selling or swapping request, competitions)
- Not available to Australia (Retailer can't ship to Australia.)
- Listing issue (e.g. Lack of ABN for eBay deal, referrals for group buy sites.)
- Banned items (e.g. Adult products, gambling.)
- Sockpuppeting/Meatpuppeting (Companies falsely pretending to be customers.)
Removal of deals can only be done by moderators and not by users. Please use the report button for any removal requests.
Additionally, if enough people negative vote a deal, the post is hidden from the new deals page. You can still access the deal if you know the direct URL.
The new deals page has all the latest deals that have been submitted by users. They are displayed in order from most recently published. However, when a deal becomes popular (reaches a threshold based of votes), it is moved to the Front page. The number of positive votes to push a deal to the front page changes based on the sites popularity and other factors. However, you can override the settings by
- Go to the New Deals page.
- Click on “Preference” just under the title.
- Adjust the “Minimum Votes” value.
