Topic Wiki

Q: I had deals posted to the main site, why do I have a zero?

A: It's not updated automatically, post a link to your deal on the forum(*), the DDMS link, and the number HT it should be and Dan will update it.

(*)If your HT is already in the DDMS post there's no need to link to the forum thread.


Hat tips are not awarded for:
-Amazon deals of the day.(GBD - Gold Box Deals)
-B&H deal zone
-Credit card deals.
-Deals that are only part of a roundup.
-Deals that were posted as part of a master thread when they belong in a new thread.
-Deals posted in the following boards: SH, GD, TT, TDR, JS, or GFST.
-Back in stock updates.
-Updates to old post. (DDMS Updates, however DDF Updates do receive)
-Recurring sales such as 7/11 slurpee day, Rita's 1st day of spring, Nordstrom half yearly sales, Flying Blue Promos, IHG Pointsbreaks, etc

Ineligible Nordstrom sales:
1 Anniversary sale
2 Half Yearly sales
4 Seasonal clearance sales

HT has always gone to who told me or posted first.
That includes but not limited to DDF, DDMS Comments, Facebook & E-mail.


Please do not bump your request if submitted in the past 72 hours. 4-5 Business Days During Holiday Season.

Hat Tip leaderboard here. Feel free to update.                                                                                      Limit of 1 HT Per DDMS Post Per User.   For Full Terms and Conditions

Status for posting deals that are posted to main site?
« on: January 11, 2013, 01:46:44 AM »
I was just thinking...what the loam thought of giving members status for posting deals which get posted on the main site. I think it would be a good way to encourage more deals to be posted. It also is strong metric of a posters credibility. What do you think?
A man you wouldn't for a second in your personal life tolerate...a bully...really a man of genuinely bad character...

Lol, it actually pulled from the old Kudos that we used to have on DDF except that I renamed it and made it so that only I can give people credits.
I've disabled it until BAHayman can delete out the cache from it.
