Topic Wiki

HTs have been last updated on 9/6/23

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 "Deal of the Day".
-B&H deal zone.
-Discountmags sales
-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.
-Deals that are posted with a thread title that doesn't spell out the full deal
-Back in stock/alive again updates within 3 months of the last update
-Deals posted more than 3 months after a forum post
-Updates to old post.
-Recurring sales such as 7/11 slurpee day, Rita's 1st day of spring, Nordstrom Anniversary, half yearly or seasonal sales, Flying Blue Promos, IHG Pointsbreaks, etc

Limit of 1 HT Per DDMS Post Per User.   

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

There is no need to bump a request if it was made after the last updated date in this Wiki.

New Bump Rule: A bump counts if it's been 3 months since last post. Same applies for DDF, if someone posted it within the past 3 months they get the HT.

How did my HTs just go up to 2. It must have happened in the past 24 hours but I don't remember giving a new HT. Or did some old HT just make it to the main site?

That Porter main site deal is from 23 months before I joined DDF. How could it have come from me?

Maybe you aren't telling us something.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Are you insinuating that Dan tracks new usernames via old IP addresses? :o ::) :P

To my knowledge, I never posted at DDF under any other username. I don't think I even knew what DDF was in May of 2011.

To my knowledge...
What office are you running for? What is next, I don't remember?

I said "to my knowledge" because I want to be as honest as possible, not to play word games.

It would really, really surprise me if you told me that I actually did once post here with a different username, however, I couldn't promise that it's out of the realm of possibility. I didn't want to utter a falsehood, even unintentionally.
