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.

I should have called Samsung and had it killed before Shabbos was over.  ;)
Now that would be pure anti semitism. :)

It would be like not offering cash refunds to certain zip codes.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

It's always been known that HTs don't add to your credibility on DDF. Little do people know that it can actually subtract.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

You are killing me. Should I expect Hitler to be brought into this?  :)
No. I don't think he's killing you because your not Aryan.
I'm not who you think I am.

Great deal whether it will be honored or not!

And anyone who argues
Either didn't get the deal or was frustrated how hard it was!

But give credit when credits due.

And lay off the hate messages

Let me try and be serious for a minute. How is it a great deal when it is not honored?

That might be true but that doesn't make it a great deal.

If it's not honored, it's not a deal.

If it would've been honored and now it won't be, a great deal was turned into a non deal. Hence the suggestion of a negative hat tip.

Give credit where credit is due, after all.


(Disclaimer: I am in no way saying this shouldn't have been posted; that posting this killed it; or that this would've been been honored otherwise. I'm just explaining the concept.)

It would be a interesting idea.... not a negative just be retracted.

If he used the term "less is more" I would have demanded a HT.  :)

I think the HT went to CV. He seems to have posted it before you.

The code lasted for a surprisingly long time, they probably won't ship regardless.
