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.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I am really tempted to make these my signature.

Should get a minus HT.  >:(  :P
...and subtract HT for wasting members time.  :)

@JTZ How do you like your crow done?

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.

Should have been a new thread. I found the deal on DDFB, not buried in that thread.
And TPG gave you the HT, nice. Is he gonna share rhe revenue too?
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

the title states Starwood Starpoints Transfer To Airline Miles Master Thread
surely that thread is also worthy to the level of a mass Facebook thread?

obviously now in retrospect i should have made a new thread

but posting in a  Master Thread vs. Facebook Master Thread
 is not the same as Master thread vs. Individual thread?
so maybe the rule doesn't apply here?

It's definitely a HIM, and he has a LONG resume here with a split personality disorder being born anew every couple months.

Good morning . I can't seem to find it now. Should I delete my post, because I am assuming that the post I saw has been deleted also?

No need to delete anything. Maybe the idiot will pop back up if they see this.  :)

Are you referring to this?
JTZ hasn't chimed in yet, I wonder what happened to all of his orders.
