Topic Wiki

HTs have been last updated on 2/11/20.

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 updates.
-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

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.

A deal like yours which comes and goes usally doesn't get a ht for each time it becomes alive.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

An update on the color of the table or price of the OP item would qualify for an HT?
any update doesn't qualify

as of now....

There is some confusion

There is 2 Updates.

DDF Updates vs. DDMS Updates.

DDF Updates
He was the source of the Deal
He Updated a DDF Post.
The original price was not good enough for a DDMS
That Update does get a HT if the post was made because of him.

DDMS Updates
Once a DDMS is posted any update AFTER that point does not warrant a 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.
