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.

Looks like a mainsite comment posted before you http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/46905#comment-1188124
As there is no compensation or any loss on behalf of the DD team when these statuses are given, why be cheap on them? If 2 people posted it let them both have credit. The point of the statutes is to give people an incentive to alert the DD team to deals. DD team only gains financially and socially when deals are posted.

Who said there is no compensation?
I dropped a grand on a dinner that says otherwise.

That is not compensation, that is goodwill. Compensation would be per deal commissions or finders fee.  No compensation is needed here, many people are more then happy to post deals and are even happier when the DD team makes money on them. Recognition for the tips is nice and not being cheap on them is even nicer.

Just give Emkay a status count for his post.

Regardless of whether there is currently a defined compensation program or not (and there should be but the devil is in the details), there are rules.

The first person to post on DD/DDF gets the HT. I've given several hat tips to people who have a DDF account but commented on the main site to alert me of a deal.

  • 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.

Giving you the credit, but in the future deals belong in the deal forum.

I started the thread when the program was announced as well as gave a heads up that registration was opening. Can I at least get 3/4 of a HT? 😏
