Topic Wiki

HTs have been last updated on 2/11/19.

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.

If it's on the MS it will eventually be added when I search for someone's HTs, but you can post here to make sure that it's added.
If the HT is on DDMS then you just need to link to the DDMS post, not the DDF post.
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.

But that's the question. if its on DDMS, and you manually go through it when you update the HTs, then why is it necessary to also post on on DDF? isn't it redundant?

right, but if you're NOT missing the HT on MS then it should be assumed that you don't have to post the claim on this thread and it will get added automatically? CMIIW
Nope, don't assume. JJ never credits your ht count, only dan seems to have the power.
 And there's no system in place yet to count all your ht from the ms, so until that happens you need to post the ms or the ddf link. And the wiki says the same and so did dan mention that multiple times when he was thinking of adding all these features to the new ddms.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
