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.

Was the availability on Amazon added AFTER my post (comment 10)? HT? :)


http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/66990#comments This makes it 17, no? Unless the camera post above gives me 18 ;)
Bump :-)

Huh? The original deal was the Amazon link.

Is that the rule? I always thought making new threads was frowned upon.

while not technically a deal
deals don't belong in master threads.
he has mentioned before about not liking master threads. though people here are very antsy about that

Frowned upon by Ddfers but not by Dan, it makes his job harder.
I guess you have to know for what.

New legitimate deals almost always deserve their own threads.

Historically posts that are just one part of a roundup did not get HT's.

Why not create one thread for all "B&H Daily Deals" instead of opening every day a few new ones?

  • 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.

TBH, it's an interesting question now that I see it.
But from your thread I had no idea that ebay was offering 5x sitewide, though technically, it's in your post.

Sorry, THIS should be 17:
