Topic Wiki

HTs have been last updated on 6/14/19.

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.

Huh, what this time?
It's called a master thread for all deals to be posted there. Not that it would have made a difference today anyway with the hundreds of new topics being started.
Good deals need new threads.

Do you really want all the examples pointed out of non new thread, posted deals? Many in the laptop thread alone, plus think of Groupon thread, drones thread in tech talk and while we are at it banff thread lol ;) - don't want to minimize those at all, though laptop deals thread is a viewed master thread for all deals to be posted in imo.

That's true.
your right. Just depends on IF he sees it.
If he saw it through your post you'll get the HT as SF did yesterday or MYI etc. if he comes across it himself you won't. New Thread Guarantees he will see it.

This should HT should have been credited to me
Take a look at this one I didn't get credit because it wasn't in a New Thread and the title wasn't clear enough to make JJ or Dan look in the thread for a new post.

Point taken. On the same note, new threads guarantee plenty extra clutter and pages to go through if you weren't logged in for just a bit. Laptop deals is a laptop deal thread as the title would suggest, similar to how rare award space is for that too, and a new thread is not opened each time an airline makes inventory avail.

I agree I hate all the new threads but I'm guilty for opening up tons of them. ex. Jet Suite Availability if there is a post in that thread everyone is looking inside. if there is a post in the laptop thread I'm rarely looking every time theres a new post EVEN if i'm in the market for a laptop.

Some threads are riskier to post in more than others. I think it has to do with how much other banter is in the thread as well.
the more banter the less people check it. the more deals and less banter the more people will check the thread.

I want to publicly apologize to anyone who thinks I was challenging their attempts to getting HT's.
Being on DDF you become numb sometimes about how your comments could be read.

My comments were only meant to clarify why a member was not getting the HT,
through explaining the HT Rules.
Based on my own past experiences of NOT getting Ht's & hopefully educating them to gain more HT's in the future.

Good Luck to All getting to 100 HT's
I'll be waiting for you on the other side...

  • 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.

Posted this 2 weeks ago, but credit went to someone else today

The deal you posted died almost right away. So it never made the mainsite, and then the same deal came back, but I only knew about it because myi posted it so he gets the HT.

If someone posts a Macbook for $500 on Amazon today and it dies, if the same deal comes back in a year from now they obviously wouldn't get a HT for it, this is the same idea.

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.
