Topic Wiki

HTs have been last updated on 5/18/20.

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.

Showing 14 using my sooper secret HT counter.
Aha. Wasn't aware of the sooper secret counter. I guess I'm at 14 after all

HT numbers are based on the searching the site for everyone's name. If there are any posts missing your name please let me know.
And no HT for ads :)

Ok, so then can you adjust it to 63?
Guess my name wasn't added to one when the deal got posted on MS... (not sure which one)

Thanks!

And no HT for ads :)

I posted that deal well before the ad went up... Just saying

Added, but if you find it let me know as we're going to have this issue every time otherwise.
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.

That doesn't qualify. The deal you posted wouldn't have been posted by itself.

Which means we need to post at 50 seconds or so past the minute... No uncertainty then.

Up to how long does one qualify for had tip after a repost on the main site.

Meaning if a product sold for $100 and then a month later it's sold for $90 and it's posted on the main site does that qualify for had tip or is there a certain amount of money it has to decrease by in order to qualify for a hat tip? if it's within a month of posting or is it a month that has to be passed in order for it to be a qualified ht?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I don't believe there are official rules and regulations here. My guess is Dan and JJ will use their discretion case by case, unless they specify something definitive now.

  • 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.
