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.

Is there anyway to add a feature to click on your HT number and see all the posts you got credit for?

Credited, though technically deals like this need their own thread.
How is it possible that his HT wasnt counted if his HT was on linked to his post?

It was only linked in the last few minutes. Was not there before.

Should be updated now, thanks for your patience!

Couple of comments:
-You can see the last HT update int he Wiki. No need to guess.
-If there is no HT written on DDMS, please post the DDMS and DDF link.
-If there is a HT written on DDMS but it wasn't counted, just post the DDMS link in this thread, no need for the DDF link in that case.

Thanks.. I'm missing one though....

I was up to date before these 4:

We've had this same issue in the past... There must be one old one without my name on DDMS.

Not sure which one it is, but i was always up to date so i know 71 is accurate.

Thats why i quote all the posts in one message as i go along...
