Topic Wiki

HTs have been last updated on 3/5/19.

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.

See above
First of all thank you.

Secondly,
How so? You’ve had to even include the ones where your name was mentioned on the bottom of the post on DDMS?
Quote from wiki:
“It's not updated automatically...

However, there is need to link to DDMS.

3: for my first ht I waited until the wiki said it was updated. My account didn’t show the ht, so I posted it here. I got it right afterwards.

Is that how you understand it? I just figured it meant that the system recognizes your name and will automatically give you the HT. As opposed to other posts where it does not have your name?

Was the HT count just fully updated? or is it being done in pieces, cuz I believe I'm missing a few, though I could be wrong of course....?

It's a manual process. Should be correct now.
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 still doesn't explain the wiki, it says you need to post the ddms post to claim your HT, now should you be missing the HT on the MS, then you would be required to post the MS and the ddf link.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

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
