What's the matter?
twilliams75 Mar 20, 2007
Let me start by thanking Dealsplus for this great prize. I joined a little over a month ago and have spent probably around 10-12 hours on their site. Thats not a bad price to pay for a Zune. Everyone knows what the Zune looks like I would think but here are some pics anyway of how it arrived. Here is the original box it came in. It shipped straight from amazon. This is the box with the Zune in it. Under the side panels are the headphones and sync cable. Here is the actual Zune itself. I thought I should mention some installation notes since alot of people are having problems with it. Step 1- Insert CD. Setup started at 10:12 Download updates finished at 10:17 Download firmware finished at 10:19 Step 2- Connect Zune 10:24 Create Account 10:29 10:31 Complete Installation Total time- 19 minutes I did have some problems getting Windows to actually recognize the Zune. After a reboot and connecting it to another USB port, it worked fine. The Zune came with 27.7 gb free due to the songs, videos, and pictures already on it. The zune software is very easy to use if you are familiar with Windows Media Player 11. It looks almost identical. All in all, very happy with my choice of the Zune over the Ipod. The picture looks awesome. I can;t give any real battery statistics due to lack of use so far. Hope this helps any future winners or anyone purchasing a video mp3 player. Once again, Thanks very much to Dealsplus. Keep up the great work with an awesome site.

I'm a bit confused about the directions on how to win. When it says, "If you win, you have to put a real photo of yourself on your profile for at least 2 days (all entrants must be 14 years of age or older and legal residents of the United States). City & State also should be announced here", does that mean that we state our city and state here in this thread, in our profile, or somewhere else? If the moderators mean for us to tell our city and state in this thread, then as far as I'm aware, mattg52391 would be the automatic winner, since he's the only one who actually posted this information... lol But I doubt that the DealsPlus moderators would allow this to happen. I just hope that they will clarify for the next giveaway, seeing as how it's a bit late to ask for this information now.

Well if they wanted our city and state, they would have said something since no one has replied. I think they are just saying that the winner's location will show up, as sort of legal issue wise. Itll be the same as it has been, im pretty sure, just need to be legally correct about everything they are doing

phailure2 Mar 07, 2007
My comments score just went down 30 because of someone's minus spree, but I'd never thought it possible for someone's score to go so far down so quickly! It seems as if someone or some people really don't want your score to go up, and from my perspective, you're simply trying to help and contribute and doing nothing to hurt or insult others, but still you get multiple minuses. I'm glad to hear that you don't care about your comments score; it's just numbers anyway. I just wish that I could say the same thing for me. And for the moderators, I don't think they let your comments score affect you as an individual, since it's obvious that you're not doing much of anything wrong, and they even made you level 5 because of how much you're helping -- not because of other people's opinions on you.

The person who flagged this as a deal deal is TECHNICALLY correct, since it is a dead deal. I had lot of people asking me what a dead deal was. So for people who dont know, it means the deal is EXPIRED. This can be due to out of stock, rebate is over, or other things. Now dont go flagging around every expired deal as a dead deal, because that is already known. Just trying to help out for those who dont know.

Well you have to understand that these are just noobs who don't know any better. Flamin is right, they are technically correct, this is a dead deal. There is no price for it, so that doesn't come into play. The Giveaways are special, so you also gotta have some special circumstances for them. Of course, flagging isn't really bad, it doesn't hurt rep or your score or anything, its just there to alert the mods that something is wrong.

I'm guessing the reason for flagging the giveaway as a "Dead Deal" would be because someone got a bit tired of waiting and bored and they just needed something to do... Just wanted to rebel, I guess? Sounds like something I would do when I get really impatient... By the way... I heard the mints at Olive Garden are nice too... or maybe I'm just crazy... I vaguely recall someone telling me that they took a handful of mints home, and seeing as how you took breadsticks home (I think... I don't know if you're joking or not, although I see why you would do it), did you consider taking mints too? lol

You can upload any of your pictures to a file hosting site such as photobucket. Then copy the [IMG] tag and paste it into the comment box. Under the comments box, change comments to embedded video/photo. After the moderators check, they'll post the picture up for you.

Very bad way to start your reputation here in this community. Language like that is frowned upon, and you have a pretty cool reference, you don't want to bring him down as well. Play nicely.

All of you need to be proud about the way you look. ;) It's just a picture, haha, no need to be paranoid, it's only for trust and confirmation of who you are... and possibly for fun too! I wouldn't mind showing my crazy happy face when I win something big!

It's most likely required for you to show a picture of yourself to the moderators before they send the giveaway item to you to be sure of your identity. It may not be the most effective way to do it, but it slims down a bit on the amount of duplicate accounts. For example, if one of somebody's accounts wins, and then another one of his accounts wins later in the future, and the pictures of the "two" winners are the same or similar, then this would identify the accounts as cheaters. However, I think a more effective way of showing a picture identity would be when the winner receives the e-mail congratulating and asking the individual for his address. So, that way, the person can include his identity, his address, and his choice for what he wants (Zune or iPod, or color of iPod, etc.).

I think this idea of a real photo of yourself is interesting. It would be nice to see what the winner looks like. Besides, with the size of these avatars, you can't really show a detailed picture, just a general look of who you are. If some people are worried about posting what they look like over the internet, just remember, these avatars are pretty small. To clarify everyone else's questions, "A real photo of yourself" is self explanatory. IF YOU WIN, change your profile picture to a picture of yourself. Any picture of yourself will do, it doesn't matter where or when. I think this is just something new and interesting that could be fun. But that's just my opinion. How does everyone else feel about it?

I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want people to do the same thing as they did with Vin (the plus/minus opinion system)... haha. But, in reference to your "it doesn't matter where or when", it doesn't matter where, I agree with you on that, but since the rules say that you must be at least the age of 14 to enter the giveaway, I'd say that the picture of you must be at least when you were 14, however it might be on the safer side to be a more recent picture so that there will be less doubt of your age. The only problem with the pictures of the winners would be that if someone didn't want to show their face, they could simply Google search any picture and give that as their identity, and that would be a negative thing. There are some faults and quirks in how DealsPlus works as of now, but remember that it's just a BETA for now, hence the grayed out "BETA" in the DealsPlus banner/logo on the top left of every page.

Or maybe, like phailure hinted at, they are using your picture to verify if you are over the age of 14.

This site isn't private, as in meaning you have to sign into to reach user profiles, so i would not like to display my picture online in the public.

I think mostly the user community would see it. It's not like a random visitor would care what you look like. As for displaying pictures in public, if you have a myspace, a xanga, or a facebook, you are already putting up a lot of pictures for anyone to see. Perhaps Vin could put a preference on your profile, say if you wanted to let others see or only friends. That way, you could control who gets to see it. Or just limit it to DealsPlus users that have registered. Just a thought.

I honestly have no problem in showing my actual picture. I think it gives a nice sense of identity to everyone. Like when I think of Hoboto, I just think of a bear, or when I thinking of pennyfan, I think of the soldout sign, not really their face. So if we really did see their picture, it would help us just think of them better. Also, like phailure said, it could identify your identity, but you can always google up an image. So I really can't figure out the use of this, besides that it can help us and Dealsplus identify the person.
