How long do I make money off my deal post?
If you post a new deal that is not a duplicate, you will earn $3.00/1,000 views until another user updates your deal and is approved by a dealsplus moderator to start sharing earnings. Once that user has been approved, the deal will be updated and you will each earn $1.50/1,000 views. However, once a second update is made by yet another user, from that point on only the two most recent updaters will continue to earn $1.50/1,000 views, and the original poster will no longer make money off the post.
After a year, if your deal has not been updated or you are still sharing earnings with another user, you will stop earning money on that deal.

I believe it depends on what is updated. So minor updates such as title updates won't give you credit.

I'd like to see a mod answer this.

Seems you can get the credits if someone update your deals, but if you update others deal,you cannot get the credits, but you can get the wide social network.

@Rosaura1234 actually both the original poster and the person who updates get half credit for the update but if the post is over a year old only the updater gets credit.... That only happens if you made a substantial change and the mods decide if your change warrants credit... If you update a deal and you think you should be getting credit it dosent hurt to ask a mod why you didn't get the credit...

There is a difference between editing a deal and getting MM credit for it. Your username and avatar will show up if you accurately edited a post (regardless of price drop).

You get MM credit when you add an appropriate amount of value to the offer (price drop, free item with purchase, free shipping, return to lowest historical price, etc.). A price drop does not guarantee credit however. Many factors are considered when approving for MM credit.

Disappointed that we get no credit at all for a good update that goes FrontPage. I posted one that returned to the lowest historical price, with 2 extra perks. I think that if your update is the reason that the deal goes frontpage again, you should get some credit. Otherwise, it's just not worth the effort.
