Yours is clearly the better post. Can you not secure the deal with just the title/basics, then fill the details later? It does seem unfair to punish you for your time invested and a better looking deal, but it's probably more unfair to take it away from the person who posted it first. A lot of deals could simply be rewritten and taken away based on added details and/or presentation. I'm glad I'm just a spectator.

To be clear this has nothing to do with Front page,my gripe is that in general this happens all the time,I am not saying you don't post good deals,it's that you expected me to expire mine when you clearly knew it was a better post and that considering the time put into that I was working on it when you posted yours,it would have been a good jesture of faith and character on your part.
Also the fact that you are throwing around your User Name here and on other posts clearly is self serving.
P.S.95% of what I post is from my iPad,a littler harder at times,yes,but it can still be done.
Looks like the other one is gone now. Did mods eliminate it after you posted this?
Yours is the better post BY FAR and has a ton of info, so of course, I think you should be the one getting credit. You took the time to go into depth, include links, etc. You deserve credit.

Are you positive the other user didn't post the details and the mods/site didn't just not post them? I say this because there has been multiple occasions I put in a lot of time and details, submit the deal (says needs mod approval) then the deal posts without any details THEN I find someone else has posted the same deal AFTER me and I'm not getting the credit...
Whole thing is a sticky situation.

Absolutely, yours should have been the one to get the go-ahead. I get a lot of the "dupe deal" comments from him too, but never any other comments..... weird. Some people I guess are very proprietary over their stuff, no matter if it only took them 3 seconds to put in on here. It was obvious from the plusses that yours was the better deal. I'm sure the DP mods appreciate the time you always take to make sure you're following the rules and posting complete details on your deals. I know I do. :) Especially on an I-Pad, that's dedication!!!!
