Game On!

7 2
Regarding Dup posts, if somebody dup'd me, I let it go, thinking ok, maybe I didn't find their original, and I did submit a dup. But now I am getting mad, when CLEARLY my post was first (based on the submittal time) Somebody reposting the add, calling mine the duplicate and marking a thumbs down on my ad. Well folks game on. I will now start commenting on the ones that are dup's of mine and hitting thumbs down. Something I didn't do before, but now will be forced to...ugh.....

I thought this post was about the start of the baseball season :) GO RED SOX!!!!Anyway this duplicate thing has gotten out of hand!! I agree. This site was so much fun years ago, now I feel I have to fight for my life to keep a deal I took time to find safe from someone. Just sad.

i also thought this post was about baseball....hmm..guess not..

usually when someone dups me, i'll just flag it and then write in the comments that it's a dup with a link to my original post..

so much drama nowadays...hug it out, people.

My computer must be different form some of those out there because when someone gives me thumbs down or dups a deal it fails to issue me a jolt of pain or hurt. Lucky me!

...or maybe it's the drugs...

I got "duplicate deal message" while trying to post few deals,went back posted another fresh one.Huh~ tiring.

Lots of times using search doesn't come up with any posted deal. Mostly it will get caught when trying to post, thankfully, but sometimes it slips through even if you've searched beforehand. Unless its a poster who habitually submits dupes, I can understand how it happens accidentally. But, flagging the deal, & putting the original link in the comments is the best way to handle it. As for the ones who are doing it uncontrollably... I hope mods are aware & alert to help us out

I've even seen a duplicate deal that was posted by the same person (or their minion) earlier in the same day! How do you forget your own deal in a matter of hours?

Is there an easy way to sort to see who posted first? I feel like I am plussing or looking at the same deals multiple times and it is hard to be fair to those I follow or who legitimately posted the deal.

search the deal in the search bar on the top of the website.
