under the coupon it says "gonnagettaviper shared 5 days ago", not 2 hours ago

I guess this deal was posted 5 days ago too, but the front page says 2 hours ago. So, how do I find out which is the dupelicate?
yup, you beat me to saying that by less then a minute. so which is the dupe?
I don't want to flag his if mine is the dupe. So how do I find out?
According to our records you posted the deal at 01/28/11 08:14
and gonnagettaviper posted the deal on 01/27 13:24

Thanks. It can be a bit confusing as there is no timestamp on our end. atleast nothing that accurate. It was also confusing that the front paged deal shows it was posted 2 hours ago, but now I assume that it hit the front page 2 hours ago and was not posted 2 hours ago as once you click on the link it shows gonnagettaviper posted the deal 5 days ago.
The system is not very consistent at notifying posters when a deal is a duplicate. I searched for mine before I posted and was surprised to see it had not already been posted.
FYI, Dealsplus created the frontpage "deal", not me. It links to the Dealsplus Panda Express coupon page, where currently, my coupon post is the only nonexpired, nonduplicate deal.
Sometimes I think this place is mystical. Who, other than the mods/admins, knows how it all works?!

I tried posting a couple of deals last night that were already out there and got a duplicate posting message when I tried to submit.

I've had an Arby's coupon that I submitted to the Coupons section show up on the front page under Deals before also. Sometimes the system selects them on its own, I can vouch for that.
I'm not holding my breath for better duplication detection though. The system is poor enough at detecting 2 of the same item at the same (or mostly the same) URL both posted under "Deals." I'll be pleasantly surprised if it can get to a point where it verifies against the Coupon and the Deals databases before giving the green light to a new poster...
