Makes you wonder who they want to hide it from...my guess is THEIR bosses

I guess Ramana is pissed off at some users here :) I even know their names but will not disclose it!

Its nice to see someone else stand up and tell the truth some times.

Most of the times i am pissed off by the moderators. I provide bunch
of examples with screen shots in my last Ask & share post(and it got buried by moderators). I don't understand why they are not follow the same rules for all the users. And why they are doing so favoritism/supporting to the selected user(s)(this is not only my opinion.. find other posts and you will find similar examples).
Deals post is not my profession. I have a job and family. I can't spend 17 hours(5AM - 11PM) every Day & 365 days(no weekends, no
holidays) and posting deals/coupons in dealsplus.com. Probability That's they are supporting Selected Users who do this thing.

@ramana_forums I hear you. But it is very simple answer - these uses who copy/paste deals to DP site are bringing more traffic so DP can make more money. Let's say RagingWookie stops posting deals (and when I say stop posting, I mean that all users who use that account suddenly stop) - moderators will have to copy/paste deals for SD themselves. I know that for a fact as I saw it happened before. So they have 2-3 high rated / high earn money makers who copy / paste deals. I used to do that too. But what I do now is I SEARCH DEALS MYSELF and post it here first and then post it on SD site as well. BTW my username there is SJSFAN You can see that I am very active user there. I have full time job too and do this for fun. Anyway, there is nothing you can do about it. So just relax, take a deep breath and keep posting deals.

Your absolutely right. They need a human being(machine even can't work 17 hours a day?) who copy/paste deals 17 hours a day and 365 days in year(no weekends, no holidays). That's why they are doing favoritism to Selected Users.
I am wondering, Slickdeals will not pay for posing deals. Even-though that's first place where all the users post all good deals and coupons. If they offer just like dealspl MM program.. Just Imagine......

Theres no disputing SD is the king. For one simple reason. Users have the ability to moderate what gets buried and what doesnt by voting on it. Until DP has that ability its always going to be in 2nd place.

I think they are not, for slickdeas is already perfect, why need another ?

Yeah, I noticed that too. The sites look a like so much I thought it's the same or a sister site :)

Epic clarification. :-)

i think what ramana is asking for is Consistency by the moderators. "exclusive coupons" from other sites are NOT allowed EVER - yet a few "privileged" people ARE allowed to use them.

There is also a message from an administrator in here somewhere regarding rules when posting and i believe the comment was something like "copying deals word for word directly from other sites is forbidden and will result in up to getting your account banned". I dont have a problem with swiping deals from other sites. thats how they get around. But I have a problem with people taking EVERY deal from other sites with no regard if its really a deal or not. If I was a mod here I swear to god if I saw someone post a deal here from SD or another site that was negatively rated on that site they would get their account shut down immediately. There is no reason for that other than them blatantly being in it just for the money makers. IMO the biggest 3 rules in deal sites.
1. Do not ever, EVER call a store to see if they have an item on the sale price. Or worse yet if its a ridiculously low price such as a mistake or clearance item. Store workers will grab that stuff up and youll screw it up for everyone.
2. Do not copy someone else post word for word. The only reason that is even done is people are lazy and trying to slam in as many submissions as possible to make money.
3. DOnt repost GARBAGE deals. If a deal isnt a deal why would you share it. Maybe you dont know any better and didnt do a simply online price comparison. But most of time. Just like #2 its because people only care because they want to post as much trash as they can to make money.

@Acidbaby Why would you have a problem with price error verifications? If you are being paid to post ACCURATE deals, why cheat by posting , well, a lie that will get you mega views?
jmucha1202 (rep: 4.2k) posted Sep 15, 2013
Let me tell you. You go to a site like Slickdeals and tell everyone youre calling the store to verify a price they will ban you on the spot for being stupid.
Acidbaby (rep: 7k) posted Sep 15, 2013
Posting "price error deals" is a waste of the time since you will NEVER get the item. After the "BIG error" by 6PM, sites all include a line that basically states "errors will not be honored." With Amazon, it is better to wait until 8am CST before telling the world. Same with Newegg.

Wow. So maybe they are sister sites, why else would they allow other/competitor site codes to appear here repeatedly? I have not checked out the very much advertised slickdeals but maybe I should?!?!?!?

LMAO at the deleted post supporting the posting of coupons from other sites. You guys have some excellent moderators in this bunch.
Acidbaby (rep: 7k) posted Sep 22, 2013
probably, both slickdeals and dealsplus.com are alike, but dealsplus.com is better in all!

I wanted to start a thread with a deal o found on dibuu.com for hulu plus membership cheaper than on ebay and slickdeals suspended my account!, I guess if you do not pay them then you can not list a deal, means they have only deals they are paid for so there is plenty of many other and better deals online!
