Next time... if you can try updating it to bring it back on the front page, it won't be considered a duplicate then. You may not get the full credit for updating it, but, I think you get something. If anything, for commenting on it, and the plusses go to the original poster, I believe.

You are suppose to update it instead of making a new post and you will get half credit and it will show up as deal update but if it has been over a year you will get full credit and it will show up as a regular deal even though the other persons picture will show under yours

@fluffy - I think most of us would agree with what you said.
I can maybe see giving 1/2 credit for 1 month after you posted the deal, but that's it.
Otherwise, it promotes posting every item you can (even if it's not a deal), hoping that it eventually goes on sale and is edited. Then you get half credit.
