I actually think some people are here to return the favor of others posting a good deal. That's why I was looking at the FAQs when I was brand new, because I was grateful for the deals and wanted to encourage other people to keep posting by hopefully posting something useful. Then I found out I could make money, score! :)
But, definitely, new people need to understand that a thumbs down is like saying "I don't like this deal"/"This is a bad deal."
But what may be a bad deal for you may be a good deal to some one else, If you have a dog then a deal on food is great, if you didn't have one you would not understand if it was a good deal or not. Deals a perception of ones taste. What you may hate I may love
@encorez, that would be a good time to thumb down. In this post, I was referring to when people thumb down a great deal that just ran out before they got to it.
But, definitely, I see a ton of just average deals cropping up today that I was adding a discount to and just gave up. That poster is still adding more deals without that coupon code, ugh. I still keep in mind that if someone was already planning on buying x item, a small price drop might be a big deal. Or someone might have a giftcard s/he wants to spend before losing it.
@catchersmom, I agree. I did edit a bunch of that user's deals so s/he could see, at the very least that the deal posted was not as good as it could get and I commented on a deal. I know that a comment will be noted at the top of the dealsplus.com page so I did try to inform this individual. I am certainly not ridiculing the person! I also saw there is no place to message someone, that would make the most sense.
Oh I never said, But lately on here it has been nothing but a grip session, a lot of it is so uncalled for, I am sure some of my deals are not the greatest all the time, but they still are deals, May not be what everyone is looking for, But they are still deals, Let me ask you to some of you drive around to save a penny in gas. The old adage a penny saved is a penny earned. I post on several day's a lot of deals, and then others not many. I am not greedy nor to I just post to post. Some people who have responded to these threads do not even post and have not in months
Oh, it's so hard to tell who what comments are directed to w/o good ol' nonverbals. That, and although a deal may not be the best, sometimes just the coupon code shared can be really helpful.
I do appreciate deals that you referred to that are good but maybe not the best b/c sometimes I just need that item anyways. It's just that posting more than 10 mediocre deals from the same site within a couple of hours does not seem like what this site is about, but we'll see if our noob comes around. It seems like a lot of work to do so I doubt anyone could keep that up!
Too bad about the gripe thing on ask & answer, just look how far off topic this whole page got, lol!
