Getting Reported

Ask a Question

Anyone else keep getting reported on everything they share. My links to great finds such as comps were correct and the description was clear and all the other information was correct. Anyone else keep getting all their stuff reported and removed for no reason.

chelseastevens1 There are some sites that the Team don't accept comps from. What was the wording on the notification you received? Have a think and try to remember the names of the comp sites - if they seem legit it may be worth contacting the Team on the help form. (blue banner - more - contact us) One thing to remember is that hundreds of posts come in within minutes of each other - it could simply be a duplicate. Having said all that - I had a freebie reported as expired yesterday after only being put up for a hour or so, which it wasn't so don't take it personally.

Lol I literally had about 5 in a row yesterday, after I shared some competitions and some other bits, I was thinking wow is someone just going through all my posts and reporting every single thing they find!! I don’t mind when it’s duplicate but some things have been unfair

The same exact same thing happen to me that's why I was thinking my stuff was getting reported as I was getting notifications every two minutes that my stuff was being taken down

I keep trying reported and on recent posts as well. I upload a picture and write up a nice description. I know that people report things so that they can get points. Today, for example, i just posted a freebie and got reported that i don't have a picture when there is!

This sure seems like an ongoing problem and while the staff can see who makes those false reports, it looks like it's not working.

Hey guys 🙂 Sorry if you feel any of your posts have been removed unfairly.

Hopefully most of the time the notification provides a reason as to why a post was removed.

Sometimes there's a specific reason but our mentors cannot let you know as the system only has a limited number of reasons (they can't currently send a custom message unfortunately) and so you get a generic "please see the guidelines message". We're working to improve this once the app is live 👍

If you ever feel we've made a mistake please do drop us a message with our contact form (please give a clear indication as to which post you're talking about otherwise it can be difficult for us to help) and we can look into it and clear it up for you!

Yes one of mine got reported today because the price had increased by 3p! Anyway I edited with the correct price and stated that the price dies keep fluctuating. People are very petty. If I see one that had had a price increase, I usually leave a message telling them the price change, that way they can edit it before somebody decides to be petty and report it for going up or down a few pence.

AndieEstelle You had me worried there with that comment 🤣 - I was the one who commented that it had gone down and what a good deal it was but just for the record the report wasn't mine.

This has happened to me a lot these last few days when i've found and shared stuff and funny how its always the same person who's got their competition up 5 minutes after my same one got removed for being a copy

Coincidence i think not

chelseastevens1 It is probably a regular, serious comper that notices duplicates and reports. I share the comps but enter very few so It's frustrating to find my comp cancelled the next day. I think it happens because the first poster doesn't copy the wording exactly or doesn't put in all the details. The 'bots probably don't recognise the second comp is the same as already posted. It's happened to me quite a bit recently but when I check the first comp I see that mine was a full description with a verbatim heading. (I also have a serial reporter of expired comps that aren't.......😜 ) Deep breaths.
