Please - can the admin.... check posts quicker.

I posted three competitions which I searched for but didn't come up, to be told a day later they had already been shared!!!

Now, despite looking for them and not finding them, I didn't know they had been rejected till a day later.... so I lost the chance of putting more up yesterday, which is a great shame.

See what I don't get is, when it's been shared - it says.... "Sorry it seems this has already been shared"

So, you then CANNOT go further.

So if you can, and you can post it, how can they then take your points of you because how are you to know?

I know you do your best guys but, it would be cool if we had a quicker turnaround? Just a thought? Kelsey

I know the feeling. I post deals, vouchers and comps all the time never get told theyre already on the site, to have them removed, thwn when i search for the original theres nothing there. Its a shame ive lost ao many points.

Hi DannySpeed

The system may not identify duplicity for several reasons, it is not 100% and has some flaws, so there is the reporting system where other users can identify the duplicity and report the post. In addition, we are a small volunteer team for thousands of users and posts every day, being humanly impossible to check all posts.

https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/guidelines

Duplicate deals (first come, first served)

It wouldn’t be a very helpful place if the whole site was flooded with the same deal. Because of that we’ve agreed that duplicate deals are dealt with on a first-come-first-served basis. If you’re quick off the mark and spot the bargain first then you get to keep the points.

Thank you

Hi chelseaturpin

I wrote to you a long time ago, you can check it on this link:

https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/competitions/parajumpers-gobi-base-down-jacket-twitter

Title:

A good title answers three things: What is the deal, where is it and how much is the saving? For example, Trainer Clearance Sale at Nike, up to 99% off!

Many of your posts have been removed due to title, and as part of a small team, we are unable to edit all posts posted daily.

Another example:

Your post: Golfing Wales

What the users/guidelines expect: Win a fantastic golf break for 4 people OR Win a fantastic golf break for 4 people at Celtic Manor

I hope it makes sense.

Cheers

kikogpe No I agree it wouldn't be helpful if the site was flooded with the same deal but, if it lets it through, and we think we have done three deals, which is allowed - maybe we shouldn't lose the points if it's not caught on the system? I lost another 10 points today... after the event.... and too late to amend it.

I usually post more than the allowed allocated limit so for deals it usually awards you for 3 even though you can post 5 it just means 2 don’t get awarded. That way if one is cancelled I don’t lost points since I already posted more.

I agree with this Admin are very slow. Took one of my deals down a couple of days ago, had to contact them , a day later they put it back up and tucked away right back in the site. Totally pointless putting it back on , their response was extremely poor anyway.

Suppose this is the price we pay for the site becoming more popular.
