Well, it's been 30 days so a new deal post can replace the old one. Think it's bad here? Users at HUKD aren't too pleased with the new rules there which can practically nuke nearly all deals a user posted.

That's got nothing to do with refreshing, that was because OP there was posting Chinese FBA deals which are banned on HUKD. Thankfully they aren't banned on here!

It could be that someone else expired the post and then the new poster didn't see any active deals so reposted. Either way it is unfair.

As Rockman says you can repost things after 30 days, if it is within that timescale then report it because, as you say, it isn't fair. 🐞

Thanks everyone it was within this time and they have then been awarded the points and got likes etc for posting so I nice to see everyone else thinks this is wrong! I shall be watchin the person as I can see they have done it with two of my deals so far think they trolling my posts to see what they can repost rather than find any deals for themselves- will continue to report them

OneeyedRaven On a similar note I think that some things get posted (as I recall seeing them) then a few days later I see it again and do a search to find the original and report the duplicate but the original has suddenly disappeared so someone - perhaps the same person - is deleting things to post them again?!!?

tumblespots yup also reported someone for doing this as they were putting made up exp date of say 24hr then expiring the post to then repost it time and time again when in reality it was still live hopefully their account has been suspended. Makes me so sad to see LD being exploited as we will stop being rewarded and the site will close- not to mention I will lose faith in shopping via here what with the self promo and made up unicorn RRPs !!

OneeyedRaven I can't keep track of who it is when the post disappears, so I suppose we then look at who re-posts and see if it the same person all the time? Also, the proof is gone.

Just thought - it should be on their individual record as an expired post, I going to keep a better on things now. I appreciate your thoughts OneeyedRaven it has made me think about this more closely.

Have a great day ☀️ 🐞

OneeyedRaven Should have a good week, sunshine expected according to the weather people (but what do they know! I wouldn't pay them - given the choice.) Enjoy your week 🐞
