Someone Marking Competitions as Expired When They're Not

Competitions

Just noticed a comp I posted today was marked as expired when it doesn't finish until the end of November. Wonder if they're doing this to get more points?

Maybe this is something the robot can be programmed to suss out, surely not too hard to automatically see if a date is expired or not?

Not sure it's a "they" but a singular person. I've noticed this before that someone was reporting my posts as expired when they weren't.

I'd say he/she does it for points or something.

Someone did that to one of my deals the other day! It was marked as expired when it was still valid for another 5 days.

It's so annoying isn't it? The comp I posted yesterday was for a bed worth over £8000, but I managed to edit it to get it back up.

It is very annoying! I edited mine as well but we shouldn't have had to do it in the first place.
