In chronological order, here are the winners! :medal:

25th November 2016 - Bash :ok_hand:

Congratulations to Bash for winning the Top Contributor prize two weeks in a row, in a hotly contested Black Friday week! There is a theory that he sleeps upside down so that his arms hang from the ceiling and fingers continue to post deals. Others say his army of Star Wars memorabilia do the work for him. Either way, a big thank you from Tom, Kelsey and Deepak!

18th November 2016 - Bash :sunrise:

Well done and thank you to Bash this week for winning our top contributor! He went on a competition frenzy, posting almost 10 a day, plus voucher codes and more. Last time Bash tried to turn down our humble prize, but we'll have none of it this time. Thank you again Bash for being a part of LD!

11th November 2016 - nemosays :speech_balloon:

Congratulations to nemosays for winning this weeks star contributor prize! Always commenting and adding to the friendly community feel of LatestDeals, she's shared a quadrillion deals, voucher codes and forum posts this week.

4th November 2016 - Sarah :tada:

Well done Sarah for being our first ever two-time winner! In the last couple of weeks Sarah has relentless worked on getting the Top 100 Toys for Christmas 2016 onto LatestDeals, all under £25 and for the three ages of baby & toddler, 3-8, and 8+. A big thank you for consistently posting every day.

28th October 2016 - nemosays :sparkles:

nemosays has been a star contributor since the beginning. With over 245 comments she's brought life to LD and helped enormously on Facebook too. A big thanks and congratulations to nemosays! :tada:

21st October 2016 - Sarah :rotating_light:

Sarah joined a few weeks ago and has become a power deal hunter. With 141 deals posted already, some which have climbed to the top of Google, written in astonishing detail, she's been a huge contributor to the growth of LD :medal:

14th October 2016 - Bestoffer :cloud_lightning:

Bestoffer (AKA mojoshorthouse) came from Pedlar and has been our dedicated night owl. Some say he posts in his sleep. Others say he posts when he drives. Either way he's a star contributor and adds great character to LD.

7th October 2016 - Bash :night_with_stars:

Bash... Latest Deals just wouldn't be the same without him. Like a strict headmaster driving you towards perfection, you know you've done well when he gives a rare thumbs-up. Hugely valued, his attention to detail, relentless pursuit of deals and competitions, chat, Twitter, secret missions :fire: and more is immensely appreciated.

I think it's selfish that a person is voting up their own posts but there is no rule against it.

More posts do benefit the site and I think it's best not worry about it right now because it will probably all be sorted out in the end.

Bash Should be 1 account maximum. Should never be one rule for one and different for another.

  1. Upvoting your own deals.
  2. Getting round the maximum post limit.
  3. Taking 2 slots in the leaderboard.

Bestoffer is the original account

Mojoshorthouse is my son and his email address is attached to it

so who Knows who is posting what and on which account confused me to

Then the system is fundamentally flawed. Voting does not work if people have multiple accounts getting round maximum posts and voting up their own deals. The only way this will work is if the site is strict and vigilant about people having one account and having systems in place to detect this.

mojoshorthouse Your answer you said would be to not post on either account. Wouldn't the answer be to just use one account like everybody else ? It isn't an attack on you as a poster. You post some good stuff and help the community and site by doing so. People voting up their own deals and getting round the limit is something that should not be happening. Why even have a limit in the first place if people are making new accounts to get round it ? Why have voting when it can be fixed by people voting their own deals up ? Why have leaderboards if 2 people in the top five are the same person ?

Dread  as I said if I didn't post I wouldn't be on the leader board and this conversation wouldn't be

happening I could possibly open another two accounts not linked to each other and nobody would

know.

mojoshorthouse "I could possibly open another two accounts not linked to each other and nobody would

know."

Possibly but only if the site doesn't have the correct systems in place to detect you (even with different email etc) like other sites have. If that is the case then the voting and everything is a joke. It seems to be anyway with people voting up their own deals on alternate accounts and posting more than 10 deals while the site has allowed it. I must admit definitely not a good image for the site.

Again though why are you going to the extreme of saying "if you don't post" ? There is something in the middle of having 2 accounts and not posting at all. It is one account like everybody else. What is wrong with that option ?

Dread  nothing wrong with it if you are happy with the limit I have an opinion as well, if you are

happy to post ten deals a day that's great, I could post 40 50 60 deals a day on Pedlar and there

was never a problem so I don't understand what the problem with wanting to post more than ten is.

mojoshorthouse There is no problem with wanting to post more than 10. Quality over quantity though. A false sense of a deal when you are upvoting your own. Everybody has the 10 limit. Want it to be more then voice your opinion and try to get it changed. Until it is you are limited to 10. The limit is not there to make you make a new account. It is to stop you at 10. I agree it should be more. Having more than one account and all it entails is fundamentally wrong though. It does however now make sense how non deals are getting up voted.

Dread I did mention it if you remember and you agreed with me I was told it was going to stay at

10 and I accepted it

mojoshorthouse Having 2 accounts and posting more than 10 is not accepting a 10 limit.

Dread The two accounts are treated as individual accounts, if I do like my own deals it has'nt

made any difference to the leader board, I will like deals that I think are good whoever posts them

and if I didn't like my deals I wouldn't post them in the first place

mojoshorthouse There is so much wrong in what you just said I give up. It has just shown that the voting and posting can't be trusted. With so few members making it easily manageable a terrible sign for going bigger and better.

They should not be treated as individual accounts. You are using them to up vote your own deals and get round the 10 post limit. 2 things which would get a suspension on other sites rightfully so. Not your fault though as the site should have made it clear that attitude is fundamentally wrong for a site to work and to have let it happen so blatantly and with approval. With financial incentive involved the basic rules of free community sites at least should be being enforced.

Dread  I didn't say I up voted my own deals, if you look at the top deals and me up voting my own

deals made a difference then all the deals up there would be mine and there are none of mine up

there, I rest my case your honour.

mojoshorthouse But if you have been allowed to do it so openly that doesn't mean only you are doing it. It is meant to be a community posting and voting for best deals. The limit is 10 and people are doing more. The votes are a joke when people are upvoting their own deals. Allowing multiple accounts makes everything fake and untrustworthy.

Dread  The other site that has a similar format has a top deal which has been there for months

it just happens to be there own so who do you think do you think is up voting there top deal

what I am trying to say is nobody is perfect, just enjoy what you do even if it is a bit dodgy.

mojoshorthouse You mean the sim card one that is in the highlights ? That site is corrupt. That is well known. There are lots of ways they are. That is why I am looking for one that isn't. The top deals of the day are always different. They do have the sense to manage the community not up voting their own deals and having multiple accounts though. I do give them that. That is even without people having a financial incentive to do it and it is still needed.

"what I am trying to say is nobody is perfect, just enjoy what you do even if it is a bit dodgy."

I am lost for words :slight_smile:

IMO, this year's UK Black Friday was very underwhelming. Then again, Black Friday is an American tradition so it's not much of a surprise that it sucked.

For some reason "Boxing Day" still makes me think of Rocky and... boxing. Despite that it has nothing to do with either of those things. lol

Thanks Jackinatorz69, this is probably because we just reset it. When it resets it shows 5 people at random, then, those who continue to post deals move to the top. If you have a look now it's already the top contributors.
