Yet Another Deal of Mine Reported

Other

Yet another deal I shared this morning has been reported as expired but it has not. I have checked it and it is available for another 12 hours ! This has happened to things I have shared about 5 times today Vouchers and deals. I really enjoyed this site when I joined but am now thinking about leaving. When I joined in January I really enjoyed it but this reporting is now getting on my nerves. Its fair enough when the deal or code has expired but when it hasn’t yet it’s still reported what is the point in going to the trouble of sharing ?!!!

It's a shame that you are considering leaving because of a few trolls, as you have been sharing some great stuff.

I think the admins and mentors do their very best at controlling this sort of thing, but of course even the admins/mentors are only human. Perhaps we could have a stricter rule on points abuse? 🤔

I know the mentors do a great job. They certainly nipped it in the bud a couple of days ago when I was being trolled. It’s just so disheartening when you go to the trouble of sharing and it gets wrongly reported for the sake of 5 points. Maybe stop the points for reporting altogether 🤷🏼‍♀️

Please don't leave - it lets the trolls win. May I suggest you report it, they can see who is doing it, there are far too many of us the victims of the malicious "expirers". My first deal was trolled and twice reported as expired. I am 99% certain who the first one to expire the deal was but am not allowed to say.

I was thinking of never posting a deal again but have decided that any deal I do post, to the very best of my knowledge, is an actual good deal. Unlike most of the deals posted by those who trolled mine.

nipperjwb Don't get mad - get even; report them even if you don't know who does a thing it will be able to be checked by those you report it to. Things can't be reported as "expired" accidentally and those doing it might be running out of lives.

nipperjwb it upsets me too when something I have posted gets reported. I have had it a couple of times. Really do think people may be doing for the extra points they can get. 😕

Yeah a few of my deals have been removed and some of my deals are still there but points still deducted! I must have a neurotic hater stalking my profile daily.

Hello, each report is manually reviewed and if incorrect it gets tallied against the Reporter. If they consistently report incorrectly then we disable their reporting ability.

Just to add, these may well be innocent people mistakenly reporting your post as expired rather than anyone trolling or actively trying to wind you up.

Quite often people miss discount codes, don't see the promotion box on Amazon, or even just press the expired button to see what it does 🙂

If any of my deals have been reported as being expired then I normally get the message that allows you to look into it so you can edit/ unexpire it yourself.

I agree with everything that's been said - it seems really petty but I would like to know the reasons why they do it. Perhaps they find it difficult to find deals comps, etc to gain their own points. I have just put a comment on two deals that do not match up with pictures or item on offer (easily done but the poster hasn't come back to check or change the URLs) I am now thinking that if someone else reports it the original poster is going to think it's me! Note to self - don't comment. 🤣

Hi all.

Unfortunately everyone here has to understand and especially to live with it.

Newer posts are not expired automatically, so if someone reports in a wrong way, and the post is not expired after verification, the user will also lose the report points. If this is frequent, it also loses the function of reporting posts.

If the post is older and expires automatically, this can also be reported, and we will take the post online again. If for example another user reports as expired, soon to post the same offer, you can also report this to us, your original post will be taken online again, and the new post will be deleted / duplicated.

No one needs to worry too much about it, I even had many posts with 20min of life, reported as expired. All this goes through verification, even if it takes a few hours (we are few and human).

Have a great day!

Can you check my last 2 posts? I posted 2 different items and they were taken down and redirected to an item that's the same brand but a different product. I tried to get the attention of other admins but to no avail. I'm not sure how to contact people, I just tried to tag them in the chat.
