Criteria for making posts in the Hot deals forum
I was wondering if it would be possible to know what the specific rules or criteria that is applicable when posting threads in HD.
Can the mods kindly chime in what is the general criteria for a valid post in HD please.
-I find every now and then there are posts that are listed that don't actually have a deal to be had (there is no evidence that can be backed up or referenced)
-Sometimes the date is incorrect, contains minimal information and the post is still allowed to stay in the HD section.
-This sets a precedent for speculative posts that can abused by users if it goes unchecked and lowers the overall quality of post in Hot Deals as they are merely taking up place.
I suggest having a set criteria (if not already in place) like:
-Deal must be available at time of posting or official confirmation needs to be in place before posting.
-If not it should be placed in the shopping discussion section especially if the information is incorrect.
-Maximum number of days before a deal can be posted. Is there a limit that is in place right now?
-If the deal is found to be a dud and no official information is available I suggest having the thread removed.
Just my 2 cents would like to know more if possible from the Mods and what the criteria is. (not posted anywhere from what I checked)
I say this as the frequency of low posts has increased steadily and in some cases the misinformation has led to the opposite i.e not getting a deal or paying significantly more as a results of.
