Category :- From drop down select which category product belongs too.

Start Date :- If its a upcoming deal, then you can add start date to the deal.

Expiry :- If you know when deal will expire, then you can add it here.

h4. Before Submitting a deal check following points, if still submitted then it will be deleted

1. If its is a repost or not* (if yes then, will be merged with original one)

2. if it contains any affiliate link / Code

3. Self promotion – any one promoting their own or friends site in forum

h4. Other Rules

Coupons should be posted in the coupons/freebies forum

If any one is found abusing personally attacking, calling others deal bakwaas, or any rude language…. will be given 1 warning, and if repeated it will lead to 2 days suspension. And if repeated again then permanent suspension.

h4. Rules for upcoming deals

Upcoming deals can be posted in advance provided sufficient proof exists for the same (official communication on website, image proof).

Upcoming deal should have atleast following information

Product name

product link

Time/day as when the deal will be live.

Once deal is live Original poster has 10 minutes to update his/her thread with complete information(product link, exact price & shipping) along with final price to get dimes credit. Or else the first person to update thread with correct information will be given credit.

If the original poster fails to do so or if the deal is not live as per time mentioned by him/her,then that thread can be deleted/locked.

h4. When do i get Dimes for Deals i shared

For every deal shared, you will get dimes on the 5th day. Suppose you shared a deal on 1st, dimes allocation for the same will be done on 5th. Dimes is calculated by our system depending upon various factors like votes, hotness click, etc. So share good deals and you can earn upto 200 Dimes per deal shared.

h1. Reposts:

Expired/LIVE Deals-

If deal expired and goes live again, and the original post is not more than 10 days old, then creating a new thread IS A REPOST. Such threads may or may not be merged into the original post. Update the existing thread with a comment to help us.

If a deal remains live then creating a new thread for the same deal just because 10 days have passed by is considered a Repost. Such threads would be simply deleted.

Coupons –

If a coupon code can be applied on an existing deal making its price drop further and the original post is not more than 10 days old, then creating a new thread is considered as REPOST. Please just update the original thread with the coupon (Due dime credit will be given to the person who updated the post). Such threads might simply get merged into the original posts.

If a different coupon can be applied on a deal reducing/not reducing the effective price and the original post is not more than 10 days old, then creating a new thread is considered as REPOST. Please just update the original thread. Dimes credit will be given according to the rules. Such threads might simply get merged into the original posts.

Simultaneous posts –

If more than one user posts a same deal simultaneously with complete details, then the latter thread is considered as a Repost. Only the former poster will receive the dimes credit.

Please note that short-cut/incomplete posts submitted just to be the first one to post will not be considered even though if they are edited with full details later on. In such cases the next one who posted with full details would be considered as Original poster and credits awarded to him/her.

But if 2 or more user share deals with gap of 10 seconds along with complete details then dimes credit will be given to both users (but both deal will be merged irrespective to time difference). (But both thread must have complete details along with terms and condition, if any)

h2. Not a Repost :-

Price Change –

If a new price appears for a product at the same store/link (price drops to be specific), then you must create a new thread and it will not be considered a repost. You can also simply comment in the original thread. Though a new thread will ensure that other people are aware of the price update.

Expired/Live Deals –

If deal expired and goes live again, and the original post is more than 10 days old (it would say something like posted 10 days ago, 1 month ago, posted 2 months ago etc..) then creating a new thread is not considered as repost.

Ok, I am really sure I posted my deal before the other user. I want proof of the exact time of his/ her post.

To know the exact time at which a deal was posted: check the top left corner of the first (post) box below the title of the topic, you will find a clock-like icon. Hover your cursor on the text next to this icon and you will be shown a small box with complete time details mentioned in the following format:

Day, DD-Month-YYYY, hh:mm:ss +0530

368944Npcwc

Note: Since, we use the Greenwich Mean Time format, hence +0530 is mentioned at the end. So, add it up and you know the Indian Standard Time at which the topic was posted.

I just received a warning; it says my post is a re-post. Help me, I didn't mean to do it on purpose.

Calm down, the re-post warning is a reminder, in case you have stopped using the search feature to check if the deal exists or not. Nobody likes to see duplicate posts all around the forum and hence, repeated defaulters are given warnings. It may not matter much if it is your first warning, but we suggest you take the warning seriously and avoid posting duplicate posts thereafter. Getting repeated re-post warnings will lead to a fall in your Karma and your Ranking Level, and finally might lead to account suspension as well.

A post/ topic is deleted (or edited) mainly because of the following reasons

· Duplicate topic or re-post (the most common).

· Violation of Rules.

· Referral links in post

· Spamming in forums.

· Posting objectionable content

· Abuse in forums

· Third party links

· Post having URL of websites blocked* on DesiDime.

· Posting shortened URLs (links).

· Posting same deal/ topic in different forums.

· Posting in wrong forums even after repeated notices.

*Why are those URLs/ websites blocked? Where can I see the list of sites that are banned on DesiDime?

Basically, the error message appears for our competitor sites.

However, kindly note, we do not display any such blocked websites list on the forums (for internal reasons). We have instead designed the system in such a way that you will end up getting the error message for links from all those websites.

If you feel your post has been deleted, even though none of the above reasons apply to it, you can always ask us for help in the Questions, issues and suggestions for DesiDime forum.

h1. Validity Extended Deal rule

If a coupon/offer validity is extended from the same day its supposed to expire then that thread will be merged with the previous one. But if coupon/offer is not extended within 48Hrs of its expiry then a new thread can be created and it will not be considered as repost.

Eg :- If validity of a coupon is till 15th and offer is extended on the same day or within 2 days i.e till 17th then it will be merged with the old thread. But offer was not extended till 17th and it was again marked live on 18th then it will be considered as fresh post.

h1. Exception for (Flight, bus and hotels Deal)

If a deal is valid for specific time period. And it comes back with fresh validity.

And if user is able to avail the offer again then that will not be considered as repost. And it will be treated as fresh deal. But if same user who availed the deal last time and is not able to avail it again then it will be considered as extended deal.

h1. Warnings, Suspensions, Use of language and Content Filters

Do you give out warnings as well?

Yes, indeed we do. To maintain decorum in forums and to prevent spamming, we give out warnings to users who fail to abide by the Rules and Regulations of the forums. Please remember that when you are using DesiDime, you are agreeing to our Terms of use.

If you fail to honour this agreement, you will receive a warning from us. Repeated warnings might result in permanent suspension from DesiDime.

When do you suspend a member?

We have a strict “Ban on Sight” policy for:

*Spammers

*Self-Promoters

*Fake Accounts

*Besides this we may also ban:

*Repeated defaulters (users who received several warnings)

*Members abusing others in the forums

*Referral link posters

Use of language - Since its a community and dimers from all over the country visits hot deal section and hence we try to maintain/and expect dimers to use a single language (English) in this section. We do not allow text in any other language apart from English, and use of other language is allowed (but text must be in English) considering that is translated in English as well. If user is found not following the above rule in hot deal section, they will be given a warning and if found doing it multiple times then it may lead to suspension as well.

Can I post anything in the Dost & Dimes forum? After all, it sounds like a casual forum.

Objectionable or inappropriate content in any form will not be tolerated in any of the forums. Doing so will attract a strict warning.

So, we highly suggest you to avoid posting such topics, even if it’s done in good humour.

I want to report an inappropriate content/ user, whom can I reach out to regarding this?

If you wish to report any content posted by a Dimer or even a Dimer, himself for that matter, you can make use of the alert administrator icon, which is the Flag icon present in the top right corner of every post. Alternatively, you can send us the link of the post or user profile via PM (Private Message) or simply comment on the topic and tag an admin, and we will do the needful.

(How to tag a user or admin in your post: type @ in the reply/comment box and wait for a few seconds; you will get suggestions of usernames in a drop down menu, select the username and then type your comment or reply. You can also type @@ at the beginning and end of a username to tag someone.

Note:

i) Usernames are case sensitive.

ii) If you don’t tag someone properly, they will not get a notification about it and this may cause a delay in their reply.)

I have a recommendation regarding ebay posts restrictions….
as of now only ebay deals with feedback score >50 are allowed to be posted. but one thing has to be seen that many a times the feedback profile is much below 95% and sometimes below 90% (at least 1 unsatisfied customer for every 10 sales + also many those who dont give feedback):
Examples-
http://www.ebay.in/itm/271085015842?var=5701209...
http://www.ebay.in/itm/150929922653?ssPageName=...

Both the item links were directly or indirectly posted on DD. The second item is HOPELESS and complete waste of money. However the seller sold first 50 pieces @ 1/-, next 25 pieces @ 76/- and last 25 Pieces @ 101/-….defenitely majority by DDimers. This means he collected around 7K, in a day, by posting a link on DD. However I got the item for 51/- but still that too a waste of money. What we got is 2 DVDs with 10 pirated print Movies…much better prints we already saw just after release of movies, from local market. The product that I have received is simply a pirated 2 DVD pack with no value, as it has been distributed for free (May be) by PHILIPS.

The concern is that DD should not me made a JUNKYARD by people to sell their Free stuff or Junk. However in no case it will be possible that seller refunds money to all buyers, nor he can provide ORIGINAL prints (as mentioned in post) to all….as everyone will not claim (as its just 51/-) or they are satisfied by the fact that at least they got 10 movies, let it be pirated.

I have this recommendation regarding ebay posts restrictions….
I think that ebay items of sellers with only 100% positive feedbacks only should allowed to be posted. In that case the FEEDBACK SCORE may be reduced to 25 from 50

rest I trust Admin….he is best person to decide.

Before posting a deal check if it is already posted.
Update – 4/12/2011 – Duplicate deal will be immediately deleted. ok
One warning would be given after which 2 dimes will be deducted he earns 1 dime by posting 1 deal toungueout, it is not some high class exam:P like correct answer carring 1 marks, wrong answer 2 marks toungueout

After second warning if still some one reposts, 10 dimes will be deducted detuct 2 here toungueout
After which, the user would be suspended for a week 1 day will be enough to not post, public loves dd, and also love to post here, but seriously there are much more rules than the orignal dd a/cs toungueout
