Bye Bye FPD & Changing the way we earn Dimes !! - Suggestions needed
Deal Expired

16th August 2018 Update:

===========

Hello Dimers,

From Day one, Being Savings-obsessive people we are, We always wanted to highlight the very best deals on our Home Page of DesiDime. We use to manually select deals as FPD and highlight them on our home page. Idea was simple, we need to showcase the best deals regardless of the user who has posted it or the merchant. The deal should help people save money!

With community growing, Selection of FPD started to become more and more difficult. Some deals would run out of stock very soon, Some deals we could not promote as FPD as earlier we might not have promoted similar ones. We slowly started to create rules for FPD which kept growing every month… We started getting tags for making deals FPD… which was not the original idea… Some deals, the discussion was more about FPD rather than the deal itself.

We also introduced Hotness last year to portray the hotness of the deal(whatever the community feels about the Deal) and have been constantly working on its algorithm. Starting sometime in September, We (Select Admins, Moderators, Users with deal promotion power) would not be promoting deals as FPD anymore. With scale, we feel that Community is mature enough to choose good deals.. and most of the Home page deals will be powered by what community feels with certain Editorial content management.

We would still be involved in highlighting certain deals (like bumping upcoming deals which went live, showcasing certain deals which we feel community might have missed etc, removing deals which might be illegal or very user specific, removing deals which are intentionally bumped by users etc..) but our action will not result in a user getting FPD etc. Our objective is to make process more democratic while still keeping some editorial control of home page. Most of the deals on home page will be shown based on users reaction to the deals. So its what about what community/Dimers at large feels about the deal..

Users statistics like FPD count will be replaced with better metrics like Average Temperature, HOT Deals (Deals with more than 300 Degree hotness in x number of days) which would still justify and highlight the Best Deal Posters. Obviously, Number of Historical FPD will be still shown on user profile page

As shared earlier, even Dimes reward will now be based on reaction of community to the deal which will allow any user posting a very very good deal to get upto 100 Dimes while very cold deals can even get 0 Dimes. This we feel will remove users who spam deals.

And yes, We will also be launching a Revived Gift portal later end of this year where Dimers can automatically convert their Dimes into Gift Cards of their choice.. So no more filling up forms etc smile

We would love to hear what Dimers think! We are super-excited to give more power to community… as we have always believed that “Community is everything…”

Feedback and suggestions are welcome!

No More 20 Dimes for FPD !!!!

So as the platform has evolved the Dime system has not evolved !

This is an attempt to change that and make it more dynamic

Current system as we see has one flaw !

It does not differentiate between good deals / great deals / Mad Crazy deals

It treats them all as one !

So how do we change it

Is to have dynamic dime distribution based on algorithm !!

what it means is that a deal can get 0.2 dime, 2 dime 10 dime…….100 dime

Depending on how the deal is performing on various parameter determined by the algorithm

So if some one comes and posts deals which they know are going to get them an FPD….. but the community knows its an avg deal then the system will distribute dimes accordingly and not necessarily give 20 dimes

This is our first thought, this is not final…… this thread is meant to start the discussion so that we can change the way we do things….. please add your comments so that as community we can get a better system in place

Maybe it can be based on the count of dimers involving in the discussion when deals are posted. I’ve seen mad crazy deals getting a lot of good attention in the discussion. Cons on this would be, for new app deals, like yesterday’s boom app deal where there were many unique dimers on discussion but it was mainly to ask referral code to be pmed. Those should be ignored by the algorithm

#BusinessFriendly or #CommunityFriendly or #DimerFriendly
What will you choose?
A mix balance without hurting business, without hurting sentiment & keeping all involved parties happy
Some tough calls looks to be on board but don’t make it meager payment for contribution to community
But it will have subjectivity & that should not be skewed in favor of business as many deals are not business oriented but traffic oriented
Lets hope for WIN WIN situation

I think if it is #Communityfriendly it should cover both businessfriendly and dimerfriendly

Coz more the community participates/appreciates/dislikes it will directly relate to the way dimes are distributed
