Hot Deal

SPAM in deals section

Past fewdays the amount of spam is increased in deals section. For example check the below screenshot. item: Aircooler but numerous posts are created for each aircooler. instead could have posted a single deal with all links.

If there is no stop for this then it is hard to follow DD for deals.

suggestions to get it sorted.
1. Limit Number of posts based on ranks (like 2 for newbies, 5 for deal cadet etc)
2. Moderators should be given some permission/sort of to increase the above mentioned limits if the deals posted by newbies are good and are value adding to the DD members.
3. currently the deal heading is being checked before posting (like keywords are identifed to stop from posting) but a new system is needed like (check for keyword with ecommerce site and number of deals posted. suppose if it is about Airconditioner then check the airconditioner deals posted in last 2-3 hours. if there are more than 5 {say a Limit} then a warning to the deal posting person to check other posts before posting again.

Note: No personal hatred towards anyone but some hard changes are required to make this DD community better.

SPAM in deals section

Anyone comes and dumps anything as if its a dumping ground 

seen many Higher Ranks also posting discussions in Hot Deals section

Seen many users posting Unknown apps and website deals through which Desidime gets Nothing but those dimers get dimes 

When DD gets nothing why do the posters get Dimes through the posts which are not beneficial to DD and Dimers

Post limitation per user is necessary

@Lootster Not only one or two posters doing the same there are many old users with multiple accounts doing this 

If you observe someone's activities its quite easy to identify multiple accounts and their activities

I used to post deals on DD few years back and one dimer used to post individual deals with zero value addition.

 If I posted a master deals thread having televisions, he will shamelessly post 10 deals from it and the deals were promoted on front page. I could see multiple associated accounts but mods were least interested back then 😕

Your point is valid. But I would like to make some additions -

1) some Dimers every deal or not a l00t deal is promoted to high hotness , how ?

2) targeted downvotes of deals, we can't see if someone downvotes but admins can. I think many misuse this feature.

3) selective rules for some, no rules for others [ just an observation]

@Lootster

What do you think this site is for? 😎

Is it JUST to help buyers with best deal available? Think through.

is it ok to spam every deal u come across and not thinking of is it better or not?

I agree that this site basic is to help each other with deals and not to spam everything so that good deals in between are missed out.

Im not telling that it is not good to post. but telling that there needs a sensibility before posting. (if all the deals in new posts page are by single person and that too of same topic. {Check screenshot above} single person posted 11 posts out of 15 posts and that too of Aircooler from reliance digital. why cant a single post with all those links at one place?

I propose this discussion as wrong category of discussion.

It should be categorised under the head of feedback.

sorry quantum didnt observe it but SPAM posts are real.

u being active member in MODs, have a look and see the value addition which brings to the DD as a whole if SPAM posts are reduced.

I Disagree to post limitations as that would result to users creating fake ids/Multiple Ids for posting.

Which would be another headache for the administration team to follow up and find multiple accounts 

its currently not allowed to create multiple accounts, but still there are many who are doing the same & once post limitations is applied then it would be more worse

let them create. 

now main problem is people posting spam just to gain karma and dimes. if multiple accounts are created then atleast they wont get Karma and Dimes in single account and they loose motivation to create new accounts as it gets hard to earn dimes and karma as a whole.

Is there still some paid section here which has the curated deals?
Have heard there used to be or possibly still is there.

The site has crazy algorithm to promote deals. Go to Commented section, you will see deals which has zero comments. You will find new deals in Hot section

The new deal is considered a comment, and for the hot deal section, it is promoted by admins.

FYI, there are such rules in existence where a dimer found to be spamming in deal section(posting regular deals too much), they'll get warning, subsequent warnings, moderation, temporary suspension and then finally permanent suspension. Few have been suspended as well for that. [fun fact: our beloved bot dimer get blocked by system for posting so many deals in short period of time]

fresh e.g. https://www.desidime.com/deals/levi-s-mens-denv...

..

an imaginary situation

today will be price reveal of smartphones for upcoming sale, so.. you might see 20+ deals back to back.. you/we may feel it's spam but according to poster's POV if deal is lowest/similar to previous lowest price, it's not..

..

yes, the deals can be clubbed like for 

AC 1.5 ton 3 and AC 1.5 ton 5 in one

or lg/voltas/so on 1.5 ton 3 Star and lg 1.5 3 Star in one

but the technical aspects arises here..

if a poster posts two deals, they'll get more visibility (probably more credits)

however, ¹clubbing doesn't guarantee that a/c to poster.. but my POV says clubbing (sometimes) gives better reach and visibility 

...

you/we can't enforce as written rule as it'll be lead to chaos.. however, collective consensus will make this community better.. sometimes, peace (own mindset) is better than war (invoking rules).. so, if we see(feel) that spamming, we should first check them in personal inbox.. if they're open to suggestions, they'll improve for the community.. if not, check with guards.

..

³for e.g. in banner deals, rather than posting new deals, we try to update and decorate fellow dimers' thread.. or .. if someone posted good deal and not recognised, we recognise them even after months passed... 

...

for few, 

park+ quiz is not worthy or Bajaj finserv deals (send money) is problematic or deals posted by dimers get oos too quickly or different quizzes/games by eCommerce sites are fake or Mars to milkyway crossing Vulcan comments or croma deals at l00t prices...

...

²community has been provided personal inboxes, heating voting rights, cold voting rights, comments.. we should use those first.. 

...

1. Limit can't be set on rank level as it'll be partial in nature as suggested by you.. cz who knows their potential.. limit at entry level will kill their aspirations.. how will they learn! I wake up and decided to post lowest/great/steal/l00t but then went to sleep as limit has been introduced (neobabies deys) [community looses those deals]

2. as said DD not authority driven, but community driven (democratically) , we are free to use ²rights within professional conduct and perform ³duties (improving, guiding, even scolding)

¹3. traffic generation? clickouts? buyouts? due credits? due hotness? recognition? we have to ponder these questions as well

....

Past suggestions

https://www.desidime.com/feedbacks/the-desidime...

  • While searching for a product, please create an option to sort deals by its hotness. 

https://www.desidime.com/discussions/why-most-o...

  • DD may not be only for loot deals.
    DD & Dimers can’t produce loot deals if it is not available in the market.
    Dimers can only bring here best deals available in the market
    & I am sure that everyone here is is doing 100 % justice to do that
    And about this drying up of good deals , you will find that
    every year you will find threads that the last few years
    were much better as people want more & more.

  • green nd red tomatoes system was best..

"so, if we see(feel) that spamming, we should first check them in personal inbox.. if they're open to suggestions, they'll improve for the community.."

Clarification: No such efforts were made by OP. 

I believe in a community platform we all can learn and understand each other by communicating. 

Facility must be utilised at optimum level.

I am always open for suggestions for betterment and improvement of community and self. Atleast give a chance to improve before taking it publically and quoting with screenshots which clearly point outs one person. 

For next time just remember, I responsibly care for community platform as a whole. And you can always count on me.
