Q.1) As an op is it requires to self-check / confirm to cc the deal details which was taken from the unofficial/official source ?

Q.1a) As op if I hadn’t done the confirmation process…
According to post laws my thread will considered deal with incomplete information.
in that case it will be right that someone post with their confirmation proof and re-post it .
Will that be cosidered as repost ?

My reply being a community member & standing at same place as yours :

1. Ideally one should always try to check details or mention the disclaimer about terms
DD being popular platform, many simply rely on deals posted here so one should take into account that part
If one has got some info & he has posted that much then he should try to gather more info & post for benefit of others

1a. Let admins reply on that

Yeah, Thanks Good day to you. smile

It’s not about old but fabulous contribution by any dimer, and I agree such dimers should get incentive according to their effort.
Yes current system has some issues like @admin said there will be no grouping of dimers to vote up each others deal but it doesn’t seem so.
So this new system can be improved with all dimers suggestions rather than switching back to old one aka biased one😆.
