1. If its is a repost or not* (if yes then, will be merged with original one)
2. if it contains any affiliate link
3. Self promotion – any one promoting their own or friends site in forum
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.
Upcoming deals can be posted in advance provided sufficient proof exists for the same (official communication on webste, image proof).
Upcoming deal should have atleast following information
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 FPD credits. Or else the first person to update thread with correct information will be given credits.
If 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.
If deal was 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 it turns out to be FPD, we will anyways give you credit. Don’t worry about it.
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.
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 credit will be given to the person who updated the post in case the deal goes on Front Page). 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. Credits will be given as stated above in case the deal goes on Front Page. Such threads might simply get merged into the original posts.
Simultaneous posts –
If more than one user post a same deal simultaneously with complete details, then the latter thread is considered as a Repost. Only the former poster will receive the credit in case the deal makes it to front page.
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 OP and credits awarded to him/her.
But if 2 or more user share deals with gap of 10 seconds along with complete details and if that deal hits front page then credit will be given to both users (but both deal will be merged irrespective to time difference).
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 was 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.
If a coupon/offer validity is extended from the same day its suppose 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, and it will not be considered for fpd. But offer was not extended till 17th and it was again marked live on 18th then it will be considered as fresh post and it can be considered as fpd.
