1. Click bait posts with no real deal content get high hotness and are visible on front page

2. Reposts exist openly with high hotness. Original gets lost

3. Few days after a deal is posted, it will be posted again by someone with slight content changes and again it is visible on front

4. Product specific deals get advantage of high hotness. (For obvious reasons as number or clicks will be high on them)

5. News posts exist in hot deals

Team is already working on improving the system. We are focusing more on moderation. However few posts would get left out. Also requesting dimers to alert us when we miss out on these.

We will also need some help from community in voting down “Repost” deals as Repost so its get highlighted to us..

Click bait deals also can be voted down if there is no real deal content.

so yes, we will need help from community for the same, while we continue to improve things… smile

@admin can you add an option to follow a thread on the app.

The thing is …most of the people will not care if it’s repost or not. They don’t have time to check all those things. They will just be interested in the deal. Whoever posts it nicely, with words like steal,loot and other eye catching content will get noticed

It will only be the ones who are very active who will report as repost


Also. Another thing which I haven’t mentioned is there are user specific posts as well in front page. (Which is fine but many times there is no mention that it is a user specific deal. ) Previously it used to be manual so such posts would not reach front page and even when it did it would be moderated by someone who would explicitly mention it

yes agree… we merge hundred of reposts every day… so we keep trying our best…

User specific – yes, so there is nothing bad with user specific deals… Atleast i disliked that rule in FPD era to be frank.. yes title should be updated and we will see if we can do that also.. Feel free to tag us also if you find such deals and we will definitely update.
