Posting Guidelines - READ BEFORE POSTING

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Please use common sense when posting - no advertising of your own or your friends companies, post to second hand sales sites, etc.
 
Share the love by telling people of awesome deals like the steam autumn sale that is currently going on!
 
All topics should be linking to an awesome deal from somewhere on the interwebs - but please don't just link! Include some of the best deals and talk about the sale, maybe even include a screenshot :D

 

Some basic guidelines that would be nice to see people follow:

  • Please include the location as a prefix in the title. For example -  {CAN}, {US}, {AU}, [CA,US], [EU], etc...
  • Please keep the titles simple - indicate what it is and how much along with the location prefix and possible for how long
  • Please indicate the currency type in the post - CA, US, (£)
  • Links in the Hot Deals section to items being sold directly by the manufacturer or distributor, such as Razor, Dell, Amazon, Best Buy, etc., are allowed, but only in this section.
  • NO links to Ebay or other second hand and/or auction sites (even ones run by possible "recognized" brands)
  • G2A links are at this stage permitted
  • NO referral links of any type

Only members who have previously contacted an Administrator and made prior arrangements can post "deals" to their own websites or affiliates.

 

Thank you for all your assistance in keeping this section tidy and running smoothly.

Sorry if it looked like I was spamming some posts. I was merely trying to post deals that were still valid that I had found and linked elsewhere. I thought it would help to build the start of this category too. :)

Suggestion

 

Can we make an addition to thread guideline that states that the title of the thread must include :

 

1- Country where deal is applicable (if applicable) or WW (worldwide) if not applicable

2- Name of item (with a few specs if possible)

3- Deal price  + shipping cost (if applicable)

4- Source website

 

Example : CAN - Samsung EVO 250 Gb , 160$ + 7.99$ (Newegg.ca)

 

If the thread consists of multiple deals, some title items could be more general.

Can there be some kind of tag on a posts title for the country involved in the deal? As a UK user of the forums its really difficult to quickly see if its a deal applicable to my country. I know that it is not just me who would benefit from such a feature as i know for a fact there are many people from the UK on this site along with others from AU and NZ. Would love this feature!

@Slick I'd like to see certain guidelines added and enforced.

 

Suggested already, but can't be emphasized enough. Prefix for location based sales. {CAN}, {US}, {AU}, ETC Nothing like seeing a "decent" deal only to realize it's not for your region.

 

Secondly, I'd like to see referral/redirect/short url links removed.


You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Users cannot, and will not securely manage key material. Most users can't and the ones that can, wont.

Ask me about Bitcoin, Litecoin, Crypto-Currencies, and/or Mining them.

Please add that you need to say where the deal is in the topic title.  aka America, UK, Europe etc

Some guidelines are already mentioned but I hope you don't mind if I put my 2 cents in.

 

Title should include:

Country: [uK],[uS],[CA] etc

Product name

Cost with currency icon ($9.99 instead of 9.99)

Retailer

Example: [uS] Generic 8GB RAM $43.99 @ RandomSite

 

Deal contents should include:

Product

Base Cost and shipping cost

Available countries

Retailer

Direct Link to deal (No shortened links)

OPTIONAL: Image

Example: 

 

Product: Generic 8GB RAM

Cost: $43.99 + Free Shipping

Availability: US

Where: RandomSite

For me personally that should be the MINIMUM that should be acceptable.

@Slick @WoodenMarker , important suggestions:

 

  • make it mandatory to post product name and price in the title (I've seen people post thread titles such as "holy crap, what a deal!" with no other description)
  • Country for the deal should be in title (in the format [uS] [CA] [AU] [uK] etc.. )
  • A like/dislike or upvote/downvote type of system so that the really HOT deals actually rise to the top of the subsection instead of having some crappy deals and great deals mixed together.
