Saw a deal thread then disappeared

jellogk 257 82 December 18, 2015 at 07:19 PM
I was wondering what happened to a thread i saw. It wasposted, bought the deal, then saw no trace of it. Was it a bad deal/self advertised? It was for a $6 bluetooth speaker. I think the original thread was http://slickdeals.net/f/8385039-bluetooth-speakers-zero-one-audio-portable-wireless-speaker-for-6-after-coupon-on-amazon?v=1

Any info would be appreciated. Tia.

Hi,

it looks like a member of our QA team removed it because it does not comply with sd forum rules for feedback on Amazon.

Thanks for the info. Dont suppose you can expand on that? Was the feedback not credible or biased?

SD requires a minimum feedback of 1000 at amazon. The seller in that thread only had around 200.

The reasoning is understandable. It's very disturbing and confusing when threads and posts just disappear, though. Would it be possible to replace the thread/posts that are deleted with some message indicating why? That would help avoid the confusion about "where did my post/thread/alert go?" This seems to be happening a lot more recently. I guess I should post this in its own suggestion thread...

I agree, such a feature would be handy. Perhaps original title inside index with deactivated link (and main thread), and message Removed: Low Feedback Score printed in bold to right of the thread title added.

That seems like a weird, arbitrary rule. It's pretty difficult to get feedback on Amazon as it is. If you get one feedback out of every 10 sales it's a miracle.

Hence the need to have a well established feedback. If any joe schmo opens an amazon store, how does the buyer evaluate the service? 1000 feedback is a respectable number to reassure a buyer. The same thing is true of ebay.

I guess. But there's all sorts of metrics that a seller has to abide by on Amazon that can lead to their suspension if they're not at least mostly customer friendly.

If any of the metrics goes over a certain percentage, you're out on your head until you try to appeal for reinstatement.

My usual litmus test for a seller is 100% positive feedback or very, very close to that and/or in business for a long time. But I can understand why the site requires what they do.

I've wondered why a deal sometimes disappeared when I clicked on a deal alert (like today) so I decided to search. Good to know you guys check their credibility!
