Two suggestions.

I would like to make two suggestions. If someone thumbs down a deal they should have to post in the deal topic the reason why they TDed the deal. I believe doing so would so hold people accountable because I see way too many people TDing for the wrong reasons such as forgetting a link, short titles or post, etc. It would also be a good idea for people to lose their right to vote if they are TDing for the wrong reasons.

2nd suggestion. I see way too many people posting freebies in the hot deal forum. This is not fair to the people who actually post in the correct forum on a regular basis who see little to no credit for their efforts. Perhaps enforcing this may get more people to check out the freebie forum more often. And lastly when I and others search for a freebie deal I expect it to be in the freebie forum as it should be.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestions.
The first has been brought up a few times. It seems that many would prefer to not have to select a reason. If pushed they would just select one that would appease the masses.
How would we know if they chose "the right" options?


And we do want freebies in the freebies forum. Please mod alert them if you see them in hot deals. The only freebies that are allowed to be in hot deals are ones that are super hot (such as a free app that is very popular).

Hello. Thanks for your reply. If people can't be bothered to select a reason as to why they TD a deal then perhaps they shouldn't be permitted to vote. As an occasional deal poster and shopper I want to know why something is down-voted so I can improve my posts, argue my point as to why it's a good deal or decide if the vote is reputable or not so I can make an informed buying decision. If it's because of a bad price then I want to know where the source for their opinion.

Or it would be nice if they didn't want to post to get a list of every TU or TD and their reason attached to the deal post. In other words you have to give a reason and a short note in order to vote. If someone is consistently voting for the wrong reasons then their voting rights should be revoked.
