Trouble with Deal Alerts

Tharsis 203 37 July 12, 2016 at 05:19 PM
Hello people, I'm currently a little perplexed as to how to get the deal alerts to work.

I set up a notification alert for the "computer" heading with a few keywords (laptop, notebook, ips, i7, etc) to trigger after 2 thumbs up.

What I get is EVERY post in the computers category that gets 1 thumb up. This is a lot of alerts, lol.

Is there something I'm missing regarding the efficacy of keywords or perhaps I'm just setting everything up wrong...?

Kind of at a loss here.

it may be how you formatted the deal alert. Shorted made a nice guide here that may be of assistance: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=67718300&postcount=540

You shouldn't get any at 1 thumb, unless it was voted back down to 1 thumb after reaching 2 thumbs.
