I would like a more specific explanation

@jlhlobo04

Victoria David, When claiming my GC, they sent me this message:

The Dealspotr team sent you a message: "Thank you for participating in Dealspotr. We reviewed your recent activity, and unfortunately we saw patterns that match patterns of abuse or unhelpful deal posting which may negatively impact the user experience on Dealspotr.


Some examples of this are:


** Limiting deal posting to certain high volume stores

- When reactivating deals, setting a short expiration date

- Excessive confirming, editing, or reactivation patterns to artificially boost points

- Manipulating the referral system to boost points


Examples of helpful deal posting activity:


- Post deals for a wide variety of stores, in particular stores that don’t have many deals yet

- Use a wide variety of validation types (creations, reactivations, confirmations, edits, etc.)

- Provide evidence of reactivation expiration dates. If none, default to 2 weeks.

- Post deals for shopper requested stores (and earn double the points!)


Your account has been adjusted for this activity. We encourage you to continue your participation, please double check that any validations you’re making are truly helpful to shoppers on Dealspotr.



What I would like to know is, what was my mistake? It was because of:

- Put short expiration dates. I place the recommended 2 weeks in case of not being certain of the expiration date.

- Excess of reactivations. I do it simply because reactivations are easier to achieve and more points are earned. It is not worth the effort to look for new codes because the points earned do not encourage me.

- Manipulate the referral system. If it is for the points earned through my referals that I was penalized, I do not see the point of wanting to refer new members. I thought that was the idea, to bring new people to the community.

This message of penalization should be more specific and clearly indicate what I do wrong to avoid repeating mistakes. Thank you!

I Received a Points Adjustment

@jlhlobo04

Victoria David Hi.
You can explain why I was penalized by this porduct deal, according to the URL it is not valid but it takes you directly to the product with the price.

Oops! Your validation: $99.99 Coach Women's Boyfriend Watch (vs. $105) at Amazon was flagged for the following reason: The best online price URL provided is not a valid comparison price. Your Accuracy Score may have been affected. Thank you for helping us create a great experience on Dealspotr by reviewing your validations! - view your deal - View our deal posting guidelines for more details

Deal Posting System Updates

@jlhlobo04

Victoria David No, I ask about the allowed amount of publications in a store. For example, I got 5 codes from a store, say Ashford Jewerly, of which 3 were reactivations and 2 were new to Dealspotr. Could I publish those 5 codes without being penalized? I confess that my activity in the page has declined because I have these doubts now that I have 25 validations a day and I would not like to fall into errors that could harm my score.

Deal Posting System Updates

@jlhlobo04

Victoria David I have a question. How many new or reactivated codes can be made from a store? I ask this because I would like to know what would happen in the case of those who have unlimited accounts.
