Did dealspotr reduce point for validations?

@morralito

Juan Jose 10000 / 600 = 16.66. (600 is 20 x 30 which are the points per validation times the maximum validations per day at 30 accuracy points) Almost 17 days to reach ten thousand points having 30 accuracy points. Double it up if you only have 15! Plus the 7 days (sometimes more) we have to wait for the gift card to arrive.


these are the approximates of how much they used to give and the time we invested to reach 10k points.

10000 / 1200 = 8 days ( 1200 is 40 times 30) August until yesterday.

10000 / 2100 = 5 days ( 2100 is 70 times 30) Until early August.


In less than two months they literally triplicated the number of days needed to claim a $10 Gift Card only validating.

Did dealspotr reduce point for validations?

@morralito

BET0 I see I'm not the only one with this issue. In late July they used to give 70+ for validations then reduced it to 40 in mid-August and now they cut it down to 20 points in September. Almost a 72% cut down on points! Jesus, seek for another solution, everyone here knows that finding promo codes on your own is really hard! That, alongside with the vague flagging system, is slowly tearing us apart! I'm coming to believe that this is being done as a way to indirectly expel us from the website. How unfair!

Clarification on Deal Titles

@morralito

Vicki Floyd Finally someone addresses this situation. I've lost a lot of accuracy points from people doing this. Even the guidelines say that we can write, for instance, "10% Off $100+" instead of "10% Off $100 or More." But if I do the first one, I get flagged and lose 5 accuracy points.


Also, Emily Helwig. A week ago, I posted a suggestion about how good would it be if the Dealspotr's team implements a time picker alongside with the existent date picker.

Here are two little suggestions that could benefit all of us.

@morralito

Hello, I have a suggestion that could help us avoid getting flagged for inaccurate expiration dates. Heres my idea:

A new date picker on which we can also select the hours, minutes, seconds, and time zone correspondent to a deal. Not so long ago, I got flagged and lost five accuracy points for putting the expiration date 08/25/17, and it was 08/24/17 but at 11:59 P.M. If I had put the date at 08/24/17 the deal would have expired before its actual expiration date. And I'd seen this a lot even on reputable posters. Please consider implementing this.


Another suggestion is to add more options to pick when we want to invalidate some deal. There isn't even an option if we want to report a deal for having a wrong promo code. Thanks in advance.


I'm putting here some links and screenshots that may help you guys understand a little more about this if I didn't express very well.

Flagged for apparently no reason.

Hello, why was this deal flagged? The screenshot is correct, the grammar is correct, and this was a deal that expired two weeks ago. I don't see any reason why we should get penalized for old and expired deals.

And in this too, the screenshot is similar to any of the previous ones before me. It is not my fault that some sites doesn't show the discount AFTER you put in your credit card information which I won't provide to this websites. It's just not fair, 5 points again. 10 points total lost because of nonsense.

@morralito

Emily Helwig Thank you for address this situation. Good luck! Besides that, how can I make a suggestion? I have an idea about a feature that might be beneficial for all of us, and could help to provide a more accurate expiration date for the deals.
