As the number of topics posted daily grows it gets more important to follow these guidelines so we can all enjoy the flow of useful information and make sure valuable bits don't get lost.
The primary purpose of the board is to share shopping/retail/consumer/money related news and also post questions about Buxr. This is also perfect place for members to get to know each other.
There are a few things that should not be posted. They are:
1. Shopping deals
- do not post coupons, deals, promotions, and freebie. These belong to our deals page since over there they get better exposure and are easier to find. Even limited availability deals should go to the deals page. Just make sure you list the states and mention "Select States" in the title. One state/city deals? You probably don't want to share a deal like that since it is not likely to get many votes and is of limited value.
There are a few exceptions:
a) YMMV deals that are very hard or impossible to verify are OK to be posted in the discussion board
b) Recurring codes - always post these in the dedicated threads

c) CVS and Walgreens weekly in-store deal round-ups are OK too
2. Offbeat news
- do not post weird, odd, strange, funny, crazy etc news or videos. There are plenty of other places online to get these in great quantities.
3. Absolutely no copying
of other news articles! Describe the news/question/problem in your own words. Use the “quote” button if you need to quote another source but don't quote more than a few lines and always link back to the source.
