Deal editing

submitted on August 6, 2010 by DebsFreebies in "Member's Lounge"
There are times that I goof and need to edit a deal, before and after it goes to admin/power user at times. Seems like it would be easier on those that pass the deals if we could edit our own when their is an error. As it is now, admin tells of the problem, we write back with an adjustment, they have to fix it....

In a perfect world, we'd all submit deals that never need editing Smile

    I agree, Debs! This would save admins the trouble and time of having to edit deals and deals would move out of the moderation queue a lot quicker.

    Regular users can edit their own deals up to 4 hours after submission (power users, only 24 hours). Look for the icon that looks like a page with a pencil on it and click to edit the deal. It's located at the end of your deal title.

    It's just like the one above the comments, except the time frame to edit comments is only a few minutes.

      That icon's not there when deals are in the moderation queue. Here's the screenshot of a deal I just submitted and is sitting there in the queue...no edit icon.

      Right, not available in the moderation queue. It's available after activation. I should clarify that I was replying to DebsFreebies' comment "need to edit a deal, before and after it goes to admin."

    No, Hou, WE CANNOT edit our own deals ever until becoming a poweruser. Now, after less than 2 1/2 months, Solstice is refusing to make a single edit to any of my deals, even refusing to take out 2 Old Navy codes I suggested to someone else's deal in "comments" that admin put into HIS deal, which I didn't realize, & added to my own deal. (So much for doing a good deed!) All I asked was the codes be removed but he refused & rejected. If there's a problem, I have to cancel or it gets rejected & I have to resubmit. That's why you haven't seen many deals from me in the last week. 75% of them rejected or canceled. Then I have the problem of r. hand & arm severe spasms that make me hit keys 2 or 3x in a row & on submitting (MS). I end up having to cancel my own duplicate deals 2 & 3x each w/no credit given even if I send a drs. note. It bites!

      Actually, I'm able to edit my deals after they go live, within that 4-hour timeframe HouTex mentioned. Just not while it's in the moderation queue.

      Here's what the deal looks like now, with the edit icon next to the title:

    Thank you all who posted screen shots to help others understand how things work!

    As of now, regular members can edit their own deals for 4 hours after the deals go out of moderation queue. Deal editing is disabled in moderation queue. Power Users can edit any deals in moderation queue (their own or other member's) and after they get out of the queue (for 24 hours).

    There are a couple of reason why in-queue editing is limited in a way it is.

    First, it helps to minimize collisions when an admin and a user edit the same deal. The assumption is that Power Users are experienced enough to be aware that admins constantly edit deals and so the things do not go out of control.

    Second, in-queue editing implies a few other things related to deal linking that Power Users have to learn when they get the title. They essentially see extra controls/buttons that regular users don't. These controls help us to correctly set up the deal links in a way so that Buxr could earn commission when someones buys a product or uses a coupon at those stores that have affiliation with Buxr.

    All right! Finally! Great! I was told that NO editing would be done on any of my deals ever! Is this just for me or all community members and if so why?
