Deal Rejection due to "Expired Offer"

submitted on June 4, 2010 by vectra5 in "Buxr Website / Contests"
Just wanted to hear your opinion on the following:

Earlier today I've submitted a valid deal with the item still "in-stock". It stayed in the pending queue for 2 hours before admins moderated it. During the 2 hour period, the item became out of stock and the deal was rejected due to 'expired offer".

My "rejection" score went up as if I submitted a bad deal.. So my question is should the "expired offer" deals from the pending queue show up as "rejected" on user's profile?

    Vectra, I am sorry your deal got rejected. Unfortunately these things happen. Buxr mods are not robots and even if they could stay on the site 24 hours, it can still take considerable time to verify and edit each deal in the queue.

    I don't think I can do anything about the reject count though because we cannot know when this deal went out of stock, and believe me there have been cases when members mistakenly submitted expired deals.

    So unfortunately I think you will have to cope with this unfairness since it is a direct result of how the site operates. There are some good news however, the reject count doesn't mean much at the moment. It is just a number on your profile and doesn't affect your standing in the contests or things like that.

    Yan, many thanks for your thorough reply.

    Now that you've explained that reject count does not mean much at the moment, I have no problems with "expired offer" rejections. thanks again

    Vectra, I too apologize for having to reject the deal. If there was anyway you could cancel it yourself before the timeout occurs then by all means, do that instead. The only way we can remove it from the deal queue after that is rejection.

    Yes, that would have helped. Canceled deals do not count against your reject total. They do however count against your daily submit limit which is 10 deals by default.
