Question about deal votes

submitted on November 3, 2013 by djhciskoski in "Buxr Website / Contests"
In my profile under deal vote made, it states: "Total number of deal votes a member made. The number in parenthesis shows how many of these were contest eligible votes."
How do I make the most of my deal votes? How come only some are contest eligible?

    Deals are "contest eligible" to win daily prizes for the first 24-hour period after they are submitted. You can vote for any deal at any time, but the votes made for new deals during the first 24 hours are the ones that apply for the purpose of the daily and monthly contests.

    In case you are wondering, the eligible period begins for moderated deals after they are activated, so waiting in the queue does not take up any valuable contest time. In addition to the daily prize winners, members can also earn points if the deals they vote for ultimately become a daily winner. These extra points accumulate for the monthly contest rankings, where additional prizes are awarded to the top 15 members.

    How come sometimes when I enter a deal and they are in the queue waiting, when they are finalized, they come out in posting with the original time the deal was submitted if they don't lose time in the queue?

    The original time will remain set to that when the deal was originally submitted. The count down for 24 hours necessary to gather votes however will start at the moment the deal is first approved by moderator (or Power User). Hope this answers your question.
