If you could give Buxr submitters one tip, what would it be?

submitted on July 25, 2010 by DebsFreebies in "Member's Lounge"
I've noticed we're getting more and more new people (which is a good thing).

If you had just one tip to pass along, what would it be?

Yes, I know we have a Wiki and it is very informative. I was just curious as to what the #1 tip you felt would be most important.

For me, the one tip I would share is:
Don't trust a code just because you see it. Always check it out and make sure it works prior to submission.

    Always check for duplicates before submitting a deal

    Avoid posting "Up to" sales... at least I try to unless it's seriously one amazing sale.

    Do not vote down a deal only because your size is out of stock or selection of flavors is down to few.

    Make sure you post the store's name in the title for sales, but don't list it for products.

    Never down vote ANY deals (even though the instructions tell you to and ask you to tell why) or the BUXR community will hate you and they don't forgive & forget easily! (I truly am sorry everyone!) Cry

    Well most of the important stuff has already been mentioned. The one I didn't know and was pointed out to me at one time, was if your deal is coming from facebook be sure to select the merchant name when posting the deal. That way when searching duplicate deals your deal will come up when the merchant name is searched.

    And don't forget those expiration dates... If you are a begginer and forget to include exp dates - it's ok.. Admins will do it for you a few times but don't count on it in a long run ..

    Another point- pay attention to comments from admins and learn from your mistakes.

    Most importantly ..... Enjoy your Buxr experience!!!

    Thanks for all the great advice! I want to become more involved with BUXR. I have only submitted a few deals and twice the deals were rejected because they were to be used as discussions not deals! This is where I am confused!! Red Face

      This isn't a "be all, end all" answer but think of it like this: if it is an interesting topic or a "deal" that only benefits a few people (say, regional), it is a discussion topic.

      If you do participate in other aspects of Buxr, you'll soon learn what would be better suited as a discussion rather than a deal.

      Don't be afraid to use the "feedback" link. If you aren't sure if it is a deal or discussion, ask. Your question will get answered.

    Here is my '2 cents' - Way too often a new member comes along, submits a few deals and then wonders why they don't get votes. Do not just submit deals, participate in other aspects of Buxr life: leave comments if you have anything useful to say, vote up deals that you like, start discussions when an interesting topic comes along. Everething you do helps others see a human behind the deals you submit and helps your deals get votes sooner (and as an add on benefit helps you advance in the monthly contest).
