New 20 Deal Submission Cap and Deal Quality

submitted on April 4, 2009 by MikeG in "Member's Lounge"
There has been a lot of discussion recently about deal quality and quantity. We've been listening, and Yan and I are making some changes:

1. Those not on auto-moderation will be capped at a maximum of 20 deals per day per 24 hr period.
2. The reject button will be pressed more often on incomplete and inaccurate deals.

Hopefully by limiting deal submissions members will be forced to think about the quality of deals they submit. Honestly, I think it is unlikely quality deal submitters will submit more than 20 deals in a single day. Also, capping deals ensures that every member has equal opportunity to be heard and prevents a single member from flooding the site.

The other change is on our side, we will be pressing the big red reject button on more deals than before. Deals missing images, descriptions, expiration dates on a consistent basis from the same user will result in more rejections for that user. We realize that submitting deals is a learning process, and we hope that through rejections users will strive to keep their quality high.

Please keep in mind, we are here to help. If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to email us at support at buxr dot com! We will be more than happy to answer any type of question, no matter how small.

    I love it! I stopped submitting deals because with the rate the deals come lately my submissions will be on the 3rd page in no time. On the other hand, I love all the additional opportunity to gain points towards monthly. Just wish there was more prizes Wink

    twenty is plenty!

    Re: deal images, it can be frustrating to get to the end of a deal submission only to realize that the image you entered isn't working. If there were some way to fix this without having to go all the way back to the beginning it would help.

    I can feel your pain, phunkeey. Smile I will work on something to enable editing images of already submitted and active deals.

    Is there a way to just view deals that are eligible for the contests or recently submitted. Other older deals seem to keep getting bumped up. Maybe I just haven't found where to see this yet??

      Switch to "recency" instead of "activity" on the deal listing pages. Look to the right hand side and scroll down a bit, and you should see the drop down menu for options. Its listed under the heading "Customize the view".
