View Full Version : Need deals forum deserves more respect
08-15-2000, 04:43 PM
After asking for help w/ a few deals myself and receiving little or no response...and after scrolling down all of the available topics and noticing 2 or 3 responses at the maximum for most of them.....I feel it is my duty to say something.
When you compare the amt. of responses in the got deals to the need deals forum, there is a huge discrepancy...if people are going to get good deals from others, they should also lend a hand and help others find deals. Its only fair in my opinion.
And that my friends, is my two cents.

I couldn't agree with you more. I would like to help out more on the "Need Deals?" bbs, but everybody there wants tech stuff. I don't know anything about that kind of stuff. Books, food, make-up, even clothes, yes; technological stuff, no way, Jose. I wish I could tell them where to look, but I have no idea myself.

this issue has "divided" the mass ever since the forums section began. i believe that respect is the whole underlying issue, whether it is for the "needs deal" section, or just a novice using the service. sometimes, i just don't feel there's very much respect here. i've wrote a LONG post on that issue, but people just wrote back defending their actions.
i think the best thing to do, is not to take things too personal. and know that there's gonna be people who will help, and there will be people who won't. there's going to be people who will flame, and some who won't. just don't give up, and keep trying.

its not really an issue of taking things personally...its more about this being a community, in a community people should learn to give as well as receive

Come on people...get over it. If you post in need deals, you are asking for help. You can't just make people help you. When you get a response that is a favor, not something someone owes you. If people don't want to check the need deals forum, that is their own right. I myself check it everytime I check the board.
When you ask for help finding a deal, be happy if someone helps you. If you don't get a response, time to go do your own research.

sometimes, the only responses deal requests ever got in the got deals forum were replies telling them that the question was in the wrong forum, etc. more replies were added because the first reply was flamebait. now, in the need deals forum, no one can rightly say that the request is posted in the wrong forum, so there are not as many replies.
