Q: Flagging a deal.

What happen when you or someone else flag your deal because the deal is inaccurate or duplicate or something? Does it make the reputation score go down?

Flagging does not have any effect on reputation score. It just brings the deal to the attention of moderators.

it has no other effect except to flag a deal to be looked at. atleast thats what I've seen. I wish you add comments to your flag. other then the default ones listed.

I'm sorry, I flagged your deal as a duplicate. I'm sure you guess that since I commented the deal too. lol As the others said, it just alerts the moderators so they can delete the deal.

@ Beautifulminds : I do not mind at all you flagged my deal.It is fine as long as there is something wrong in my deal. :)

personally I like the comment with a flag. If it deserved to be flagged, so it should be. But if I didn't know why, then I just think fishy stuff is happening when it disappears.

At least the comment would still show in the notifications and the poster would know what happened. Just my opinion though. If I'm a duplicate I'd like to see a link to the original. Things like that.

Thanks for understand Shaheen! I should have provided you with a link to the original though, as Perkalicious said. I know for next time. :)
