Congrats Gonagettaviper! Btw, I found out that I have wireless up in Bigbear, So i'll be on at night. While I was gone, seems like some drama going on from a few newer people. Look, what hoboto said was pretty accurate. The more activity means you do have a higher chance to win a prize. If you come in for the first time or have just recently joined, and have not done anything, except waited for the giveaways, you do not have as great a chance than those that are lvl 2-5. The reason they are that level is because they are active. Nothing in life is free. Don't come here and expect to win if this is your very first time (although it is possible). We have seen a few level 1's win and it's because it's random! Don't criticize Vin because of how the random system works. Write a program yourself, and you'll soon see that it's very legit.

To add more evidence of how this is legit, getting to level 3-4 is fairly easy if you are a good contributor. Submit a few deals, be part of discussions, make good comments, help people out. Don't complain, don't cry, just have a good attitude and you'll soon get your levels. It is a status symbol afterall. Nothing physical, nothing tangible. The fact that DealsPlus is giving away free stuff is amazing in itself. Enjoy it while it lasts because this is one of the very rare sites that is legit and actually gives great prizes to their users.

Anyway, congrats again viper. And guys, just enjoy this site while it's still here. Thanks DealsPlus for starting such an awesome giveaway event! One everyday, so can't complain there! Good luck to everyone!

Agreed, I made level 4 in about 2 months, maybe a little longer. Level 2 was REALLY easy and level 3 was pretty easy as well. Level 4 took a bit more work, but really not all that much.

gonnagettaviper.... contrats to you. I also wanted to add about the +/- on the comments... some users are really retarded going around giving -'s.... what is up with that? This would probably get a - by those same people too... but it doesn't matter now since the point system on the comments is taken off. I could understand the +/- on the ideas/name... but now???

Ok, so basically you see people who happen to have vin on their buddy list and assume that they are real pals? What do you want out of this, your entire sentence was contradicting considering you first say you don't want to win yet complain how it is bs, showing that you actually do want to win.

PHAILURE replied:
Okay... so, you're trying to say that only Vin's pals win? How about this for a fun fact: I have never seen Vin. I have never communicated with Vin. The most I've ever seen him say was in the e-mail asking for my address when I won the shuffle and when he posts deals and when he says that they're expired. That's all. I have never known Vin in the least bit. So, apparently, your theory is wrong. The reason why people win is because they are both lucky and have given their best efforts to contribute to this community. If you're unwilling to contribute, then there isn't much point in you coming -- you still have a chance of winning (at least when you don't get so many minusses to your comments), but your chances are slim, as compared to when you're level four or five. This is because on each and every giveaway, the description says, "Your odds will be increased by your activity", and your level is based on your activity. I admit that I originally had my doubts and I thought that I would never win anything, but look! An iPod Shuffle! All it took for me to get it was to spend some time and effort to help DealsPl.us grow!

hoboto replied:
No, in fact, I definitely do not believe you. The reason he is level 4 is possibly the fact that he contributed helpful comments to DealsPlus. You, on the other hand, are just expecting free things while doing no contribution of your own other than complaining how you are not a higher level or winning anything.

The point is, you need to be sincere and respectful to those who win, because honestly, none of us deserve the great free things that this site is giving us.

I understand some frustration here on a very new user winning something so cool, but the contest says "Your odds will be increased by your activity", but it doesn't say how much of a factor it is. If you and 50 others, for example, buy 100 lotto tickets, you increase your chances of winning, but if 10,000 people only buy 1 ticket, the odds that someone who only bought 1 ticket will win, are greater than the chances that someone who bought 100 tickets will win. We don't know how exactly a winner is chosen, but I'm guessing it's pretty random. If a brand new member gets 1 chance tossed into the pot, and an active level 5 member has 8 chances in the pot, a new level 1 member could still win. An active level 5 member just has a better chance. It sounds like there are a lot of chances to win here. Be patient. Congratulate the winners, and be happy for them, just as you would want someone to be happy for you tomorrow.

Well, without looking at scores, I can say that invites appear to count for a lot, and submitting deals that get front-paged (not really a verb) can earn a lot of points. Sometimes a deal that gets a lot of plusses and makes it to the front page seems to be worth more than several deals that get an equal amount of plusses to the one deal. I can't say that for sure, though. My advice is to put yourself in a tunnel, forget about what the others are doing, and keep forging ahead. You will be a lot happier that way. I don't know the breakdown for scoring, and maybe there's a problem with the coding with levels. If it's not a fair system, all the more reason to work hard. There's still the Wii giveaway that ends this month for the person/persons that have the most activity. And maybe that's the contest you'll win for working hard. Don't focus on scores, though. They're just like clothes, they don't make the man.

I don't know if there's any sure way of knowing how he got to level 4 unless he tells us himself, but from what I understand, the Hour-a-Day Giveaways are based on both luck AND "skill", as you call it. Maybe there are a few gaps and holes in how this works, but I've been told that after level 2, your levels are rewarded to you manually by DealsPl.us, so you can't expect it to be completely right -- humans make mistakes.

Matwat22, you have to understand that you have to be patient when it comes to this, be grateful that events like these are actually available to us. You have been here since 2/1/07, which is really not long at all and remember this is FREE, I know I have been around no longer, but honestly, if someone lower level wins, I still understand its a matter of chance, I will still contribute however I can because I actually enjoy playing around on this site.

Don't worry about who wins, just be a good sport and keep playing the game and you will win too.
