We have Hot Deals which list the best deals of the day.
What do you think the worst deal of the day is?

Robinson Crusoe for $60-70. I really like the play of the game but just seems high for the componets. The cards are well made, lots of counters (not all explained). Island tiles are cool. Still seems high.

Quite often what other people are listing as the "hot deal" of the day.

Why has the OP been flagged?

Probably because people thought the OP was just trolling... or maybe they were just feeling grouchy. (Can't always be sure.)

Ouch. Didn't mean to cause a problem.
Meant it to humorous more then anything else.
Not trolling, not grouchy, just a bad sense of humor.

I meant they were grouchy... the people who flagged your post. Seemed like a bit of an overreaction on their part.

For posting a discussion thread in the Hot Deals forum, rather than a more discussion-oriented thread. (The Hot Deals forum is perhaps a little stricter than most.)

Yes, but it wasn't just his thread flagged as "Wrong Forum"... it was his post itself flagged as a "Rules Violation". That's either an accusation of trolling... or just grouchiness on their part (or they don't know the difference between the two red Xs).

Yeah, weird. Regardless, I thought it was funny.

I've never seen as much 'rules lawyering' on this site as there's been in Hot Deals. Some people get *really* upset if they see something there that they personally don't consider a 'hot deal.' Having said that, a topic purely for conversation really doesn't belong there.

[i]Lots of users are subscribed to hot deals. So when something that's not a hot deal it will rightly get flagged as 'wrong forum'. Flagging someone using the other flag is much preferable to someone posting something negative (admins ultimately take the final decision as to any outcomes). In this case Octavian's moved it to 'General BGG'.

I suggest we get on with answering the OPs question.

Once a thread is moved, why isn't it unflagged?

For instance, the OP is hidden from me. [yes, I can just click show but the question remains]

Today I'll go with...

http://www.amazon.com/Hasbro-Monopoly-Deal-Card-Game/dp/B00E...

Only four left in stock! Better jump on it!

Shipping's free, though, so maybe there's something worse out there...

There are two types of flag - wrong forum and the other one. These flags are not related so moving a thread won't remove the other type of thread.

You can set your account not to collapse threads automatically for you.

I'm fairly sure that monopoly "deal" posted wins. Holy cow. Heck, even if it was a typo for 9.99, it's still crap.
