As reddit winds down the subreddit chat feature, /r/buildapcsales has decided to start an official community discord. We will be sun-setting the reddit based chat when it officially transitions to a group chat.
This discord server is new, and we will be expanding features as time goes on and it grows. I encourage you to also link your Discord account to Reddit (see here), as we plan to add a special role for these users in the near future.
Current feature list:
- A channel that takes approved posts from the sub and replicates them in Discord. I am open to running this for other subreddits based on request. I've seen a few discords that seem to get every post including the spam (some of which is NSFW). The method we've taken eliminates this problem.
- A general chat
- Build Assistance Chat
- Suggestions Chat
- Mee6 (for moderation and leveling up)
Feel free to join and chill.
We have been seeing an increase in the number of complaints coming from Cash Back programs (including Honey and Rakuten) denying and/or rejecting cash back claims from users. We have always regarded post-sales cash back as a YMMV proposition. Given the rise in the number of complaints, we are instituting a rule designed to emphasize the "Cart Price" of a product, which is the price (minus taxes) that you would pay.
You can see this change reflected in the updated Rule 3:
Standard Title format is [Product Type] Brief Description - $Cart.Price (Discount Information). Please ensure your title conforms to this standard or it will be removed.
If there is a cashback offer, you can still choose to include that in the Discount Information section. Example:
[SSD] Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD 2TB - $197.99 ($154 after $43.99 Honey Cash back)
I will be adding an Automoderator rule that triggers on any post with Honey, Rakuten, Mail In Rebate, or Cash Back in the title to remind users that Cash Back programs are post sale, and can be denied for any number of reasons, some valid and some completely bogus.
