Changes to posting of comments: Update #2

Posted January 31, 2012

You may have noticed that your comments are not being posted immediately. Here are the changes we have implemented.


Please be patient. I can see your comments awaiting approval and the mods are trying to get to them as fast as they can. They are not used to this amount of comments from one blog each day. Posting things about the mods does not get your comments posted any faster. ;-)

WRAL is working on setting me up with moderation privileges so you will have your comments posted on nights and weekends. Again, please be patient. This is only the first day and it was really necessary to move to moderation right now. It is probably not permanent and we are doing everything we can to make it work for all of you.


All comments are now moderated through WRAL before they appear on the blog.

During the weekday, most comments will be posted fairly quickly. You probably won't notice much of a difference on weekdays.

Thanks for your patience and understanding with the moderation and please keep your money-saving comments and questions coming!

    Littany, mustard is totally not allowed, neither is ketchup or pickles or condiments of any kind. Didn't you get the memo?! :-)

    I have no idea what they weren't posted but try again in the Q & A section. It will go through just fine.

    ncsualum - no need to worry. Comments will still come through on nights and weekends as posted above. There is no need to move to the facebook page or any other forums.

    Momboozer - we are very happy to have you as a part of it all!

    ncsu - I'm the same way - it's a really nice break during the day to take a minute or two and think about the AWESOME deals we're going to get later! Lol. Don't worry - I'm sure Faye will figure it out for us! (just don't say m-u-s-t-a-r-d)

    Nancy - I'm SO glad that you found them and got the coupons successfully! I looove me some egg deals! I tried to go to another HT yesterday to find them (they were out at my regular store), and they weren't on sale there. Sorry if I sent anyone on a wild goose (egg) chase :)

    littany, you know you can't say mustard!!! haha. geesh ;) It'll be an adjustment for sure :( hopefully everyone doesn't switch to the facebook page, big brother blocks it from work :\ even though I can't check this often during the day, I can at least check it! lol! and I might have to check in more often now so I can get my questions in before the Mods leave for the day...

    littany - thank you again and again for the great deal on those eggs yesterday :) Just before I walked out the door, there you were with that gem and I quickly added it and the coupons to my list! Timing is everything!

  • momboozer Feb 1, 2012

    OK, I confess. You found us out. Most of us really wouldn't be here if you hadn't started it all. I am just happy to be a part of it.

    Hi, Faye,

    Sorry to seem impatient - I'm just confused because a couple of my posts never appeared today, even though I posted them in the deals and questions section this morning. Nothing offensive, just asking about mustard, etc. Hopefully I didn't typo something offensive!

  • ncsualum09 Jan 31, 2012

    I wonder what happened that caused all this? I must of been in my little naive happy place :( Im really sad though, I agree with everyone that I snag my best deals late at night. I appreciate everything everyone does, but Faye, we don't need you staying up until 2am approving comments either, haha.

    thank you to the 2 nice ladies at walmart who had extra pepsi coupons and gave them to me when i checked out!!!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 31, 2012

    I know the truth, momboozer - you just want your free stuff...and I don't blame you at all! LOL :-)

    We really will work through this, ya'll. I promise. :-)
