It's kind of deserves an explanation dosen't it?
I mean, as long as people benefit from
It, I don't really see the problem in posting those.

Gotcha.

IIRC, groupon is considered okay gor this thread, however. Guess it's always best to ask a mod b/f posting.

Group Buys can not be promoted on Head-Fi's Main Forums, or via Head-Fi's Private Messaging, without first receiving authorization from Jude via Head-Fi Private Messaging or e-mail. Please note, though, that it is not our desire to see Group Buys used by Members of the Trade as a primary method of distribution and advertising on Head-Fi's forums--so, for this and other reasons, they are usually not approved. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis, and most often for DIY-related parts that might otherwise be unreasonably difficult to obtain.

 

We have decided this includes group buys on other sites or by manufacturers. The reason was, though albeit not specifically related to group-buy sites that companies started fighting over who could offer the group buy at the cheapest price, just to be the ones to get their name on it, despite the harm to the market overall (Google "predatory pricing") -- basically if everyone expects to buy things as cheap as possible, companies that rely on making a profit end up being harmed by those that are willing to sacrifice profit and customer service for sales*. Secondly, Head-Fi is so large that even well-organised companies that have offered a discounted group buy on a product have been so overwhelmed that people ended up with neither money nor product for many months or, in some cases, years. In the worst cases, with no further money coming in for new orders (due to numerous complaints about delays) some companies collapsed (the stress caused the owners to end up with health issues and a broken family quite often) and they took as more than $100k of peoples' money with them.

 

So, while I understand the desire to get stuff as cheap at possible, due to the overall harm this kind of thing does and the numerous issues that have cropped up, group buys are pretty much not permitted in any way here.

 

This will be my only comment on the matter and I wont discuss it further, as it will just take this thread off-topic. I'd appreciate it if people didn't discuss it further for the same reason.

 

*It could be argued quite validly that Amazon has had this effect.

Confirming per a PM with Currawong...

 

Groupon is NOT considered a Group Buy site.

 

 

"Hi GearMe,

Groupon I don't consider a group-buy site for the sake of the rules of that thread. None of the issues I raised has anything to do with that site.

:)
