My topic was removed without reason?!

I was trying to raise awareness of a free hot drink, when I realise my post got deleted can someone please give suggestions why?

@BMU Awareness of a free hot drink is always important, especially if it is chilly… like it is right now in Staten Island

Hi @BMU the topic was closed by myself with a notification as to why, it’s possible you might not have received it due to the post being moved to the test/trash section too quickly (it can happen)…

As to why the topic was removed…while it is good to post deals for community members, it is best keeping it related to a tech perspective or something product related to Anker. Otherwise it can open the floodgates to everyone posting about a food / non-Anker related tech deal with either good intentions (or to generate points and power bucks)…


@ndalby This reminds me of what I keep meaning to talk to you about. You have closed my posts before, which isn’t a problem, but I can never figure out why. When you put a note in the post, and then close it, I never get a notification.

I think it would work better if you PM’d the recipient after you close there post, since as a moderator, you are supposed to give a reason as to why the post was closed :grin:

By the way @BMU where is this free hot drink at? Need one about now!

Closed x3 of your posts previously, x2 of which were merged with an active topic you had already commented in…which in turn closes the previous thread.

A notification should be received for the topic starter as to why the topic was closed (used to be a direct PM)…possibly this was removed in the last and/or ongoing update…

McDonald’s. Download the free app.

@ndalby I’ve never received a notification as to why my posts were closed :man_shrugging:

@TechMan I downloaded the app… are you sure? I see “get a free McCafe” but you have to purchase 5 any size drinks before you get a free one. That’s really not free… Anyway @BMU thanks for the heads up

@BMU said that in the original post :man_shrugging:. I haven’t tried it yet… do you live in NC? If so, I know how you can get a free drink from a coffee shop their lol

Regardless thanks @ndalby for always looking out for the community

No, I am in NY for a couple of weeks. But it’s okay, already made a trip out to Dunkin’


New York? Don’t they have Tim hortons there? Best coffee/donuts you can get :grin:

Ha ha ha! There is a Tim Hortons right off of Hylan Blvd. That is about a mile from me. I’ve seen it several times but have never thought much of it. Gonna try it based on your recommendation! Best coffee/donuts!!! We shall see!


In the UK, you can get £5 off McDonald’s (£20 spend) this week if you order via their app. Other discounts are available but £5 off a £20 order is good.

My Friday is sorted :slight_smile:
Even better deal £3 off £10 order.

They opened one in Cardiff. People went mental. It closed a few months later lol. I never went. You can’t beat Greggs.
