Concerns with the Old Navy Weekly Post

I don't know what happened in the Old Navy post (I've since deleted it), but I'm pretty upset about the inappropriate comments that were posted. When I first started doing the Old Navy posts everyone was so friendly and we all helped each other out. I don't really know what has happened since them, but it seems now a few immature anonymous individuals are getting a thrill out of saying inappropriate things and being down right disrespectful.


I'm either going to have to start moderating all comments or just not do an Old Navy Weekly post anymore.

Amen!

Alissa said...

Let's be mature people! I saw some of the inappropriate comments. I for one don't want to see the ONW posts end. So let's act like adults!

You've got a great blog here, thanks for what you do! :o)

Anonymous said...

Can you make it so only registered bloggers can post. I mean registering only takes seconds.

MamaMataUSMC said...

I really don't want to see the ON post go, as it really helps to share info, but I definately think there shouldn't be any chatter allowed AT ALL that isn't ON related, because that's what happens.

Tina said...

Agreed!
Ana-I can't see the modelquins you listed anymore-so far I have
Heather
Josh
Kelly
Michelle
Wesley
Eva
Amy

Any others?

Monica McCoy said...

Thanks for your post. I am glad that you are doing something about it. I just hope your feelings are not to hurt. Some people are harsh. I am sorry that you took the blunt of it! You are amazing and help so many of us nation wide save for our families!

Kathy said...

Thanks for starting a new post! I'm happy you didn't give up on us faithful ON comment readers. It's too bad a few people are jeopardizing your posts. Thanks for all you do and please keep it civilized and helpful everyone!

MamaMataUSMC said...

Tina, that's all I found also, I knwo there must be more guys right? I also know the youngest modelquins are Rita & Owen, and the dog is Barker, but they don't have twitter pages.

Tina said...

The more I check out these Twitter sites for the modelquins, the more helpful I think they could be-am I wrong?

Tina said...

Ana-hmmmm...off to search and see what I can find...

Kathy said...

That's all the guys that I know of... then there's the kids Kimmy, Christopher, Rita, Natalie, Emily and Owen

Pamela said...

Hip! I have been gone this weekend and seems I missed something! Your a great person for all you do for so very very many people! Hope what ever happened is now corrected!

Kristen said...

Yes...can you regulate who posts in any fashion? I don't blog but I'd be willing to register. Can you then regulate the registered bloggers only to post comments and is it then possible to block individual people (even if registered) from posting if those negative people registered as well?

MamaMataUSMC said...

Here's their YouTube page there are some videos on there that might have their names, I just can't watch them right now.
http://www.youtube.com/user/supermodelquins

laury said...

What kind of info does twitter give you that would be helpful?

Kathy said...

The "story of the supermodelquins" video on youtube give a lot of info about the people, but it was already used one week for the quiz. Not sure if they'd use the same source again.

MamaMataUSMC said...

laury afew weeks back there was a quiz that you had to find answers to and it might be clues of what to look for whenthe page comes up. There's really no way to know how useful the info is until the page comes up.

Anonymous said...

In 2009, Old Navy hired advertising agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky to create a new advertising campaign. Also, the old logo was revived in 2009 after the new logo ended. The team came up with Old Navy's current advertising campaign that stars mannequins (Kelly, Heather, Amy, Eva, Michelle, Wesley, Josh, Christopher, Kimmy, Natalie, Rita) who carry the title "Supermodelquins".

(from wikipedia) - J

Tina said...

LOL Ana-I just watched the whole thing on Youtube too! Too funny. Yes, I think we've got them all. Laury-on Twitter you can search for the individual modelquins (ie oldnavykelly) and all the others (except the kids) and they "talk" to one another and say different things that MIGHT be helpful in the hunt tonight. Or, at least I'm hoping:)

Mindee said...

Don't tell her to breath...she is right!! Thanks for all you do hip. This site has helped me find coupons every week...I don't know what i would do about it

MamaMataUSMC said...

Kathy thanks for posting the names on the kids. I thought there were 3 guys not 2 so I think I'm missing one. Someone had posted the names and ages of the guys in the other forums did anyone keep that info?

Mindee said...

I am so excited !! I hope its not hard today...I could not get the bird last week! :(

Rose said...

Enrique's the 3rd guy!

Great info thanks J!

Jennifer said...

Oh - that's too bad - what is wrong with people that have nothing better to do with their time then make nasty comments. Keep doing what you do - I love your blog!!

Kathy said...

Ana... ages listed were...
Wesley - 34
Josh - 32
Enrique - 29

I'm not sure where this info came from so I don't know how reliable it is. I never saw the original page with the ages.
Also, I've never heard anything about Enrique besides in the video. I don't think he's a supermodelquin... but he is the father of Eva's daughter (Rita)

MamaMataUSMC said...

Ok someone had mentioned Enrique but he didn't have a Twitter page that i found.

Tina said...

Ok, since I've never won one of the coupons before, I have a question....are you allowed to try and win more than one? Or once you find one, do you have to decide right then if you want to keep it or not? Also, anyone know how the whole facebook thing is going to work?

Jacqueline said...

Yay! I didn't miss the hunt!

nicole said...

i wish the poeople that were fighting would come foward and apologize

Carla said...

Whoa...I came back and hit refresh and the page was gone. Must have gotten wild. Anyways, glad to see the nice ones still here. And even more glad I did not miss the reset!

Good Luck!

Kristen said...

Nicole...no I don't want to hear anymore from those people (even if it's an apology). Let's hope they don't come back and ruin it for everyone!

Priscilla said...

I agree, I thought we were here to help eachother get some great coupons! This ecomony is bad and I have lost my job, so if I have to stay by the computer all day hoping to get a coupon to get clothes for my family, I will. Lets help each other out! No more drama.

Anonymous said...

nicole, just drop it already. let's move on.

Mindee said...

I AGREE! Lets all just get along & help each other so we can ALL hopefully get a good coupon :o) Cause we know we all need it!!!

Tina said...

Wait, so what do we do if we find a good (but not the best) coupon? can we keep looking or do we lose that one?

Nichole said...

I did not see what was said on the post but is there any way you can set it up to not accept anonymous posts?

Unknown said...

Twitter updates for the supermodelquins--maybe good hints for the reset

OldNavyHeather
Date night tonight! I already have on the perfect new dress. Josh just can't stop staring at it.

OldNavyKelly
If someone could just move me over to the menswear display I'd have a better chance of finding a good mannequin.

OldNavyMichelle
Hangin out at the pool display and latherin the kids up with SPF so they don't burn their lacquer. Ah, motherhood.

OldNavyAmy
Spotted cute skirts and dresses flying off the racks.

OldNavyEva
This weekend, mama needs a new pair of shoes...or 10! Just got a plastic pedi and need to show it off!

Mindee said...

Thanks arin i bet this will definitely help us!!!

Unknown said...

I have to leave in 30 minutes and will be gone for about an hour-if it resets while I'm out will someone send me an extra coupon??
texarin@yahoo.com

Nicole said...

Wow - looks like more crazy stuff happened when I was at church. That is too bad!

Hip2 - could you maybe turn anonymous off just for today? I guess it might feel like babysitting, but that way everyone would have to register and not have quite the freedom that anon gives them?

Anonymous said...

Hi. Good luck to everyone tonight! What time are we expecting the site to reset? I'm a first time "player" at ONW and want that $75 off coupon!

Anonymous said...

Hi - I didn't see any of them but I am sorry to hear you had a problem with comments on one of your posts. I really think one of the best things about your site is that you don't moderate comments. Maybe it's the group of readers that you have but I've always kind of thought it was because things posted right away but you have more comments on your site and I also feel like the comments tend to be more relevant that comments I've seen other places. I often click to open the comments section to read through and see what people have to say.

Mrs. B said...

can someone post the link again? I didnt have it saved. thanks!

Painted Mommy said...

I agree that anonymous posts make people say things they wouldn't otherwise. Let's lose em!

Joe Money said...

Yay! I didn't miss !
I hope this week all the site will work same.( I couldn't see the blue polo for $50 coupon last week)

Unknown said...

Okay girls-I'll see you all in an hour or so. GOod luck while I'm gone.

Carla said...

Tip use the Auto clicker, Set for single click, time either 30 seconds or a minute. Then bring up the ON page locate the mouse over your browsers refresh page and wait for the page to change. It will you monitor thing from across the room.

A link to the clicker is on my site. It is free!

Kathy said...

Mrs. B... what link?

Anonymous said...

Sharing thing may not be best idea; ON stated Q shared would be of different amt than original. If shared Q is lower amt than original, & ON will only allow each e-mail only one Q, then that e-mail would have lost opportunity for best Q - just a thought...

Mrs. B said...

Kathy-
for old navy. the site posted before would say that the coupons werent up yet, so I wanted to keep checknig but didnt have that site saved.
thank you.

Mary Beth said...

Hi Tina:

I'm not an expert, so I might get corrected on this, but in other Old Navy coupon searches you were able to keep hunting for a better coupon, while your earlier "finds" were stored. Then you had to pick which coupon you wanted. But I never have gotten one of the high value ones, so don't know if it's different for them.


Don't know what the earlier comments were . . . DO know that I visit this site at least 4+ times a day, because it is so relevant and up-to-date. And 99% of the time the comments help me almost as much as the original posts, because everyone is so generous with their info. This is a great site, and you do a wonderful job!

LilKim said...

I must say that I LOVE hip2save.com and I was so lucky that I was a part of the posts last week. Like so many others, I couldn't see the blue polo, and so had NO chance at one of the big ticket Qs.

2 ppl actually sent me 50 off coupons, so I forwarded the extra to someone else on here that hadn't gotten one. I hope that a few bad apples don't spoil the ONW barrell!

Anonymous said...

That other site that loads a few minutes before Old Navy Weekly is most likely why the coupons finish so fast by the time we get to the site.

Anonymous said...

wait, if i try that link, it says URL not found? What am i doing wrong?

Carla said...

I know the secret pre loading site. That is how I had time last week for 5 coupons!

Mariah I bet you dont get a Coupon!! Bet you walk away 5min before it resets like last week!!! haha

Carla what is the secret pre loading site. I mean I guess if you are not willing to share the URL I will understand but can you tell us anything about it? Like if it goes up before the site goes live? How long before? Etc.

Arin - thanks for the Twitter help! Can you post what you posted earlier on the other comments that were removed? Thanks!

Sue said...

I think it's wrong to e-mail Old Navy complaining about a promotion just because you didn't get a coupon.
It is something EXTRA they are doing for customers, not something they have to do.
If they want to limit it to certain states, or time zones, or even people named Frank, they have the total right to do that, since it is their promotion.
I just think that people complaining because they lose will not encourage them to have promotions in the future.

Jaime said...

So did ON reply to your email SoTheyLookExpensive?

actually they did email me back and it wasn't an automated email either...i can't remember the guy or his title but he seemed to not know anything about it so maybe it was a fluke?

House of Shepards said...

So, on the ON address that someone posted earlier, last weeks coupon one, now instead of telling you that you're too late etc, now it says Oops, check back later for more coupons. Hmmmm....????

linda said...

if you keep refreshing it will go back saying they have more coupons...

I bought 120 bucks worth of clothing and only paid 4.00 with the 75 off 100 coupon. Not sure what would've happened if I bought more.

Try right clicking and doing "select all"

Em said...

Didn't hear anything about $175 off as opposed to $75, but did read about $75 ringing up as $100 off $100 - but that only happened on Monday; guess ON caught their mistake and subsequently corrected the situation. Those holding $50 off $100 or 30% Qs also said theirs were ringing up slightly higher on Monday as well.

MamaMataUSMC said...

Pate Family, you have to Ctrl A to select all and then right click

~ Junkyard Jennifer said...

I agree!

You have a fantastic blog and it makes me so disappointed to think of those individuals who have no respect for others and how they could ruin what is a good thing for everyone else.

You are amazing and I have no idea what was said, because I missed the recent ON post, but I have seen a comment here and there in the past that I found to be inappropriate during the ON posts. I'm sorry you had to deal with whatever happened this time.

Keep up the awesome work and know that most of us out there support you 100%! It is only a very small minority who will behave in the way that these individuals have.

Thanks for all that you do for us!

Question-
Do I actually get a coupon from the media site, or do I just get a few minutes "heads-up" to practice?

Carla said...

I plan on getting a surplus of coupons this week of all values at least the ones that have limited quantities. If come Thursday you were wishing you had grabbed a 30% off 50 I should have one.

407space said...

I am using Check4Change.
I right-clicked on the white space and selected "Select All" from the pop-up menu.

After everything is highlighted, I right click again and goto Check4Change. There is an option for Custom -- I set the time to 10 secs and made sure to click the checkbox for SOUND ON, which was off by default. You can also change the options for alerting you.

Kim Ekker said...

Your labor is NOT in vain! Keep up the great work!

Pate Family said...

Ana- thanks- I got it to work on the regular on site- that has the "check back later" msg- but can't get it to work on Carla's "secret" site because it is all images. Did you figure out how to do it there? It won't let me select anything. Thanks so much everyone.
