Posting hyena stalks

Do you think that by linking to things you are stalking on hyena cart that you are "alerting" other shoppers to them and increasing your competition (effectively decreasing your chances of snagging it)? I've seen things through links that I probably wouldn't have found at hyena on my own. Not that I would ever snag someone else's stalk.

Or do you ever worry that people might compete with you to get it just for the thrill of the hunt? (I'm evil that way and would go after those peewell slots except I'd have to actually pay for them! )

Or do you figure that other people are going to be stalking it whether you post a link or not?

I'm just curious because I'm super paranoid and keep my stalks supah secret. Am I the only nutcase that thinks this way?

LOL That's funny...I've thought the same thing, too! But, I still post.

I usually just post about things that I KNOW I have no chance of winning...ok, no chance of being able to pay for.

Re: Posting hyena stalks

I only post stuff that I'm not stalking, just stuff that I think other mamas might like.

MY stuff- uh uh! I won't post a link until I've got the "thank you for purchasing this" page!

Me too. The only time I ask for stalking help is is it's a super hyena thing that everyone's gonna know about already, like Luxe.
