Tolerated it for a week as I thought it maybe a bug or kink in the system as changes have clearly been made to the site but when visting this site every few hours over the course of a day it becomes very annoying quickly.
Are we missing something or this there an error?
Mods can you raise this please?

Not an error. Just a bad implementation. http://www.hotukdeals.com is now the address for the highlights page itself. People who are noticing other stuff besides deals are likely clicking on the "Hot" tab beside "Highlights" without realising they're now in "Hot" of "All" section whereas before the default "Hot" tab was in "Deals" section. So they didn't only change the default tab, but also the default section. MOD post about it here. The only thing the profile setting changes is the link of the HUKD logo. So that once you set the preference, clicking on it will take you to your set page rather than highlights. However, people like yourself and many others who visit the site again via the http://www.hotukdeals.com address, will end up on highlights page again regardless of profile settings, so the mod just advises to bookmark the deals page instead. It's caused a lot of confusion firstly because they didn't seem to announce the change in default section and also they didn't explain that the profile setting doesn't mean that when you visit http://www.hotukdeals.com you'll automatically get redirected to your preferred page.
