I'm sure most members will agree this site is getting ridiculous with the amount of Competitions being posted -clogging up the "deals " emails and the site in general . Whilst I appreciate some members like competitions surely it has gone too far ! A Competition isn't a deal ! Full Stop . I can check deals only -true - but I also like to answer and indeed ask the community so when I select "ALL" I am bombarded by competitions ! Likewise my daily email of "Deals" is littered by competitions . Competitions are there to harvest members email, phone number , address etc -they're not a free gift . As most are posted by half a dozen "members " I can only presume there is a financial incentive for HUKD to post so many Competitions ! I have previously suggested the Hot and Cold buttons relating to competitions be replaced by an "Entered " button ,thus appeasing the Competition aficionados but not clogging up "Hot pages" and Hot Deals emails with Comps - too obvious a solution ?
Could it be that the Competition sponsors (email harvesters ) would not pay so much if their competitions did not go hot (as they nearly always do ) and thus get maximum exposure ?
I have checked and rechecked the sites rules and there is nothing in there that prevents me from criticising HUKD or from suggesting how it may be improved , yet two previous , similar questions have been removed without the courtesy of a message to explain which rule I have breached (which I have not ) . Mods please ensure this post is not deleted and is left open for discussion , as like most members I only want to improve the site .
