This not a bargain of any description just an appeal, please please please whoever it is that is lurking or is a normal member stop posting bargains from this site to MSE it is the kiss of death to all offers or misprices as they have so many members that an item will either sell out very quickly or the price will jump up immediately!!

I think its better here as it concerns this forum mostly

good suggestion, but wrong forum.

I think a lot of people only come to this forum - I know I do - it seems fair enough to me that, as a one-off appeal, this be directed at the people who come here...
banned#6
please leave it here otherwise the people who need to read wont

You can't stop people posting a deal found here in MSE as much as you can stop people posting on here a deal from MSE.
The reason I've asked that this be moved to the Misc forum is because this forum is supposed to be for deals, not waxing lyrical, though I admit that is what usually happens when a deal is posted here.

Good suggestion.

Personally do not find the MSE forums that easy to read. Would hate for HotUKDeals to suffer because posts are being passed to MSE forums.
#9
there is no way that deals are not going to be posted in other places, it would be better if certain site could ban people like delboy on MSE.

As I commented earlier I know there is no way that posting to other sites can be controlled I'm just appealling to members common sense.....the more people that know about a specific bargain the quicker it will expire
#11
Surely you're preaching to the converted?
The people that are going to take heed are the ones that already realise this, the ones that are posting to the other forums are doing it for reasons that won't stop them from doing it, surely.

lol what's wrong with helping others, even if in such a way...
#13
I find MSE way to crowded i can't make end or tail of it gives me a bad head!

I agree that if anythings posted on there it will give us way less chance of getting there first but I don't suppose there's anything we can do

about others posting the deals off here onto there just try and make them realise that if they leave them only on here we all have a better

chance of grabbing a bargain before the MSE thousands get there first!! Call me selfish but ....:p:thumbsup:

The best deals spread like wildfire, I guess it's because people want to share with others.

It's accepted by most deals sites and is the best way to get the "message" of the best deals to the most people. We all help each other in the long run, hunting out the bargains first, or finding them on another forum and sharing it again here.

The compliment comes when the poster sees it posted elsewhere and the other poster gives recognition to the original poster's ID at least.

Keep hunting the deals and being the first to find them, then be rewarded to see how far it spreads :)
#18
As some have mentioned, posts made on the MSE boards have been subsequently posted here, so its a bit of swings and roundabouts, I know a good few grabits which I'd posted on MSE had found their way to here long after being posted by me and havfe been a direct copy and paste :O

I agree with what rayman says, and I've noticed over recent months on MSE credit being given to those who originally posted here.......Another thing to remember is those shrewed peeps amongst us keep a check on both sites anyway :)

What a ridiculous concept. Have you any idea how many of the hot deals posted here are just ripped from somewhere else? Whether MSE, that vouchers website, or sites like find-dvd.com there's bloody loads.

Damn cheek to try and stop the people here sharing with other sites while simultaneously taking 'from' them.

Yes Artemis we're all in the same boat trying to find the best bargains and freebies...who cares where they come from..if they sell out that's just tough..sometimes you just have to be quick off the mark.

WOW! I missed something - about stopping Delboy and MSN - Why, plse. Censorship is not an option, shirley?
#25
Please please please can hotukdeals members stop reading the MSE forums, and not use find.dvd, find.games or discountcodes.tv as taking advantage of deals will only alert sellers that people are buying their products.
I suggest we set up a secret forum for only the top 20-30 posters in the UK so they can share their deals just between themselves.
Shirley the best thing to do is just lurk and if you find any deals not tell anyone about them.

wtf is MSE? im old and confused and where is Rodney???????

Hopefully there is some sarcasm in there.. or that is the crazyest thing i have heard.
#28
LOL! I wonder if there's a similar thread on MSE begging everyone not to post their deals here?
#29
God help anyone who is brave enough to face the MSE "bargains" forums. With such hot deals as

"Save 1p per 1000 on breast milk pumps" or
"2 for 1 on coke at Asda" (now that's a rarity isn't it)

or some genuine ones from today like

"Lidl: Digital Thermometer £1.99" - How much are they usually £2.49?

Hahaha, this has had so many "Hot" votes it's on the front page. :giggle:

Sorry, but cannot agree with original post.

I am 3 years with MSE and would not come here unless MSE forum. I can agree that HotUKDeals much easy to read: has pictures, easy to post offers and shopping oriented. But that's why many MSE members come here to find quickly new offers. People share deals to help others. Remember that real bargain will not last long in any way. Credit always has to be included!

This is pointless discussion, becuase you cannot stop people, unless you use agressive rules which will put people off using this site.

Well done HotUKDeals and don't change your strategy.

Voted.... :thinking: cold

Also nice to see someone leaving a nice negative rep for my initial comment, which seems to have been backed up by a large amount of the people posting here.
#33
Just wondering how long will it take to appear another deal from MSE: Sex in the City full box set for £49.00 + Cashback :) will not tell where from, guess where you can find it :p
#34
Actually, I think the only issue with reposting stuff on MSE is that sometimes MSE turns from moneysaving into moneygrabbing.

I get the sense from here that people are looking for genuine bargains for buying stuff they want, on MSE, with the Tesco misprice areas for example, I get the impression that it's sometimes not coming from quite the same perspective. That can then make it difficult for other purchasers- I recall seeing a post on HSA and Quidco on MSE and an impassioned poster asked people not to take advantage of it to just try and make a bit of profit if they didn't really want the product or the offer would be pulled again.

On the other hand I only found out about this site through MSE - so there's two sides to the picture.
#35
People share deals, big deal.

A lot of deals from MSE end up here and a lot of hotukdeals end up on there. Not much you can do about that or the other forums/websites. :)

considering how hot this thread is I would say that the silent majority agree with me:thumbsup:

I think the two work in tandem quite well. Especially as we have many eager beavers patrolling MSE to alert us to any bargains. To suggest we should be allowed to post their bargain finds but not allow them to share ours strikes me as unfair - despite the fact it will cause mass sellouts.

I never venture into MSE as the layout continues to baffle me having become accustomed to the brilliance of HUKD :)

They're the 'silent' ones because nobody likes to point out how selfish they are.

Yep. Loads of people scour MSE and post the best bargains here. I've been known to do that occasionally.
