There's a thread in Misc about it. Its possible this was the thing Admin was recruiting writers for....
[admin]#2
The idea is for it to be more of an article based site coming out of the community on HUKD. So a lot more digging into scams, insider tips, guides, consumer news updates, that kind of thing.

How will this differ from some of the stuff Martin Lewis does on MSE? Are you hoping to tap into the immense amount of pooled knowledge on HDUK to create the articles? Just interested thats all...

just had a quick look - looks ok to me -
as for mse gari - you have to admit hukd is a lot more user friendly

mse is an explosion of text - so hard to get around

Rubbish - what is exactly the point of this

Less bank accounts more bitterness? There will probably be some cross-over but this is more of a consumer blog than a tips newsletter or best account analysis. Take a read of it over the next while to get a sense of its direction although I'm sure it'll change a bit as we go.

But yes the big resource is the HUKD community as there is a lot of info buried in threads that needs a bigger platform sometimes.

Question - are those people being paid to write the blogs ?

agree with you there

recalls - i.e trading standards
employment help

i know the info is accessible on the net - but some people dont like trawling through pages of legal blog - just plain english - so easy to ask on here

I was a bit surprised to click on the link to reveal in huge letters "oh fcuk"!


Yer, me too, lol :?

The image next to the HUKD logo doesn't match the background colour... looks rubbish!

Be nice to have a bit of a warning if this sort of stuff is gonna be featured on the site...

Im sure this isnt allowed on HUKD but it seems it is?

EDIT: How ironic... i cant even link to the picture as it has that word in! :roll:

I was thinking that, it shouldnt be linked to the main page really, with the first thing you see when following that link is OH ****

It really isnt suitable at all, and should be removed, im sure the hukd mods (or whoever made the link) should know better to be honest.

It doesn't really fit into the family friendly focus of the site does it? :whistling:

Totally agree... I'm at work and the last thing i expected was to have an official HUKD link to that sort of stuff... have made a comment on the article and hope this would be the last.

Nope, not at all, it should be removed really, there are a lot of young people, and people who would find that offensive using this site.

I totally agree gary, all of us commentating on this thread are long time users here, and it really shocked me, as we dont see that sort of stuff here, and its always been a family site, it isnt appropiate and I have used the 'contact us' link to voice my concerns.
#17
That sort of personality is fine... but not when it is linked to on EVERY HUKD page that is telling me to "read it".
#18
On a different note... 3 attempts to get the link image correct... but at least we are there now!

EDIT: Shame more effort was spent on this rather than correcting the abuse filter on that site.

Just had a quick scan through the blog. Really like the feel of it - witty and irreverent. Looking fwd to reading more. :thumbsup:

I really don't want to come across as bitter or anything...

but does anyone feel a little like they have had their time wasted with the original "we're looking for writers" **** that HUKDs admin posted about.

It was clearly the old boys club from the start - and they were never interested in involving the HUKDs membership.

What a waste of time, and apologies again if you just think I'm a bitter old git.

Just to be clear everyone on there came from the call we put out... Also we want HUKD members to help out so please check out the 'Write for Bitterwallet' link for more ideas on how you can write for various features etc.

Does the content on bitter wallet come from here then? So who gets the credit?
[admin]#23
bazzaric - Take a look here for credit info: http://www.bitterwallet.com/contact/

Definitely if something is sourced from someone it will be credited unless asked otherwise.
#25
IMO its spam and HUKD should remove it. Self promotion much?

Well that's Bob sorted........now who gets my money? :-D

Time to block another website, I guess. Adblock works perfectly well :) Now no link and no picture. :)

? How do you sell out to yourself? Have you looked at it? You do realise it's an extension of HUKD right...

Yes, I am using Firefox and have Adblock (the original one, V5.d3/43) installed. Just right-click on the image and select Adblock, it'll disappear then.

Not sure about sellout, though. I guess HUKD could be a bit more selective when allowing people to express their opinions on that blog and keep it consumer- rather than politically-oriented. But again, this is just my opinion, YMMV.

Extention or not, its still quite irrelevent! Personally i dont like but im just 1 in 100k so what does that matter.
#32
i dont see the problem myself, its a small unintrusive link, if you dont want to look then dont, along with whining about the affiliate links used here some members think they own the site, its not like you have to pay to use it lol, makes me giggle :lol:

I use adblock 0.5.3.043 as well (didn't like the alternative adblock plus) & I never realised you could do that :oops: rep on it's way (& are you one of the earliest members of HUKD - 2005!) :thumbsup:

It is not about "owning the site" - it is about using the site for driving one's own agenda, as clearly can be seen in case of Vince Wong. I have no problem with other authors, just that one. As to 'whining' - when was the last time you saw me making comments about affiliate links?

Thanks :)

wasnt aimed at you Komm, just in general, i havnt read the blog, but it does not affect me having the link there :)

Classy :)

Looks good on the side there, better than before.

I'd probably stick a little colour on it though, it looks a bit 'greyed out' compared to the other icons on the bar...
