Sure I"m open to ideas :) If you can think of anything deals based it would be even better ;)

LOL. I thought a quiz would be fun.

:idea: Maybe we could have a thing where each day there's a question. To answer the question you have to post at least 1 deal or 2 freebies. The person with the highest number of correct answers for the month wins. :?: :?:

Brilliant idea!!!

The only problem is it's getting a bit hard for one person to even find 2 original freebie posts each day now, let alone say 5 people 8)

New deals are popping up all of the time, and new freebies are still being brought out, but I admit - we've found most of the long-running ones. I'm sure there's some more inconspicuous ones out there though.

Should work easily for new deals in comparison to freebies at this moment, but to expect 2 new freebies posts per person per entry isn't going to work out, it is now taking most of my time to find the few that I do get, hopefully there will be a floodgate open at some stage in the future 8)

If you wanted a competition based on Deals then maybe you could decide on e.g. 20 items (toaster, 21" TV, Leather Football, 1lb of Carrots, 1 nights hotel stay, Incredibles DVD......etc)

And in order to get a point you would have to post the best price.

Maybe to save someone jumping in as soon as a list was opened you could post a couple a day?

I love the idea davemichael. We need to plan things like timing though. How long will each one run? Who wins the prize? Etc.

I have to say I really like this idea DaveMichael! Keep going guys you're coming up with some great thoughts...we can definitely sort something out based on this so far...

You could answer a question for posting a hot deal, freebie, competition, or someone's deal request that way everyone has a fair chance as freebies are running slightly short at the mo!

I only said 2 freebies to stay in line with the rule laid down during the last promo that 2 freebies = 1 deal :( .

I do believe that 1 of each is a good idea :D . :arrow: What about competitions though? They're hardly rare, infact I could pull you 10 off tonight if you wanted me to. :?:

well you could have to post 3 comps then, admin has a set question each day and once you have entered enough posts to qualify, admin PM's you the question and you have the rest of the day to find the answer after a month or so the person with the most correct answers wins the prize! only thing is it would mean a lot of work for admin Private message all the questions and checking the right number of posts have been entered

or we could have a post of the month award where we nominate what we think is the post of the month the one with the most votes wins a prize at trhe end of the month
#14
Why don't we just say then that the person who posted the deals or freebie thread with the most views wins. Therefore, you're sort of voting when you view the thread. :D

But you can view your own posts and the count still goes up :twisted:

I like this idea, but combining it with a quiz might prove difficult.

How about a series of questions that relate to certain posts or topics on HUKD. To find the answers people would have to look through the deals by using the search options. Maybe they could be related to nominated best of the month posts.

That method would rely very much on one lucky find though, stumbling onto 1 popular find, beit a hot deal or freebie, whatever, wouldn't compare to 10 not quite so popular finds, in my eyes... :?

If there was to be one prize then maybe a competition could even be based with a consideration to a combination of volumn of posts/post quality/as well as effort involved based over a preset period, that way, the luck part is removed & a competition for all it would then be... :wink:

It would give the forum a kick of new life too... :wink:

It would also be easier to administer too... :wink:

Maybe, even a first, second & third prize if the results are that good :wink:

It would be very nice if you could, please... Tia... :wink:

I must admit, it isn't hard to find a competition, but... it isn't always that easy to find the answer to a competition question to go with it to make it complete... I know I have spent way over an hour in the past just determined purely to hunt one illusive answer on the net before making just the one small post, I do like to think that they do certainly have a value when they contain do answers, even though they are not hot deals nor freebies, they are all very much part & parcel of the attraction of this brilliant site :wink:

If anyone else can help out by posting some more competitions, preferably with the answers, please do so, it will be appreciatted... :wink:

Shall we start this up then? I'm thinking let's try out dave's idea of who can find the best deal on a certain item. I'll make a post in the Deal request forum and we'll take it from there...

I've got 20 128mb USB2 BOGOF drives from good ole PC World so might as well make use of them :D
