P.S. When on a custom tab it'd make sense not to show the 2 smaller grey tabs as they're redundant.

P.P.S. Although I'm not keen on the right-hand side 'blocks' I do find it interesting that there are almost 5 times the number of guests viewing than members logged in!

You make a lot of sense.
Hopefully it will get sorted.
But why oh why did they do it at the busiest time of the year?

Were there thousands of posts saying the site looked awful or the forums weren't powerful enough? (Note I'm not being sarcy, I'm actually asking seriously.)


Both really. There's things in here, like separating vouchers and deals and adding a groceries category and allowing custom browsing that were all requested.

No matter what anyone says, the two tabs at the top make it MUCH quicker to flick between sections (and this comes from someone who used to have 6 HUKD windows open just to keep up with the different sections), the for sale and trade forum is MUCH better in terms of moderation and working for sellers...

And also, the old site crashed a lot. This is **** hot in comparison. :)

Cheers for the info. As someone who doesn't venture much beyond the actual deals part of HUKD I had no idea the old site had a lot of issues.

I don't want to stray off the topic of suggestions to make the new site easier to use (I'm not so daft as to think petitions or threats will bring back the old site) however I do want to say I'm happy it's much quicker to use for you (and others) who had issues with the old site but it's not quicker for how I personally like to view things; which is why I'd like a 2nd custom navigation tab. I rather suspect that people who use the forums a lot welcome the change to navigation and the people who used to look at the old 'main page' only or with also using forums (like me) are the ones who are finding it difficult or finding it takes longer to view what they want to. Of course the date&time stamps being dodgy doesn't help anyone but then that's a bug to be fixed, not something to be implemented/changed.

It will not kill me to manually change my custom settings each time I visit but if the changes to the website have been made so that users can get the extra functionality they'd like then I'll humbly put forward my suggestions to make the new site quicker and easier for myself and maybe others who didn't have any problems with the old site. I'm just one voice but as the admin said it's not about how many people ask for something, it's if the admin (with advice/comments off others I imagine) thinks it'll make the site better or not.

I'm all for an easy life so I do hope in time some changes will be made that keep all the extra functionality that's been asked for but at the same time makes it simple for 'light' and new users to use. In particular I strongly believe my comment that most people expect links on web pages to simply take them somewhere rather than have to be used in combination with other links to get a desired effect. It's not rocket science once you've had it explained and played around with it but combining 3 tab bars with several view options and extra customising options is not intuitive, no matter what anyone says. :)

Again, probably due down to differences in how much individuals use the site but as a light userI can't remember it ever crashing for me.

You're welcome. Thanks for finding time to read it, I imagine you have square eyes by now.
