Is the the flamedeer comp really random and are you more likely to get an advantage using social media. - HotUKDeals

I guess you would get an advantage from using Twitter.

Well I don't twit so I couldn't join the party tonight!

Well I used Twitter but not got any at all I was on the link within 1s but they were all gone which begs the question is there just one. Similar to the Amazon Black Friday deals where there gone with 1s.

I would guess that they won't be giving out the golds for the "bigger" prizes through social media

The social media comps mostly give white/silver ones

the twitter feed links to pages where the flamedeer are released. but i was on the page indicated within seconds and the flamedeer were gone. :(

that being said i was just generally browsing and I got another flamedeer.

but it is exciting. one eye on the twitter feed one the website proper atm. not done anything quite like this before.

Its stupid, not everyone can use Twitter etc from work but can access Hotukdeals

Am under the impression that unless you spend you're life on hotukdeals you're chances are lowered.

To be honest it wasn't all that good didn't get a single thing they were gone within one second of being put out #fakedeer

I preferred the way it used to be! when you browsed HUKD reindeers automatically ended up in your collection! Bring the old way back HUKD :p

Just doesn't seem random if the mods can shed some light
#11
The new way is a bit rubbish because if you don't click in time you don't get anything.

I like the old way better too. I don't like the wall of flame idea either, one person has 19 silver's. If I had 19 silver's I would be swapping them with people who don't have any.

I believe its timed and linked to accounts/computer addresses . Sign in morning 20/30 mins later up one pops, then nothing and it doesn't matter how long you stay on the site. Later in day sign in and another pops up, then nothing. Evening ditto. They are not hidden on the site so it doesn't matter how many clicks you do, even if you just sit on home page one will pop up each session. I can get 3 in a day, morning, afternoon and evening. Social sites get clues to where they put out a deer so yes social media get a chance of finding one you don't. All competitions are supposed to be equal with no advantage yet people with social media get clues and extra deer.
I honestly think its computer address linked as signing out, clearing cookies etc does not work, get a deer in morning and you won't get another until hours later.
Would be interested in hearing others thoughts.



Does anyone get more than 3 in a day? Signing out, clearing cookies etc doesn't help so I believe they are using a programme to recognise computer addresses

Another one to add to this it does have benefits the site gets more views and people joining which is good but people should not win if say they have logged in once in 8 months if i remember that was the complaint last time inactive members winning.:p

Totally agree three a day although I haven't worked out quite how long you need to leave it. 7.45am this morning I got one. I logged in and out several times later and none until around 2pm. I tried again around 7pm and nothing and I am back now, been on for nearly 30 minutes and still nothing so just two today.

Here is how I believe it works as I have just caught my third for tonight.

Log on first time in a new day you should catch one within 5 minutes
Log in a second time at least 5-6 hours later and catch one within 15 minutes
Log in later in the evening, again at least 5-6 hours after your last one and it takes nearer 30 minutes to catch one.

Just my observations

Well its was crap this year worst year so far.
#27
Its free for us so why complain? Its money generator for the site, as is any competition.
#28
My theory was crap too I have managed just two in two days, I must admit I didn't enjoy it as much this year but have to agree, it is free so no use complaining.
