Can you not suspend this Folk lark until it is sorted out once and for all?
The FS section is still running so why persist in running the folk lark when its broken?

I thought they'd tested it anyway?

Now everyone has been let loose on it they should be aware of all the bugs so should just stop it now until they're fixed.

Unfortunately it seems bugs we thought we had fixed are not always fixed. We are working on all of these (obviously ones like this are of highest importance).

so as its your error then HUKD will compensate anyone scammed I presume?

Otherwise you would have pulled FO.LK for the time being....

If people follow the rules and get all the info and check it etc like they should then they wouldn't have a problem. :)

Can't compensate for peoples stupidity else Paul would owe millions to the people on here. lol

but they wont...

on here is 1 thing, a lot rely on others 'policing' the forums but to now let the known scammers back on the new website (which is still unknown/new/confusing to people) due to a glitch?

if its not working and security is an issue then it should be pulled immediately until the glitch is fixed

+1

but from what admin has said in previous post is it is being addressed,
i agree that the fo.lk site should be pulled for the time being,
but the fs/ft guidlines would come into play anyway, so the site may not get pulled.

on another note

even in the fs/ft section all the scammers are still being able to use it, but theres few hawkeyed members that see this, others don't,

point im saying is scammers will still be able to access the site anyway.

Like i said though............it's still the buyers responsibility. Too much nannying nowdays with people too quick to blame others for their mistakes. At the end of the day if common sense is lacking then they can only blame themselves.

Banned members come back here as well just under new names so it's no different.
#19
unless I'm missing something glaringly obvious there isn't the same warning on folk that's at the top of every thread on here and I can't see any easy accesible link to any sort of rules. When this is added to the aforementioned glitches then surely it should be pulled until its sorted.

Cant this Folk be suspended for the time being????
[admin]#21
It's a serious problem. So is the problem of banned users signing up as new ones on HUKD. The loophole exists on HUKD and it's down to you guys helping us spot the scammers.

I agree that its not easy to stop banned/scammers signing back up etc, Im sure we spot all of them on a regular basis, But the loophole with fo.lk is pretty severe, as you do not know that the person who is banned is banned. unless you check back on hukd for that member, Im sure there are going to be a few that wont do this.

Then comes into play you mentioned, to keep an eye out for these banned/scammers , may not happen all the time, also with the amount of threads in fs/ft.

We are well aware you guys are looking into a solution, imo i still think it would be best to suspend fo.lk until solution is put in place.

Is there a way that the users title's , solar flare , flint, banned be able to get put on fo.lk? so its easier to point out the bad apples out more easily?

another glitch

It's getting ridiculous, people are ignoring the warning signs and continuing to deal with banned members even when it is pointed out to them. While all precautions rules etc have to be followed they wont be so until this mess is sorted then surely this has to be pulled.

Is it going to take a lawyers letter from from someone who has been scammed while using folk for this to be pulled?
#25
if people are ignoring people warning them of the dangers then nobody can be held responsible for people being scammed surely.......ebay cant be held responsible so how could hukd?

seems to be the usual suspects wanting to disrupt anythin g new that is introduced.....blogs now this

even admin admits this is a serious problem so in this case your following point doesn't seem so valid.

how so? hes asked for people to alert the admin team to the scammers and explained or suggested that its no different to people signing up with new user names on here. yet people are continuing to go on abot shutting it(fo:lk) down until the "problem" is sorted.....so surely that should apply to hukd then or is there some kind of difference you are wanting to point out?

Have you even read this thread? Its nothing like the sort, by admins own admission it's bugs and glitches that were meant to be fixed but havn't been yet that enable banned/suspended members to continue to post.

incorrect,its an additional problem as they can continue to post in threads using their banned id like this one
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/576439/fs-fifa10?p=7456622#post7456622

they were banned in another thread but the above was not closed,a deal could easily have been done in that thread if not for eagle eyed members pointing the ban out.

newbies cannot tell easily that they are banned due to the fo.lk formatting differences
#33
as already mentioned both sites rely on members of the community to help police both sites, i really dont know whats so difficult to comprehend? yes there may be a slight problem but the site is still in the teething stage. taking it offline is just daft as there is nothing stopping members signing up as new members with the same ip address so a little pointless........be alert and report any supicious activity the same as here and im sure it will all be sorted soon enough:)

there are ways of making sure you do not get scammed and if people still continue to ignore them then they deserve nothing less, i really dont think hukd could be held responsible the same as ebay cant......

keep the reports coming in and the whinging at a minimum:)

it gets worse, the glitch has an impact on user's feedback also
