I've warmed to it compared to the first day but certainly wouldn't vote it hot, nor would I vote it cold - just luke warm if anything. I find the three tabs at the top inferior to the last site (i..e hot, new and discussed) although the actual general appearance of the site is probably more appealing but the last site did all we needed it to.

Chuf - where did you get that moving girl from?

agrd but maybe there just isnt many out there atm?

definitely not as bad as i initially thought, but have to make clear my preferance for the old, and i'm a liberal student, far from being conservative, simply because of the ease of use of the old site irrelevent of the new features of the new site.
#13
I love this site. I registered a couple of days ago, and probably wouldn't have if it were just a bland ol' vBulletin forum. Already found a ton of bargains. Keep up the good work!
#14

Old style Hot UKDeals was much better, your trying to put too much on the page.
Cant stand the bit where people are trying to sell their old junk.
Tell them to go on Ebay to sell. At least there is some protection for buyers and sellers there and its a bit more organised than just having something stuck in the middle of a page of deals.
The site is getting away from its roots because it now seems that companies are using it for free advertising when they have dead stock they want rid of.
Its always been an interesting site but its getting too flashy and starting to look a bit too commercial.
The initial Idea of having a site that alerted people to REAL bargains and misprices was great but it now quite often looks like you are being USED by the big boys to sell their unwanted dead stock.
Stick at it though you are still doing a great service.

Isn't it a bit naughty to beg for rep?

Stores cannot, and never will be able to, post their own items on here. :)

Just been on that site, and perhaps my zone alarm is too sensitive, but it warned me about a block to a spy-site..........:thinking:

And where do you think this is happening? You realise it's regular people posting these deals, not the merchants?
#25
Anyway does it matter what us members think? cause it don't look like it will ever change back ,guess members opinions don't count for much anymore.

Shame we couldn't have a Poll to determine if it should revert back or not.

ah well i guess ill get use to it in time.

Nice of you to join the site just to post 3 times to say how much you like the new site :?:whistling:
I notice that most of the people what love this new site change are newbies :p

O yes? Well I'm bloddy well sick of this new "improved " Websh*te!
Half the time I try to follow a link to the site I get nowhere!

Can you give us an example?
banned#32
Ok, I'll click on a link from an email, then be told to log on, i do and then I'm told I don't have permission to access the page!!!!!
Also the few times I open the site from my Favourites list, i find items posted hours ago at the top!
Where are the new items I've had Emails about since then?
And when I do get to what I believe is the home page, what bloomin link takes me to new posts?
Yanno? Like the old, obviously duff site where I could go to new posts immediately!
I'd suggest this site was written by my granny but I'd never insult her like that!
This is typical of "Try our new Coke/7UP" etc when I was perfectly happy with the taste they go and change it!
Where'sthe sense in that???
This is typical ASDA/Sainsbury's tactic.
Wait till the customer knows where everything is then mess them about by moving stuff.
I have enjoyed this site, buying many bargains through it but not one since the improvement,,,,,sorry, the change!

Clever sales tactic. While they look for their regular purchases they stumble across things they have not noticed before and buy them. Result - increase in sales. Used to do the same in my shop and well worth the work involved.

These are threads that have been removed as they are spam, duplicates or self-promotion. There is quite a lot of threads being removed at the moment. We'd recommend using the RSS feeds rather than email updates, as it updates these things in real time.

You're viewing the discussed tab?

The "new" tab.

This is actually the deals which have been rated as HOT most recently (i.e. above a certain temperature in votes). It's EXACTLY THE SAME as the old home page. Click on NEW to see the deals in order of submission, or DISCUSSED to see them in order of last post on the thread.

Well, the moving stock ploy never works with me as I often go to the next supermarket where I know where things are.
I'm still not impressed with the messing about of what used to be a good, interesting and usefull site.

This site is all of those things, as it's still the same site. :) And the site is up these days, not down as it used to be. Admin has posted reasons for the change.

Well I may complain sometimes but I must also say that at least a response is always forthcoming from the organisers which shows how interested they are in their followers.
Im just one of those people who dont like change. Fuddy Duddy you may call me "BUT"
Keep up a great site.
