Its the same for everyone, the format for "catching" flamedeer has changed since last year.

If you miss any, they are re-offered again relatively quickly so that you have the chance to catch them again before you may leave the site.

I suspect that if you caught three, that was all you were going to catch; you have not missed four, but were just seeing repeated prompts for those that you were not quick enough to catch on previous occasions.

where do you find the code in the sun paper?

i just closed a page as the flamedeer window popped up!!

I have HUKD tab pinned in firefox, seen about 4 of these and keep missing them. Just now i refreshed the page, went back a minute later and it was there, clicked, gone. Not liking this new system whatsoever, think I'll give it a miss, not worth the hassle.

I close my hotukdeals browser when I am not using it, even if I am buying a deal.
Collected quite a few deer so far and got a gold red nose instant win.

i've missed all 3 today and i've clicked on them as soon as they appear, i'm starting to dislike this years flamedeer hunt oO
#15
I've only seen 2 today, caught one and missed one

My flamedeer are showing up far left of my screen so I cant click on them, does anyone know how to resolve this? I clicked on a link in a flamedeer post a few days ago and its changed all my layout. Just want to get back to normal. Any ideas?

Is this on a PC/Laptop or a smart device?
When I view this site on my iPhone (full site not the mobile site) I have to 'pinch' the screen so it zooms out further, then I can catch the deer.

Only seen one today... Do they pop up randomly or is there specific places they're more likely to be for instance..
Well I have a better chance of getting a deer if I actually click onto a deal or do the just show up randomly

As far as I can tell, they appear anywhere on the site... I've noticed they seem to appear every 4 hours.
Others say logging out and logging in through out the day has helped them.
All a bit of pot luck really.

Apparently the problem is with a cookie that was clicked on, reclicking on the cookie link has put the screen back to normal. Hopefully I can now catch the next flamedeer. It was actually on my laptop not a phone.

I've done the same thing. Where is the cookie link? Can't find it again now!

Its somewhere on the Flamedeer thread where a guy talks about switching between the old and new skin, was posted a few days ago. Don't have time to look for it now sorry

think this link swaps the site theme:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/?tsv=0
This link goes back to the 2011 theme:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/?tsv=2011-09

Just realised that I've been using the theme from earlier this year which might explain why I am missing deer.
From the Flamedeer portal:
Does this work on the old skin?
No, it only works on the current skin, mobile site and our new responsive skin.

Exactly the same here. when you 'use' the site looking at a link you then find you've missed them. Pointless. I am a daily site user and last year got loads but this time only one. It's not so much the prizes but it used to be fun whereas now it's just irritating.Not bothering anymore.
