Same Here, MODs do not reply to messages and it is a awful selling forum experience.

Lokal is complete garbage and must be one of the worst strategic decisions ever made!

about time Lokal was removed from hotukdeals and let us go back to how it was before,I imagine it was for financial reasons(shock,horror)but it has not worked and you are losing customers because of it,whoever decided this must look at the feedback and reconsider or risk alienating more people from here,it strikes of pigheaded to still persevere with Lokal when it is obvious it does not work,so much for listening to customers!!

Have you been on today. It's the same advert hundreds of times.

Lokal is horrible. Spam ads, no moderation. iPhone 7 for £200 BT Only? totally not a scam. Userbase is almost dead there anyway. It's a huge shame a forum focused on the community has been replaced by a site that's clearly only focused on advertising and doesn't care for the user.

Just thought I'd say that /r/hardwareswapuk exists over on reddit. I moderate there and we actually enforce the use of PayPal Goods in most cases, spam is removed within 5 minutes, all scammers are investigated and in most cases reported, all suspicious ads removed. Mods take no money or get no benefit for moderating - unlike this Lokal business - we simply do it in our spare time to provide an alternative from eBay, Lokal, or Gumtree.

You don't have to imagine the reason; you could just read it for yourself:

Everybody knows the score about lokal.
1. I don't tend to use the feedback section unless I am giving feedback.
2. Usually the more people who give negative feedback to something, the more likely something will be done about it.
3. If it's an eye-sore to see threads like this, simply don't click on them. It's not hard, is it, Einstein!

Lokal is a total FAIL!

It's awful.

If it's not SCAM listings, its SPAM listings...then you have the multitude of inane and abusive comments on a number of listings, with little or no moderation.

The place is a joke. A shame.

Hi guys - Lokal isn't something we can change or improve ourselves. The feedback regarding it needs to be sent to them, sorry.
