Ok so along with a few more bug fixes going live tonight, we’re also adding a couple of additional features which we hope will benefit deal hunters and those who are active in the deal sections.
Firstly, you now have the option to sign up to our daily email containing the top five deals. These are deals which gain the most heat daily and should appeal to those of you who like to look out for the best bargains our community has to offer.
The email is automated, should hit your inbox every evening and will be entirely based on the way the community as a whole decides to vote. You can sign up on the front page and if you decide to unsubscribe at any time, just opt out on the email itself.
Secondly, we’re making the sign up / sign in process easier for you. If an unregistered guest is browsing HUKD and sees a thread they’re interested in, all they have to do is input their email address and we’ll then create a username based on that. They can then comment. If that email is already registered or has previously been used, then the user will be prompted to input a password and will then be signed into their account.
Now before some of you (naming no names) get excited and start exploiting this, it’s not actually all that different to how it works now. You still aren’t permitted to sign up multiple usernames and if you do so, your registered account will receive infractions in the same way you would if you created new accounts now.
All comments made by previously unregistered members will go to a moderation queue before appearing on the site.
This method works well on several big sites and enhances new user experience, so hopefully it will work just as well on HUKD.
Keep thread on topic please so we can keep track of any issues specifically with the additions above.
