Old site back please - the old site was a classic "if it aint broke, dont try to fix it" - HotUKDeals

I agree, this new format is bloody awful, please revert back to orginal
#2
I concur, allthough I can see how it's good to push things forward I think the new site is too clinical. I think the functionality must be the most important factor in any website design and normally I expect to adapt to the new workings of a site change, however this overhaul has been more than a design change it's been a functionality change.
I say put it to poll and see how it fairs?

Hi johnxhamilton thanks for the feedback. We will be tightening up some of the spacing and design this weekend.

To view all unrated now you just click on the New tab as that will show you all the deals posted regardless of temperature.

So if you're on the front page go to Hot to see the hot voted deals, New to see newly posted ones and Discussed to see newly commented ones.

If you want to change the forum or category you can do that in the top header.

Hi Admin
Is it possible to get rid of that horrible green? it's the worst colour I've ever seen, let's have the classic colours back please!!!

i'm going to reserve judgement until i get used to it, but i have to say that first impressions last and i'm struggling with the format of the new site. still, i'll be giving it a go! :)

All things change and I liked the simplicity of the old site too (but not the colour scheme ;) ). But lets give this a few more days before naiing down the coffin?

I run it in Text Mode and its acceptable even if I can't yet find stuff.

Brave decision launching so close to Xmas - hope it doesn't damage the revenues too badly.

The sites so hard to use now with this new format, unless they change it back or do some thing better with the design than no one will use it, they will all go to the mse site :(

I agree with Prozak's comments above, it wasnt just a design change but a functionality change - which I think was a bit of an own goal by HUKD so close to Christmas. If they now start to listen to peoples complaints and we can see efforts to make it more understandable to use, then there may be some hope for the site - assuming they have learned from their mistakes. As for the apparent increase in the number of members, I think you will find that this was only because people needed to be members to leave comments - rather than new visitors to the site. At my place of work nearly everybody looks at the site and nicks promocodes or sees offers, but many have never signed up - until now, and the vast majority dont like the changes. So a bit of self reflection on the part of HUKD may avoid similar PR gaffs...

Just for info, I have just had an email from Admin censuring me for submitting similar postings to different peoples threads! I think everyone can see that I am not a prolific poster, and ironically the only reason I did so was because I couldnt find my way back to the original posting!

I sincerely hope this was not an attempt to stifle dissent, as that will backfire in a BIG way!

I've used hotukdeals for more than 2 years now, and benifitted no end from some of the deals.


Hopefully you will start submitting deals instead of leeching.

as a great lurker i find the site changes a bit off. This kind of site lives of its community and now the community has been hidden. One might argue that it has been integrated. but its just all a bit confusing. Maybe just a title on the second row of the menu would help make sense of things


my exact words to ducky yesterday where "it feels like the heart of the community has been ripped out"

I agree with that. I think it'll be tweaked this weekend.

I guess 'The Saint's login name is a bit of a misnomer, as his negativity is palpable - and seems to be a regular theme in his postings. Unless I am mistaken, the whole reason for the popularity of the site is down to the majority of ordinary users like myself who arent that computer literate but can benefit from getting that little bit more for their money from the 'establishment'. I wasnt aware that posting deals was compulsory, nor that users would be subjected to abuse for using the site for its intended purpose. I know that if I could actually work out how to sumbit a deal then I would....!

Seasons greetings

I agree. Even the "text only" option is awful.

If you want to sum it up, look at how many new deals are being posted. Now compare to before.
#17
Please please at least give us an option to view it in the old style.
I just cant get my head around the changes.

Ive carried out searchs and they come back in a strange order!

If you read the OP, he/she has stated that they have been 'using' HUKD for 2 years, yet to date has only got 3 posts to their name.

How much have they contributed? Yet states that they are will be 'Off elsewhere to another deal site'. small loss.

To my knowledge, no one stated that submitting deals was compulsory, where did you here that?

If you don't like my oxy-moronic name, you should be able to put me on 'Ignore', I will even guide you through the process if you are struggling, it will be the best 2 minutes you ever spent.

you having a bad day sweetie:w00t:


Hi.

I have had a good day actually. I took my son and 3 of my nephews to a pool party, I had to go in the pool as two of my nephews are quite young. :)

They are currently playing the PS2 eyetoy game, and I get to come on here and put the world to rights.
#20
Yesterday I'd have agreed with much of the above but having read Admin's post and the tweaking they've done on the site in the past 2 days its not so bad - at least in text mode.

Give it a little longer.

I'm with you "saint":thumbsup:
3 posts and they have all been to complain !!
Like saint says if you dont like it Shut the door on the way out and mind and put a coat on cos it's COLD out there.
Bye Bye !!! :p
#22
Anyone know why at the top of the deals are the posting times all over -1st oost says 45 secs ago, 2nd post 10mins, 3rd post 4 hours ,4th post 10 mins and so on !??
Why are they just not in order chronogically -as posted in the correct time sequence -that way you can see what was posted first and in order.
Sick of this ****** new look !
cant find posts i have posted either -talk about admin not listening to the majority !!! Sure way to lose members fast !
