We reserve the right to delete any deals, messages or posts and for any reason at all. It's also not a given right to expect an explanation why this is done either by PM or in a thread reply. However, we will try to let you know provided we have the time and ability to do so.

Well I guess someone was either in a rush or never had the ability then :)..

BTW i think whoever did it was wrong . It went hot in a few hours and could of added more info to the original thread so a merge would of been a better option for everyone to Bump the original thread that was posted 2 months ago But Mods know best hey..

If you'd simply bumped the original thread, everyone would've added the info to the first one in the 1st place. :)

Each deal is a seperate thread, we do not have the technical ability to "merge">

Depends what you search for and if you know how most effectively to search. E.g. I searched for +leather +digital +camera and it was the 2nd hit
#9
I searched for Leather Digital Camera Bag exactly the same title as the one I put up.
My point is, after reading your Mods can delete post for any reason.
Why can a mod spend time searching for something to see if its a dupe, but can't spend 20 seconds pm'ing the dupe poster? Im sure Admin would of done so or at least merged the new thread with the old one that was over 2 months old to bring the old deal back to life. I can understand if it was a recent thread but over 2 months ago.
#10
BTW thanks for answering my questions this thread might help others in the future.

Sorry i missed this bit we do not have the technical ability to "merge"

Well tbh i think Admin should give Mods the powers to merge then it would save a lot of confusion over deleted threads / post..

I didn't see the thread, but is it possible that someone reported the thread as a duplicate, and included the url of the original?

If this was done, the mod who removed it wouldn't need to search for the original thread anyway.

If you read the link of effective searching in emma's signature, it would take you 20 seconds to find it, which is considerably less time than it takes too submit a duplicate deal. :)
#13
Good point someone might of reported it I never thought of that. Tbh i thought the search worked better when i looked for the same title as it is in the store ie Argos but it looks like it picks up on key words.

BTW i'm not having a go @ Mods here i know they do a fantastic job . I just think a quick pm to the poster would not hurt. I can imagine how many dupe post there are here and it takes time to pm people and soft delete threads etc that's why the merge function in Admin control panel would do the trick.

Ok just read through this again i noticed you edited my post the one that said the S word with a * for the I.
Last edited by emmajk42 : Today at 10:14. Reason: Abuse of the word filter may lead to a ban

Well i have just searched for the exact word and it shows up in threads so how am i abusing a word filter that is not in place?

Posted 2 days ago

Today, I got up early, put on my long johns, dressed quietly, made coffee,
grabbed my clubs, slipped quietly into the garage, loaded my clubs into the car,
and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour.

There was snow mixed with the rain and the wind was blowing a gale.
I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered
that the weather would be bad throughout the day.


I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed.
There I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different
anticipation, and whispered 'The weather out there is terrible.'
She sleepily replied, 'I know, can you believe my stupid husband is
out golfing in that [COLOR="Red"]****[/COLOR].'

abuse of the swear filter is where you delibertaly change the format, mods do not read every post on here so unless reported or read by a mod then what do you expect them to do?
#16
Ok sussed it . You can get away with the whole word when you start a thread but not any post after that.
#17
Thanks for pointing that out, I've removed that word now. Unfortuately, the swear filter isn't working in the OP. :-(
#18
Thanks. Sorry for confusion just though i had seen **** words all over the site so I guess you can get away with using **** as a swear word but don't use any letters in it, **** are all over the site unedited.

when you use a swear word it automatically edits it to *****, so to get round it and still swear by adding a * or $ is a no no, although as ducky as said for some reason the swear filter doesnt work in the opening post
#20
Yes I guessed that but I can just use four stars like this ..
I think this thread is ****

I have seen the swear word used like this all over the site I don't know if they word is being filtered of if they are just using 4 or 5 stars to get away with swearing. I must add that most is light hearted ie: that company is ****
#21
If you type a swear word, each letter is automatically replaced by a star. :)

well its a bit of a hard one really, as swearing shouldnt even be part of hukd, but if you type something you shouldnt realistically the swear filter should kick in (except in op) although i have seen some people have their knuckles rapped when obviously the swear filter had edited the word rather than the person just typing the stars (if you get what i mean)
#23
Ok thanks for that I have gone way off subject here lol. It is very very rare I ever swear and if I did I would edit the word so it is not the full blown word . I never knew that it was against the rules by doing this but now i do:)..

I still don't know if just using all stars is though..

how would one know, i would imagine it would be assumed the swear filter had done it:?
#25
Lol yes its a strange one because by the look of it you can get into trouble for not swearing ie using a star * for a S for eg. But you don't get into trouble for swearing ie: using the whole word. I have checked and every post I looked at and there are page after page I have never seen a Mod intervene.

No, people only get their "knuckles rapped" when they have replaced letters in the world.

We don't usually infract for it unless the person is doing it repeatedly. They're either PM'med or sent a "yellow card" warning (which, in theory, is only like getting a PM anyway).

As you say, there isn't really any reason to swear on HUKD.

i have seen people get their knucles rapped when the just all stars have been used, like i said mods dont read threads unless reported, well apart form in here, as apparently admin or his team read all posts in here, so if you wanna swear dont do it in feedback - lol

i have seen members get told off when they have not used the word, because the swear filter has starred it, and if ever come across the posts i will post them here, i also remember one (if they read this please step forward) arguing that the swear filter had starred his post, and the mod wasnt having any of it, and said swearing was not on and accused them of abusing the swear filter but they hadnt abused it
#29
I suppose we have brought up a few points here for Admin to look at so some good might come out of this thread lol.
My main point to Admin is:
Can Mods have powers to merge threads instead of deleting them as it will act as a bump and bring the original deal back to life and it would still give credit to the OP?.

Wouldn't it be just better to search properly? :?

Merged threads are messy.

not everyone is aware you need to search with + and - in their search, and even those who are, like me, they probably forget
#32
Not everyone has the search skills here come to think of it not many know how to post properly. So surely its better to merge and the OP will still get any credit from the original post they made.
#33
As thesaint says, merged threads can be awkward - especially if there have been posts in the original thread since the new one was started, as the posts would be very out of order.

We do usually pick up on dupes before they get any replies. It's unfortunate that we didn't in this circumstance.

I am referring to Admin giving the ability to merge threads that are posted in the "Deals" forum like the OP is requesting.
So that is why I am saying "Merged threads are messy".

Threads can be merged, but it seems not within the deal forum.

Edit:Ducky has clarified it above^^^ :)

No. I'm just saying that even if we could, it could make some messy threads.

i thought the new forum meant you could now merge or move any threads, no matter what board, but then emma said you cant merge, this place sometimes gets more confusing by the minute - lol

Hehe. We can move them a lot more easily but we can't merge them.

I just wish there was some consitency to the whole 'dupe' thread thing. It seems a bit harsh to delete a thread that is a dupe of something that's over 2 months old, where as other threads are allowed when they are a dupe of something only a few weeks old. :?

Is that just the deals forum?

I remember a thread of mine being merged in Misc.
