New disign simply suks... Integration of private ads and 'normal' deals is a mistake - site is visited by thousands so ad for TomTom bought from Amazon half price is just a waste of time for THOUSANDS
Very dissapointing....

i like the new site also, once people are used to it they will look back and be glad it changed.
But dont know how to do a couple of things and dont know where to post to find the answers as there are that many posts at the minute..
#11
its much faster now and clean is good.
#12
I'm starting to find my feet with it now that I've found you need to click on both New and the Deals tab to filter out the 400 variations of the "I hate the new site" theme and actually get down to the bargains.

Its a much better look and I think the performance issues are unrelated as things were getting a bit clunky before the update. With over 4000 people hammering the site at any one time the server load must be huge so its not really that suprising.
#13
You Have to laugh at the co*k-up thats happened here, Its almost like the Gerald Ratner comment that killed his business.
People pay thousands for the web traffic that this site now recieves everyday for free!, I really dont think hotukdeals can sit back and leave the site as it is now because in a couple of weeks it will be dead.

Please bring back the old site this one is a disaster!!!:x

Seems like you have hit on the problem with this site - it is supposed to be about HOT DEALS "deal anachy", but to actually view them in effectively you have to first click a few buttons - the default view should be of the hot deals IMO.
If you are a regular here you know the deals must be somewhere and eventually get to them, but a new-comer - I am not sure what they would make of it. At the moment the first vew is so mixed up with various posts there doesn't seem to be a focus to the site, and I suspect that would put people off.

I do agree with you but I think its of benefit to new comers too. Also maybe I'm being stupid but if you load up hotukdeals.com isn't the default view the most recent additions that have been voted hot, the same as it was before the change?

In the past I've known a couple of people who also used this site that thought it consisted entirely of the front page. When I told them they had to click on the forum link to view all the deals that have been posted they said "what forum link?" The way it is now it seems, to my eyes, to be a much more joined up way of getting all the info across.

You are exactly right. The default view of hotukdeals.com is the newest hot deals.

The site was just perfect before, i really dont understand it
#20
I absoloutely hate it. Just Doesn't look right
#21
I also like the new site, people dislike change ------- they'll get used to it.
When there is change, people always hate. Always.
This new site is fine, the usability is as good as if not better than the last design.
The only thing I do not really like are the new forums...
#22
Well, many of us do not like change then if you say it like that. As a result 90% of HUKD member's are going elsewhere. A real shame, as HUKD was such a good site, where you find all your deals. A total shambles now. If you like it you must be viewing the old forum, somehow, or have permanent brain damage :)

also the font looks awful for me, change it to tahoma, verdana imo
#23
after an hour of sifting through the "I hate it" posts, not enough deals to bother today, my eyes hurt from the glare :x
