I'll let others have a go now before I get carried away, lol

top 10 Searches? (everyone.. not just members)
top 10 threads?
Cheapest hot item top 10? ie: Nintendo Wii and DS would be on there atm.


The Voucher search is a great idea since I usually check here to see it any vouchers are listed for the site I want to buy from. :thumbsup:

Can there be a tab by the search window to order results by Temp or Date rather than have to go into the advanced window? It would make the site a lot quicker to negotiate.

I think Admin's looking at this already.

An apology for forcing such a drastic change on the site against the wish of the vast majority of users with little or no consultation would do for a start.


Not helpful. Any further posts like this will be removed. Advanced warning there.

Duck,

I think if you took a vote on it, it would be a very helpful statement, unless you lot only want to hear praise :w00t:

Hi ascottishbloke, I've stated in other threads the rollout was not ideal and we made a lot of mistakes. I don't have any problem saying that! I'm going to write up a summary tomorrow or next few days reflecting on things and talking about why things were done the way they were.

I think duckmagicuk2 just means lets keep this thread on topic :)

Also, when people submit a deal/voucher can the time be logged instead of 20minutes ago?
I try to refresh every so often and after having a nose at various threads etc, its hard to remember how far back I've gone.......at least with a time, I can remember that IYSWIM:)

Ideas for sidebar:

Birthday announcements :whistling:
Todays hottest deal
Competitions due to expire today
A clock?
A calendar marked with important dates such as....bank holidays etc
On this day something happened

I've mentioned that a couple of times but it hasn't been addressed yet. :(

To answer the OP: Personally, I don't feel the need to see anything in the boxes so I'd rather the space be given back to the forum content than see it filled with something for the sake of it. :)

I will have a think on this one but please dont ever let it start to be adverts, lol
#12
Some fun suggestions there birdyboy!! I like the idea of the bank holiday dates. Maybe reminders of days when there won't be postal deliveries like bank holidays etc... and other important shopping-related reminders like that.

HUKD wouldn't ever add banner ads. :)

Don't know if this is possible but what if you put something where members could customise the background/posts to colours that suit them or in those lines where members can make adjustments to colours.Sounds daft does it:?

A picture of Mercedes McQueen off Hollyoaks.

It would pacify a lot of the whinging on here. How could anyone be angry after seeing her?

LOL shouldn't that read:

Reminders of when the Postal Service is not on strike/go slow and you may just get a delivery ?

No, I understand that. Rather than a set of pre-determined skins have a number of boxes like:
Post Background Colour
Thread Background Colour
Post Text Colour
Forum Text Colour
Background Colour
Header Colour

I don't think it'd be a good idea to have them in the bars on the right but it'd be cool if that was available in profiles lol.

Is that not what you can do with the two "All" tabs set anyway? :?

I would like to see a list of deals/vouchers that are about to expire.
How about a 'star' poster of the month too :)

How about a list of people online who are in your buddy list?

Weeks hottest deals, deals/vouchers expiring soon (might prompt people to 'grab it while they can'), a favourites box...where users could enter a few URLs for quick access, such as to their favourite threads or sites they use a lot while on HUKD (quidco, ebay, billybargain, ciao etc).

Sometimes i just refresh when im on the hot tab, there are newer posts in discused / new etc , cant really explain it better.

would be nice if this was "web2" and pushed new posts every 60 secs or so often into this box

Top Ten CURRENT deals.



Agreed, the top 10 (or 5) current hot deals, so I don't miss one while browsing the forums :)
#25
I agree with Cezne's point on time given.
At side : current hottest post in each category - deals, vouchers etc, but 'just about to expire' might be good as well.
#26
I hate to harp on about it but the missing 'Mark Forums Read' was my most useful tool on the site. Its loss means having to repeatedly scan posts I've scanned before.
#27
As posting Hot Deals is the lifeblood of HUKD could there be some way of tracking who is the current King or Queen of posting Hot Deals and showing say a league table down the side ?

Perhaps this could be extended to have some sort of Annual Trophy / Prize ?

I realise that there is a possibilty of abuse by voting deals hot or cold without justification, maybe there is a way round that ?

I guess also that posters in the Vouchers should not be forgotten ?

Anyway just putting possible ideas to paper. :)
#28
Well the obvious answer is some tips on how to get the best out of the site.
As it's no longer very intuitive - then a few of the more popular FAQ's and answers would be very useful for anyone who doesn't have time to read the feedback board (or even know where it is).
Especially newbies and I must admit us 'occasionals'.

a big picture of a cat. (really useful posting for my 300th eh!)

How about a game of darts with a pic of paul on for all thoughs members who want to take out their anger over the site changes!

Im sure this would help all the members who claim to have left the site but still visit and just don't sign in. (you know who you are!)

how about nothing

(I'm serious its taking up serious real estate that can be used to make the deals easier to read)

i disagree.

its much either to read WITH the box present. otherwise the text stretches right the way across like im making this post do and its very very annoying and hard to read dont you think so in fact i agree that the box should be there to stop annoying posters like me posting really long paragraphs!

Yeah, i couldn't believe how the site looked in that screen shot you posted earlier. That is really bad. Perhaps you should switch to firefox and use the new style i created. Makes the forum easier to read. See my post in Misc
