They were in the FS/FT but been moved here as the goods are not actually being sold?
#2
can we have a big "freebee" thread or something then like the congrats one.

spammed, this should be in feedback.
#3
no longer allowed feedback i think too
#4
They should be in FS/FT, but have no feedback allowed for the "giveaway" IMO.

Competitions would be better.
#5
Well seeing as most are 'I'll pick someone at random'

Can't we have them under Competitions?
#6

smae it's getting out of control. People will do anything these days for some rep. But i have to say it's a very good gesture that people do it dont get me wrong.

It's more turned into a "jump on the free bandwagon" scenario, people have seen them in misc and decided to do it themselves..

no it doesn't - all it shows for certain is your presumptuous attitude (see my recent post on the psp thread)

Liddle ol' me
I find all this trying to second guess the winner's intentions surprising on this thread - Just because someone already has a psp is not the point. What about if they have a car? Does that exclude them too? Or more than £3000 savings in the bank? How about if they have no car but do have the savings? Will they only be allowed to accept the prize if they donate it to charity or give it to someone else? Trying to attach conditions is plain silly, and what's more it's not even yours to do so! Only the OP can decide that. And it's a lucky dip! But most disappointing is the presumption that the winner is just going to sell it on.. is it not shameful to try and shame others before they have even won it? I have a psp for example, but if I won this I would give it to my nephew or niece. Or is that now allowed...? lol -- All seems a bit like (premature) sour grapes to me.

no sour grapes here if it genuinly goes to someone who really wants it or it goes to someone who otherwise couldnt have one im all for it mate, i just think its very nieve to think out of all these people not one of them has the intention of selling it thats all:thumbsup:
#20
Oh 1/3 probably had intentions of selling it, close to 2/3 me thinks.
#21
Can i have some free money? :)
Not monoploy money and no zimbabwe dollars:thumbsup::w00t:
#22
there is a freebie forum they could go in
#23
Some very greedy people seem to be coming out of the woodwork.

AGREED.

That is for 'freebie deals', not personal items given away for free. People can vote on deals and the poster gain voting power through listing freebie deals, so it would be inappropriate to put personal items on there :thumbsup:
#26
I have a more interesting spin to add to the mix, but i'm unsure given the current backlash.

yes
not everyones out to get n sell on....there will always be people like that on a forum like this..its just life. i frequently visited the forsale/trade board... as i find it a great place to find deals for things i cant seem to find elsewhere..so i knew people were doing the freebies.
also as its a site to find deals/vouchers i think youll always find people joining just to nab a voucher code.. maybe im a bit rose tinted here but most people ive come across seem genuine and friendly..wanting to help.. and although im a newbie ive already tried.
and just to clarify - i of course went on the free psp thread, thought it was a jk..ive been after one of these for a while, and id have no thoughts about selling it on.. im a bad horder! ...

just putting my thoughts in.. :whistling:

I :lol: at this thread.

People moan when someone tries to sell something they got for free (sim cards etc), people moan when someone try to give something away for free (PSP etc), People moan when people buy more than 1 on a deal, People moan when the deal doesn't suit them, people moan when a freebie doesn't arrive and on and on and on and on.

Thank **** you don't have any real issues to moan at...........you may have a breakdown. lol

Could very well be 'hot' under the collar. :-D

I see nothing wrong in HUKD members giving stuff away to other members and starting a thread in Misc forum is the correct forum for it. I would have thought they should be thanked for their generosity.....
#36
I recently started such a thread to give away bits and bobs for the sheer sake of recycling. I'd rather anything I was going to send to the dump go to someone who actually wants it than sitting causing pollution and costing us more money.

Surely people can see the benifit in re-using things and helping out others?

I vote we have a separate section like the FS/FT section called Recycling or such like where people can post items they dont want that may be useful to someone else which they are giving away for free (not inc of p&p) no need for feedback or anything like that and let people get on with it.

What do you all think?
