Check your PMs please Crazylegs.
#2
I'm still none the wiser Did you remove it or move it as I still cannot find it...Ray said he has moved it but to where?.....:?
#3
He has removed it - it was from an amazon marketplace seller, which we do not allow on the forums.
#4
May I ask why you do not allow amazon marketplace sellers on the forums...
#5
We don't allow any form of self-promotion. We do not allow eBay sellers, and therefore amazon marketplace sellers, as someone could simply come on here and posts their own deal :)

Uh ok thankyou for the explanation, It would of been nice and good manners to have let me know exactly what you have just told me and why you removed the post and for what reason...:-(

Anyhow I looked for a deal on these particular items and the best I could find was from this particular seller through Amazon..I am sorry if I did anything wrong..

Just wanted to alert people to the brilliant deal I had found...Which I thought this site was all about, I was obviously wrong...:giggle:

No, it's just that it's from an individual seller. Amazon deals can be listed, but not Amazon Marketplace. Otherwise we'd just be listing eBay auctions and Amazon Marketplace items, which is what eBay and Amazon is for. There's also the fact that these are individuals and not companies, so they are less likely to be reliable or have enough stock to cover the load they'd get from a HotUKDeal surge.

You received a PM about it, you obviously didn't fully understand why the post was removed, but you were told and you could have replied to the PM to get further info...what more do you want - I reckon on most boards the mods wouldn't even take the time to PM at all

I know that's true, from personal experience ;-)

Sorry if my reply wasn't precise enough, but I did explain briefly as below.

Hi crazylegs,

Sorry I had to move your post for the TomTom case at Amazon, because the seller was from Amazon Marketplace and not Amazon itself.

Thanks for posting though,

best Regards,

Ray.

I've had loads of posts removed for one reason or another, the mods normally tell you why and Rays PM explains why yours was removed.
I don't understand your comment.

No one is against you posting deals here crazylegs.

Any decisions about Marketplace/eBay sales, private sales and the like have been made by the staff for good reason, to help the site run smoothly and spam-free.

As far as I can see rayman provided a reason, and would have provided a more in-depth explanation if you had replied and requested one.

There aren't a large number of mods. We have 23,787 users and about 10 members of staff, all of whom have other jobs or commitments and therefore can't provide an in-depth response to all problems. The staff here are by far some of the friendliest guys on the internet. We aren't here to get you, we aren't here to be mean and nasty and remove everyone's deals. We just remove things that we have decided is unfit as it will encourage people to come here and spam our forum with their own eBay/marketplace sales, we keep the peace and post deals too. Many other sites wouldn't have had the courtesy to tell you that the post had even been removed, and you'd have had to trawl through an FAQ until you'd narrowed it down to a few possibilites.

We're all friends here, and the site works on a fair, unbiased way. It's very much run on the same principals as Google... "do no evil".

If you have any further queries, then feel free to post them up here and they will be answered in the best possible manner.

:thumbsup:

Good response ducky..hope you're in better spirits.

I PM'd you crazylegs asking for the market place link but had no response....would the MODS please advise if it would be OK to put a post on HUKD that said "please PM me if you need advice to get a cheap ???" or would that be considered a scam?...I think it probably would.
#16
I don't think we'd allow that either currychops. It works on the basis that if something is listed on Amazon Marketplace or eBay then the buyers will find it...
#17
Thanks Ducky..that confirms what I thought.

Obviously not or they wouldn't all be PM'ing me for the deal as they can't find it after searching for it...:giggle:

What a bunch of monkeys...:giggle: :p

It's the rules of the forum crazylegs and I don't appreciate it when people push their luck when they've been given helpful and friendly advice from the mods.

We don't allow eBay/Amazon marketplace or any other private seller listings in the Hot Deals forum.
