Am beginning to totally agree now. Though changes sometimes although not wanted are ok, why keep on changing things? Couldn't it all have been done in one go.... Are they trying to force us away????
#2
Yeah, I seen it and my immediate thought was "I'm leaving"...

...Then I thought "A change is as good as a rest" and carried on like normal as it makes no difference to the usability. :)

if you want circles can you at least leave them green

Also it would be nice if there was a section on the site for all tvs and all phones etc (obv sep sections)
So when the op is posting it goes into the electrical section and the tv section

Be nice to be able to search through tv deals

Just a though mods - but then this idea i sane so you wont do it

I am going out, so someone more knowledgeable(if possible) will tell you that you will have to search and how to.

There can't be a section/sub-section for everything. I want one for "Hot girls" but have to make do with the search function. :x
#5
Will there be a dragon at the start of these circles so it appears they are fire breathing to further enhance the new look next I wonder???
#6
God, you sound like the world has ended.
I quite like them.
#7
..and I have no opinion on them whatsoever..which is how any normal person would react.
#8
Am I missing something, what difference does it make? I don't know why they were changed, I think maybe the orange - red is meant to indicate you are heating up...but red, green, blue, purple, yellow...who cares? They are just images to represent rep!

Totally agree.

Red = Hot - not green!!!!

On second thoughts - I'm leaving unless those red dots are replaced by orange or red flames..... doesn't admin realise just how important these things are?:p:p:p

you know what ducky, its posts like yours that really pisses off members, these same members that have done shed loads for this site, maybe dan was referring to the fact whilst the admin/team are pissing around with pathetic little things like changing the colours of the rep buttons that bigger problems get left. I suggested a thread to admin ages ago, as the bug thread had got so long, to do a new one, and keep editing and adding to the op with new bugs that had been mentioned, shall i post a link to it to see exactly how informed we are? No we just get a "post it in the bug thread" or read thousands of posts to see if it has been mentioned then post, it really is becoming like yes we want all members to help, but in return we will do naff all in keeping you "the people that make this site" informed, and if you dare mention anything, then goodbye you'll be missed:x


here ya go, this is it http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/125732/site-update-bugs-tweak-update-threa/all/all/hot/
a bit of a joke, dont you think:roll:

And I don't think that's what Dan was referring to. I'd love him to stay...
#21
Awww c'mon sassie! It was just a joke honey :)
#22
sas people are always saying that its a shame the mods don't have a laugh or a joke like they used to. TBH I'm begining to see why. Everything they do and say is taken apart and analysed until some slight is found and then jumpped upon.

I'm not puley refering to your post here sass but I've seen it happen alot of late

Most of the decent members are still here dan, the ones that have left probably have their pride(if not banned) stopping them from coming back.

That's why I made a joke of you leaving because when it is taken seriously, people paint themselves into a corner and leave. I bet you that they(The "i'm off "members) still visit the site, and are reading this now.

It's mainly the Miscellaneous board that is most noticeable by their absence.

New people will join and life goes on.

Thanks sadie and jen. :)

I've always loved being here on HUKD. Almost three years for me as a member, and not long after that it'll be three years on board as a part of the team. It's been an amazing team to be a part of and it's seen a lot of changes as moderators, let along members and site designs, have come and go.

One of the reasons I loved being on here, helping out, was not only to post deals but to come over and chat to people too. I know who all of the big names are here, I know some better than others. It's a shame that some decided to move on because of something so petty as a site design. Sure, it could have been done better... that's been discussed to death, but jumping ship like many longstanding members of the community did was truly an over-exaggerated protest and it really hurt me to see that happen. What I found even more bizarre was the idea that they then blamed their decision to leave and cause trouble a plot by us to get rid of them... that Admin and the moderators all knew they'd leave if we changed the site and that's why it happened.

Sure, there were a few problems and there's still many more left. I was catching up on the mod chat this morning I think it was and saw that Admin and Emma had been discussing some of the site problems well after 3am... on a weekend between Christmas and New Year when I'm sure that they should be catching up on sleep from their celebrations. Site design features like the reputation bars being changed might seems stupid, but I'm sure that they are symbols of many things; the ongoing changes that the site is going through until it reaches near-perfection, and the escape that the site is having from its vBulletin constraints to our very own HotUKDeals to mould into a new image and useful tool for shoppers and online friends alike.

Just remember that the moderators and Paul, our really dear Admin, aren't ogres. Sure, you might not know us but we're people with feelings. Friendly people, charming people, attractive people, and lovely people. Maybe I should stop blowing my own trumpet there, but you get the idea. Just because we have a few more buttons to press and stop up a little bit later than a normal member would and we're very busy it doesn't make us any less human. We're here to help at every moment, which is what is taking up a lot of our time right now.

Although helping people get used to the new site and exploring it's many features myself has taken up a vast amount of my time, it can't be blamed for the slowdown of me posting mobile deals which some of you may have noticed. There's been some unstability in the market and it's really thrown me, and I've not been able to keep on top of this like I should because of a busy non-HotUKDeals side of my life lately. That's sorting itself out and I hope I can be back posting mobile deals once everything in life and HUKD has calmed down a little in the New Year.

Any suggestions, drop 'em in the box. :) Happy New Year all. 2008 is gonna be good!!

wow

thats a lot of typing
Be really nice to have the A-Z of vouchers section back

Quick question though - do the mods get paid anything for what they do or is it all voluntary ??

think you meant sadie there ducky - lol

I know that things went belly up, and admin has in a round about way sorted said this, but im sure most members like myself only wish to help and be kept informed by one thread, there is hundreds and thousands of posts on problems and bugs, most being continually duplicated day after day, and then wonder where peoples frustrations come from, yes we all know most of us hate the new site but we also know its here to stay, i cant be arsed searching through thousands of posts to see if a problem has been mentioned, then when we dont we get me, you or someone else saying oh yes its been mentioned numerous amounts of times, then we just feel well hang on here, we are doing all the finding, and you lot cant even be bothered to keep us all updated to what bugs have been found, if they are bugs or are here to stay, etc, etc etc We are not all complete techno's and most know our way around but thats about it, and i for one dont wanna spend my time continually posting the saem problems that have been posted weeks ago, one post would sort this out, but no we will carry on like this because.........well i dont know the because:?

Oh, I'd never seen that thread.

I posted it in a thread shortly after admin had posted in it(the thread), so thought there was a chance he'd read it.

It is really annoying though, re-finding my gems of wisdom is really difficult now. :oops:
#32
To me it looks like the rep bar has been changed to stay in keeping with the new colour scheme. Using appropriate colour to the reputation name.
I like it. Much neater. I never thought anyone would go of on a tangent about it tho' :-D

if you want circles can you at least leave them green

Also it would be nice if there was a section on the site for all tvs and all phones etc (obv sep sections)
So when the op is posting it goes into the electrical section and the tv section

Be nice to be able to search through tv deals

Just a though mods - but then this idea i sane so you wont do it


you can do that with the topics thing, there is already one for mobiles and tvs would come in under electricals, then select the deals forum then whichever tab you like to sort the posts by. you could also set up your custom tab to show you all mobile and electrical posts too if you like. :thumbsup:
