Do you report the threads with the missing titles?

I know that this is not what your request is, but in the meantime, this needs to be done. :)

Exactly as thesaint says :) If people added prices, merchants etc to their deals in the first place, there wouldn't be an issue.

I agree with OP on this. It would be nice if people added the correct info to titles, but it's a fact that they don't. Scroll down deals in text only view. Missing prices, missing retailers, missing delivery costs etc

I do report posts to be updated & also add info in threads on a regular basis, but not all are subsequently updated. When you post a deal you populate a specific field with the price - it would be much simpler if this could then be migrated to the deal title as eglons has suggested.

I think it has been suggested before though by forum members :thumbsup:

I mentioned it a few weeks ago, although I'm sure I'm not the first to think of it!

If the system did it anyway then it would never ever be an issue!

No I don't I end up clicking in and clicking out. I'm a web developer myself and I'd be very dissappointed if I was asking my users to enter data twice. When we post deals we give you the price and the seller so it can't be beyond your developers to publish this in text only view (they do it in full details view).

While I'm on... wouldn't it also make sense to split out delivery and quidco when you post deals, this would ensure people think about them when posting.

I'm not admin, a super moderator, or a moderator. A simple minion like yourself(albeit a high class one). :)

I have no idea of how easy it is to implement, I can't even set up microsoft outlook, so no idea of whether you are asking a lot or not.

I just mean that in the meantime, it would help us(members) if you reported these threads so that it could be done manually. I do this regularly, also I report threads to be moved to the correct forums.

I think that it would be good if admin hand picked certain members and gave them the ability to add retailers and prices to thread titles.

How do we get suggestions heard on this site if it's not via feedback?... Do HUKD staff read and respond to things on here?

A moderator has responded HERE, it's up to admin at the end of the day. He doesn't respond to every thread though.

You can also use the "Contact us" form to send an e-mail.

I see you didnt get a reply to your (same) suggestion benjimoron!


No, but what do you expect when only 10 people read this forum!

I'f that's the best that a developer can manage then I'm wasting my time coming up with sensible suggestions... The replyt to Benji's is even more ridiculous, when you view deals in FULL DETAILS it DOES show the price... guess HUKD have only got one developer and they are on permanent holiday?

LOL..... I'd imagine Paul regrets saying that now! :whistling:


Probably not, max 10 people saw it!

I have just found out that I can change the "Topic" on other members threads by editing it in the original post, is this something everyone can do? Or is it because of my high rep(still climbing).

This thread was in "Entertainment", and I have changed it to "Electricals".

And what do you think everyone who has a grudge will now do, if it's not rep related:thinking:

I can change topic & availability, but you need someone with lower Rep than you to confirm if everyone can do this :thumbsup:


Yes, I can also change the availability. I didn't check that.

EDIT : wouldn't it be useful if we could add info to deal title (not remove existing info) on that screen as well possibly MODS ?


That is what I suggested earlier, but maybe not automatically dependant on Rep/voting power.

I don't see what grudges have to do with it. Serious business.

I would expect someone to see if they can do it also. I changed it to what I believed to be a more suitable "Topic".

I would suggest using the contact us button and not broadcasting it around the forum. Imho.
