with every post in here you are knocking some elses post down the board, hardly fair,

i would say get it up and running without mucking up things here before adding anything
#6
So you don't take notice of any of the feedback I sent last time? Atleast 8 pms and 1 thing changed!
Font is too big for the listings, would be nice for a change of font too.
Background colour isn't nice
Needs a pm alert at the top where it says your profile etc. (like hukd has)
Next button on the pages at the bottom (as I always miss if a thread has anymore pages)
Also a last post?
#7
Different colour schemes, I'm not too big on the big white spaces, looks unfinished.

Also there are a lot of listings that are idle, have been expired, or ignored, but are still in existence, and should instead be in archives/closed listings. These are clogging up the pages.

Finally, there is no mobiles category on FOLK, which I find very useful on HUKD, maybe its something that can be implemented.

Castlewellan for me......where ever that is

would be nice if we can bid for items too ( i know it might sound like some other bidding sites) but still something going for.
sometimes we wont know how much the value of some phone/ cd/ clothes might be. and it might be worth a lot more than what we think, so letting people bid on items gives the best price for the seller. And nobody can comment saying 'i will take it' even before pics are up!!!!! in this way everyone gets their chance on the item- u like it ,you bid more!!! Well just a suggestion!!

*4 bumps would be good

*OP can close the thread, without it being bumped.

*a more detailed form style listing, e.g. condition, colour, size etc as to not incur bumps by proxy


+1!

But I think 3 bumps is fair. Otherwise all threads will be consisting of people bumping 4 times and no-ones actually been interested if you know what I mean?

The avi I have on FO.LK was one I used on HUKD from about 3 months ago
Negative feedback removed from HUKD is not removed from FO.LK..still showing in ther
If you update the OP of your thread in FO.LK it does not update in HUKD
Spammed threads by mods ,are still visible in FO.LK,not HUKD
Report button does not work in FO.LK
Deleted PM's from HUKD still appear in FO.LK

All the above have been reported on previous occasions and are still outstanding

Pics need to be made compulsory as the amount of work caused asking for them and free bumps they get is unfair.

4 bumps is probably needed because of how busy it is on there

Also anyone who gets 3 negs or more should have their account reviewed by a mod to see if they are fit to continue trading

That's a good idea, 3 legitimate negatives are a cause of concern, although some people do get unfairly negatived :)

Just an addition http://fo.lk/community/all/new (further to a request when Fo.lk first launched) so feel free to use that to post up discussion threads like this one :)

I agree in all those in bold

i want my neg removed on fo.lk please i have asked this ages ago


Ability to edit posts you make also on fo.lk

Still sync issues with posts some not appearing on hukd side but are on fo.lk side

A related items feature would be nice, either in deals or FS / FT or even both.

So for example if I was looking at a thread selling a Wii i'd be shown links to these;

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/604274/wii-console-white-or-black-with-fif

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/613922/fs-softmodded-wii-110-collected-lon

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/615216/fs-selling-wii-console-with-5-games

It would help with cross referencing for pricing both used and new and also highlight other threads that you might have missed.

Perhaps a feature to hide / show the above too just in case some people don't like it.

I agree very much with these!! :)

Automatically delete thread that have had no posts for a certain number of days and/or used their bumps. Saves searching for something under 'not expired' and finding things from months ago. Know i'd find it useful :thumbsup:

The threads need to be saved so people can refer back to them for various reasons such as sales history/feedback etc etc

Agree with the search being a pain though

More of an old current feature on the Hotukdeals side,

Can Multi-Reply be added to fo.lk?

I had 3 posts i was going to reply to on fo.lk however i cant as there is no multi quote/reply feature.

Thanks

The amount of categories on AVForums.co.uk is much better, it really helps both the seller and buyer as you can actually find the things you are looking for!

Also only showing the title, and in smaller font would be a welcome addition, you could see more of the threads on one page and would give people who post only to find 5 posts bumped ahead of theirs in one minute a chance to be seen. (a la AVForums)

I also find the bumping rules a bit of a farce, 1 bump every 24hrs might be better, with each thread having unlimited bumps. Couple that with the previous suggestion would help. Also due to this it would be better to restrict each member to 1 thread at a time in each section.

Josh

(Just take a look at the AVForums system, their fourm is sooo much easier to use. Although I prefer the PMing on here and the profile section.)

i had a problem with listings not appearing on HUKD when posted on FOLK - but was allowed to expire and re-list so not a huge problem.

I like the fact you can close and re-list after 7 days of no activity on the post.

My address came up as somewhere else too - but i managed to work out how to change where i am - and it has stayed the same - so far !

I must say though - i am abit wary of using it as the listing didn't show - and some of the others take a while to show on HUKD.
#27
how do you vote hot or cold?
[admin]#28
There's no voting on here! It's fs/ft not deals :)
#29
Fix the million quid bug, when it says you have put it up for £3 but it says £3,000,000 for it on the thread.

Change the categories available, entertainment could mean anything.
#30
I would like to recommend the rules be change slightly so that if you are listing loads of items in 1 day / week, you should consider listing them in 1 thread or the threads should be merged, but unsure if this affects fo.lk, the amount of times I see 1 username filling the HUKDs for sale thread is beyond a joke.
