I think there are more deals that save a 1p here and there that make it look like less decent deals
#2
And a lot less misprices too!

Agree

I dont know whether there are fewer deals or not. It does seem that way though.
There are definitely fewer people logging into the site these days as can be seen from the stats at the bottom of the page.

Defo fewer deals and most of them are for games / dvd's.

Not really, the record was set when the site was mentioned on the gadget show so it's not really a fair statistic anymore.

Totally agree there are still hot deals out there, its just that they are diluted by all the non deals that are posted.

It does seem like fewer deals and fewer people...Much more competitions though. It does feel the Mods are over zealous, there also seems like there is a lot of hostility coming from some long standing members and also too much leniency for trolls and spammers.

It puts people off coming on and if you do come on it seems there is no incentive to post a deal when you know someone is going to shoot you down with verbals or have it took down the pecking order by the mods because they want more deals from their 'affiliates' . Maybe I'm just too cynical...

that morrisons 'deal' shows how this site has changed. One of the top 5 hottest deals ever for a post that tells you that basically coinstar charges you for their service!

As well as the hundreds of terrible dvd's for £3 each.

I used to love this place for the missprices and real good savings.

Although, i shouldn't really complain as ive never really contributed any deals.

#14
i also find its hard to post a deal i've tried a cpl of times and the deal just disappears so don't bother now
#15
Awful lot of companies that used to have deals on here are no longer in business and not so many to take their place
#16
I used to post a deal or two......but got fed up with the "it was 50p cheaper two years ago" comments :roll:
#17
No I do not
#18
agree op

seems more dvd discs deals or tesco

no longer "proper" hot deals here sadly
#19
more like a whats the cheapest prices on memory cards, dvds and printers website now, wouldnt mine a missprice now and again..not like the good ole days

Also good if you have a problem that needs sorting .....or counselling....
#20
Yeh its ashame. I wouldnt be surprised if there were less deals being posted, people are being put off as the mods take it down without explanation.

That's because people post dupe deals as they don't search the site before they post up


In b4 the search doesn't work...
#22
Yep there sure are less HOT deals imo.

Probably due to them getting lost within the tonnes of duplicate supermarket posts for 10p off a tin of beans etc and the members who seem to have nothing better to do with themselves than post every ancient cd or dvd from play.com and HMV every month even tho its the same price of £2.99 and no less than you would expect to pay for old cd's and dvd's
#23
It's because everybody has an Acer Revo and a copy of Modern Warfare 2 now :w00t:

Sadness that is the problem :giggle:

I don't know about the fewer deals thing, as the amount of top-notch deals can fluctuate wildly from week to week. There are still some crackers out there. The site having so many more active posters year upon year means that you can miss some really good deals (which are maybe snowed over by the aforementioned £2.99 CDs/DVDs).

One thing that is definitely true, is that there are alot more moaners around on HUKD than there used to be, a fair chunk of them being long/medium-standing members - posting the same old same old.

You've all been here for at least a year, so it's a fair guess that the novelty wore off a long time ago.

I've been scrolling through crappy (to me) deals in this place since my first visit, nature of the beast. Nothing has changed.

a crap deal to you is another persons hot deal
#31
A good example here of why there are less "HOT" deals.

A moderator re-posting £2.99 cd a month after the original post and the item is exactly the same price as it was last month!

Lord knows how a moderator can see that as a "HOTUKDEAL" when its exactly the same deal as last month! Indeed a moderator should know better than re-post the same old stuff again and again

All it does is push NEW HOT deals further down the front page faster meaning less people will see them

And vice versa, although that fact I said "(to me)" should have made it clear to you that I already said that.
