It's good to try and help people... dont let it put you off x x

I dont think being a geek is a bad thing lol
#2
I am a geek :oops:

Jk, Seriously the reason people do it cos it clears the 1st page of deals but for someone like me who only occasionally visits there its good as I tend to catch them second time around
#3
being a guy with bad memory, i dont remember deals posted last week, nvm 3 weeks.
I think savvy is the word.
Apparently the best money savers pay more attention than other people, so i guess we shouldn't be surprised by this.

I'd say they're not geeks if they just say it has been posted before. Maybe it's a little bit sad they know it's been posted before though..

You'll find alot of people on HUKD are like yourself, trying to find good deals as good prices. But like everywhere, there is a bunch of people who cry to the mods and those are the people that infuriate me.

I wouldn't take too much notice, don't take it personally.

Some people forget that others don't spend a good portion of their days/weeks on here.

Like that guy(no names) who always peeps up in ppl's threads saying "posted xxxxxxxx" - I've been so tempted just to say **** off to him.
#6
most people search if it has been posted b4 ...... if i see a deal then i always check ..... as you don't want 4 of the same deal on the pages
#7

They should've spammed it, not expired. So not very meticulous geeks.

I always thought it meant like a nerd. Not a nice word really. But kinda.. educated and with knowledge about a certain area.

That's what I said but in a nice way

Its one of the reasons I never post deals but if everyone thought that way this site would be nothing so take it on the chin OP and remember - you have a life :thumbsup:

Like someone who constantly keeps their nose in a computer or maths problems or science related things, I think?

I'll look it up....

The word geek is a slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, etc."

Like Einstein???

'Geeks' are good, do you mean 'nerds'?:whistling:

The thing with duplicates is that they are just that, so there are various reasons why it's a good thing to have something posted just the one time a month. For further discussion on that topic, check out threads in Feedback.

*Geek signing off with a Ciao*
not quite signing off -
just seen geek v nerd discussion above.
Hahaha!!

COM has wiki's first bit . It then goes on to more definitions ;
A person who is interested in technology, especially computing and new media. Geeks are adept with computers, and use the term hacker in a positive way, though not all are hackers themselves.
A person who relates academic subjects to the real world outside of academic studies; for example, using multivariate calculus to determine how they should correctly optimize the dimensions of a pan to bake a cake.
A person who has chosen concentration rather than conformity; one who passionately pursues skill (especially technical skill) and imagination, not mainstream social acceptance.
A person with a devotion to something in a way that places him or her outside the mainstream. This could be due to the intensity, depth, or subject of their interest. This definition is very broad but because many of these interests have mainstream endorsement and acceptance, the inclusion of some genres as "geeky" is heavily debated. Persons have been labeled as or chosen to identify as physics geeks, mathematics geeks, engineering geeks, sci-fi geeks, computer geeks, various science geeks, movie and film geeks (cinephile), comic book geeks, theatre geeks, history geeks, music geeks, art geeks, philosophy geeks, literature geeks, historical reenactment geeks and roleplay geeks.
A more recent school of thought sees Nerd as being a derogatory phrase, whilst Geek is simply a description. It is taken to be someone who is an enthusiast, often in things outside of the mainstream spectrum, of note is that in this definition, there is no reference to being socially inept in the slightest.

Actually, just in case someone though I was being serious, I am not a geek.

I'll research too.

Wikipedia say

The word geek is a slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, etc."[1] Formerly, the term referred to a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken, bat, snake or bugs.
#19
I think the term you were looking for is teachers (mod's) pet, or if I could put it into a phrase, people with no lives, lol.
#20
I better go before I become a troll and hijack this thread - sorry op

The HUKD rules are (in a nutshell) a deal can be reposted if the previous post is more than 1 month old.

If a duplicate deal is posted within that month long period then it should be spammed rather than expired

If, you spot a posted good deal that is, say for example 3 weeks old; rather than repost it (as it will be correctly spammed) the best thing to do is leave a comment; so it will bump up to the top of the "discussed" section. Better still, add some heat if it's wavering in the mid 80's so it will make the hot pages.

I think calling people "Geeks" for pointing out that a deal has already been posted wihin the 1 month period is a tad harsh; although as the Saint points out, they are not "very meticulous geeks", if they then expire it.

But, at least trying to ensure that the website is run according to the rules does not make someone a geek.
#22
i wouldn't say geek was the right term, I'm a geek. I think the term you were maybe looking for as has already been mentioned was perhaps modabee.

Geeks rule!!!!!!!

Except for you Andy, as I have just established ^ that it is a term denoting enthusiasm, knowledge and no ref to social ineptitude :-D :whistling:

It was a compliment. :roll:
You're a good guy trying to ensure that the site is being run according to the rules.:thumbsup:

The more I try to explain the geek thing the more ludicrous it will all sound, so I won't try.

Geeks have lovely families - it's one of the main attributes of being a geek!!

Those are the rules of the site so they shouldn't be ignored otherwise the deal is going to get spammed/removed anyway and just wastes more people's time.
