Are HUKD and Mods losing it ?

rogparki Avatar
2y, 4m agoPosted 2 years, 4 months ago
I have noticed many complaints against the Moderators in the last week. In general I think they do a very hard job (as we all do ) . However my complaints to Admin just amount to "we're sorry shouldn't have happened etc " .Should this be accepted by members ? In my job ,as I suspect in most jobs ,you do it badly you are called to account and must explain -this does not appear to happen in the HUKD world .
I like to post and help members and appreciate when members do likewise for me - Surely that is what the site is about ?
I have no problem with criticism of my deals -its part of what this sites for - but I do respond robustly ,maybe sarcastically to inaccurate or childish comments re our post -as I believe we all should if this site is to retain credibility.
Why then do the Mods place a reply from me to a blatently inaccurate post in the "Awaiting Moderation " queue for 6 hours ? OK a bit of sarcasm in an attempt to deter such puerile posts ,but nothing abusive or insulting .
To me an apology is not enough ,I know it must be a difficult site to police but surely the Mods and Admin have to do much better .

They delete anything they don't like, and very rarely act when needed IMHO but no doubt this comment will vanish like many do.

You're not allowed an opinion on here anymore, especially when the truth hurts, many people will agree as from the last few days alone, there's been many threads brought to their attention regarding their attitudes, and if I'm being totally honest, it's a poor show all round from the hierarchy on here, mods don't moderate enough, and admin don't administrate enough.

I'm sure you'll find a few long standing members on here who contribute daily who'll back this up, if they see the comment before it gets removed.

I see Fern is back to her bullying ways :(

Oh hang on....you give the banter out but you don't like it back? Where am I bullying you or your mates? Are you not guilty of this yourself in the past? Pot, kettle & black come to mind. Knew it wouldn't be long before you threw that into the ring. I'm having a debate with you and your mates over your ridiculous claims that you are the heartbeat of this place and that HUKD has much to be thankful to you for! I see now VIP badge where you have been rewarded for your input to this site?


Did someone mention VIP? :|

Fair comment -but HUKD make lots of money from its members so should be held to account . The holier than thou ,take it or leave it ,mindset will cause many active members -like me - to leave .

I do far too much for the site regardless of what it says next to my username, it's beyond a joke just how bad the site is now, used it long enough and fed back more than my lion share to admin yet nothing changes, can't save a sinking ship and all that..

Agree its a great idea gone wrong ,In my Opinion because the site believes it is the sole Arbiter and has snared so many Lemmings . Intelligent folks like me have to paw their way through all the drivel to find a good deal and if posting a good deal are then stopped from posting a sarcastic riposte to some ridiculous comments . Its still a good site but getting harder to sift through the drivel day by day -and the Mods and Admin couldn't care that its going down the tubes !

Bottom line is, with any business ultimately, is money, but if the people earning the money don't acknowledge their source of income when they've an issue with something (ie users posting deals) then why should users post the deals, jus sayin'

On a serious note.....18000 to 3 is a bit of a crap ratio and could do with a little improvement.

When was the last time you seen an active mod, I haven't for any part of the evening, there's been feedback threads for them to address, nothing, ask questions about why merchants are banned, nothing, what part of moderating a site makes that acceptable to have no input from said mods, it's getting worse by the day, can't possibly get much worse before many of the users up and leave.

No one is on their high horse from what I can see, all the users seem to be asking for is moderators to moderate the site, it is their role after all.

HUKD gave you Helper status and this is how you repay them?

HUKD has a very hard job without its own turning on them. Someone once told me, never bite the hand that feeds you.

Andy Wedge especially is wasted here on HUKD, he is exceptionally talented and could earn 5 times the amount easily, but through love of the site and commitment to its users, he stays on to make HUKD a better place. To a lesser degree the same can be said of Sigma.

Think about that next time you want to criticise the site.

The one thing i notice about all the people who complain about how bad HUKD and its mods are. They are still here :{

I think being in a "awaiting moderation" queue for 6 hours + on Friday night demonstrates that . A totally inaccurate -quote " Not a Deal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!) their exclamation marks not mine was left on . My reply- "Yes but they haven't any stock -please check before making a fool of yourself in public " remained in the queue for 6+ hours . My complaint eventually wqas greeted with sorry from Admin 20 hours later ! What a way to run a chip shop !

OP... Do you expect a democratically elected leadership which is accountable to the HUKD community on a privately run site?

Andy is online.

Maybe they are not moderating and letting the site flow and only getting involved at a higher level. Find a level is difficult. Other sites are over moderated and others less. I think HUKD is within a reasonable range.

Fair Question - 5 mmmm!
1) Comps -not Hot or Cold -just Entered
2) Members allowed only 5 votes before posting a comment (their voting would then be locked until a comment is posted)
3) Ripostes to stupid ,childish and inaccurate posts in a thread should be allowed to be a bit sarcastic (but of course not insulting or defamatory)
4) If a comment /Riposte is held in a queue for " Moderation" it is sorted within say 10 mins
5) That HUKD realises its members are its Bread and butter and respects its members -HUKD would be nothing without its members
That do you for now - Its getting late :3

It's merely a status, I don't get anything from it, so the hand doesn't feed on here.

To me its seems the small minority that cause and or complain about problems.

Maybe we don't need more moderation but people need to get off there high horse and relax. If your not liking the thread just close the tab!

When was the last time you seen an active mod, I haven't for any part of the evening, there's been feedback threads for them to address, nothing, ask questions about why merchants are banned, nothing, what part of moderating a site makes that acceptable to have no input from said mods, it's getting worse by the day, can't possibly get much worse before many of the users up and leave.

No one is on their high horse from what I can see, all the users seem to be asking for is moderators to moderate the site, it is their role after all.

I'm shocked and disgusted by this.

I cant see you ever being promoted to MOD status now.

Wouldn't want tarred with the same brush so I wouldn't worry about me ever being a mod.

edit: see above!

if you got a reply from contact us then consider yourself lucky tbh

I do far too much for the site regardless of what it says next to my username, it's beyond a joke just how bad the site is now, used it long enough and fed back more than my lion share to admin yet nothing changes, can't save a sinking ship and all that..
Agree its a great idea gone wrong ,In my Opinion because the site believes it is the sole Arbiter and has snared so many Lemmings . Intelligent folks like me have to paw their way through all the drivel to find a good deal and if posting a good deal are then stopped from posting a sarcastic riposte to some ridiculous comments . Its still a good site but getting harder to sift through the drivel day by day -and the Mods and Admin couldn't care that its going down the tubes !

Bottom line is, with any business ultimately, is money, but if the people earning the money don't acknowledge their source of income when they've an issue with something (ie users posting deals) then why should users post the deals, jus sayin'

But yet you are still here (_;)

Someone needs to tidy up the mess that gets missed day in day out.

If its so bad then why are you still here?

This is fun ! Trouble is 99% of members are more interested in "Dickinsons Real Deal" than genuinely commenting upon whether a deal for say a Laptop or Television is or is not a good deal . I've learnt so much from comments left on this site but sadly having to ferret harder and harder to find them .It feels all the knowledgeable folks are starting to give this site a miss .

I'm a bit confused rogparki, first of all the thread was around mods, now the complaint is around members.

What is it you want. if you could change 5 things, what would they be and why?
Fair Question - 5 mmmm!
1) Comps -not Hot or Cold -just Entered
2) Members allowed only 5 votes before posting a comment (their voting would then be locked until a comment is posted)
3) Ripostes to stupid ,childish and inaccurate posts in a thread should be allowed to be a bit sarcastic (but of course not insulting or defamatory)
4) If a comment /Riposte is held in a queue for " Moderation" it is sorted within say 10 mins
5) That HUKD realises its members are its Bread and butter and respects its members -HUKD would be nothing without its members
That do you for now - Its getting late :3

I'd forfeit all those for just one.

Reply to us when we use 'contact us'.
That's Six-if we wanted and weren't tired we could get to 100 by Dawn :)
Time for bed ,interesting! chanci decided to remain stum -maybe hoping for a Mods job? - Might have to ditch your alterego though (_;) . I'm sure 2 usernames not allowed ,
