Ok, so since hukd decided to switch us all to Lokal I seem to being encountering scammers all the time. Really wish that it was kept on this site as I felt that it could be trusted so much more with being able to view feedback, profiles and seeing members activity helped to give a good indication of the seller.

What other sites are people using now for selling and buying?

Lokal is awful, I can't believe how HUKD thought it would be a good idea. There was nothing with the original For Sale area on HUKD.

I also presume that there has been a decline in members who were actively selling on the For Sale threads, posting in other areas of HUKD now or worse yet they do not post any more on HUKD

HUKD has gone downhill over the last 12 months. Especially since FS/FT has gone. This combined with the percentage of trolls increasing here, I barely even bother logging in anymore.

It's just not thought out well at all.

If I were an outsider it doesn't look good. Most people find new sites by search.
Did you mean "local"! No Lokal.
Ok now have lots of sites for the Czech Republic!
Ok well we are in the UK so it will be "www.lokal.co.uk". No site doesn't exist!

Gives up goes back to FB, Gumtree, eBay.

HUKD marketing strikes again! *Rolls eyes*

Haha! Yeah, sometimes I think to look for an item on Lokal but a google search doesn't even show it. So I just give up.

I'd just say, when a mod comes across this. Rather than deleting the entire thread, take account of what is being said here as we are giving our opinions of something we valued.

I was just looking at the for sale thread. Normally it's booming with many new posts whereas now, last post was well over a month ago :{

On the plus side, the odds of winning the flamedeer comp will increase.

I would agree with all the above, but i'm worried I may be accused of being an embarrassment to the site and a trouble causer.

All these changes for the benefit of the members.. that reminds me how is that new Gaming news thread going 8)

Shocking site. I would never use it. Please bring it back into the HUKD community.

You can still see the "For Sale/Trade" Forum via the (Android) "app".

The only consistent approach to this site is inconsistency.

I've not really used the new lokal app. It reminds me of a copy of Shpock.

I miss fs/ft as if something seemed dodgy members would step in and point it out. Fooling a scam.

Got a few things for Sale, just thinking of taking it to cex to save hassle.

People are selling new games for 20 squids, amazon £100 vouchers for 80 etc!!!!

Going to lock this one up now as the migration has fully completed and the only questions/comments should be directed to Lokal (if they haven't already).
