agreed, there should be a reason given
#2
Expired already?

Classic.
#3
This is wrong
#4
It was deleted because it was another voucher thread. See, not even a mod and I got that one.....
#5
Not all threads disappear due to mod involvement.

@ Shengis

That one does come into mind. Yes. But I'm talking in general. There has been countless times when threads disapear into thin air and you have the OPS running into misc to try to find out what has happened.

the mods never delete a thread, they will lock the thread and leave a message or spam the thread and send the op a pm... 99% of thread disappearances are member spammed, thats because members see the thread as a duplicate

It's not the end of the world and if you had searched in the feedback forum you would have seen 100's of threads just like this

Which brings me to say, I have absolutely had enough with these lunatic wanabe mods on this site.

Seriously, they need to get a life.

The hukd community relies of members spamming, reporting and expiring threads to keep the forums running fine.
The mods can't be online 24/7 so by letting the members have the choice, keeps the forums running smoothly

If it was another voucher thread then why didn't you use the one started by JB?

It was probably spammed as per this thread

Just looked through your old threads and eventually found one that had been spammed. As it had been member spammed that could explain why you didn't get a PM explaining why the mods had deleted it; but I'm thinking it was correctly member spammed as it was a duplicate

I have also unexpired this thread for you as it was accidentally expired by another member rather than a moderator

From HUKD rules : -
There are several reasons a thread could be removed, in most cases a mod/Admin should message you with the reason (they are busy, so be patient!). Here are some examples:
The post was for an item on eBay or Amazon Marketplace, these are not allowed on HotUKDeals (or any other auction/marketplace site where someone could list their item for sale and then list it as a 'Hot Deal' on this site). We also do not permit eBay based businesses.
The item has already been listed by another member. Before posting a deal, do a search to check it's not already posted, and if your post is removed without an explanation, search for the same item as it may have been listed at almost the same time as yours.
The deal may be moved to a 'private' forum soon after posting if a mod feels it needs to be checked out. Be patient as it is then likely to be put back for public viewing.
If it looks like the original poster is self promoting an item/merchant the post is likely to be removed.
If the deal is regarded as 'spam' the deal will be removed.


If ever a thread is spammed and you want to know where it went please use this thread HERE and either a moderator will answer your question, but more likely the members themselves will answer it. More often than not a thread is spammed as it is breaking one of the above rules; or in the case of Misc it is either a duplicate and / or it is breaking a number of HUKD rules. You can read the full "Newcomers advice on HotUKDeals & general forum usage" HERE and the "HUKD Code of Conduct" HERE. Within these two threads it goes into more detail why certain threads are removed.

But none of your threads have been removed by the mods which explains why no moderator has ever PMd you to explain why they removed it.

Also insulting other members by calling them "lunatic wannabe mods" who should "get a life" is totally out of order.We rely on members being on the ball and correctly spamming threads that need spamming as the moderators cannot be everywhere all of the time.

i think we should just have one mod, a head honcho. The members should get to vote who! I vote andywedge even though he's a dirty city fan!!

Not that it bothers me, but i posted a free delivery code for Dorothy Perkins a couple of weeks back and they deleted it without messaging me or anything. And yes, i did search everywhere to see if there was one the same but there wasn't.


it was in all probability member spammed xx
