Sorry to say but that's the inevitable consequence of the surge in membership..yes I preferred it when it was a smaller community but I guess word spreads around and this is what you get...to be honest my interest in HUKD is on the wane like you Antj87.

MSE is about saving money, and they will do anything moral or immoral as long as they are saving money!

Yes some of the deals are poo!!

TBH, I am slowly starting to lose interest in HUKD. The forum is overwhelmed by rubbish "deals" IMHO and it is quite difficult to find a real 'gem' in a pile of you know what.

Hopefully, Admin would implement better search engine before it is too late for me.

#21
I didn't know everybody felt like this. :-(
I just 'skip' over the 'crap' deals and look at the good ones, but that's how I've always 'done' it.
Like that Laptop deal, it was quite obvious nothing would come from it, so I did not even bother going there. Some people would have thought that was a right good deal. All I could see people getting from that, was Spam emails and spam snail mail. :x
#22
i agree it gets boring sometimes but i dont see why some feel so strongly about it, as Dino says just ignore whats not relevant to you, ive not seen a deal thats right for me for a while, wont stop me looking tho!
#23
:thinking: :thinking: havent got a clue said naw anyway:? :whistling: :whistling:
#24
I think it's because a lot of 'newbies' have joined and they want to contribute. Let 'them' settle in and I'm sure it will revert back to how everybody remembers it in time.
#25
I really can't see where the OP is coming from.

If there are no hot deals on tis forum it means that the retailers ARE NOT DOING ANY AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME!

I like reading some of the crap, what may not be a hot deal to some could well be and often is a hot deal to others. If people stop posting then the board WILL get boring, if anyone is bored of this board now then they clearly are not interested in this sort of thing. I actually like keeping this forum open in a browser window and nipping back in every so often to see that almost every category has been added to, that is much better than finding the forum dead and nothing has moved in the last two hours. that is what makes HUKD so interesting, because it is constantly moving and you never know, that hot deal may just be top of the pile next time you call!!!!

People can only post what they find, if the retailers are going through a stingy spell or they are now wise to checkout glitches then that is hardly the fault of HUKD.

Get over it, enjoy the community that we have here and keep your eye out for hot deals.

Yes this is the challenge, how we maintain a useful site with a surge in members. I think we have some good ideas though that will be coming online in the next few months. We're going to go through a bit of a re-jigging of front page/forums to try and assemble the information better, make good deals easier to find and make bad deals disappear ;) As more people come on the amount of chaff is going to increase, so our goals as members and mods is to use the powers we have to promote good deals and demote bad deals.

IT DOSNT BOTHER ANYONE HERE IF PEOPLE POST HOT DEALS!!!!!!!!!!!

ITS THE AMOUNT OF DEALS THAT ARNT HOT THAT ARE POSTED!

IF IM NOT INERESTED I JUST DONT LOOK BUT WHEN NOOBS POST STUFF THAT ISNT A DEAL (ITS A STANDARD PRICE) ITS F*CKING ANNOYING.

ALSO DOUBLE POSTING OR DEALS !!! YESTERDAY OR THE DAY B4 3 POSTS ON THE SAME ITEM AT THE SAME PLACE FOR THE SAME PRICE POSTED ABOUT 10 MINS AFTER EACH OTHER!!!!

PEOPLE NEED TO USE THERE EYES FIRST !

I KNOW THE FORUM WONT GET AS BAD AS MSE ONLY BECAUSE WEE HAVE PAUL AND EMMA AND OTHER GOOD MODS TO SORT THINGS OUT!

LOOK THERE IS ABOUT 3 PEOPLE IN THIS POST THAT HAVE STOPPED COMING TO THE SITE AS OFTEN BECAUSE OF THE "JUNK".

THANKS
[admin]#29
But one person's junk is another's treasure. I don't think it's the volume that needs to be reduced. there are two issues one is finding the stuff that interests you (and thus supressing that which doesn't) and the other is promoting the good of the stuff that interests you over the bad.
#30
i put "JUNK" in brackets coz i thought some 1 might say that !

it still dont resolve the problems of repeated items and non hot hot deals
#31
It dont half get on my man boobs when someone goes on find-games and lists everything thats 1p cheaper than anywhere else! grrr!
[admin]#32

The more members the better that gets though...vote Cold on non hot deals and hit "Spam" on duplicates. As long as people are doing this neither of those should hang around.

admin dont get me wrong i know the ways to resolve these problems!!!

i really think people should be forced to read the guides about stuff on sign -up would mean mods have less to do! and make forum better!!!

maybe its time i stop posting my annoyances on here lol

maybe ill just chill for a bit then come back under a new name and act like a noob who cant read!
[admin]#34
Nah it's fine to post your annoyances, I need to know all the things that anyone thinks could be improved. Any feedback is good feedback. I probably post too many responses and should just let people get on with complaining :)
#35
I have been on another forum for about 4 years now, really nice people, no flaming, no back stabbing. But every now and again we get swamped by porn images, spam attacks. Of course this has been brought to a sudden stop and in time 'they' go away.

With regards to HUKD, I lurked for a few months before joining but I am getting pretty bored with the same things or things of little interest or items with little change in their price blocking the front page.

I have always said - offers, similar to the Hot Deals page should be for the exclusive viewing of members ONLY, the laptop thing might have gone through if say 50 of us had done it but I heard that LX had in excess of 5000 orders, now are you telling me that 5000 members from here ordered??? don't think so.

In the old days you would ring your friends and tell them of a good deal, that meant that the old biddy next door did not find out about it until it was over or sorted out, now the whole World jumps on the bandwagon and in a few hours it bedlam.

Selective viewing is the key to good deals, good posts and general comments. I noticed about 3 new members who joined in the middle of the laptop saga. What can they do now they are members that they could not do the day before yesterday? Nothing.

For instance there was some £30 seats ex Manchester yesterday to Florida, including 2 week car rental thrown in, £120 return ticket but still a saving. There was only a few tickets, say 100 seats but it was easier to say nothing than 20,000 demanding a seat. Selective viewing I say.

Strangley for me the problem with HUKD is the bad vibe, people are getting more irrate when missprices don't go through, as well as blaming other members if they phone regarding a deal (as reputedly makes the company aware of the misprice), or asking for the thread to be deleted as they stand a better chance of getting their order if other people can't. It seems that a certain friendliness has left. Also there seems to be an increase of cold voting. I agree that we can't change that as you have be able to vote cold for poor deals, but it seems to be a regular thing, even on deals that then go on to be very hot. Even though most good deals get noticed anyway and voted hot, i just think it reinforces the bad vibe and the negative feel.

Every one has to start somewhere and we were all 'noobs' once, how about a welcome email sent upon sign up which states the do's and dont's ect? maybe pointing to the links to read before posting deals such as richiereas guide and i think it was raymans(?) post regarding submitting deals and posting pics ect, and explaining about referals ect, as ive noticed it is mainly new members that post these. This may eliminate the new members rushing to post a deal before researching and then getting dissapointed with the 'cold' votes, after all they are only trying to contribute :)

Also how about a couple of 'junior moderators' with less power than mods, maybe just to keep out spam posts and referals,post ft/fs 'rules' ect, to leave the mods o the 'bigger' stuff,or just generally to be there to keep extra eyes out?

i think thats y neg rep was removed i know a whole lot of people were getting neg rep coz ppl didnt get misprices ect!

I believe when there is a mis-price and people start getting cancellations, move that thread to its own space!
Why is is still on hot deals forum??? Its EXPIRED, so therefore make an EXPIRED thread, stick it all in there. :thumbsup:

Anyway, I still love this site regardless! ;-)

OOooh...junior mod??? Yes please! :thumbsup:
