Oh My God, I Cant Believe It!!!

Hi, you've probably all seen one of the deals I posted about the LoveHoney sale -

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/250425/adult-site-lovehoney-clearance-sale

And some of you probably saw when i posted a thread explaining that one of the founders had messaged me on here saying Thanks etc.

Well he has just sent me a 2nd message saying I can make an order for up to £50 as their way of saying Thank-you for the extra business from here.

Im was shocked that someone bothered to even say thank-you and now this.

I HAVE NOT ACCEPTED THIS and I am now banned from posting any other deals about their site! STUPID!!!

its good but don't shout it from the roof tops hun, as it sort of makes you an accessory (for want of a better word) to that site as you got money for refferals (indirectly if you understand me), meaning any future deals you post might get removed (might).

Nice of them though.

well done...nice to be recognised for your work

now if Play could do that for me seeing as how most deals I post are from them...

no coincidence the Flux Capacitor actually sold out after it became the hottest deal of the week.....£99.99 each and they sold out...where's my recognition PLAY????? :x

Not at all. I'd be really p'eed off if any got removed as I post them deals because they are good deals and a great company. I used them quite a bit before.
When i post them deals, i take quite a bit of slack from some HUKDers and I would still put as new deal up.
I havent even accepted the offer yet as i emailed back saying he didnt have to do that and thats not the reason i did it and is he sure as Not many others would offer that.

Thanks.

IOM is right Holly - if you intend to post anymore Love Honey deals you had best check with a mod first......otherwise you can be accused of gaining financially. HDUK are very sensitive about this - look at the thread in feedback about a manager from Morrisons.....

Well thanks for worrying. I will do that if i am going to post another deal but i am not gaining financially as i havent accepted the offer and I dont post deals to get things for free.
If that was my aim i wouldnt of made this thread as i would hide the fact, i made this thread so people could see what a enuine and good company it is.
Thanks.

Unfortunately that is now the case, as you are being paid to promote a merchant it invalidates your submissions for them.

That is ridiculous!! As i have said 3 times, I havent accepted anything and you can look at my Pms to verify that.
So if i havent accepted, i havent surely??

Just get somebody else to post them for you! no need to cry about it.

surely as this was not expected and is a gift from another member this can be let off?! as Hollypinder says she hasn't even accepted it. She has been posting deals for this company for donkeys and surely this just shows the success of this site?

To me thats almost like punishing her for doing a good job!

Seems this offer was a gift to me rather than a payment too :?

Thanks, I agree!! I guess the answer is to keep your mouth shut then you wont be punished. I thought in this day and age it pays to tell the truth and be open but obviously not on this site.
#24
To be fair, if she has been posting deals for the company for ages, maybe she DOES work for them? like Avon or something lol. I'm not saying you do, just that you COULD, people always just assume.

Also nearly every thread you start, starts with 'OMG, or Oh My God'....get a grip :/

ah... confession time... I used mine to go back before you placed your post and then took the credit. Play gave me £200 of vouchers for the business generated!

EDIT - Which I obviously didn't accept... money being worthless in the future and all...

Holly...I think it is nice that someone has taken the trouble of thanking you as clearly the post has had a positive effect on LH's sales! - and I would agree it is more of a gift than any kind of payment.

But...I also think Ray, IOM & Gari are right - take this to its conclusion. People promoting other sales sites and getting something in return...even if it is a gift. It could get way out of control.

You posted in good faith and It was obviously a good deal - so I wouldnt get stressed over it. Keep posting em I say.
:thumbsup:

Well no, actually, it's not, as I said, everybody is just assuming she isn't an affiliate, I was just saying it IS a POSSIBILITY. And MAYBE others do work for companies that are constantly being promoted, especially new, or ones people have never heard of before....
At the end of the day, I do not care either way, and if I was to care, I'd say she doesn't work for them, but there are always possibilities...
#32
I understand why the rules governing self promotion are out there but a tiny bit of common sense would go a long way some times...
#33
Anyway, take the voucher or whatever it is, so what if you can't post deals for the site anymore, just get somebody else to do it, you've earnt £50, if the MOD's on this site want to be that uptight then it's their problem that they don't have a grip on reality.

£50 worth of sex toys, why are you not taking that?

thing is this rule isnt at all clear...there are people that post deals all the time on here that work for those companies. I remember a thread where Sassie pointed out one such person doing this to Admin, yet they still post those deals

in this case it would be unfair to punish Holly and I think she should accept and be allowed to still post deals...this was a gift to say thank you not a payment and I think it is a testiment to the sites success

HUKD should celebrate these type of things not condemn them... But hey, that's just my opinion in these troubled times...

I think you mean this thread
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/242324/a-note-on-self-promotion-online-or-/

It also explains why the mods and admin are ultra cautious about this....I think there are a significant number of deals removed by the mods (which we never see - to prevent this becoming a "marketing tool" for companies).
#38
Sorry I'm not wanting to create a storm, if anything I was wanting the thread removed, just to avoid future issues as i've seen it before, a gift is still a form of payment, like me giving someone a gift card etc.

I'm sure this probably goes on a lot behind the scenes and HUKD do their best to tighten it, I mean most members post for basically the good of others (as you did yourself), so thats where problems start, with refferal links, people posting on behalf of their companies etc.

I don't think I made my point very clear, and I can't deal with getting into an argument with people that spend all day on the internet, probably researching argument techniques in between posting on here.
Maybe she shouldn't have been so quick to tell anyone, she's been here long enough, she should probably know how.....mods would react.
