Quality of deals

The 1st page of the Hot Deals section of the forum has been filled up in an hour and a half, it's getting ridiculous, I can't be bothered sifting through all the crap that people are listing as a "Hot Deal" anymore.

That's what happens when more and more people join the site, more hot deals get posted.
#2
Not a lot we can do about it, except try to help out and educate people about good deals :?

You can use the front page filters to view deals, I find them very handy.

Don't forget, we all have a different opinion on what is a 'Hot Deal'.
'Hot Deals' that interest you may not interest me or other members.

But there is a growing trend of people posting games or DVDs which might be the cheapest on the net, but it also happens to be that price at 3 other online stores for example. I definitely would not class this as a hot deal.

I'm still flabbergasted i got the hottest deal ever! Certainly when i joined this site i didn't expect to!

My 200th Post!!! Yay!!!

fungus - use the front page instead if you just want to see the hottest deals. We'll be introducing some tools and layout over the next few months to make this easier and address the points you raised.

like a sample of britney spears - curious?

I thought the deal had to be voted hot enough to make the front page?

I posted a deal that got up to 200 degrees once, but I never saw it on the front page?

Apparently the collective voting power of HUKD says yes....

Yes it does, this should eliminate the bottom deals.

have to agree, used to be "tuned" into this site most of the day.
Lately have been put off and am visiting approx every other day.

Not sure what can be done about it though. Think the suggestion I made a while back about "I applied for this deal" button might make it more realistic, but on 2nd thoughts, that might mean that the front page becomes full of freebie deals.

I think the run up to chrismas and the January sales has probably caused a lot of not-that-great deals. It will hopefully return to quality over quantity soon.

It seems that a lot of people get very touchy when their deals get voted cold, most seem to take it as a personal attack. I can't remember what deal it was, but a few people said they weren't going to vote cold again because it's not worth the trouble after the deal poster got upset.

Maybe that's the reason for deals which obviously aren't hot being voted as such, people just aren't voting cold (or possibly voting 'warm') to try and not offend people. Touchy gits.
