Very interesting.
Do you know if this article is in the Paper edition?
#2
OMG! I actually recognise and remember one of those deals, as i bought the item!
#3
Wow, how funky and cool :) Interesting that we are being thrust into the limelight rather than MSE!

But was we've been saying in the wii thread, (naughty of us, sorry), it's not good news. Deals will go quicker, more abuse of deals etc. New blood is good but now the deals will expire so much quicker
#5
Ah glad someone started a threat on this. I hiijacked someone else's post about this. MSE has been featured on the TV and in papers before.

Like a previous post, I joined here from MSE due to the insane amount of users who made the good deals obsolete in minutes.

Agreed new blood is good but most will just view, buy silly amounts of the product then just sell it on Ebay. Like most forums I think this site should be viewable to registered users only. That usually deters me from new sites.
#6
I agree about registered users being able to view, saying that though, doesnt stop people from regging then not posting does it :-(

Its a shame as mentioned when people abuse a deal and ruin it for everyone else.

If i see a good deal on here, ill use it myself, then pass it onto my mum, but thats as far as it goes.
#7
I posted in a thread recently when the person mention he had ordered a silly amount of items.

I feel that this is taking away the real reason this site was made...

So that the average person can save a little money on the things they want or need.

Not that the greedy can find and take all the bargains leaving the rest of us with nothing...

Its such a shame that this more often the case...

Yeah I know but usually when a friend gives me a link to a site and I have to register, I usually can't be bothered giving my details to yet another site.

I remember seeing a post about someone who bought 10 Wii's just to sell on Ebay when parents with kids really want one. Those are the kind of people that ruin it for everyone.
#9
All fair points folks :) I am not always convinced that folks order quite as many as they say but if they do, there's not much anyone can do.
I think some threads mind have gotten silly, the woolies, sainsbury's and hamleys. It's good i guess that they're posted, but 30+ pages of, well i ordered this, and i ordered that, coupled with, well let's all get together and sue them, and the (guilty as charged) ensuing rows are silly.
*PERHAPS* the original post is good, then, a thread could/should be created in the misc section for all the ensuing mass debate :giggle: (go on, read the last bit out loud lol)
#10
Hehe. I was half expecting the article to be about Hamleys!

:pirate: CJ :pirate:

Nice table, sure HUKD staff could do better though...

So, if this hit print, 5000 mark to broken? :)

I've only been a member since June, but the numbers of members has skyrocketed since then. I can remember 300 odd being the most users on lineat one time! It's still a great site and way better than MSE for navigating and finding deals, but it is getting increasingly difficult to keep an eye on the number of deals posted and to sort out the few excellent ones from the large number of poorer ones.

It can't be a coincidence either that some posts in recent months have started to degenerate into the name calling and childish behaviour found on other forums which was totally missing here, even a few months ago. I didn't see a single red rep block until the £1 TV thread and now they crop up all the time. I don't know what the answer is, but, from a purely selfish viewpoint, I'm sure it isn't more members!
#13
I guess the next step is to put picture of naked Pamela Anderson on HUKD's main page? To comply with Sun reader's requirements :)
#14
Being able to filter deals via temperature, date added as well as the currently available fields would be nice I think
#15
Kommunist you mean as well as the burberry forum style option and every paragraph reiterating the former one?

You can't roll HUKD into your hand though...
#16
Been using this place for ages, only just registered though. They could have picked the offer of the TomTom One for £161 like I got it rather than £177 ;) ****ing useless Sun as usual!
#17
yes, this was in the paper version - with a lot of pictures of the cheap bargins they highlighted. well done hotukdeals!

If I'd roll HUKD into my hand, everything would be for free, but you'll need to give me er... donation to be able to access the deal. And then queue day and night to be able to get the product :) Maybe.
Oh, and a nice red banner on top won't do any harm...

Just kidding :)

I didnt notice until someone pointed it out, although i have only been skim reading, those ones always make me laugh :giggle:

That's the best bit, on paper, well screen, it looks quite innocent, but when it's read out loud, and in the right, or wrong audience, it's just soooooo bad :) Has me in stitches, sorry if that's juvenile, but makes me smile

And me, also whenever someone says boobs or willy, i cant help but almost wet myself :giggle:

Back to the message on the previous page, the number of members has sky-rocketed since I joined earlier this year.

Also I agree with those who make a 30 page rant about deals that no one honours. I'm sorry but a company to sell 40" TVs for £150 is not believable and to rant about how pissed off you are for 30 pages is just plain stupid. Companies have no right to honour it and they take the customer is always right saying too far.

WOW :|

Certainly has grown eh?
[admin]#31
Wow. Why does no one ever contact me about these things?!

I think the points raised by schizoboy and others are very valid and it's something we think a lot of behind the scenes here. How do we grow while still being effective and useful for everyone? I think the way we have the site set up now with voting and temperature helps a lot with sorting the wheat from chaff (schizo - go to the front page and you can sort by temp, status, etc. - also you can use RSS and set your custom temp level).

I think that more members is good not bad. Yes some deals will go faster than ever but at the same time more deals will be found. The more eyeballs we have searching for bargains the better off we will be. So maybe we won't snatch them all but at the same time we should be finding more opportunities.

I hope that any new members reading this are aware of one of the regulations in the HUKD forums that you have to send a box of chocs to every member when you join as a good will gesture...:-D

Better start looking for a nice BOGOF deal or ideally a buy 1 get 3000 free!!

Maybe that's the new way for Sun to increase circulation? Think how many HUKD would go and buy Sun otherwise? :-D
