Fed up with not being able to find anything, keep track of anything or use the site easily. I've given it a go but it really is totally naff (even in text only view).

I've not yet read why it was changed, its certainly not to make the users experience more pleasant.

I have to agree, its hard work
#2
It is a rather unpleasant experience now, i used to love the site.:x
banned#3
Its true.

After a few days, the site has become more usable for me.... but its definately not any fun now.
#4
I can't find anything. Does anyone know of any other sites or maybe we could have a vote on whether we like this or the old better and get admin to do something about it. :?
#5
How come I can use the site no problems when you can't???

Click custom then customised browsing at the bottom and choose how you want it to look. It's not that difficult! Using that and the firefox update Jaybird has put on and the site is far better than it used to be. Even without the firefox update I can't see why people say they can't find stuff??? It's all there as before, just instead of having to go in and out of each forum you can select them from the top bar, or you can choose which ones to look at in custom? What's wrong with that???
#6
What is everyone trying to find that they can't? I can find what I want no problems!
#7
In the style of michael palin from the monty python 'right room for an arguement' skit....

"If its unusable, how did you manage to post...Ah HA!!!"

Before if i was in the deals forum i could just refresh the page and the latest poster (on any of the threads ) was at the top. Now even when i customise i cannot do that.
#9
Totally agree - the dust has settled on the change now, and whilst I am able to just about get the info I need, it is so slow and time consuming, that I am thinking of moving elsewhere. Posting a deal is now a chore, links don't always work, pages load slowly or not at all, heat and rep functions seem to be up the creek, and I can't search for posts/threads easily - I can't even keep track of my own posts now. It is a shame, because this time last week, HUKD was about the most useful and accessible website that I accessed daily. End of moan........

Have to agree, I'm all for change but this is like the halfcost site now!! (god help us)

Thats still the same now just select the discussed tab at the top.

As for all this white on the site it is admin's way of saving the world as you now have to turn the brightness down which save electricity thus saves the world!

At the moment, the search works on entire words instead of partial matches. Has it always been like this?

This is EXACTLY my point!!!

People come on here and complain about it when they don't even have a clue what they're talking about. Go and look at customise properly and follow the advice given above and you'll find that other than a few bugs (which are being fixed) and a slighly different layout (which is better than before) nothing has changed!!!

I've listened to people whinge all week and I'm sick of it. Some members have been kind enough to post guides enabling you to find out how to do these things. It's not difficult to find them, I and loads of others found them and they have made the site much better, the main reason why people can't find their way round anymore is 1) because they don't look and 2) because everyday people keep on starting pointless threads having a go at the site when actually it's alot better.

Why the hell people can't just complain in one thread and let the rest of the site get on as usual I don't know.

You seem to be viewing this thread lots yourself. Have you posted in every "whinging" thread. Some people need help in customising and finding their way around the site. Some people don't have time to sit on it "all week". Some poeple are more accustomed to this change and others like i say need help. The only help that you give is negative making people feel stupid for asking. We that have complained are so sorry that you are sick of the whinging that you have "listened " to. Maybe if you didn't look at the threads that were moaning you wouldn't HAVE to listen. MERRY CHRISTMAS :whistling:

And to add, my parents used this site to find vouchers and deals, they have said to me they dont know what to do anymore. They are inexperienced internet users that dont even know what a forum is. To say that its their fault "because they dont look" is very harsh indeed.
banned#24
Hey benjimoron calm down, people are frustrated with the site the same as you are frustrated with them members, i agree these threads dont help, but nor do your type of comments, although i have done the same on both parts. Not everyone is forum wise and even those that are, are still struggling with things. For me the speed is slow enough to drive even the sane nuts never mind the insane, like myself:oops:

I know exactly how to use this site and can find whatever i need, well when there aint a bug ballsing it up, but i dont like it, its unfriendly and thats why alot of members, liked this site due to its friendly look, you can do whatever you like to customise it but it wont have the same feel to it, as im sure those who are struggling will agree

Why oh why??? please change back to old version. I am not enjoying finding things it takes longer to find and longer to read.
#27
It's a total mess and very, very tricky to read. It's like when they dress up a ****** sci-fi film with loads of computer fx to make it appear exciting when it's not (exclusion Starship Troopers).
#28
Look on the bright side, think of all the money you are not spending :)

And if you don't like the new site and you do find something do not click the "GO TO Deal" button, just go directly to the company find the item and buy it..

If they get less referals with the new site it will have more of an effect in getting it changed than all of us moaning about it.

lol!!!

Am feeling a bit better now, just shouted at someone down the phone for 5 minutes! Stupid Halifax!

I don't mean to be harsh and I understand that there are some members that are having problems but the guides have been posted, read them, understand them and there's no problems. Only problem for me is the amount of threads clogging up the place complaining. No need, absolutely no need. Complain in one thread and the site will be alot easier to navigate.

Sorry, I don't follow the logic on that one. How would getting less referrals make them change the site?

Come on Shengis, less referrals = less money = gotta change to get more money = maybe change back.

I use to be a great fan of this site but it's back to MSE for me.. Not used MSE for a while because I found this site to be a whole lot better but over the last few days I have been looking on MSE before I come on here to get frustrated.. I've tried but I just don't get on with HUKD at the moment.. I tried to look for a discount code earlier and I gave up in the end. Where has the nice list that was in alphabetical order gone?... I all for change to as long as it's for the better and in my honest opinion this is not..? Was the change sponsored by Martin Lewis??

It's not hard to do, I did it the other day when I bought the bread maker.

Just a few clicks more is all it took.

I don't come here now to keep an eye on deals I have started using RSS feeds.

But if you do like the new site please click the "Go To Deal" Button and register your reward.
