I just made a new deal and it's gone straight away...wtf am I doing wrong? I got an awesome deal on some paper and it wasn't here already so I posted it here...

it was limited stock does that matter?

it was here: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/596422/bulk-boxes-boxes-of-various-paper-g

Now I am getting:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

But it was working before?

Can someone explain please? I'm so confused :(

Prob a repost of a deal so duplicates get removed
Nah wasn't a duplicate, I even searched!!! Someone posted saying "******** spam" and then like a minute later it was gone? I don't see how it was spam. I just got 1000 sheets of glossy A4 paper for £50quid!!!
Use contact us button on the bottom of the page and a MOD can look into whether its spam or not and reinstate it if it isn't
Thanks very much :)

Nick works for the company that created the website for the company that he posted the deal for, I spammed it.

Nicks website: http://www.nickizzle.com/ and http://www.nickizzle.com/about/

Company Nick works for: http://www.optixsolutions.co.uk/blog/2009/07/site-profile-ink2paper-com/

Nick, wecome to a BAN for ink2paper.com :-)

Now ****** off.
1000 sheets of glossy A4 for £50 doesn't seem like a deal to me. Am I missing something?
Oops.......nice spot
And does someone not associated with the company really care this much...?


Sorry you probably get this all the time but my intentions here are good and considering you posted straight away saying "********" and marking my deal as "spam" (what is all that about?) I am writing to you just a bit confused as to what is going on.

I'm guessing you must be a moderator of some sort as it was removed seconds after your comment?

I literally find some great deals all the time as I subscribe to like a billion newsletters and quite often think it would be useful to share. Like recently I got a code from Dell that anyone could use....so signed up here as I use the site anyway and want to give something back!

Can you perhaps explain what I did wrong please? I just posted the deal (which was f**king good!) and put the link correctly, etc but it has been removed.

Perhaps you could give me some pointers please?

I don't think I have done anything wrong?

Just so confused right now...worst welcome I've ever received to a website!!!


huh?? My company made the site ages ago and I subscribe to the newsletter but I don't work for that company!!!!

I posted because my step dad was looking to buy a load and it seems expensive everywhere? Kodak charge like £8 for 10 sheets at Boots...so surely £50 for 1000 sheets isn't bad?

Sorry if it's not a good deal to everyone? I really don't know what the problem is here...
Good detective work (and a good excuse to post this image)

Haha... Funny how someone called "Nick Watson" also works for ink2paper.com ;-)

So say the people answering the phones anyway lol
It's not a case of "caring so much" more to the point that you were rude without any explanation.

Why would someone go into so much trouble to make this link when the deal personally doesn't suit them? It was getting a lot of heat and I found it very good!

Why are you deleting articles from your website then?


BAN, BAN, BAN! :thumbsup:

Theres a secret weapon sitting on most e-commerce platforms out there, it isn’t plastered all over the site but sits rather snuggly between the cart and the checkout. I’m talking about the coupon code box…also known as voucher codes, promotion codes, discount codes – I think I’ve seen many more variations too!
Don’t be quick to dismiss it as something you just give to your friends, employees and family – it can actually prove to be a very powerful tool.
Let’s put our hands up – how many of us looking for a bargain, search around for a coupon code on discount sites when they see the box? The answer “yes” will be a frequent occurance – maybe even more than you think.
Recent research conducted by Helen Legatt on behalf of Coupon Crazy has shown that 94% of adults have used a coupon code to make an online purchase. As soon as I see the box, I immediately check Hot UK Deals to see if I can get my purchase cheaper!
So I’ve shown how it can be of massive benefit to you as a person when making a purchase, but what about your business?
Whilst I still see sales as an effective tool and something you can target more to specific products, the coupon code also has a lot of potential – let me explain why.
Your customers do the publicity for you!

It’s hard to believe that promoting your store can be this easy, but it is! If you have a good base of users already, it is likely that some of them are using discount sites already and will post your codes to these sites for your behalf – otherwise you may have to do it yourself. Send out a newsletter to your existing customers saying something along the lines of “thank you for shopping with us, here’s 20% off your next order – the code is XXX-XXXX-XXX” – if you don’t see your code(s) appearing on discount sites shortly after (a week or 2), just add them yourself.
Even if your products are more expensive than your competitors, as customers think they are getting such a good deal straight away – they would be more inclined to make the purchase without checking price comparison sites.
Set an expiry date

Shoppers will always be more inclined to buy something when the pressures on. Set an expiry date for a month or two later – you can always run another promotion shortly after.
The research mentioned earlier also shows that a staggering 95% of coupon codes are found to be expired when entered, however very surprisingly, 57% of these shoppers still go ahead with the purchase…the perfect crime?! Remember though, if you are promoting a coupon code to expire on a certain date – don’t expire it sooner, or you could end up with many unhappy shoppers and bad reputation.
See an increase in returning customers

Customers feel more valued when you give them an offer that appears tailored to them – in addition to a newsletter, run special promotions for users on social media streams like twitter and facebook.
Theres no doubt in my mind that this method of shopping has become more popular and we’ll see many more companies adopting this technique in preference over standard sales – [COLOR=#008000]everyone does sales now, they are meaningless – get ahead of the game[/COLOR]
Locked this thread so it can now vanish into the annals (note two "n"s) of HUKD history as there's been enough SP for one day
Thankyou for some sterling detective work PC Rip

And just for info: -
We request that businesses and anyone involved or [COLOR="Red"]connected to them in any way[/COLOR], including marketing agents for example, submit their specific deals using the 'Contact Us

And yes; working for the company that designed the website that the deal was posted for is without any doubt "connected to them in any way" and is self promotion.
