I understand that they (site owners/mods) cannot think of a way to seperate 'useful' members from the not so useful.....therefore they have given every member (over 5 posts) apparent equal chance of winning the vouchers.....

....the only thing I dont get is that if it was to reward the members who made the site what it is...then why not just allowe the members who were here before the competition was even mentioned to play....i.e stop the brand new members that are blatently signing up for the competition and no other reason?????

well then there would just be 100's of pointless 'deals' but if they only let people play that were members before then it would completely suit the purpose of rewarding people


as it stands all this comp is doing is boosting the completely useless members that HUKD has and then rewarding these members with the same chance of everyone else...lowering all 'proper' members probability of winning!

cos its a way to attract new members
#7
Could someone tell me where my post went that i put on before
#8
I only asked how many times you had to post so you can have a go on the scratchcard
#9
Understand where you're coming from with that point of view OP.

Couple of things.

Its a competition, and most, if not all comps have T&Cs. Regardless of those T&Cs (and we can and often do criticise), we should respect and accept that Admin and the mods have given up their time to allow us the chance to get something for nothing. If we win then YAY!, if dont, then it was at least fun playing and discussing on the forums.

I suspect that they are opening the comp to those with 5 posts or more as it is a way of enticing new users to try the site. Even if they sign up to play the comp, they have to have a minimum number of posts, which means they must use the site.

Many people, including myself signed up only to use a section of the site as a whole, but since doing so, now use more of the site and appreciate what it has to offer.

same question different thread

why why why???

For asking a question thats a nice welcome to HUKD

I don't mind everyone having an equal chance.... be they a member for a day or for the whole 5 years.

Any birthday competition that can be thought up will always have ways that people think of to get around the rules.

I did enjoy last yrs birthday matches more than this comp though... but maybe it's done somethings hukd might have wanted...

a) lots of new members, some of whom may stay...
b) encouraged the "lurkers" to join up, "name" up and post.

Obviously more members = more deals so hopefully we'll all benefit in the long run...

yeah i get that its a nice thing to do........but they should admit that its purely to get more members...it isnt to reward the people who have made the site what it is at all....if it was then the suggestion I have put here should have been used

perhaps so COM...but i doubt very much that after the comp is over many of them will stay and actually share deals as we all do.....regardless...im not dumb, and I know this thread isnt going to change anything....I just wanted a rant about how I dont appreciate been lied to by the organisers and how blatantly they are favouring new members who sign up for the comp over the established members.....

Very bitter and thank you Clarity. If i do find any deals i will sure try to post them.

Finally, someone i agree with RE the competition, the site doesn't 'owe' you anything :)

For asking a question thats a nice welcome to HUKD


you ask the right questions you get the right responses.....if you werent just here to use the site to enter the competition and made it so clear thats the reason....perhaps you would have got a better reception

But babe you're appreciated by us...

your friends :)

And HUKD isnt a place where we're.. to be thanked for being here... it's just nice for us all to hang out and chat and we can use it to save money, to find vouchers and deals and whatever...

I dont feel the need to be thanked for being here.

Doesn't matter to me if the newbie's stay or if they go, but if they're genuine people.. ( and yes I know i'm naive as f ) then they deserve the same warmth and compassion as we all do :) xx

You know i love ya babes :) xxx

nope I know it doesnt.....but my point is...if they made the true agenda clear then there wouldnt have been any of this 'moaning'

they should have said.....in order to reward all members and attract new members to the site.....:whistling:
and not tried to make out it was to reward existing members

Actually COM thats very true. When I first started posting on misc, I didnt know anyone, but now have made some lovely and some VERY funny online friends! I have had tears running down my face with laughter on some of the threads - and thats brilliant entertainment. Plus I have been given some amazing advice when its been much needed...................and also been cheered up when been down in the dumps

The site is great!

It sure was lol. Try and ask proper questions next time

#34
ive seen competitions on sites i dont use, ive entered them :roll:
#35
I know no worries
#36
but why shouldnt they just join up to use the competition

its not all about giveaways do you really think hukd like giving something away for nothing

how many people on here do the itv comps but never wach the show?
and all the other comps that are on the other websites
do u visit them religously?

this is a marketing tool and hukd business plan is to create more users hence more clicks hence more profit

im sure that hukd run this competiton legitimately and all above board

all the winners have probably been pulled randomly at times
this site does not owe anybody anything

I can see where the "reward all members" came from... it hasn't done that as not everyone gets a "prize" and some will miss out. But I think the intimation was to have FUN and a lighthearted celebration of 5 yrs of deals.

Perhaps by strict definition we should all have paypal gifted Admin the £2.50, it's HUKD's birthday after all? :whistling:

Imagine if they charged us a yearly fee like Quidco etc? 200,000 members was it? times £2.50??
#38
what about us who submit the deals and make hukd what it is..
#39
Another question please dont bite my head off but how do you put someone elses comments with yours
#40
stemaca74
It sure was lol. Try and ask proper questions next time


lol..In Misc? are you serious dude?.....to ask a proper question implies a certain level of intelligence, a rational, pragmatic and realistic approach to things....

throw all of that out of the window dude and its welcome to hell.....once you win your £2.50 Zavvi voucher and have been cast into the lake of fire (aka Misc)....then you're now past the initation and its time to settle into the Asylum....

Anyhoo...welcome and hope you enjoy your time here :-D
