Thank you for your support - it is appreciated, but as I alluded to in earlier comments, it is really the misuse of the forum that frustrates me, people voting cold because of prejudice against the product disregarding that there are people liking the product who would otherwise benefit. I seek no personal glory from posting, it annoys me to think that there are other peoples' posts that may interest me that I miss because of this behaviour. However what can be done about it I just don't know.
I total agree and see your frustrations when posting certain deals and when they go cold. When I find a good deal I will always check the big guys first (Amazon, eBay, Tesco etc) and the check HUKD and previous posts on the product to see it’s price history. I have found the image you post for the deal also influences peoples votes. On yours for example, the image shows one box of 110 tables, I would of put a picture of 2 boxes of 110. And in the title I would of put somewhere “(Total 220 Tablets)”. Try not to post deal to late night or early hours, it will just get missed and not have much traffic, aim for weekends (late morning to afternoon are good times to post). Don’t let this blip stop you from posting, you’re doing a great job. It’s all about timing and presentation of your post! (y)
Don’t let it put you off posting please, but I personally think the way the voting works on here is for a mixture of reasons and works well. It appears that on this occasion the people have spoken and that’s the way it goes sometimes. Sometimes even real bargains go cold for no reason but thats the way it goes. My theory is that if I post a deal and it helps one person then it’s worth posting. If you bear that in mind when you post, you’ll always be happy with your posts. People vote for a number of reasons, and I’d say most likely is that this is downvoted due to better products being available cheaper (also/Lidl) which seems valid and hopefully prevents someone buying a poor product.
I agree with you to a point, but the efficacy of a cleaning product is subjective and I would say that voting cold based on opinion not price is to be undermining the spirit of the forum. It doesn't mean you can't comment, as you say.
It’s good you posted it, and please keep on posting. I think its great that people are commenting on the efficiency of the product, and it’s a fair number of people who are all agreeing with them being a poor quality product, which should help people decide whether this product is right for them. I’d rather my post be voted cold if it’s a poor product than it go hot and have people disappointed that the product was terrible. There is such a thing as false economy and if the general consensus of the penny pinchers of HUKD are saying this is false economy then it’s advice I want to heed.
