    As this is a family content site, would you prefer to have an adults only section to prevent your children from viewing controversial Bargains/Comments?

    A place where you can be a bit less restrained in what you say, within reason?

    VOTE YES

    Or do you feel that 'That type of content' should be kept away from HDUK altogether?

    VOTE NO


    Thanks.

    I would like to see an adult only bit.There are many adult bargains out there too ya know! :thumbsup:

    Reading the Karma Sutra playing cards thread I think it makes sense to have an adult section - I don't have any kids, but I'm all for sheilding them from portion of certain things.

    Voted YES.

    sensible idea :thumbsup:

    I have 2 Children and they aren't interested in HUKD. Why would a child want to 'browse' HUKD? Can I look for a new Barbie or Action Man please Mum on HUKD. :giggle: :giggle:

    A fair few deals could be bought for or by kids.. Alot of computer games/consoles etc.

    Just looking at p1 of Hot Deals..ps2, wii, xbox games,mpeg4 player, xbox 360 games, warcraft all spring to mind. Besides we arent just considering small children.. what about 16/17 year olds? not good to expose them to adult paraphenalia but they might well use the site.

    trying not to be controversial

    a 16/17 year old withnet access will have looked at porn!


    under that age will not have a credit card to order deals -


    now deals on porn...........i think they should stay out

    Just because they may have doesnt mean that it should be condoned..
    Alot of them will have access to debit cards to use for purchases.
    There's something seriously wrong when any given child could see adult material.. even if not browsing the site if a window is left open or whatever.

    So how are kids to be kept out of the adults only section? One option is that they have to check a box to say they're over 18 - I'm guessing they'd figure out how to crack that. ;-) Another option is to request a credit card which is going to put off a lot of bona fide adults. :-(

    It's not an unreasonable idea but I'm sure that there must be other websites out there providing such a service that "adult" consumers already know about.

    These things happen. Don't blow this one incident out of all proportion.
    This is the first time it's happened on this scale. on here since I've joined.

    It's happened, the offensive posts have gone, Admin has apologised, end off,
    NO need to keep rehashing it.
    LET IT DROP.:x

    Hello Jack...

    Banned

    What time of the night did this happen?

    What children should be awake at that time, especially browsing the internet?

    I am sure if it had of happened during the day it would have been gone within minutes, if not seconds!?

    It was a 'tongue in cheek' comment. :whistling: :whistling:
    I'm not bothered in the slightest what hot deals are posted.

    If your kids are up at 4am on the internet then I'd suggest you keep better track of your childrens internet activity and stop asking random web hosts to do it for you.

    no, restrict your kids if you need too!

    Im happy the way things are.

    don't really feel hotdeals needs a adult section .i oversee everything my 2 do on the computer and they have there own sites in thier own favorites .If they wish to google something etc they always have to ask .but my comp is downstairs so it is easy to check on them .

    I think a section for adult deals would be a sensible idea, does no harm only good!

    Can I just point out, I don't think the OP was referring to the incident with indecent images this morning. They are refering to adult DEALS. Adult naughties, little games, toys, etc. Which, in all honesty, hardly ever appear. We've had a few for valentine's day. That's it.

    And yes, children could have access to this site. And there may be *some* things appealing to them. But I doubt many teenagers would have the sense to come here to find the cheapest price on a Wii game or something. Any I know would either go into town and buy the first they see at Game or hit Amazon or Play.com... I don't think it's a great issue to be honest. It just requires some common sense with users. Most rude words are blocked by our content filter anyway.

    totally agree there is hardly ever anything of that nature on here just the exception of some saucy valentines gifts plus if you start a adult section people would start posting allsorts .

    Well, yeah...that's why they are suggesting a forum for stuff like that...most people (for example, me!) don't post 'adult' deals because we know this is a family forum and it wouldn't be apropriate.

    the items in mind here can probably seen on sale at your local card shop around valentines day,such as the dice and even handcuff's ect, i think as long as the convo in the threads are kept 'clean' in sure no corruption will be done!!!! and no one is likely to post a deal selling a month of television x with a 50% voucher! so i think its uneccessary work for Admin

    If you have an adult section it's just going to get filled with sex toys. As said already, the only thing we could to is have a checkbox "are you over 18?". Kids would still be able to get in.

    It's just not necessary. These things are all available at places such as Ann Summers. Just get on Google if that's not good enough.

    Well thats pretty conclusive then. 2/3 say NO where 1/3 say YES to a separate section.

    Personally, I'm pleased with this result. Perhaps some things do 'Stray' a little but overall, we have a good site here and I could see the 'Adult' bit degenerating into rank seediness.

    Thank you to all those that troubled to cast a vote.
