    Broken links to HUKD deal alerts?

    Hi All,
    When I click on a link sent to me via my deal alert settings It displays page not found on the site:
    Like this one.

    Dell Inspiron 6400 (£400 Cheaper than Dell)

    hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…an/

    You are receiving this email because of your Deal Alert settings on HUKD. To change your settings please visit hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…rts

    or this one:

    Duracell 9V Alkaline Batteries - £1.29 each inc. FREE UK delivery!

    hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…29/

    Then I have searched this site directly with keywords for the deal but no luck
    (It does not happen with every link BTW):-(

    Could anyone help on this

    They have been removed from the forum by the mods, and you cannot access them now.

    Deal alerts aren't the best, the RSS feed is much handier and up to date, I'd recommend changing over to that.

    Yeah, with the deal alerts if a mod needs to change the title of a thread it breaks the link. RSS doesn't have this problem.

    Sorry Ducky, admin fixed that problem with the thread titles. It just doesn't work if a deal has been removed altogether.

    These were removed and the posters alerted as to why. As Emma mentions above, the RSS feed is best for keeping track of updates with deals.

    I see..
    So can I assume they were not true deals in the spirit of this forum?
    and were private sales and violated the rules?

    Yes they are either spam, referrals, self-promo or duplicates.
