Q: can you do everything for me as I’m too lazy to do it myself?
A: sure although you might get a few sarcastic comments along the way. Think of these as character building and educational.
Q: Why was the "Deal Request" forum dropped for the "Misc" forum to then be split into "Discussions" & "Ask" for these then to be re-grouped with "Competitions" at the same time "Feedback" was sub-divided into dedicated "Official Announcements" while new sub-forums "Buying From Abroad", "Megathread", "Retailer Offers and Issues", "Introduce Yourself", & "Money Saving Tips and Tricks" were added & for the whole collection then to be under the banner of "Discussions"?

Follow-up question...

Q: Why doesn't anybody know where to post threads now, especially the site staff that seem to post announcements in "Misc", & others than make their own "Official Announcements" threads, as well as some (but not all) "Misc" threads raising a question being moved to the "Ask" sub-forum?

Bonus question...

Q: Why is the link to the "Feedback" section at the bottom of the page instead of at the top with all the other sub-forums?

A: Nobody knows / Reasons / It depends on who you ask & what day of the week it is.


PS. Bully's star prize...

Q: Why did it take me almost 40 minutes today to advise the "hotukdeals_team" Messaging alias on what the site's "FAQ" page categorically states about editing the price of a "Deal" once it has received voting?

It looked like I was communicating with at least three people in rapid succession & each had different views on whether the thread should be 'expired' (as I had indicated; with the original price reinstated), or the changed price was valid, &/or the thread should be allowed to continue.

Within seconds of each other I received three responses all with contradictory explanations of what was going to happen... and still I had to quote the "FAQ" text to demonstrate (at least) one of them misunderstood it!

A: Rules & guidelines are applied subjectively.

I need XXX

Good for you. As you haven’t worded it as a question I will assume you’re merely making a statement so no need for me to tell you the best place to buy XXX

I think I’ve seen similar posts before lol
we ought *to* have a "Qunts Question of the week" that we vote on for worst posed question in the discussions thread.

Its all in the pronounciation obviously

*As missed in post by myself, as pointed out in the usual clinical manner of the entity known as "fanpages" ..is he also the fellow in the news who has given up the "war" on the misuse of the apostrophe perchance?

Going by your phrasing of "we ought have" the delivery of the sentence is also important.
As i've mentioned before Fanpages, problems with eye & brain co-ordination due to injury ..a new keyboard with better keystroke detection may help also as i'm fairly light fingered on there with my worst side.

Any decent mini keyboard deals to peruse today, I wonder?
