    How often should a Flamedeer be popping up?

    I have had a window open all day, and seen a grand total of 3; one of which I missed due to being in the little boys room.
    Only seeing 3-4 per day, even with the window kept open and active, how on earth did someone manage to win something the first day??

    I've not looked at this year's code but last year it was a maximum of 1 per hour. the bit of .js does some checks with a server to determine if you get one and by looks of code I could see was completely random. it also had some added security checks to prevent people running a script to just F5 a page every 5seconds

    I think it's just random! pure luck! I've got 4 over the last 2 days just browsing!

    they cheat and use scripts. its been common place here for some time and one of the biggest gripes about this competition. There is also an hint of favoritism where the devs reward the 'popular' people on hukd.

    Its all corrupt.

    It's just a bit of fun and it's usually randoms who win the prizes, it's rarely I see regular members win big on flamedeer.

    I think you'e supposed to open different links and spend over 30 seconds on one page, but I don't know really. I've got five in two days just browsing.

    really. why I am still waiting for any win then X).. not even a coffee coupon since I have been here.

    Try posting some hot deals.....

    I have 5 but 2 of them are the same Candled Flamedeer & 2 are the same Gingerbread Flamedeer. I have spent most of the day on here so I imagine to win anything you'd need to spend your life stuck on HUKD

    I've posted a couple, one went over 200C, but I am not usually in here all day posting stuff like some; it does make you wonder how many of these dozens of deal posts per day people are doing it as a paid job.......

    its just there are too many people. Over 60,000 for the twitter flamedeer party. So the
    chances of winning are remote. I'll be happy with any win.. but I have my fun trading and helping people
    out (once I finish my collection).

    Anyone want to have an Abominable in exchange for a Candled??

    Strange, the exchange shows me as having one flamedeer more than the collection page

    I dont know, I am the person who posted the question, and I am the only person who hasnt got a flamedeer while reading the page, even the one I got a while back popped up on the HUKD main page AFTER I closed this page.

    I agree with sickly sweet . It's just a bit of fun . More conspiracy theories here than death of JFK . If you win its something for nothing , if you don't win you've lost nothing .

    Got one reading this post too! Logged in about 30 seconds ago so result.

    OK, as soon as my daughter is asleep, I am going to go play Lord of the Rings, and hope I get my Candled Flamedeer tomorrow.

    Currently lulling her to sleep with the Disney Moana sound track. Strange what types of music will put her to sleep!!

    Is anyone finding problems with the android app since the flame deer challenge started?

    I've had a bag of carrots here all day, might as well eat them myself if the Flamedeers don't want them!

    It's totally random and sometime it takes a moment to show up. This isn't TCB's birdies as I assumed would be like.

    yawn, time for bed. will continue the search tomorrow.

    Just as I figured out they were turning up (for me) at 23 minutes past the hour, one turned up at 5 past and buggered up my theory.

    Daughter dosed up on meds and put to bed hours ago, but I stayed up to make sure the meds worked; last night they gave out at 1am and she was wake, hacking her lungs out, poor mite.

    This is the problem with pre-birth steroid injections, when the child is going to be taken out early, life long issues with their lungs.
