    I created a thread yesterday regarding a deal thread that was pulled (wont mention it as theres obviously something wrong with it). I wanted to know why it was pulled as I had bought from the site.

    Now, in addition to the original deal, my misc thread has been pulled, again without any form of explanation....so can a mod tell me why please....doesnt take much to at least explain it to the creator of the thread!!!!!

    say what it is and we'll look.

    Hotukdeals = deal anarchy from the masses...
    lol as long as it satisfies stringent rules and doesnt upset the mods.
    Maybe its time to change the logo.

    guess I dont...but it would be helpful to set up an automessage to say whats happened to the many dissappearing threads....dont you think?

    li'tiger - Benji is not a mod but he is a really helpful member.

    To make a query of a mod you need to use the 'Feedback' thread or Contact Us; misc is not the place.

    thought he wasnt lol

    whenever I do that I dont get replies.....so I start a thread and report myself....always seems to do the job and if they didnt want us to do this then perhaps they should make their 'official' contact methods work better

    It was regarding a rose deal, some silly amount of roses for £1.60, site looked a bit 'interesting' :whistling: but I bought thinking paypal covers me???? Just annoying that HUKD members bought something seen on HUKD, and while I accept offers arent checked before they are published, surely HUKD should explain why its an unsuitable deal to all of us that may have 'bought' something :roll:

    hope youre well chesso

    My guess is they were member spammed.

    I had a duplicate deal post pulled by a mod once and I received a message from them saying it was removed as it was a dupe. Seemed like a standard message they sent.

    if a mod spammed it then yes you usually get a pm, but as most dupes are member spammed most of the time you wont get a pm, as the op of the deal liltiger is referring to probably got a pm

    We can't set up an automessage for every thread which is spammed

    The original deal wasn't actually valid, we received an email from the company in question to say the code had been placed "maliciously" on the internet.
    The site has self promoted frequently at the end of last year so aswell as the above, we also wanted to make sure nothing dodgy was going on.

    Agee with the OP point though. It's not too much to ask.... or is it?

    inb4 "use the contact button", which as everyone already knows is pretty much a waste of time.




    EDIT: Obviously not. Well done to the mods for replying.

    Haha! Yes, I'm well thanks - had a nice holiday in Madeira - hope you managed to get to Venice. :-D

    Re official contact methods - I think it rather depends on whether you fit into the category of 'We can do something about this - no probs' or 'Not very interesting - bin it'!! as to whether you get some 'action'. I've no idea of course, no being a mod myself. :roll:

    TBH I think that this is the sort of question that does usually get answered if you post in Feedback. Dodgy site by your description, but worth a punt for £1.60 ( and £20 delivery -:w00t: joke).

    edit - and there's lovely JB in here - well done that mod.

    I thought it would have been easy to set up an automessage for that but hey...im not a computery person

    thanks for the reply JB....but how come the code worked? I ordered flowers to be delivered tomorrow, and have not YET recieved an email to the contrary.

    Anyways, thanks, I always jump to the conclusion that ive given my details to the worst website imaginable :whistling:

    Why not? I appreciate the auto response wont give the reason, but it will at least alert the OP their thread has gone.

    Now if you just listened to the requests for a "reason for spamming" to be a requirement (same goes for expire), then the auto reply could even say why and the OP would see if its valid or not. If they see its a duplicate, they'll probably search and see the duplicate. If its a dodgy reason, they can respond and you can get that whipping stick out.

    My next door neighbour (A retired policeman) made a total mess up. First in Blue, then when given a new form, decided to overwrite the old in black instead of the new form. Sorted the photo's (with a magnolia background instead of white). The next attempt, I spelt out "dont cross the border with your signature" and you can guess what he did on the next form!

    I ended up asking the neighbour on the other side, who's a head teacher. Very methodical approach and sorted within 10 minutes! What a difference!

    Sent yesterday recorded and has been signed for in Peterborough this morning. Fingers crossed everything else is ok!

    Retired people are retired for a good reason ( mainly!) I have to say I have always found filling in passport forms etc quite stressful - used to do quite a few for kids at school.
    All looking promising then.

    That's not what lil tiger was asking for She wasn't the OP, she just bought the deal.
    If we remove a thread then we drop a PM to let the poster know. If members spam a thread, it's often done incorrectly and ends up being reinstated, so an automessage wouldn't be appropriate in that case.

    You dont always "drop a PM", but that wasn't the point I was making.

    You say if it gets spammed incorrectly, it gets reinstated. I dont think thats the case (at least not always!). The suggestion I was making would alert users when it happened. If there was an issue, they could let you know. If there wasn't, they wouoldnt need to. It actually assists with your tasks rather than creates work
