    to access the site.



    If baselining the fee against current use?...then no. I would on the other hand be open to paying a small fee if some rules were changed. But thats a personal preference.

    Many people access the site who are not registered, if they buy a deal via the deals section then theres already that scope for HUKD making an affiliates fee from the purchase and getting income via that route. So if you closed off the who site, HUKD would have to weigh up the potential loss from affiliate sales against fee paying users. Also, if you are paying for a service then you will expect a specific level of service from the site, mods, admin etc

    I'd be open to pondering paying a few quid per year on the basis of some rationalisation of rules etc.

    No afraid not - couldn't warrent it to be honest x

    I wouldn't £1 year yes, £10 no....

    No chance

    i would much prefer it if you had to login to see the forum

    you only have to look the amount of people online.

    the thing is if people didn't pay the fee there would be no deals on here so really can't see it happening :whistling:

    Only the brave or foolish contribute:w00t:

    we (members) are already paying to use HUKD !!! ...
    we're the ones who work hard finding the deal and posted it here and HUKD collect the affiliatiion fees!!

    they have to pay the server etc but i bet it is still profitable :-)

    +1 .. Agreed .. Why should people get in on the deals without registering with the site?

    no hukds already make money on click throughs

    Pay for that to post the best deals? No thank you :lol:

    The question is then, what if HUKD offered you a %-age of cashback based on the commission that it got itself from posting in the deals section......:thumbsup:

    The more deals you posted, the more scope for making money for both yourself and HUKD....;-)

    Definitely NOT, Don't give them idea's lol

    Nope! :-D

    A huge amount of time, resources and effort has gone into making the site as successful as it is. In an ideal scenario it would be awesome if we had links in place for every single merchant on here- in reality that's not the case, yes there are affiliate links in place for some merchants but you'd be surprised at the huge amount of merchants who we don't have links in place for.

    The moderators here also work really hard at sourcing deals and put a lot into making this site work.

    We do have a great member base here and some members post up consistantly awesome deals, that's what makes this site a huge as it is- indeed if the site wanted to cash in, we could rock some ads and banners- but then it wouldn't be the same, would it?

    That's not what we're about, Hotukdeals.com is successful because of the deals and because of the community

    Well the website would not make as much money from the affiliate links. They need the unregistered members to still look and buy items. The number of guests is always a lot higher than members. They need to make money or else there might not be a HUKD

    But you must make quite a bit. If there is a truly awesome deal and you do have an affiliate link for then you would make a lot.

    no way. I'd just start my own free site which is the same as HUKD and take all of the users.

    I do not deny your comment, but it also does not invalidate my points above.
    Otherwise, the site wouldnt live for so long.

    what im trying to say is the reason why i dont think you guys would charge us to use HUKD... or would you? :thinking:

    No i would not pay

    Remember the saying do not bite the hand that feeds.

    Wouldn't pay and still happy to contribute to a great site.

    Get peeved when guests are able to get certain deals.

    The option to lock a thread down to members only would be fantastic :thumbsup:

    HUKD wont lock deal threads...
    cos it would mean much less clicks on deal links which matters more than the huge number of members:)
    in fact more members = larger database = larger server = more costs

    perhaps just the Freebie links then or those that HUKD don't profit on :?

    me for one, I browsed the site frequently for many months before signing up.....

    I dont know now if signing up was a good thing or a bad thing tho...lol :-D

    I looked on this site for a couple of years on and off before signing up.

    I browsed for a few weeks but then wanted to contribute

    Charging will definately mean numbers will drop hence number of deals will go too....

    as it is most deals here come from MSE....

    I wouldn't pay because I rarely use the deals section.

    Exactly- I also browsed for a while before signing up, how many of us would have signed up if we couldn't see the deals in the first place?

    Silly question really, there is no way HUKD are going to charge anyone to use the site.;-)
