Look at post 5 on the thread below.

A lot of deals posted i have no interest in,but it's a bit much accusing others of wasting your time.

i agree with post 5.

You have completely missed the point.

The op of that thread posted all of the deals in one post. The other person commented saying it was a waste of time when people post those same individual items on sale.

What's wrong with that?

One of the things I occasionally like to do with HUKD is to do a quick search on it for the offers available instore at a shop I've wandered into, be it Asda, B&Q, or whatever. Only, I usually give up, because although the info is available on this site, it's available in such a sparse format that it's too cumbersome to be worth the time and effort. By listing all the deals available in a shop in one page, it makes things super-convenient, and actually viable.

I'd prefer if people did batch posts of instore deals all the time.

agree with others on this thread, much better in my view to list them in one post than all individually

I agree posting them in one thread is ideal,but i wouldn't go on to then accuse people of wasting my time.

I think you have missed the point,if people are good enough to post deals they shouldn't be accused of wasting people's time.

So then OP,

Say I wanted to sell 100 DVD's in the FS/FT section of the site.

I assume you would rather me post them all seperately, each with their own individual thread rather than all in one thread, updating it as they were sold?!

Not exactly fair on other people selling stuff and a bit of a waste of time don't you think?

Yes,Agoraphobia is very challenging.

I agree with everyone, but blame everyone for making me waste my time telling you all.

OP is saying, it is good when some deals are all grouped together in one thread, but it doesn't mean individual deals (some times there wouldn't be anything to group them with too) cannot be called waste of time.

It's what they're doing by spamming the site with individual deals, though.

Individual deals are ideal when you're talking about items that you would buy in a single transaction, batch deals are ideal when you're talking about deals you'd buy in a batch transaction. Like, a laptop you'd buy in one transaction, your groceries you'd buy in a batch transaction. What's the point in listing parts of a batch singulary? It's just inefficient, and a waste of people's time.

It's the accusation in post 5 that regulars posting deals are wasting people's time,that's my point.
Posters like that are usually the ones who do diddly squat for the site,post no deals and don't help anyone.

It's not the list that deb8z has a problem with, it's the response in the other thread that moans about people who don't do it that way. As she says if people can be bothered to post deals at all then fair play to them what ever form they come in.

The people moaning about the deal layout. are usually the ones that don't post deals at all.

I think its a waste of our time when someone leaves 'your text here' when posting a link so you have to click on it to see what it is

maybe you should get out more...

I don't care how people post deals.

I just like them posting them so I can spend money I haven't got

It is a waste of time though, not going to go to a supermarket because I can see 50p off one item but if I can see 40 deals where I can benefit in one shop then it is worth posting.

The individual posts will never make the hottest 5 of the day or whatever so nobody wants to be searching the site looking for all Sainsburys deals when it would be easier for the OP to spend 5 extra mins and save everyone else 4 hours of searching (especially with how helpful the HUKD search function is oO )

Now hop along. This will be my last post aimed at your idiocy as I've run out of leg puns.

TBH Debz, I think that, for instance 12 deals from Play on the top two new pages is a bit of a waste of time and good deals get buried in the morass.

It didn't used to be like that, somehow. I cannot remember how it changed but there didn't used to be a zillion posts for every reduction in e.g Lidl. There did used to be much more of 'These are the sales that are on.' 'Have a look in the DVD section of Play' etc etc. I think there was a change to having to sort of having to list a specific deal some while back. I do get fed up with trawling through the great long lists of people's picks (which don't correspond with mine). One member posted 27 Bargain Crazy deals in just a few hours the other day. I think that did waste my time. I recall one time when there were about 10 Zavvi posts on the front page and none of them was cheaper than anywhere else BUT a voucher - which was in the vouchers section - brought the price down.

I don't know that it was an attacking 'waste of time' accusation against posters , more an observation that time is being wasted.

Good on all posters for posting but really it has spiralled out of control. Good for you for sticking up for posters as well, even if I do disagree with you. *smile*
