There used to be a dedicated page, but it has been removed.

You do find odd references to Pepper.com, though.

Has the measurement of a deal always been in degrees?
Edited by: "deleted1166706" 10th Mar
Hahaha I was kidding. To answer your questions, as far as I can remember, the deals have always been measured in heat
2010 was the first Flamedeer competition and it was awful. Even more awful than it was every year afterwards.

2017 was a good year as gifs no longer auto play. Good times.

Plus the subreddit was created in 2016, good place.

Regulars changed their names, posted same crap, haters got mad.

When did FS/FT begin/end?


Taken from the (curiously) now-deleted "Feedback" thread "FS Forum Changes - Important" describing the timetable of events in early 2017...

Feb 22 - Sitewide notification and feedback thread published
Mar 8 - Submit to FS/T forum closed. Banner added to section requesting Lokal migration.
Now-March 16 - FS/T team will actively need to monitor open threads and encourage resolution before month end. Anything left open by month end can be locked and user can be redirected to Lokal
March 08 - Opt in closes
March 09 - All opt-ins are imported to Lokal, full handover to Lokal team on any outstanding issues.
March 16 - Comments closed (all issues should be resolved before this)
March 20 - FS/T section is removed from HotUKDeals. Navigation to Lokal is added and handovers are completed.
2009

They say they don’t but if you can’t see say a plusnet deal anywhere other than here and it’s not directly available then it’s an advert. Similarly with some of the China deals not the obvious ones 40 odd deals posted by people connected with the site and two posted by members. What’s the saying if it looks a duck

Fair enough , Its HUKD's ball they can allow which comments they wish . But isn't your well intentioned question a bit pointless when an HUKD Mod removes posts detailing the "defining moments" they prefer not to be noticed /discussed ?

Perhaps you didn't type what you intended to within your first comment, hari'.

Maybe but now I feel sad..



Thinking about all the changes over the years, we probably all feel that way.

Exactly why I have not replied to most of the queries, as I know pointing to some threads will cause their disappearance.
