Found 17th Feb 2009
It lasted a total of around 2 minutes which has got to be a record. Does anyone know why it's disappeared?

Hello, anyone?

Why not repost?

Why not repost?



Because if it was taken off that quick then I presume there was a reason so not worth reposting. However, it would be nice to be told the reason and not just have it removed so I at least know for the future, it really bugs me when this happens or when people vote cold and don't give a reason, are we supposed to be psychic?

Thanks for commenting though, at least someone has!!

possibly a duplicate and therefore member spammed?

Depends on what the deal was, if it was for the bedroom stuff then its a repost hotukdeals.com/ite…f-/

I had that with an Asda instore deal I posted last week or so.

I found the X-men trilogy 6 disc set for £10 instore at Asda. Looked high and low on this site and never found it. Posted it and it had gone inside 10 mins. No-one even showed me a link confirming it as a duplicate.

A mod just reply/pm'ed me to say it was member spammed. Still haven't ever found it anywhere on here.

If memory serves AndyWedge posted that...think I commented on it at the time. Problem is the damn search on this site is soooooo poor its shocking. Have you got the google search tool Gary made? not used it myself but its supposed to be good


prob is sometime, you can write in a thread 'DUPLICATE' etc but then its spammed seconds later, so the OP dont have time to read it. would be good if the OP could always access the thread or something so they could tell


EDIT - hotukdeals.com/ite…ec/ this one?

Ages agoI had a moan about this and said that a reason should be sent to the OP - I was just shouted down - luckily the fool that always took it upon themselves to spam other people's posts hasn't been seen for sometime!

thing is if its member spammed mods wont know until they are asked to check, would have to be an automatic message system in the event it happens...would be good that

I always Spam dupes but I always write in the thread unless someone else already has. Dupes are supposed to be spammed BUT if no one says anything or its spammed to quick we get these sort of threads. Bit of a Catch 22 situation

No, neither of these, it was for a 25p hot wheels car which then had £2.49 p&p on top but this didn't change no matter how many you ordered, so you could order 20 at 25p and still pay £2.49 so great for party bags - or so I thought anyway!!

I don't have the tool, I find the text only searches on here are ok for me usually.

It's either that or I google "X-men trilogy hukd" and usually find what I'm after. I've had a problem recently that I can't find my own threads. When I posted that X-Files DVD post it never once showed up anywhere for me besides my recent activity. Wouldn't even show up in my thread history!

Few bugs in the system I think.

It maybe because I posted a link to the image file in the listing.

I remember a while back a FSFT thread I made went mad on me and kinda closed itself down(wasn't expired or spammed, just wouldn't open up when you clicked it).

Mod pm'ed me to say list it without putting a pic in the listing - just to add them as posts on the thread.

wasn't it amazon market place you had in the op? if it was it would have been spammed

It was marketplace but I've seen plenty of these on HUKD before now so didn't see why it would be a problem. Are you not allowed to post marketplace items and if not, why not? It's still a shop as such so shouldn't be any different to other deals in my opinion.

Marketplace deals are not allowed as they are not a retailer and are mainly individual sellers. Also it creates big problems with people listing stuff for self promo reasons.

NOPE,..Marketplace not allowed, same as Playtrade. You wouldnt have seen any Marketplace deals here unless they were spammed too. point being is it might be a member here, therefore its self promo. Plus would only have 1 or 2 items not available to others

Well that's a real shame, I ordered a load of these for my daughter's birthday party so it would appear they have a lot, and they boys thought they were fab, shame the deal can't be shared with others just because of where they are listed.

when i looked there was only 1 left instock anyway

Still trying to find out if amazon dvd, game, ink cart deals should be allowed anymore as they go through indigostarfish now via amazon and are classed as amazon preferred sellers not amazon direct.
