It's a nice feature - I just hope everyone remembers to use it so we get a good idea of what everyone classifies as good deals!

Guys feel free to post in there, make something up, or copy another post from here. We'd like to see how that goes.

Yeah... this is the one chance you'll get to spam and generally try and overload the new site, because Admin can't fix the problems until someone's found them!!

See who can post the funniest deal, lol. Me and emma have been playing that one, lol.

As emma says try it out, the way things work overall is quite a bit different in terms of integration between forum and front page.

Hehe I don't think many people read this forum. Oh well they will have a surprise tomorrow then :P

Posted a Hot Deal. The product name didn't show up and couldn't edit the post.

Only three or four testees lol

Looks good guys!

Will test this afternoon!

Good point

BUG REPORT: There's no way to make the '£' sign appear in the 'Minimum … BUG REPORT: There's no way to make the '£' sign appear in the 'Minimum Spend' category in vouchers.See:http://beta.hotukdeals.com/deal/86/pc-world-discounthttp://beta.hotukdeals.com/deal/297/made-up-maplin-code



That's the very reason why it's being run past the members. :lol:

It should automatically insert the £ sign I think, but Paul's not typed it in...

Thanks poppy10. I noticed that at one point but never fixed it. Will do now!

I just submitted a deal, and delibrately put the end date before the start date to see what would happen. It got posted, but shown as expired (would be good if it warned via a pop up box that this is wrong, or just refused it), and of course i cant seem to edit the deal at all, like i could with a post.

You should be able to edit no prob megamoo, it's just a different button. Look on the bottom grey bar ont he right hand side.

Looks great. Nice one.
Are you going to have a 'Help' Forum as well?

The clock at the bottom is one hour slow.

Most servers run on GMT... it's a bit stupid really but here in the UK we're actually an hour ahead during the summer because of BST and daylight savings.

The edit function isn't working. It opens a page with the post ready to edit, but it won't allow the text to be altered.

the forum main page looks very MSE like....i prefer the current HUKD forum page tbh....the front page is very good and a great improvement though, especially the ratings theyre most definately HOT !

Original Poster

Of all things to say ryoooh! :P It's actually the same colour scheme as here but the forum is full width. What do you find mse like?

jcat - Are you editing your own post or someone else's?

you can only add to a description, not edit what was there before, in a post you made yourself.

I don't like the way other people can add to your description Admin, on your main post.

Original Poster

Oh I see yes. It has the original description locked. I'll think on that...I think the point was that so people couldn't go back and change details to make a thread not cold/hot etc.

Everyone is now a beta tester

Things will probably be a little rocky over the next few days but hang in there!

Nice beta site, will be good to c the finished version.

looks pretty good. still open to beta testers?

Original Poster

Well we are in the thick of it now So we're all beta testers at this point. There'll be a few bumps over the next few days but overall it's been pretty good today.

is it me or have the "make forum read" button gone :s ?

Look in quick links near the top of the page

Inside the forum click on Forum Tools at the toppish right and then click Mark this forum read.

[SIZE=2]My private message folder shows the following:[/SIZE]


Inbox contains 14 messages.
You have 104 messages stored, of a total 50 allowed. (]Empty Folder) Jump to Folder:

It's showing that I have 104 messages, although only allowed 50!!!

Plus my inbox only has 14 & there are 12 in my sent box = 26 in total.

Any ideas??:confused:

I think you'll just have to delete them all rocky. The system imported all messages ever, even ones you had previously deleted! My inbox came with 2500 messages! LOL!!

Original Poster

Hmmm I'll have a look at that rocky1man. I had a similar problem that I cleared out in the database.

The site is sooooo much better - excellent job!

Original Poster

Thanks greenfeld! Only going to get better I hope

Do you still do the offers where if you post X amount of deals/comments you get freebies?

Original Poster

We've done those offers every now and then as part of a promotion or celebration. We are getting close to our 2nd birthday soon though....so who knows
