I'm asking if it is possible for HUKD to send out personal e-mails to each and every member, (much in the same way that they already send out happy birthday e-mails) to remind us of upcoming important events. Then to make it unique to HUKD within the e-mail suggest gifts to purchase from current hot deals.

I don't care about your anniversary or need a notification about it … I don't care about your anniversary or need a notification about it kkthxbai.


Then have this picture of a Guinea pig in a burger bun instead...

Not a joke but i'm Welsh if that helps?

Just check on Facebook then?
The site is as screwed up as it could possibly be, if they tried to add more things, then it would probably explode.

Will take a look, thanks.

To be fair, it is a good suggestion & something that can no longer be an “off-the-shelf” add-on to the site now that the vBulletin (forum-based software) technology is no longer being used.

You could set-up a date (any kind of anniversary, or examination results day, or the day somebody passes their driving test, or whatever) for which you need to buy a product, & also add some tags (or free format text) that relate to items you may consider as a suitable gift.

From a few weeks in advance of the date, a daily e-mail could be sent that summarises that day's deals where the tag or text was quoted.

A link in each e-mail would be provided to cease all further messages for this event, or defer them for a few days, or a week. The event itself could be maintained from the individual user’s profile settings too.

This suggestion would drive more traffic to the site if it was marketed as a gift reminder service, & existing members would be able to promote the site by suggesting the service to their family & friends (unless, of course, one family member ends up with the same set of headphones that have been listed continually for the last 3 months, for example, if every other member of the family has initiated the same search text).

This is obviously a feature request, Carley, and, as stated, the site's core functionality needs to be reinstated & addressed first, but I think you have raised a viable addition to the site.

Well done!

BFN,
