Right...I see how you save a custom filter to remove the rubbish away from the deals now, but I had to be logged in to do it ...I think you may loose a few people who like to "look but not touch" ...the guests of this world.

I would also suggest changing the Temperature Threshold to - (minus) something also, as you may miss deals that have been marked as cold, but infact arent lol

If you are set to All - All then you do get everything. We've changed the default front page to go to All - Deals though now.

Basically the top navigation let's you select forums or categories in any combination (for example you could view posts in all forums for "Kids" --or-- you could view Vouchers in all categories).

The tabs then sort this selection by letting you see ones that are hot (over a certain degree), ones newly posted, or ones newly discussed.

It isn't mum-proof either. I just introduced my mum to HUKD, and she loved it, and was just getting her head around it. (She's not at all internet-literate.) But the new layout completely baffles her. (And me too, truth be told.)

Don't feel too bad, it's not 23 year old who's spent half his life on the internet proof either:p

It's not anyone proof. It's very confusing, it feels now like it's someone's personal club that only their friends and the 'in-club' can use; I don't want to randomly click everywhere for 20 minutes and try and work out how to use the site, how to use simple elements of it. (same as why I've never used facebook or anything similar) Lif'e is too short and busy to invest time in 'learning to use a website'. Why should I need to 'learn to use a website' any more than I should need to 'learn to use a book'?

MSE did it well; when they changed their forums they changed the look but kept navigation the same. Changing the basics of navigation is not generally a good idea unless there are compelling reasons.

Thank god for that, I was starting to wonder if at 33 I wasjust too past it to be able to get my head around these new fangled web-pages.
