your wife can sign up but only if you contact the mods and get clearance for this BEFORE you create the account.

ive been a member now over 2 years and can't do the scratch and win, so good luck with multiple accounts, think they should also look at how long someone has been a member rather than how many post's they have made

dont agree with you there

you may have been a member for so long but what have you contributed to site - deals - freebies - helped someone even posted a joke - erm ..no

some members on here for just a few months and actively posting some great deals - comps etc

so why should you be priveleged for just signing on

agreed why sign up if you are not going to join in

To be fair to lomax his/her first post was a deal post which is probably far more of a contribution than most of the members who've joined in the last couple of days.....all lomax has to do is post 3 more times to qualify for the comp.

Admin will want the comp to reward existing members as well as attract new ones........

Yes but 2 posts,including todays and one deal in two years isn't much of a contribution to be fair:roll:

its a joke the number of multis that have been created in the last couple of days.

imo only people who joined prior to Saturday when the competition started should be allowed to enter

I sort of agree with that, it stop multis, new members joining just for the comp and spamming half the site, but then it doesnt encourage new members to join, which i am sure is what the comp is about

I'm still having trouble even playing the bloody thing it says i have already played when clearly i have not ???

I know what you mean,it has just turned what was a great competition into a bit of a p take,have a look at this thread full of supposed new members contributing nothing just needing to get a few posts in
hotukdeals.com/ite…sda

dont suppose it matters too much but has just taken the shine off the whole thing as some people could be joining just to resell etc etc

i 100% agree, and ppl should be able to bump posts to 5 to scratch neither.
They just leeches that jump on the best deals before contributing members see them

Holly i tried 2 different comps on our house different browsers, cleared the cache, etc etc it worked for 1 day then back to normal for me what a joke. Im now going to open 200 new accounts and abuse it just like the rest i have never seen so many new members with very low post counts amazing what people will do for a freebie.

I would not stoop so low as to open multi account's but it really is not right maybe it should get pulled.

I personally don't think people under 500 posts and certain amount of rep should of gotten close.

If the admins really wanted to make it fair. They should of given at least 6 months worth of sign up before letting anyone as well.

i log on nearly everyday looked at posting quite a few posts in the past but did't want to duplicate deals and get negative feed back, i have posted in the past fair enough only once but thats still prob more than most of the members on here,

if its the case of just putting deals up i could say fox's biscuits half price at morrisons but if you go to any supermarket at the mo there all doing the same, sometimes there's no point in putting a deal up unless its a really good deal, thats in my eyes,

People are only joining up for the comp that's what is annoying me not just the multi account's yes you should have had to be a member for some time. In the rules it says people must have made a certain number of posts before they can play well i have seen somebody with 15 posts win ? and me a cannot even play because it ****ed.

I'd agree with that TBH - saves all the hassle and rewards the people who helped make HUKD

So are the mods actively banning multiple accounts then, this could be quite time consuming????

Yes but surely they want genuine members?? Not 2 accounts from one user?? There's a good chance IMO that the 200,000th account will be a duplicate. Also there must be a lot of inactive / banned accounts so "200,000 members" is slightly misleading IMO

It`s not pointed at you personally no, it`s aimed towards ALL who have not contributed but just want to take.

unfortunately members with posts counts of 1 or 2 that have been members along time tend to be alias accounts, meaning set up and forgotten about, bet a few members set up a few now for the next comp too

Thanks for info - repped

2nd EDIT

Thanks AndyWedge for clarifying via PM

I've been signed up for a while but never posted because I couldn't get my account working (I'm not good with computers, my daugher has just showen me how and helped me email admin). I go to post something today and see all these things about people only joining to win some game and alot of negative comments about people with low posts. Are new members or people who don't post really so hated? I thought this was a website and therefore a bit of fun?

It is fun, welcome don't let it get you down:thumbsup:

I don't understand what everyone is getting so annoyed about, it's a freebie, a comp, so who cares? Surely it's a good thing, this site has too many lurkers, maybe if they are encouraged to sign up, they may wish to post more and contribute to the forums more, be it deals, whatever, instead of just hovering in the background without contributing.

What do people define as a contribution to the site, people could post 500 posts and all of it could be crap:p is it hot deals, I have posted a fair few in my time, I stopped when I realised how flawed the voting system was, may start again now it's been changed.

But I have not posted 100's of deals but I have lost count to the amount I have helped on threads and mainly through pm when it comes to helping some through disputes, nothing to do with HUKD, but it's all about the community. There are others who look out for fs/t scammers who may not post masses of deals but stop people getting scammed, people contribute in different ways and getting lurkers to join in is a good thing IMO.

Oh and no win here :-(

think things are going out of hand a little
cmon people don't be greedy
and OP why should your wife be allowed to enter as well as you.
At the end of the day its the luck of the draw and some people will do absolutely anything to cheat the system or say its unfair




hukd is a business and the more members he has the more profit hopefully he can make by clicking his affiliated lists.

Competitons should be open to all within discretion (one per household ip address ) etc

new members should have the right to win aswell if admin can bring them to this site.

it already is, although dont think that can be staffed anyway

Voucher codes can be used at Zavvi.co.uk against any purchase and will be valid for six months. Only one entry per household per day.
