I think this site is going to the dogs lately (illegal pitbulls no doubt) and is attracting the wrong crowd, resulting in a proliferation of pointless and bizarre "deals".

I think I read that admin are considering a 'supermarket deals section' with the next site update.

I may have dreamt that, I'll have a little look. :thinking:

Original Poster

Yes, they are, it was (you probably won't be surprised to hear) me who started the thread about it. :whistling:

lol

Opps! :whistling:

dunno, i dont think the deals section is tooo bad really. Maybe it could do with tidying up a little bit. A supermarket section is good idea

What particular deals did you think were pointless or bizarre Bristol?

Original Poster

Personally, I think the site would benefit if deals were restricted to online availability only - no more instore things. I've posted instore deals myself in the past for DVDs and suchlike, but they do always mean someone has to physically go to a store (if they even have one near them) and that will usually mean some sort of travel cost being incurred, therefore adding to the total outlay on any "deal".

A deal should really be available to all, or the vast vast majority.

Yeah i do agree, people are here on an online deals site so it does kinda defeat the object lol. A 'Supermarket & General Instore' deals section would be a good idea

Two sections:
HotOnlineDeals
HotOfflineDeals

No ade, I don't. But I know the difference between "your" and "you're".

Me too just quicker to write it like that :whistling:

I like your Avatar :-D

gotta admit - some of the deals I have got - were (is this the correct spelling of were bristol??? it shouldn't be where should it???) only available instore........ Yes granted - some hotukdeals are strange..... (Like the breakfast one this morning) but it's registered users who click the vote hot button.

Prove it!

Do you remember as a kid, one of you would say "Do you know the meaning of such an' such?"
The other would then say "Yeah."
Then the original one would say, "What does it mean then?"
Then second one would say "I'm not telling you because you probably don't know yourself!"

Truth be known neither knew.

Was that of topic?

Can never find a good one :oops:

To be fair that thread has been pulled by the mods. As with all forums, you get people posting spam and (in this case) inappropriate things. However the mods have removed it! There haven't been any other instances of pirated / bootleg CDs / DVDs for sale on this site to the best of my knowledge.

Also everyone eats food, and posting good food deals means that people can look out for that item when they visit their supermarket (that they probably would have visited anyway).

As for computer games... what's wrong with that? Everyone who uses this site has a computer, so a proportion of those will play computer games! Doesn't mean that they don't do anything else with their time!

Not all deals are relevant to every user, so just don't click on the ones that you are not interested in.

The forum just needs better organisation / categorisation, I feel. Especially now there are so many deals being posted.

So you suggest:-

ChavDeals £FREE - £5a
Upperclass deals over £5,000
Working class around £1000
Food deals
electric deals
clothing deals
etc
etc

You cant just single out and catogorise one minority and assume the deal is for that particular minority, Its very close minded and i would have expected a little more from a reputable member.

and no, im not a 'chav' i do work and i couldnt give a sh1t whether im spelling correctly or not.

i think Admin would have a hard job trying to decide what deals should be classed as 'chav' deals as would mods, as they seem a lot more unjudgemental than yourself.

personally i like to see "some" supermarket deals

this is purely because i,like most people, shop in just one supermarket all the time

so i like to be aware of some offers that some other places have on

i cant understand why these are deleted though
(what happened to the fosters @ morrisons offer)

I don't agree with this. A deal's a deal. If its and instore deal all you have to do is phone up before going to see if they are in stock locally. The attraction of the current setup is that you can see all deals in one place. The more different sections you have (as on MSE) the greater the risk that you miss something because you are looking at the wrong thread / section.

So just because a user wants to be lazy, it's not a good idea? If the deals are organised by the type of products, why is that so hard? If you want a computer deal, go to Computers. If you want DVDs, got to DVDs. If you want Turkey Twizzlers and White Lightning, go to Food & Drink.

Yes, I know they're there, they need to be a lot more specific though, otherwise half the deals just end up under "General Shopping". :thumbsup:

i think you are well out of order BristolDeal, maybe we need a section for the up themselves think they know it all members to chat and find gucci clothing and caviar deals and so they dont have to lower themselves to normal member's levels.

How about a section with free punctuation and capital letters?

Just about. But it demonstrates the low educational levels of many members.
