So it becomes another general selling site with no connection to this site. Sounds like all your after is advertising it on here which is never really going to happen. Carry on setting up the site but a lot of people already sell on FAcebook, Ebay, Amazon etc and a new site will be hard to direct traffic too. Even Shpock has not taken off the way the creator imagined and is dying slowly.

I wouldn't be setting up any such site - I have an interest in using such a site but you seem to have missed my point. It's not about 'yet another selling site' or 'advertising'. Some members are put out at losing the community aspect of the FS/FT section on HUKD - now whether a separate site that is unofficial, yet frequented by HUKD members by way of only allowing HUKD members that have posted X deals/X posts access is better than something like lokal, remains to be discussed/shot down.

Just pick any existing site that offers a Classifieds section.

If you wish to validate whether a member elsewhere is also a member here, simply use the internal "Private Messaging" system on one/other/both site(s) to gain the confirmation you need.

I think it would be largely more successful if it had its own page or at least forum. Only my opinion. Yes, the PM idea is a fantastic one, but I was thinking of something more moderator based on an unofficial site. Once the member is known to be the same, they get approved for listing.

Hi I'm not quite sure I understand what you're asking here. If it helps for now, we wouldn't agree to you creating a site on the back of any mention, identification or reference to HUKD.

I think it'd be sensible if you put any formal request through to the correct team via the contact form and they'll get it reviewed and will respond - hotukdeals.com/con…act

Thanks magic, that's exactly what I was seeking clarification wise.
