OK emma.:thumbsup:

Well to start with, it's a Hong Kong site, and we don't allow non-UK sites on the forums.

I didn`t know that, was still a good deal......if it ever gets here !

Well as per the thread on that subject, more like we don't allow non-UK sites that aren't UK facing and that we don't know the reputation of.

If it was Ledshoppe.com, I can testify!

Hi Guys

The thread was not a scam!....I posted what I considered a good deal in good faith, it seems that posting for sites outside the UK are not allowed....but not sure how the likes of Play Asia or even CD-wow, or for that matter Pixmania, 7dayshop, are allowed. There is a previous post for UXCELL and it was still there 5 minutes ago, from before Xmas.....but I don't make the rules!

can someone pm me the website again please?
I want to order one. thanks in advance.

edash is correct.This site was linked in a post on the thread and was not removed:
hotukdeals.com/for…ell
:?

maybe it was cos it wasnt posted as a hot deal? was the one that was removed?

nop..was posted the same, even the merchant details where already present on UKHD........but I see all gone quiet now...........little posts from the rule makers......what I'm still not clear on is how other non-UK sites are allowed, and gain their reputation?

i think by reputation, if peops have dealt with them, they can state there views, maybe that would help, i think its all about only reccomending trusted sites

There's a big thread on the issue of foreign sites, can you add discussion to there please and read what was discussed?

Actually I had stated my recommendation for this site, and have actually bought the item I had posted, plus twice in the past and had no problem with items received, which had also been noted by others who had posted on the deal.....anyway I'm bored with this now...so will let others make their own minds up on what they should/should not post in the future.

All admin are doing is trying to look after the members in the best possible way.

Any new site that is posted is automatically vetted.

I know people even have issues with UK sites also, but that is what happens in everyday life, not every item bought from every single company has a happy ending. But I think all admin are doing is trying to learn each new company before they allow them to be a regular on HUKD.

There would be nothing worse than Admin leaving up a new site that offers a bargain from another country and 90% of those people never see their goods or their money. We all know it would not be Admins fault but I feel Admin prefer to keep it as safe as possible.

I bought one of the recommened cheap chinese mp3\mp4 players from uxcell, 23 quid delivered, 2Gb. It arrived in just over a week and its great ! Only downside is theres no instructions. In fact I logged on to ask if anyone else that has one knows if its correct that when playing music the display stays on - I would have thought it would shut off to save battery. Am I doing something wrong or is there an option somewhere ??
