Does a deal's heat rating decrease over time or is it only cold votes that will decrease a deal's heat?

Just curious as my deal reached a peak of 998 degrees so far (so close to my first 1000 badge, bloody gutted!) and it's dropped to 996. http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/40w-5-port-usb-charger-with-1… Read More

It's now hit 7 days old so it won't be under the weekly deals any more, so it'll have less reach. Obviously people will still find it if they search for it, but I'm wondering if the 998 to 996 overnight would be based on cold vote(s) or whether it's declining heat based on time?

I know it's not exactly an important thing but my curiosity has got the better of me.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers paddymcn, appreciated!. See now I'm really confused, so I got heat from yourself, obviously a long standing contributor, and I got the notification yet it's not budged from 996. So weird...

Ahh you guys! Yeah it's moved. Sorry to be a knob, I know this was sort of fishing. But it'd been on 990+ for 2 days and I was a bit gutted haha.

Appreciate it <3

now you've done it, now more people will give it heat.

wouldn't worry it's a bit to old for anyone to worry about fishing for votes.
