Down and up voting is working fine for me. Perhaps your voting privileges have been restricted rather than HUKD being broken?

nope it does work as it went down for 1 of out the full page, but most didnt budge and if that was the case my upvotes wouldnt count...

I may be wrong but I believe that Admin can restrict up and down voting privileges separately. But if one of your down votes worked, then voting isn't broken. It's more likely that the page needed refreshing as others had voted and balanced out your votes.

Its a conspiracy. I'll try to find you a deal on tin foil hats. Don't bother voting on it though.....

as far as I know one cold vote doesn't hold as much weight as a hot vote so you might not see a change

Which rather defeats the idea behind the site if they can restrict good or bad votes. If I vote too many times that things are rubbish (because they are) and only see a handful of good deals, if my voting is stopped to only allow positives, that's not a fair reflection.

I would disagree. There's a difference between genuine hot and cold voting and abuse of the voting system.

How can you have genuine hot and cold if you take one away from the voter?

I'm not the right person to ask but my expectation would be that one would only be removed AFTER evidence of voting abuse.

Hi - please drop the team a message and they can review this for you. There is no need to vote en masse just to test this.
