what's "brought a deal"?
#2
bought a deal as in the user has seen an item on hot deals e.g. 10mp camera from ASDA at £50 and gone out and purchased the item after reading it on this site. Basically an indicator of how popular an item is, but is based on real stats (i.e. how many people had brought the item) rather than how good they think it is (but some people may vote deals hot vs cold but already have the item or have no intension of buying it.
#3
oh - you mean
BOUGHT ?
#4
I know, but how many people have the time to read every post to a very hot deal. The bought icon would be a second quick indicator to a passing reader that the deal is hot (and not from idiots just randomly voting it hot or cold and not actually buying the item)

yeah - idiots bringing instead of buying :roll:

tried that idea before but a hot deal would have hundreds of posts


Thats why only a selction would appear (like only a selection of feedbacks apear in eBay under a persons profile, but a user can view the whole list if they want to) or scrap the hot / cold idea and have a system where users vote on certain statements like:

[LIST=1]
[*]would defiantly buy
[*]would probably buy
[*]would defiantly not be buying
[/LIST]

These statements could be translated into the hot / cold bar where option one would add 1 to the score and make it hot, option two would do nothing and option three would subtract 1 from the score and make the item colder.

This would address a combined factor of users giving a reason for their voting rather but not asking if they had bought the item.

Nothing, just like you can't stop someone voting something hot for no reason other than they just felt like it but didn't like the item.

If you wanted to make it more sophisticated you could make the person creating the deal, add the bar code of the item and to submit a bought claim, a user must enter the same barcode to succesfully add the comment, or limit people to so many boughts a day.

I think your idea sounds good, but in practice is it just not a more complicated heat bar?

But that would mean I would effectively be voting everything cold as I rarely buy anything.

Oh and when I do, it's not 'defiantly'.... Just keeping all this on track :lol:

Sorry I need to start using a spell checker lol :-D

Thing is with my system, you're not actually voting it cold directly, you're saying you wouldn't buy it which is translated as a cold because it doesn't personally appeal to you however the moderators would not allow you to vote an excessive number of deals hot or cold per day (10 successive hot or cold without any of number 4 (see below)) without you having your account suspended and a email sent as it's considered you spamming the system.

There could be a fourth category of:

4. This item does not appeal to me

which most people could choose if they did not feel anything about the deal (positive / negaitve).

All the hot / cold bar tells you is the net effect of the deal i.e. whether there were more positive or negative votes, but with a slightly more complicated one you could gather more stats from it, such as who would buy it and how many people were not interested in the deal and you could break it down into male / female users and age group. This would be dependent on users having accurate information on their age, location and gender

The system we've got is basically what you describe though. There are 4 options, the 4th being not to vote at all (my normal choice) :)

I agree, but sometime when looking for a present or if you are unfamiliar with an item, it's handy to know who the deals appealed to most, male / female and their ages and how many people voted. A figure of hot and 154 tells me 154 people liked it but not how many didn't or how many voted in total. For all I know, 354 people voted it hot and 200 people voted it cold, but the result is still the same, however a large number voted it cold.
