Mods do yeah. I would like to but my concern is the reciprocal voting would get out of hand (both for back slappers and for people upset).

Its a fair point that, though I'd like to know purely because it would be interesting to see, I can see how it would be abused.

I know you get asked this over and over, but can't we have a forced 'reason' box added when voting cold? Then have that information listed (With or without usernames)

thanks for replying so soon Paul, much appreciated :)

Why dont you try it and see, might work.....i for one would love to thank people for voting my post hot.....if they vote it cold im not a person who will go on a vengance streak lol

and, if you get too many people getting "upset or back slapping" you can always turn it off :)

thanks :)

This would probably put people off voting cold. Don't you think?

I can see a lot of problems with this. People could get really upset with others for voting their deals cold and as mentioned above it could lead into revenge, etc.

I think maybe having a least a counter on how many people have voted cold or hot could help though.

why would you want to thank people for voting something hot,if its a good deal you're the one who did them a good turn so they should be thanking you,not the other way around.

or.......iv had an idea...

What if, the button was only active once you become "Solar Flare" that way its something to lead up to .
With anyone on here thats a Solar....there bound to know the rules by then and know not to back slap or upset people!

If the button is abused then the rule should suggest the OP will get a warning if button is abused !

i dont know, its just an idea :)

Hehe I almost think it's more senior members who would get upset about it :D Newer members probably aren't as passionate! That's a not a bad thing!

If you could vote hot or warm without putting a reason but to vote cold you have to put a reason people will simply vote cold less time. That is a fact.

Reputation is an example of this, people have to write something in order to give rep.

A question for you Do you always give rep to the OP whenever you voted hot in his/her deal ?

I am quite confident to say that probably 99% of the people give a lot less rep a day than the number of times that they vote cold, hot or warm ?

I wonder whether the mods could give us these number what's the average of vote/rep per members. 4:1 , 5:1 10:1, 100:1 ?? :?

Not true, when giving rep you can simply leave it blank. :thumbsup:

Ohh yes you are right, It's just that I always write something :oops: my mistake, but I still think that rep is a good example.

I guess then what Vibeone says about putting a reason then if they could leave blank they it might not be too bad. Because people could put a reason or not.

i also think people would probably not vote as much as they do, and this is either way, you know how easy it for rows to erupt if someone doesnt agree with someone saying a deal is hot or cold, seeing who voted what will probably cause more, can see now why a thanks button wouldn't be a good idea either
#16
there is enough conflict on the forum as it is due to the "gotta have the last post coz im always right" attitude and just general whinging and moaning that only the british do so well

my vote is leave it as it is

It definitely would (IMO ;-)).

I hardly vote at all and never vote cold in vouchers or freebies - in fact I wonder why there is a cold vote option in those forums.
I always give rep if I buy the deal or use the voucher.

if people knew what I voted hot or cold or I had to give a reason one way or another then I and I suspect many other wouldn't vote again for the reason that I wouldn't particulary want some freak sending me 40 emails a day to find out why I voted his £15 packet of mints cold. Its bad enough with people already taking the hump and opening thread after thread wanting to know why their precious deal has been voted cold.

Another reason it be a total waste of time is that it'd turn into an extension of the misc with everyone voting their pals deal hot and vice versa. It would skew the whole point of voting as was seen with the kfc threads.

That happens anyway though.

And a list of reasons for voting cold, without usernames, wouldn't allow any freaks to PM or email you 40 emails a day about their mints....

It would be much worse under the op's proposal. And a list of reasons, that already happens when people comment.
No need for a change, its only people who get their knickers in a twist when their deals are voted cold that want any sort of change.
leave the voting as it is.

Again, I mostly agree with you, but I think the whole voting this IS getting worse - for many many reasons.

Its just about batting ideas around really, at least for me.

My spidey sense tells me to expect a "why are all my ideas shot down in flames" thread.

I'd like to see the names of those who expire and spam threads displayed.
#26
you are always gonna get idjuts who will vote cold and expire , spam deals if you see a continual problem report it

tbh i dont know why they bbother i had a number of cold voters to start my nintendo ds deal off, which didnt really matter in the end as its 1 of the few deals to make it to over 4000 degees

as long as the mods keep an eye on it and investigate and punish accordingly, the end
