looks like they do if they find you you hit expire and spam so i would think they have an eye on cold voting as well.

As above, I can guarantee there are the same people voting cold for no purpose-the same as constantly spamming, both are as bad as each other IMO


We usually give a warning first about cold voting. If our advice is ignored, it may lead to a suspension.

If you are concerned about someone's voting patterns, please use the contact us link to forward your concerns to admin.

But the cold voters, usually just ice every deal leaving no comments, so we have no idea who cold votes, and its really starting to get frustrating. I mean if you don't like the deal and can't find a better deal just walk away, why on earth do people have to vote it cold?

Why?


No just for the wrong reasons, didn't really understand the system of voting with the way it was setup. Though I now know why the voting is more frowned about from both admins points of view and members.

Is there a proper 'how-to' for the site? The 'How it Works' link is very vague.

You often see people voting things cold because they think it might be too expensive, regardless of it being the cheapest deal around (Logitech G25 deal today)

Or you get people voting WDTV deals cold because "The PS3/PopCorn Hour are much better", products which cost over twice as much..

The newcomers guide is probably the most comprehensive guide to the forum.
