you'd then have to ban hot votes for no reason as well resulting in a huge drop in the amount of people voting which would then make the whole thing pretty much worthless.Its perfectly fine the way it is and I just wouldn't take it so personally if someone votes your deal cold.

Not taking it personally, I feel if you buy something because you see it as a good deal and someone else thinks its not, for whatever reason, it would be nice to know why? That way I can at least return the item if it is not a deal.

If you think something you bought is a good deal then i'd leave it at that. you shouldn't need some sarky smart ass on the interweb tellinng you to take back a handbag thats available from amazon for 3p cheaper or some other dafft reason. If your happey with what you bought regardless of what other people say then for you its a good deal.

I agree with what you are saying, just that sometime someone else can see something you cant, just wanted a reason.

I get your point-I always state a reason for a cold vote-I dont always post when I make a hot vote tho which may seem like a contradiction. thing is,I very much appreciate everyone who takes the time and trouble to post-Ive had loadsa bargains from HUKD-so if I vote a deal down I do explain why.

This comes up soooo often. Who cares if some fools vote deals cold for no reason, if they do it regularly I believe that it is flagged up and the mods can reduce/remove their voting power.
If a deal is good it will get hot anyway, I think that if we were forced to give a reason for voting cold, many members would not bother to vote at all on poor deals.
The whole point of the voting system is to show what the consensus is on a deal, if you make it harder to vote cold that hot then the whole system is flawed IMHO :)


I care obviously, and I think you should have to comment equally if its hot or cold. but thats just my point of view.

I must say when i vote cold and say why i vote cold i get abuse sometimes just because people don't like what I'm saying.

Probably, because you're there just to stir up something. I've never had that problem. Unless of course you vote cold because you might think the item is 'stupid' ,'useless' or something else.

Its not a contradiction really. If you vote hot then its because its a good price and you haven't seen it cheaper elsewhere.
If you vote cold there should be a reason, be it that its cheaper somewhere else or whatever.

I agree 100% with the OP. All cold votes should require an adequate reason.

We should strive to keep everything open and transparent.
