Voted cold. :)


3.Getting your deal made hot, has no bearing on the reputation you have, so why so many people seem so anxious to get their deals voted hot seems weird to me. I understand it brings prominence in terms of appearing in the front, but if your deal is not hot, its not hot.


This is incorrect.

This has been discussed in depth in the past, even to an anonymous multiple choice of why voted cold/hot ie great/bad price, etc. A lot of the issues come from people voting cold not because of price, but pecause of other reasons, ie like dell hate HP or the other way round.
We just learn to live with it, normally hot deals will shine through whatever.
thesaint....please could you explain, does the temperature of your posted deals affect your rep, or am I misreading? Thanks

Yes, the temperature of a deal effects your voting power.

So post a real stinker(thesaint) and it diminishes your power, but post a corker(andreahh24) and your voting power is boosted. :)

cool...right thats it, I need to find another Hot deal, my Nikon one went well....so OK what was your stinker, and to even it out which was your best? Sorry gone off topic...just interested.

I had this discussion with someone the other day. I thought the most a person's vote could heat a deal by (or cool it down) was 9 degrees. Apparently it used to be 12 on the old site, but only 9 now?
And I was also under the impression that it was a person's post count that enabled them to heat a deal more? More posts = more voting power (up to a maximum of 9).

That was an interesting little refresher course. So post count is just one of the factors. :)

For me I think you should have to post in the thread before you vote cold.
Most the reasons posted are either wrong or as someone pointed out 'I hate dell so voted cold'.

Personally I would only vote cold if I knew where to get it cheaper or it was a rubbish item (ie doesn't work properly or something).

Example. the W810i refurb for £17.50 for Virgin, someone voted cold. You would be lucky to pick that phone up second hand on a boot sale for £20, let alone from a network with guarantee.

The Bigpockets thread. The person who voted cold as 'almost everything was out of stock. Most hadn't been added when he voted cold, and everything had been in stock, hardly a cold deal because it had sold out, just shows it was hot that they sold that quick!

Where has the BP £2 million clearance thread gone anyway, couldn't find ot
