I keep seeing new deals (even very great deals) going very cold in the first few minutes, most likely as members are voting cold for a laugh. And couldn't help thinking something could be done.
Could you not add a rule to the voting system where cold votes are held back until X number of votes are clicked.
E.g. in the first 100 clicks (hot or cold), cold votes will not make the deal go below 0 until after 'X' number of cold votes. At that point the total number of X votes will be removed.
That way the deal wont go negative unless there is a number of cold votes spoiling the fun for the constant cold vote eediats!
