Because I have heated several deals and some go to 8 some go to 7. So I'm guessing it's in halfs. Try it out:thumbsup:

explanation i was given

[SIZE="2"][COLOR="Red"]It has, there was a review last night & the vote power is now set currently at a maximum of 7.5°.

The deal vote calculation range gets reviewed by Admin & The IT team on a regular basis & they look at factors such as how quickly & how many deals reach 'Hot', & the vote calculation / weighting is adjusted accordingly if required.

If that is the case.

To Admin.

Can you announce heat changes in Feedback when changed please. Will stop people querying it or pondering why they have changed. Like me and the few who have obviously wondered why. Will save hassle.:)

I get you.

I seem to remember the forum used to display decimals of a degree before, unless I dreamt it.

18 now

Noticed this last night myself. I'm on the magical 7.5 myself now, was on 9 previously. Doesn't really bother me whatever I'm on though.

BTW. How do you type a degrees sign on a computer? You know the little tiny circle thingy.
#17
Annoyed really. worked so hard to add a valued 9 Degrees to users deals but now its been reduced.

there are many deals on HUKD that should get on the hot wall and never manage to as the majority just look through the hot wall. This will make it even harder now for deals to get onto the hot wall.

Back to 9 degrees I say, no need for change.

Surely it makes no difference as to what makes the "Hot wall"(I have no idea about what makes a deal onto the "Hot wall" or "Front page"), as all deals will be voted with exactly the same parameters?

There was an announcement thread created which could only be posted in by mods (to prevent items being buried by discussion) but it seems to have dissappeared........but there is thread that indicated is did exist for a short while.

I noticed this morning i was on 8..........thought i'd been demoted. :lol:

I don't mind though what it is.........there is enough users here that if a deal is hot it will get hot. :)
#21
One i heated up increased by 7,the one i just did now was 8 how strange.

Someone with half a voting power that ends with half a degree had already voted on the 2nd one, so your vote gave it 7and a half. It appeared as 8 because of the previous vote.

Surely changing the temperature at which a deal/voucher/freebie/comp becomes hot would have been the better & more obvious solution, rather than taking away voting power & consequently making all future posts a bit cooler - alittlelesshotukdeals?

Does anyone actually care when something becomes hot? The default view sorts the posts by 'Discussed' and I imagine a lot of people sort be 'New' - Sorting by when an item becomes hot might result in missing out on something... E.g. a deal with limited stock.

Also, do these changes need to be made right across the board? Competitions rarely break the 500° mark - the prize has to be extremely high in value or the post submitted by edi - so this hinders the competition section.

Lastly, why not reward your top ten hottest users by giving them a voting power of 10?

Glad I stumbled across this, I thought i'd lost the ability to do basic math.
