You only add heat to deals, vouchers etc not misc or for sale thread and you click the red/blue arrows next to the title

[SIZE=3][COLOR=Red][B]Temperature & voting

The temperature gauge is used to judge how hot a deal is, and if it should make it to the main front page. Once a deal reaches a certain temperature it is added to the main page of HotUKDeals. Anybody registered can click hot or cold on a particular deal, and this will increase or decrease the temperature.

There are several factors which dictate the impact your vote will have, as explained by Admin below:

The voting rep is based on the temperature of deals you have submitted, the time registered, number of posts, and forum rep. The first is by far the largest and the other factors are there to balance it out and give some voting rep to people who spend their time helping others etc in the forum.

So if you want to have a larger impact voting for deals, your best bet is to start posting your own hot deals, and the hotter they are voted, the more impact you will have when voting.

To vote hot or cold on a deal, use the blue and red arrow buttons to the left of every deal. You can also vote lukewarm by using the grey square in the middle If you are a new member, you may see the temperature move by very little, or not at all. If you see it take a big jump, it may mean that someone else was voting on the deal at the same time as you, and you see the cumulative effect when the page refreshes.

If you are cold voting a deal, it is good forum etiquette to post a note in the deal as to why you have done so. There is nothing more confusing to a new member, than to post a deal, only to see it go cold with no explanation. If you found the item cheaper elsewhere, please let us know where and how. If you have no interest or knowledge about the deal at all, please don’t vote cold, just move on.

HUKD has systems in place to detect serial cold voters, and it may lead to a ban from the forums, as it is against the code of conduct.

You click on the button underneath somebody's username if you find their post helpful. You are encouraged to spread it around as much as you like. When you click on the button you can leave positive rep (for helpful deals and things which have helped). You can also leave a comment. Reputation is anonymous; however the recipient of the reputation will be able to see the comment and which post was made.

You can view your reputation points and comments people have left for you >>HERE <<, the page can also be accessed by clicking on "Control Panel" near the top right of the forum. The most recent 10 comments are available for view, and the total points are in the top right of the rep area.

What the different coloured boxes mean: Orange lights in your rep mean that you have received positive reputation from someone with a positive reputation score. This will have increased your points. Grey lights are also positive rep, but have been given by someone with no reputation, and therefore does not have the ability to affect your reputation score. This will have had no effect on your points.

When you give out rep, it is not a set amount. The more you have, the more you give with a single click.

More useful info can be found here :

The amount of vote & rep you have increases over time with post count, rep received & the heat of deals you post, but initially you may see very little change in the deal vote register when you vote.[/B]
thank you understand it all now i think and have left you rep lol;-)
Hi - is it possible to see whether someone who has replied to a post has voted it hot or cold? If so, please could you explain how to check this?

no there isnt anywhere to see, when you click hot or cold that is it, you dont give reasons for it, alot of people who vote cold will usually leave a reason as to why, well i would
Thanks for the clarification.
