To answer your question, yes...usually. Exception to this would be if something is manually picked there because its important information which might get missed as the thread comments come in. Especially when we didn't have clickable links in description for things like long lists. That doesn't happen too often now.

While there isn't any set criteria, I think Top Comments should contain information which furthers a deal or provides additional benefit for all members. I'm not sure those 3 top comments in that thread was really doing much apart from just a differing of opinions and in turn taking the thread off topic. So for now they've all been unpinned as a top comment.

But what you think should be in a top comment doesn't come into it, that is what the "likes" are for.

So top comments are cherry picked too, thats crazy. Ah well, we know this now.

Thanks for clarifying oO

Off-topic comments leading to bickering shouldn't be a top comment and I've not said we'd cherry pick.

If you're not happy and believe all 3 comments should be returned please drop the team a message - http://www.hotukdeals.com/contact

Thanks.

EDIT - on reflection for this particular thread theres no issue with those 3 comments so they've been reinstated. Ta.
