Sorry if this is a completely stupid question that everyone knows the answer to, but I'm a bit confused by something.
I realise that when you post deals and get reputation, your "heat" power increases. When I first found this site, I could only heat (or cool) items by 1 degree at a time, but a few deals later and I could do it by 9 degrees.
However, recently this seems to have dropped back down to just 1 degree and I'm not sure why. Have I done something wrong or does rep "expire" after so long or whatever?
I could have swore that earlier today, after posting a couple of decent deals, I was able to adjust deals by 4 degrees (might have been a couple of flukes, though), but it seems to be back down to 1 degree.
Could anyone explain how it's supposed to work and if I should be worried or not?
P.S. Not sure if this is the right forum to ask, please direct me somewhere else if it was a mistake!
P.P.S. Before anyone tells me, I've already read the big FAQ on it, but it didn't really answer my question as to why it seems to go DOWN so suddenly.
