Its determined by the deals you post as well as your rep points.

Cheers - didn't realise that. But presumably I can't lose heat by posting a deal???

If it's cold you can.

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.

Thanks emma and The Saint. So I have lost heat by posting deals that others found cold, which I posted in good faith? :whistling:

No more posts from me then!! I was under the impression it was forum rep which was the largest criteria (which as you say is gained by helping others). If that has a negliable effect I may stop doing that also......strange place HUKD

PS is 9 degrees the maximum?

It may be because of that, what does it matter though? Some liked it, others didn't. If it was the cheapest(which is the main factor), you should be happy that you posted it.

Forum rep is gained by a lot of things, you don't have to help anyone to get it. Help people because it's a nice thing to do, not because you may get "rewarded" by rep.

I do help people because its a nice thing to do, not for the rep. But getting more heat is an added bonus.

Thanks for the help and clearing things up

Jumped back to 9 degrees (from 3). :roll: Is that because of the rump steak deal I posted?

The majority is based on deals. If your deal avg is dropping because of posting bad deals then your vote influence will drop too.
