Hi dancrawley, I'll look into it later today in case there's a bug. I don't think anything changed last night that would have affected your temp

Cheers Admin - thanks for that - I'm feeling kind of powerless here at the moment ........

Working fine for me, maybe somebody voted the other way at the same time?

(just a possibility as I noticed that sort of thing on the old site as well)

out of interest....do people have different powers then?

dependant on post count or something? never realised that.

Yeah, not sure on the exact formula but I think it's based on Deal Heat (for posted deals) and Rep.

No - the same thing is happening on every deal I vote on - must be 20 or 30 yesterday and today - it is really annoying, as I like having my two pence worth when it comes to voting on deals...........I worked hard for these green boxes you know! ;-)

I very much doubt that lol.

dunno
I very much doubt that lol.


Which doesn't change the fact that it did.
#11
I'm glad it's not just me then - mine was 12 degrees until the site 'upgrade' - then it went a bit higher, and now it is down to 1 - boohoo! :cry: can someone please get it back for me! admin? anyone? ................:?

This is how it worked on the old site, would assume it's the same:

The temperature gage 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 gage. There are several factors on how much 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.

This problem is still present today - any news on a fix admin, or have I just been defrocked? Thanks, Dan

Same as me - though mine hasn't gone down to 1 degree - and still at 18!!!
#15
I have the same problem as well :thinking:

hmmm not sure dancrawley - it's still happening? Maybe an old deal you posted lost the temp or something and thus when your voting power was calculated it dropped. I'll have to dig a bit more.


teetyweety I know why your voting power went down and hopefully so do you....if you don't send me a pm.

Thanks for checking back Admin - it is such an extreme drop in voting power, surely it can't be down to one deal - I was voting at 12 degrees until the site change over - now I might as well be a newbie with my piddly little 1 degree voting power :whistling: I appreciate you looking into it though - thanks........
#18
I was posting 10+ up until recently and then all of a sudden its down to 1 or sometimes it does not make any difference.

I feel your pain man - it is really annoying! :x
#20
This seems to be a random problem.

My mate rawhead who sits the other side of the office to me has not lost any of his voting power , his is still at 12+
#21
Its working! :w00t:

Cheers to whoever sorted it out.........:santa:
#22
my vote used to adjust by 10 but since change its been 16. and it hasnt changed again since, not even over the past few days
#23
i get 12% per hot vote
#24
Woah! I think i'll give up voting on deals until I've managed to find a few for myself - my fraction of a percent counts for diddly squat :-( (but at least posted comments all count equally) lol.
#25
I was able to effect the vote by 18 degrees a couple of days ago... Today it's 9 degrees?

#27

#28
Mine was 12 - then went to 18 (ish) with the site change - then down to 1 (!) - now up to 9 degrees...........which is better than 1 anyway.............:whistling:
#29
