weird...

Although products can't be voted for after they're expired, I'm not sure if the "go to deal" click throughs can still affect the temperature.
Will see if I can find out when Admin/Rayman are online as I'm not 100% sure :)

Actually they can be...


Say you look at a deal and while your reading someone expires, yet you havent refreshed the page so you dont see the EXPIRED bit you can still vote and it will affect it

I just clicked 'go to deal' then refreshed, no heat change. Unless theres a rule that says 10 clicks from different users adds more heat.

currently at 162, if others click on the link above then 'go to deal' we can see if it changes.

Is that proven or just a theory? I'd think theres a rule in the code that processes a heat-click which checks for an expired or spammed status before it actually increments the heat, so its not all dependant on what you see on screen - doing it all client side without any secondary check on the server side would be a very silly idea.

The deal in question went up from 147 to 162 since last night even though it was expired, which proves that something is happening.

I don't doubt you at all mate, just suggesting we try clicking 'go to deal' to see if thats what it is :)

well works for me...tend to use multiple tabs and forget them so have left stuff open before, refreshed on EXPIRED tab for up to date number, flicked to other tab and voted, then refreshed on EXPIRED tab and number changes

This way I can understand if people have left link open and voted later but when its a few days later I dont get it

Well that proves theres no server-side check to make sure a deal hasn't expired, thats not a good idea at all. I'm not surprised theres odd things happening!

same happening with that wii fit deal from littlewoods

From what I have seen, a deal seems to go up a couple of degrees for every few posts there are in said thread. I think that's why some go up massively when there are a lot of posts in the thread even after expiration.

Now, 172. :)
#20
As stated by Juliet Bravo, the number of click-throughs (or views?) and additional posts add heat to the deal...
#21
surely thats a bug then, if the deals expired its no longer hot!
