Only if warm and hot voters have to justify their vote also.

Leave it as it is, the genuine good deals are highlighted with the current system.

I think people are too sensative when their deals voted cold, it's just peoples perception of a good deal.

There are enough people voting for the averages to be accurate innit

While i see Hot Deals getting a stupid amount of Cold votes, i see plenty Cold Deals getting Hot Votes as well.

So the only way it would work is for a reason to be given for every vote.
This might have a bad effect on the site, site people wont want to write every time they vote.

Sadly have to leave it as it is.
And try to use your own common sense in deciding if its good or not, since tbh you cant trust the votes on this often.

I think the only cold votes are ok is when the company selling the item isnt right - out of stock or price is cheaper elsewhere but i dont think we should have to leave a comment - it would ruin this site

My deals get voted cold just because they are my deals but hey you can do what you want

Count me half-in.

It's pointless for people to vote cold without saying why. It's unconstructive, unhelpful, and it upsets the poster, which makes people less willing to post deals again. A Bad Thing.

But on the other hand, if everyone voting cold had to explain why, we'd have threads that go on for pages with more or less the same post repeated over and over. This wouldn't be much good. Alternatively, it would mean that cold deals lose all their cold votes because people won't be bothered to explain why they think it's cold, so the difference between a good and a bad deal will be less pronounced. That won't be good either.

Personally, I think the best option would be to set a rule in place that if you want to vote cold, to only do so if you plan to or if someone else has said why it's a cold deal.

I think the issue is, folks post what they deem to be a good deal for the other members - this takes a little time and effort. Only for others to click cold because it's been posted previously, they never spotted it, they are not part of the "it" club or they cannot get the deal because they live in certain parts of the country. (Am still annoyed about my Guinness deal :)

Some people just vote cold to be annoying, several times I gone to a deal with no replies to find it's already -7 when it clearly is a good but maybe niche deal. I would be in favour of a little window coming up tell them to think twice, they press OK and it's done, too much hassle for someone doing it to be annoying (innit) and not so much as to put people off voting cold for a truely cold offer
