Don't see any increase in activity compared to any other Tuesday night to be honest.

If a deal isn't a deal then it doesn't get voted hot. The posters have no control over that.

Got an example op?

JB is still a mod............check profile.

I think she is being promoted from Mod to God status so developer is sorting out a new title. :D

I've not had mod status for about a year :) I don't subscribe to labels...

Nah I'm a different usergroup :) That's all

Mallinersha those are just members, some of them fairly new members, posting deals. I don't think there's an ulterior motive and I'm fairly sure if I'd gone to the effort of posting a deal only for one member to highlight it as a "non-deal" I might be a bit miffed.

tbh, OP is spot on. Some people are serial posters of complete junk deals who post anything they come across.

e.g.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/tubtanic-bath-plug-3-49-play-com/889850

its getting tricky to spot any truly great deals on here these days what with store specific one off deals consistently making the top 5 of the day list

Vote them cold and leave a reason why. I think the voting system works ok but it would be better if more senior members would vote cold on bad deals and post the reason - also posting hot on good deals that have been missed/ignored with a reason and support. That kind of leadership would help guide other members on voting accurately.

I think if I felt those were flagged accurately (personally I think a lot of poor deals don't get as cold as they should) then we could do something like you can't post a new deal for x days or your deal gets moderated before appearing.

ps - You can vote cold while still being supportive and constructive. It doesn't have to be a nasty experience for a member.

Maybe have a "warning, crap deal poster" button to click on in the OP. Though to be fair, maybe he was just telling us a little something about his anusol and condom needs!

On a side note, why is it that telling another member that they "hope you die choking on your own vomit" is not deemed to break the forum code of conduct, yet someone answers a question in FS gets a suspension for bumping!

Thats some seriously ****** up moderating tbh.

you seen the temperature of that anusol deal? Makes a mockery of heat really and just encourages more muppets to post 'funny' deals

totally agree...too many 'funny' deals.....mixed up with the tesco value deals (which arent deals ...but what the price is) is making deals a real crap hole!
