Getting Fed up!

Like most people who post on this forum - I'm a busy person.

I try to post deals that aren't just off a newspaper advert or advertised on telly.

I get a bit annoyed when good manners seem to evade this forum - voting cold when clearly it isn't or not giving rep when it's deserved.

I always ensure anything that someone finds is rewarded with 'thanks' or at least a comment as to why I don't think it is a good deal.

I always give rep or give a comment as to why not - especially with freebies and any help I'm given.

I've noticed a lot of (regulars particulary) getting a 'cold' voting on deals without comment. Could we not have a system where they have to leave a comment if they vote cold?

Really spoils this site - although I don't take it personally - I start to worry that perhaps I'm wasting my time and it could be spent better elsewhere. I understand that not all deals I'll post will be 'hot' but would be nice to know why people don't think they are.

Seems that 'cold' voting is replacing negative rep :whistling:

I agree.

Don't let a 'cold' vote put you off posting deals.

Yes vote cold if you wish BUT PLEASE SAY WHY? and if it's because there's a better deal elsewhere give a link so those who wish to purchase the item will benefit...yes it's really that simple.

I've never voted anything cold, a deal is a deal, people put effort into listing items that is a deal to them in the hope that others can benifit, Not so that others can criticise them, as said above - if you find a better deal for the item , post it,

in the logitech thread I said i hated the item, however i did not vote cold coz the item was a deal regardless of my thoughts on the item.

Ahrrrrrr - rant over, i feel much better - off to have a cup of coffee and a cream filled appled turnover Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Thanks folks - thought it was just me.

It wasn't a particular post I made but more posts that other people had made but had been voted 'very cold' with no comments. In my opinion that is not helpful to anyone.

Steve - don't worry I'll keep trying - just probably won't put as much effort into it the next time.

Thanks for your support guys!

totally agree with you Katrb maybe it would be better if people read the title before leaving cold votes i never criticise other peoples posts, as people make the time and effort to search for all of our benefit, how easy it would be to keep a deal to oneself ! but if we can benefit one and other why not, if you dont like a deal move on to the next

Deals should be voted on for the value of the deal, not for your personal whim. If it's a bad deal please vote cold and state why in the thread so we all know where the better bargain is.

I think it's common sense but that's my view on it! I think most of us understand this and do vote and contribute that way. A good way to remind people is to ask in the thread if there is a cold vote and no comments, something like, "Can the person who voted cold please leave a comment letting us know where the better deal is, it's only common courtesy".

Quite agree! I've never voted cold on anything yet. A deal might not be for something I would like but if it's a good deal I would still vote hot. When people are voting cold to me it is common courtesy to say why they are voting cold but obviously some people do not have the same manners as they majority of members here!

i agree, my first posting took me a while to pluck up the courage todo, and even though in the end it did get voted very hot i had a few idots ( and that mild to what i would like to say) were voting it cold, and it was going into the minus, and some most stupid remarks eg ghastly etc, it amazed me to think that certain people could put such a stupid remark, i didnt take it personaly just trying to do my bit back for all the deals i had received, the item i posted was not something i would buy but defiently a good deal for some.

i have had my say now, but i agree people must leave a reason why voted cold and if know of a better deal then say, as this helps us all out, but will say all in all, a great site and some great people on here. :thumbsup:

[SIZE=2]Me too! I've just had a deal go cold. I was looking for some ipod speakers and found what I think was a canny price and worth sharing with you all as someone might be looking for the same thing, that's the whole point of this site. I just don't get how some people must think, oh well. :shrugs:[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]As the price came from Amazon you'll guess I didn't have to do to much looking, so I'd be more mad if I'd spent hours finding this and sharing it!![/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]guess we just never going to satisfy some people. :)[/SIZE]
