Hot/Cold Voting Issue

Basically.....it stinks!
last week I posted a deal for £10 off a £30 spend at Kitbag on England Rugby and Football shirts. After 3 days it was -25degrees!???
a few days later someone posted a deal on a small portable welder (a third off it i think) and it shot up to 82 degrees???
I thought England kit would have been more popular than a welder? how mistaken was I. lol
The voting system needs changing because as we know you can vote cold without giving a reason. It may be that you've just been denied a bit of 'hows your father' from the missus and you're a bit miffed....so...I know....I'll vote that deal cold!!
you may think I'm being a bit cynical here but I'm sure that's how some people make their judgements on here.
It needs changing so you must give a valid reason as to why you've just voted something cold.

I stopped after that.

I dont think it needs changing, i think people that go around voting cold for no reason need to be banned. As some deals will be posted and they will reach -35 degrees, then after a few hours be over 100 degrees. So there is obviously people going around voting cold for no reason at all.

Although some people vote cold on the merchants actions, for example: littlewoods. Many people have posted deals for littlewoods and they have been voted cold because of littlewoods customer service.

Anyway, lets not get into littlewoods.

:roll:

I only vote cold on an item if I can add a link to it cheaper. If it has no interest to me I don't vote as why should I. (eg welder, I know nothing about them or have a need for one so I keep my nose out!):thumbsup:

Never get chance to vote cold or say bad about littlewoods as 1 min after its posted about 10 people have already beat me to it!:giggle:

I vote this thread cold because the OP should've done a search before starting another thread on the same topic.

I believe most people would have been voting hot because they either a) thought it was a whole welder (it was just an attachment) or b)thought a welder should be hot.

I took your stance and didn't vote

unfortunately I was a little bit miffed with the hot/cold thing (and was at work) when I posted.:oops:

also, the issue of Littlewoods etc, you still shouldn't vote cold just because you've had a problem with customer service. You aren't giving the poster credit for their post. It might be a bloody good bargain, and you've just limited the amount of people who are going to view it by voting it cold. Just don't read the post if you don't like the company. Let other people make their own judgement. You are moderating for them. SOme people just go to the deals page not the forum, so may not get to see the post because it's cold.
