The temperature gauge is used to judge how hot a deal is, and if it should make it to the main front page. Once a deal reaches a certain temperature it is added to the main page of HotUKDeals. Anybody registered can click hot or cold on a particular deal, and this will increase or decrease the temperature.

There are several factors which dictate the impact your vote will have, as explained by Admin below:

The voting rep is based on the temperature of deals you have submitted, the time registered, number of posts, and forum rep. The first is by far the largest and the other factors are there to balance it out and give some voting rep to people who spend their time helping others etc in the forum.


So if you want to have a larger impact voting for deals, your best bet is to start posting your own hot deals, and the hotter they are voted, the more impact you will have when voting.

To vote hot or cold on a deal, use the blue http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/deal_votecold.gif and red http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/deal_votehot.gif arrow buttons to the left of every deal. You can also vote lukewarm by using the grey square in the middle http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/deal_votewarm.gif. If you are a new member, you may see the temperature move by very little, or not at all. If you see it take a big jump, it may mean that someone else was voting on the deal at the same time as you, and you see the cumulative effect when the page refreshes.

If you are cold voting a deal, it is good forum etiquette to post a note in the deal as to why you have done so. There is nothing more confusing to a new member, than to post a deal, only to see it go cold with no explanation. If you found the item cheaper elsewhere, please let us know where and how. If you have no interest or knowledge about the deal at all, please don’t vote cold, just move on.

HUKD has systems in place to detect serial cold voters, and it may lead to a ban from the forums, as it is against the code of conduct.
