I remember the days when my post would reach about 200'C and get onto the 'Hottest Today' list with the hottest ever just reaching to 1000'C mark.

Looking at it recently you have to get up to about 400'C before it gets onto the list, a lot of deals are getting very hot.

I wonder if this means the members have multiplied unless there are better deals around than ever before.

Just looked at the hottest being over 3000'C, now thats piping hot. Keep the good deal going guys.

Dont know if its me or not but it does seem like deals are getting a lot hotter than ever.

It'll be because there are more people on the site than ever before.

and the fact that more folk have more rep now than ever... so when they hit hot they go up more than 1 degrees - some people even go up 9 degrees when the heat something up.

I think that deals do get too hot. It used to be that anything over 50 was almost a must buy bargain. Now it needs to be in the hundreds to be worth considering (unless its a very new post). One other issue with the number of members is that deals sell out very quickly even if only a small % buy for resale. Misprices are affected too - when I first joined I had five or six in the first couple of months, and they were honoured because of the low volume of orders.
Now it's not worth bothering - the goodwill the company gets from honouring it is far less than the cost when there are hundreds/ thousands of orders involved. The only ones that come off are the very first few in who get dispatch prior to it being noticed (for example prime members with amazon misprices).
