Should there be a small change to HUKD?

I'm thinking, the amount of people who vote cold and don't explain why is really ridiculous.

What about something like, when you vote cold, a box comes up and asks you to explain why. Doesn't have to be long, just a small sentence of why you voted cold. That way people can actually see what they are doing wrong. Some feedback on why their deal was so bad?

Thoughts?

Not another bloody thread about this. People can do what they like imo if they don't think a deal is hot than they either don't vote or they vote cold. Their entitled to do so oO

why not a box for people who vote hot for a deal that is clearly cold

Why not give a reason though?

Regardless of how stupid it might be like "i don't like the colour" or something sensible like "it's cheaper here".

If you vote cold, I think a small explanation isn't too much to ask.

To make that fair you would need 3 boxes
1 why did you vote hot
2 why did you vote cold
3 why didn't you vote

What do you think the comment boxes are for?!

If a deal is really that good the odd cold voter won't make a difference.

If a deal is getting voted cold, you shouldn't be posting it anyway....

I wouldn't bother hoping for a answer to this, or any other GUI HUKD matter as it goes, might as well bang your head against a wall when it comes to "changes" on this website, even if they're good ideas, how many have really been implemented? hmmm.....

I think a drop down menu would be easier. So after vote you get the below e.g

Cheaper else where (and option to provide link)
Deal never existed (expired )
No stock available
Incorrect details/price (optional suggested edit)
Re-post ( optional link attachment)
Known faults ( optional critisism)
Always at this price
OP is kn*b ( give examples - compulsory, links if possible)

However this would mean it would take ages looking through deals

Also no one would ever vote as it would involve so much effort

Stop whining about the whingers else you'll be banned...

If you turn the hot cold vote into even a 1 question survey then people will be less likely to vote I imagine.

If you can't deal with a great deal going cold due to others' retardity then you really need more spiritual fulfilment/hugs/orgasms in your lives. What do you care if others don't take advantage of a great offer?

Must admit you post what you think is a good deal only to see it go cccccold & when no one says why,you are confused as you still can't find the item cheaper anywhere on the net on in the shops.

I vote cold loads but hardly ever give a reason as the deal poster throws their toys everywhere and starts stalking me for a day lol

some people just post deals without any research just in the hope someone finds it cheaper for them!

Voting is not based on price alone...

However, it took me over 3 years to realise this was the way "everybody else" used the site.

This is the thread where I was educated...
