Whats going on with the front page?

Anyone notice something strange with the front page, someone (or something) is making threads from 2006 'hot'.

In the last few minutes the front page has been flooded with deals from 2 years ago!

When you vote any thread hot, if you push it over the threshold, it will go to the front page, no matter how old it is. Someone was just heating old threads, so we just spammed them out of the way for now.
#21
I have noticed this too.

Its just a hunch, but has it got anything to do with this?

But some of them were over 60, so they'd have to have been over 50 already or there must have been 2 people heating old threads.

Also there must have been alot of threads on just below 50 that were easy to find if someone was indeed heating them up.

Has something not been changed on the system which has triggered old threads to be hot when they weren't considered hot before for some reason?

Who is this phantom heater? Name and shame pls/

Must have been more than one person, if it is indeed someone doing it?

Most deals were over 60, they need to be 50 to be classed as hot, max that someone can heat up is 9 so you'd need 2 people to get over 60.

Must have been fairly hard work to find tons of old deals on a temp of around 45.

Yea I was thinking that, maybe a system error, but emma said that it was 'someone' heating them up :thinking:

I can't wait to find out who it was, I think there's a tag team situation going on though.
#27
Can't really tell you who it was. But it looked like just one person, who had maximum vote power.

Go on, you know you want to!!!

Maximum power is 9 isn't it? How come most of the deals I saw were over 60? They'd have to have been over 50 already then. Unless other people are then voting hot but most of the comments were that the deals were rubbish, because they're a year old the deals are cheaper now.

Very naughty, go on, you can tell us emma, have they been banned, did you ask them why they thought it would be funny to heat up old deals?
