Wow, I actually hate this.

I think I'm not going to be submitting any deals on HUKD for a long time now. I don't want to sound like a cry baby but, I'm really annoyed at how everytime I submit a deal, it plunges to subzero heats and if someone submits the same thing, 1 week later, It rockets melting temperatures.

A couple of my personal examples;
1. around christmas time, as an employee of next. I submitted a deal about the 'next sale' and by the time the thread died, it was around -100 heat.... then someone submitted another thread about it and it reached +1000 heat... LOL. I don't even know how that can be possible.

2. I submitted a deal about the xbox 360 controller at Zavvi. I got flamed for it being 0.22p cheaper some where else. Exactly 1 week later someone else submitted the same deal and now it's +274 heat... LOL.

no more submitting deals for me. I'm done with it. I'm sorry but if I'm going to submit stuff for no one to appreciate, I might as well keep it to myself.

Don't worry about it. It happens to everyone :)

Just keep posting stuff :)

I once has minus about 700 for some kids ring at argos, and people where posting pics of chavs, and burberry things, and everything, the ring was only about £2 and all.......

Depends if u submit deals for others to know, or to get the recognition!! I do it for the information.. if it becomes hot good... otherwise too badd really!!
#4
You will always get people saying oh I can find it 2p cheaper somewhere.....And if a couple of people vote cold then a lot follow aswell.

But you may have helped a few people, a few lurkers or people who find the deal benificial. Just keep posting and don't let it dishearten you :)

exactly-I post to share information and help others out-I couldnt care less whether it goes hot or cold-If one or two people save some cash from my post my job is done.

I see a lot of threads that get immediate negs followed by heat a few minutes later. There seem to be a lot of assholes on this site who seem to vote down anything - maybe it's for a "laugh" or because they wouldn't want that item for themselves. It would help a lot if the first negative vote on any item had to state a reason.
#13
;-)how do I vote cold for this?

I laugh at most of the threads in deals, some of the comments are hilarious


post some examples in my thread :thumbsup:
#15
dont worry OP it happens to everybody here...
Just keep posting to let people know, dont worry if it gets hor or not as people vote not necessarily based on how good the deal is but for all sorts of reason. It doesnt mean anything to you anyway.

The deal should have been spammed if it was within a week. It is difficult sometimes to know whether a deal is a good deal or not. If you can't find it cheaper and you know its a good deal then post it.

As others have said, you will have helped others even if the heat doesn't reflect it. My hotest deal was over 2k but its definitely not the best deal I posted.

Keep posting and you'll eventually get some success :thumbsup:

Keep posting deals OP. If you feel that people are abusing their voting powers against you then you can report the post.

Woops - making a bit of a mess of the quoting there!!
As Gari says, it's a bit of a lottery but keep posting and never mind what the temp reaches!! The final temperatures don't make a great deal of sense to me but I guess they just reflect the views of those who happen to be on-line to see the deal and decide to vote one way or another. :-D

op the problem with this site in the deals section is there are a lot of people that think they are comedians and are actually pretty sad. what they like are cheap tat or something that is a bit rude... cause they can't seem to be able to google for porn they get their kicks in the deals that involve pics of women in bras.

just add a couple of those pics in your deals and you will be golden

Hahaha lool! I'll keep that in mind (have some rep:thumbsup: )
Next time I post a deal about an xbox 360 controller, I'll put up a picture of a semi-naked asian chick holding the controller... that will get them the "kick" they desire.
#34
I just want to say thank you to the OP for starting this thread and to everyone who made those positive comments in response. I wasn't feeling quite as negative, but I was starting to doubt whether to post stuff or not.

You've all re-inspired me!!! :-D

[Not that I find many deals, but I'll keep trying! :p ]
#35
I dont think the Cold votes put me off something unless they are justified and backed up with sensible comments (cheaper elsewhere, double post etc)

I think if your deals were as good as you say they were then it sounds like THE HERD were just following each other.
#36
When I joined HUKD, a few years ago, the deals on here were super super hot! There were only a few deals posted - but they were damn good.

The problem now is that we have loads of people who can't recognise a good deal when they see one.

Mobile contract for example - stupid people will vote cold as soon as anyone mentions 3! BUT I saw a N97 deal which worked out to be extremely cheap JUST for the handset on it's own. But morons still say it's not a good deal.

The way I see it now is that we have too many members - and the average IQ (or savvy-ness) has dropped quite a bit.
