And yet the film has never been cheaper. I’ll tell you what’s been spammed. People who just hit cold, because that’s what everyone else has done. Agreed people are getting bored with iTunes movie posts but it’s clear that cold spamming is a problem.

It’s freedom on speech and opinion in action.
People vote cold if they’re unimpressed. Looks like they’re in the majority here

I think that cold votes can be broken down into three types of categories:

1. They don't think it's a deal
2. They don't like the product / item / service and so vote cold irrespective of whether it constitutes a deal
3. Have no interest in the product so just go through the site spamming cold because it's already in minus figures

I'm not naive enough to think that all cold votes are as a result of the first.

I've had plenty of abuse, one particular comment stating that I didn't have the intelligence to group all into one post.

My intelligence was that I wanted to them all individually itemised, mainly because films can get lost in a long list headlined by another film. Specifically, a discussion about a film can be started under it's own deal thread, whereas on the group list threads, people talk at cross-purposes.

I like the fact that a thread can have a discussion dedicated to that one film.

Also, when searching historically for deals, I find it easier to find something that had it's own 'deal', rather than clicking on a deal and hunting within a list.

But, as my way of doing things was different to the majority, of course that meant I had to be abused, insulted and pilloried. And called a 'doofus'.

Not fussed about the cold or hot votes, the actual point of this site is to let other people know about bargains. Hoping people managed to find films they wanted off the back of it.

I'm wondering if there's any point in the 'minus' vote option anyway? I have never voted cold on a deal, if I don't like it I ignore it, but I always vote hot if I have purchased because of a deal. I always refrain from the minus option because I feel a bit sorry for the poster who's gone to the effort of posting a deal. Feels like I'd be kicking them in the face needlessly!

You only need to know if a deal is hot, so it's either voted hot with a plus symbol, if it isn't voted hot at all then it will stay at zero.

I think once a deal goes into the minuses, it's a game to keep it going further south as possible, it's infectious.

Just have an option to vote hot, just have a plus symbol maybe? Food for thought...

But maybe naive enough to think all hot votes are for true deals. Plenty of deals get heat when the deal is non-existant and people simply like the brand for example.

but go ahead and make up a little set or rules to govern how you think people should vote. You can then live by those rules, no one else will.

People can vote however they wish.

As to the OP’s comment directly above. The OP shouldn’t get abuse or rudeness, that’s unacceptable.

It’s fine to remain civil and vote strength one way bot another. But the abuse is not acceptable.

whilst I don’t like multiple deals from the save “deal event”, I think people should at least respect the time it takes to make the extra posts. There is effort there that deserves respect, even if the volume is OTT.

I advise you toreport those rude comments

I think they're in a minority, pretty sure if I posted something from Nike, Xbox or Nvidia that wasn't a deal it wouldn't get any where near the same heat as if it was a genuine deal. There have been plenty of examples I've seen where people have said they think a film was poor and stated they're voting cold. Of course people can vote how they want, but it's the way many vote that negates the quality of the deals and the heat they receive. If the site's going to award a badge for the amount of deals you vote on it's pretty obvious that people will just spam multiple listings without even considering them on a case by case basis. Logic says that if a 2019 movie in UHD, with Dolby Vision and Atmos reduced to the cheapest price it's been, consistently gets colder and colder, without rising in heat, then it shows that the system doesn't work as well it's intended to do.

I think the system works okay. People like what they like and it’s simple.
i think it just may not work the way you want it to.
lego “deals” for things that arnt even reduced seem to often get heat.

i think you have to accept that voting of heat is in part due to the presentation, frequent and subject of the deal. It’s not always about price. That’s how people seem to vote.

also if voters use their voting to discourage multiple posts (whe a single one with a list might do) as a tactic, then that’s ok as well. They need some way to voice that view

The way I like a deal to work is clearly the way HUKD intended the site to work, that is a deal is voted hot or cold based on whether it's a deal or not. If something is the cheapest it's been and it's a clear decent saving, then it's a deal and warrants heat. Granted I've seen posts for Lego where a new release gets posted and there's no deal, just straight RRP. That kind of listing clearly offers no deal and should be moved to a different section.

Cold voting as a way to discourage multiple posts, is most definitely not how the site was intended to be used. Surely a better solution would be to leave a comment suggesting grouping deals together. I do now accept that the way that people like you think and vote is part of the process now and one reason why I'll probably post less deals. The site was intended as a place for people to share deals and vouchers, so technically it should be all about the 'price' and the premise of saving people money on purchases.
I have in the past seen loads of examples where someone has posted multiple similar deals in a row, and just scrolled past and ignored it - I never felt compelled to vote cold and angrily insult the poster.

The way I access the site is by scrolling through the deals as and when - I can only assume that people have their notifications set to alert them every time a new deal is posted? Hence why they were so riled? If so, I didn't realise that, obviously. Just assumed everyone else scrolled through and clicked on anything they are interested in, and simply bypassed anything they're not.

Same here. I thought people voted on each deal on its individual merits.

Lots of people vote cold, just because it's not something they like, or don't want. They don't look at the price.
