Why when people vote things cold can they not put a reason??
Obviously people put deals up because they think they are good deals so why cant people have the decency to state a reason its cold.
If there is a better deal/price somewhere else, why not just say so.

No i dont think i am the only one so i dont know why people cant put reasons. Surely it annoys them as wellwhen they think something is a good deal!!

They probably don't put a reason as they don't want to be attacked for having an opinion.

Is this for pirates only or can we all join in.

It annoys me too.


I've just voted this thread hot. :thumbsup:

Its nothing to do with having an opinion. You should only be voting cold if you can find it cheaper elsewhere or if a better deal is available for same price or less.

Agreed :thumbsup:

think most people agree with you -

should have a valid reason - i had a post voted cold got to - 54 or something - after a few days of people seeing what a good offer it was it defrosted !! - bargains will out!!!!!:thumbsup:

BUT the principal thing that we are all here for is a BARGAIN :thumbsup:.

IF it doesn't appeal then don't vote, if you want the product and agree or buy it - great then vote it HOT. If it's the best price about how can it be cold ?? :?

To many people negative voting for no reason (you even see a deliberate -9 within seconds of someone posting a deal!!) AND expiring deals for unknown reasons ???, it must be difficult for the MODS to keep track of this nonsense :?

I think it comes down to maturity, personal reponsibility, I report deliberate expiry / cold votes as it spoils it for the rest who may want to bag that bargain

precisely - dont vote - would never have thought of reporting a post though :thumbsup:

if i am not interested in an item - i dont vote - if i do vote cold i always give my reason - did this last week and got a nasty nasty pm off poster which i did report - shame as its spoils what hot deals is all about

So if in the past i've bought an item, used it and found it a complete waste of money (in my opinion) i'm not allowed to warn others and vote it cold if it gets posted on here? Nice show of community spirit you have there:thumbsup:

Agree totally: That's fair enough, especially if it's a shoddy company or product leave a msg explaining and vote cold to warn others off it :thumbsup:. (maybe not just because YOU made a bad judgement and don't LIKE it though)

Sadly though that's rarely done :?

And the base reason for that is, as i've said, if you dare to vote cold and express and opinion you tend to get slated :lol:

As for Hollys deal, can't see why it was voted cold. Seems good to me. Not voting though as I don't follow the price trends on wii bundles so don't know one way or the other....

Agree, best way to resolve it................stop posting deals :thumbsup:

hotukmisc.com :thinking:

If my deals get voted cold I generally assume people have a reason. I don't much care what it is. It's not like I'm emotionally invested in the deals I post or anything.

The voting public is fickle.

dont much care if something is cold voted with a reason but nice to know why. If too difficult to accept whether the reasons for cold voting might be valid better not to vote. If cold vote is valid better to inform other HDUKers why so they are not drawn into trap.
Not sure always done with best of intentions...

Agree with BigBoy and Holly100
