How does the heat system on hukd work?

Just a general question as I can't find the info

How does the heat system on hukd work?
If I was to press the red heat arrow I'd increase the deals heat by Y heat say
If someone else was to do the sale they'd increase it by say 1 or 2 or 3 etc ...
Also if you vote a deal cold would that be at the same level?
And how do you increase the amount of heat you can give to a deal? As some users seem to be able to give a lot of heat to a deal and others just a little
Is it that noobs would get 1 heat add/minus, a pilot light would get 2???

Just curious would like to know, thanks

It heats up by about 7 degrees when we press red

EDIT - yes because i have been here since about 1923 or so it seems my heat is worth more than a newbie & decreases the same when going blue

i think you get more heat by how active a member you are.

People who have more posts/deals/rep/likes get more heat.

if you're a virgin it goes up more than 4
normal people 4 or less

goes on number of comments i think

i just tried it and hit random cold and hot to check

but it went up +12 +11 +4 +3 +4 +1 +4

when you go cold it went -10 -10 -12 -4 -3 -2

I believe the amount it goes up is the amount of heat your own deals have generated (I might be wrong but I think i'm right).

Not a lot of people realise you can press the grey bit between the red and blue bits and it will 'luke-warm' the deal and increase it by 1 degree.

Depends if you update at the same time as someone else. Once updated it will update so if two people press it at the same time it will go up the same amount. If you want to test it find an old deal unlikely to have someone else putting heat on.

So mine increasing it by 8, is that then related to the deals I've had on hukd, the length of time I've been a member ...

From the comments above seems to be based upon any number of things does, wonder how long it'll be before I get to the 8.5 level as dcx_badass?

I used to be 8 but went down to 7, must be a crap deal that I posted. Cant say I've ever seen a deal here ending with a .5 though.

Because it doesn't show it, that's why sometimes when I vote it goes up 9 … Because it doesn't show it, that's why sometimes when I vote it goes up 9 sometimes 8, depends who else has voted to supplement my 8.5.



So I could be 7.5 thinking I'm 8 then as I've noticed on some deals only goes up by 7

Also has anyone got more than the 8.5 ie mods or editors for example?

I give a nice 6 when I push it woohoo lol

I have 8. That means i am awesome.
