Hi, I've checked two deals you've recently voted on and you appear to be on the max member vote currently so it's more likely a refresh issue as it can take a short time for the vote to actually update (it's about a 30 second cache update) and you may also have other members casting an opposing vote at the same time with a cold vote cancelling a hot. Any further problems though drop me a PM.

Thanks so much, as long as I know my vote is registering as otherwise there didn't seem much point!

By max member vote do you mean my votes cast the most heat/cold as it's possible to do?

Yes, a members vote increases as they contribute to the forums so a new member with no posts will have a low deal vote initially and a member who has posted and voted on other deals will have a higher vote, and you are currently on the highest member vote

Re: Timing issues

I find that after voting, after seeing the temperature change accordingly, if I refresh the same individual thread twice (using [F5] in my web browser) by the time the third view of the page is shown the temperature has changed according to my vote.

The first refresh (second view of the page) redisplays the original temperature (prior to my vote).

If you wait for a full minute after voting to hit the refresh button, you are guaranteed to see your temperature change. Unless something goes very, very wrong.

In that time, though, many others may have voted & you will not be able to tell if your own vote has "registered" (other than the voting arrows/neutral square being disabled for further clicking).

Hmmm... just thinking aloud...

Could you make a change to the "Forum Summary" view ("Text Only" is the only view I use, but this will also be possible in the "Full Details" display) so that there is some indication about how an individual member voted against that thread?

In the "old skin" there is (screen real estate) room between the temperature bar (in the "Text Only" view) & the start of the "Thread / Thread Starter" text for each thread.

This may also help some members that struggle to recall which threads they have visited; for example, [ hotukdeals.com/fee…878 ].
