WHY, I think ONLY within the first 10 minutes of a posting justification is fair to ask :?

I do really think if you vote cold you should have to give a reason why its cold

I always give a reason if voting cold. I always look at comments if it's a deal I'm interested in and really appreciate people bothering to say why it's not such a good deal :thumbsup:

Been done time and time again no budge.

Just remove cold voting or give it less. Serves no purpose to have cold voting at the same level as heat. If its cold many people will lower its heat.

its is annoying when peopl vote cold on things that are free though

simple solution

and yes it is annoying - i do post asking why cold vote - not just on my posts - others

as jamespir says - cold voting on a freebie or a comp for no valid reason

take away voting rights of these people - why let them spoil it for rest of us

also puts people off posting

Actually why not make it that you have to leave a comment before any voting (hot or cold) to why it is that way for the voter?

It is disheartening when you've put a really good deal on and it drops to minus 20 in the first 10 minutes, before the genuine members begin to vote sensibly.
It's particularly annoying when your submit is lingering around the 70/80 mark and you know it would have been made hot (and brought to the attention of a bigger audience) is it wasnt for the initial minus voters.
I guess you just have to imagine these minus voters are just sitting in a one room bedsit, surrounded by empty pizza boxes and cat poo, with faded newspaper covering the windows and loads of Magic Trees hanging from the ceiling. It helps me cope. Ha Ha

I agree that it should show who votes cold on deals, although the drawback is that the whole site would probably be over-run with people asking for justification of why such and such got voted cold!

On the deal you mentioned, I'm not sure an old movie on blue ray is such a great deal at £8.99. Ok, it might be the cheapest available, but it doesn't necessarily mean it's good value. On the whole, blue rays have been overpriced since their inception and are rightfully coming down in price, I would say a good price for this would be about £5.99.

I hav asked the same question as indeed many others have but it will not change.
I think the problem is, the cold voters not always voting because they actually believe the deal is not hot but because e.g. they just dislike the product and secondly the expectations of some listers are probably hotter than the deal they have posted, e.g. saving 20p on a packet of cornflakes will not rate very high....

whats the fuss if a deal is voted cold?

If it genuinly is a good deal it will inevtiably be given heat if not then its not as good a deal as the poster first thought. simple.

as for you have to leave a comment, nonsense all that will achieve is people just won't vote and every deal regardless of its actual value will be deemed to be scorching hot making the whole voting concept pointless.

Not always the case with lower price deals. Just experienced this with NFS deal, clearly the cheapest and really good with quidco, but idiots vote it cold.

but its already got heat and if it is such a good deal it will continue to do so. If a deal is good then it will get hot regardles of a few cold votes for whatever reason.

People are not always that great at spotting them, few pages and it doesn't go hot. Meaning more submited. It had two cold votes already since I posted. Which begs to say why? Its clearly £2-3 cheaper without quidco, people tend to review products rather then cold vote based on price.

I agree it shouldn't matter but depending on when the deals posted it does.

Cold voting serves no real purpose.

It's all relative. EVERYTHING gets a few cold votes and if it's a good deal, it will go hot. People should learn to navigate the site better to get the new/hot/discussed deals and decide from that rather than the hot/cold system.

Agree with you, but unfortunately that's never going to happen :w00t:

Cold voting does serve a purpose. It stops deals becoming Hot..... The Cliques will vote each others deals hot, then if it is a rubbish deal it will soon become cold (1 example of the cold vote benefit)

I'm not going to keep debating it, its not going to change anything :thumbsup:

Admins are continually punishing miss users of cold voting. I've seen entire pages go cold on new deals cus children like to click the cold button.

but it has already been made hot so what if a few vote cold thats up to them.

maybe they have had a bad experience with the retailer or don't like using voucher codes all pefectly valid reasons but if it is as good a deal as you say then it will get heat if it isn't then it wont and I wouldn't take it so personally.

As for cold voting serving no purpose, it does it warns people not to waste their cash on something that isn't such a great deal.

I partially agree it might well do, but if they ain't leaving a comment, which I don't really agree with unless it was implemented into a sub title/review of retailer then it really has no purpose when people miss use it. Usual cold voter with leave a comment if nes explaining why its cold.

I'm really on about the cold voting coming from anyomous users who do it for fun, there no point in them.

Should of explained myself better.

but the same could be said for hot voters who just want to give something crap heat for the fun of it, why shouldn't hot voters then be made to leave a comment as well?

It's just people geting their knickers in a twist when they see their deals have been voted cold. It happens and as has been pointed out about a million times on this thread and the other 40 million threads moaning about cold voters if your deal is hot it will be hot if its not then it wont.

Also true.

I have been guilty of moaning in the past (about this matter):oops:

It's not going to change things at the end of the day. Sad things is when a deal is very good for few people and the miss out due to certain things.:)

Starsparkle the real problem is the search engine then :shock:

Think that's why its constantly being updated.

Do your searching for it:thumbsup:



exactly look at my sarah connor deals inwardly I cry at the thought of them being cold but hey I won't start a thread moaning about banning the cold vote button.

It's a good series. I'm sure I've already voted them hot. And the terminator is fit.

unworkable as you'd end up with 10 page threads for every deal with 99% of the comments saying "good deal" or "poor deal"

Seriously, those that keep asking for this just havent thought it through at all :w00t:

I used to leave comments with cold voting but found it just wasnt worth the hassle from the inevitable backlash from the OP. Just got fed up with helping them pick their toys up

:-D :w00t: choked meself laughing at that !

From what I've seen part of the problem is silly members voting something cold like 'Fanta - 2 bottles for a pound' 'I don't like the colour orange - cold!'

Or especially the PS3/360 wars...do grow up, sure we all had speccys or C64s, or ataris and amigas at school, but surely we've grown out of that by now? A cheap deal on a console isn't cold just because the PS3 is 'more expensive than a 360' or cos the '360 is unreliable, get a PS3'.

Come on folks, we're supposed to be on the same side!

I agree with this idea, although it is difficult to implement. I think a lot of people have no clue about a deal yet still vote cold. And that has a dominoe effect; more clueless people see the deal as say -20, and that causes them to vote cold as well.
A recent example would be ]this. Compare it with ]this deal, and you'll see that the former is better, yet its so much colder. It's a shame.
