I click http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/deal_votehot.gif on a deal I like, no movement on the rating

I click http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/deal_votecold.gif on a deal I don't like, no movement on the rating

Does it takes hundreds of http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/deal_votehot.gif or http://www.hotukdeals.com/images/deal_votecold.gif to make a difference to a deal?

ARE YOU RIGHT CLICKING?

Admin

Hi Shambles I'll check your vote power

Maybe the deal was expired?

Thanks Juliet_Bravo. "Vote Power" eh? Technology...

I was left-clicking.

Shambles, you're another one who unfortunately has had their vote blocked without being warned or notified.
I'm really sorry about this.

We do assess peoples' voting activity and there will have been a reason behind your votes being blocked, so it'd be great if you could be constructive when criticising another members' post or cold voting

I'm unblocking now, this update should happen overnight so please let us know if you have any problems.

I'm actually going to leave this thread open- there was one earlier and I've had a few PMs from members in a similar situation.

Thanks Juliet_Bravo for the very fast response.

I don't "vote" often, but used to do so (more negatively than positively) when I saw deals posted with text-only titles as obscure as "England Shirt" or "Cheap CD", which forced me to click-thru the title to get to the details... not something I enjoyed while using 3G while commuting on a Virgin Express on the West Line :). Maybe that's what caused it.

Thanks again for the prompt response

Well I guess the best way to educate members who miss info out of their deal titles is to point out what else they could add Thank them for making the effort in posting in the first place and try and help them pack some more info into their title. Next time they post they'll more than likely remember your tips and incorporate them into their future deals.
Appreciate that's easier said than done when on the move!

Strike, I've just checked & your vote isn't blocked. If you could PM me a link to a deal that you've voted on, then I can check the vote report & see what temp your vote is currently set at, thanks :thumbsup:

I voted a decent deal "up" just now, but it made no difference to the heat.

Ah well, here was/is the deal... hotukdeals.com/ite…-mo

Someone may have voted at the same time, particulalry as it's a new deal and has been posted before. People tend to vote cold as it's a duplicate.


Try it on an old deal that someone won't be looking at at the same time. Also refresh it a minute later to check the affect it's had.

Or listen to Sigma below!

Shambles I've just checked for you. Your block vote has been removed, but your voting 'powers' haven't updated yet after looking at the vote report from the deal link you provided.

I'm going to pass the information onto Admin, but if it's still not updated by tomorrow night (there can be a server refresh delay sometimes), then drop me a PM & I'll follow it up again for you.

Thanks :thumbsup:
