Hi Everyone,

It all started a year back, and we were working on How we can evolve
Ref – https://www.desidime.com/forums/hot-deals-onlin...

Today we have taken a big step, and now we moving out of earning only 20 Dimes per front page deal.
We have been working on so many permutations and combinations, as how the structure should be and how to develop a better environment for Dimers where we can highlight good deals and still award dimers who are putting in their effort in finding best deals.
Over the time we have introduced hotness for deals by setting different parameters in the algorithm, and that has displayed that community is mature enough to decide which deal is good and which isn’t.

What has changed

The way Dimers will earn Dimes.
From Today onwards admin team will not promote any FPD and now system will decide what needs to be highlighted on homepage, depending upon the deal hotness and its activity. Now that we are removing 20 Dimes per front page deal. System is going to evaluate deals on the basis on hotness and many other algorithm. And accordingly Dimes will be allocated. It means a good deal can earn upto 200 Dimes and a not so good deal may give you less than 1 Dime also.

Why Dimes are Not reflecting in my account

From Today onwards for every deals shared today, dimers will earn dime after 5 days for same deal.

Today its 27th Nov 2018. Dimes for all deals shared today will reflect in your account 2nd Dec 2018.
Why are we doing this, is because every deal which is shared takes some time to earn hotness. And after closely evaluating deals and its hotness over last few months, we have decided that 5 days is enough for a deal and its life cycle.
So During that time frame, whatever hotness a deal earns and depending upon other factors, Dimes for all such deals will be accumulated and it will be credited by system on 5th Day.
So Please note from 27th – 2nd Dec there wont be increase in Dimes(via Deals) in anyones account. And it will start reflecting post 2nd Dec.

Where are My Past FPD’s Count

Dont worry, we have all that data saved and it will continue to display under your profile page.

New badges

We have also introduced new activity badges. Depending upon Number of deals with hotness, you will be able to earn those badges.
Starting from Beacon—Flame—Blaze and goes upto inferno—supernova.

We will keep you posted on other new features which we will be introducing.

Guys please create a Dime distribution Log to check how much dimes we are getting according to hotness level for each specific Deals like Karma Log.

Got it, so for every 5 days you calculate the hotness we get for all the deals and credit dimes. Am i right ?

Sir please consider doing away with the Hotness metre shite for FPD deals! It’s beyond confusing! Why not simply show one thumb-up label (or something like that) for one person’s vote up? Like if 120 people vote up a deal, it should simply show 120 thumb-up, like it is on YouTube and like million other places. It is much more simple and understandable for idiots like me.

It’s a very nice gesture however that Dimers can now earn up to 200 dimes for their deals, very kind. I’m sure they are happy and will appreciate this new method. Always wanted to post some deals, but even after 2.5 years I don’t understand how to gather these deals before others, and from where!

We had the same system earlier, where we just use to show number of votes. And if anyone has group, they can easily manipulate the system. But now its hotness, cause its not only reflecting votes but it includes many other factors as well. So its difficult to play around with that.

@anthrax.ut can you share link where the factors are mentioned. Because here the major factor to increase hotness is DIMERS and when you display name of OP then it is definitely bound to get more/less hotness based on name of OP.

creating log is currently difficult, as the system will keep on evolving. As the logic of dime allocation which will happen today, that logic may not be same tomorrow. And since its based on algorithm it will be difficult for us to explain why n why not dimes are assigned for particular deal (assuming dimers will come back with such queries later). So overall everyone should focus on sharing good deals and voting such deals. If its not worth or invalid then we should vote it down accordingly. Cause it all now depends on Dimers opinion and judgement of deals.
