How votes work with out of contest deals?

submitted on November 7, 2011 by sandyshore in "Buxr Website / Contests"
I have some questions and I've wondered about it long enough, I've read the wiki and all the information I could find and still don't know the answer. If a deal is more than 24 hours old and is voted on - who earns points? Does the person who posted the deal gain points? Does the person who voted gain points? What is the purpose of leaving deals open to votes past the contest stage of 24 hours?

    Yan/Admin, please correct them if I am wrong

    No one

    Does the person who posted the deal gain points?
    No

    Does the person who voted gain points?
    No

    What is the purpose of leaving deals open to votes past the contest stage of 24 hours?
    Probably to ascertain the actual popularity of the deal. It is a contest but I guess it would help to know if a deal is really that good.

    Well, I'm hoping your answers are correct. I'm guessing all it does is give credits for posting more of your own deals in deal credits.

    Well that would make sense except even deals that have expired and are months or years old can still be voted on.

    All the answers given by orangearrows above are accurate. Neither voter or submitter gain any points after 24 hours elapse from the time the deal leave the moderation queue. The voting stays open just because occasional visitors may want to express their opinion via a vote, and I don't see why we should restrict them (hopefully this will turn them into new members - you have to sign up to be able to vote). At least I don't see anything bad about allowing votes for older deal. Please correct me if I am wrong.

      No, I'm sorry if it came across as something wrong. I just wanted to understand why it was left open after the contest ended. Thanks for clarifying how it works.

    P.S. I added more details to the title so it is easier to spot later
