So I was thinking about what makes a topic hot? Is it the amount of people who post in it? Is it the time it take people to answer the post?
Why can't this be dynamic in the sense of a topic is hot if a lot of people answer a post in a short amount of time? Just a coding question that's all.
If it gets lots of replies its considered hot
Is it possible to make some code that queries the amount of replies over time and determine if it's hot or not?
Say a post A has no replies on it for 5 days, then it's not hot, but say a post B gets 20 replies one day then it's hot. And then again if post B get no replies after the 20 posts, then it wouldn't be hot any more.
Is this even possible?
tbh, I like it the way it is. It's simple like this, no complicated rules to boggle the mind. I'm back to school in February, and the prospect of more thinking doesn't sound particularly attractive.
Also, along with that time period vs. post check would slow the forum down more than it is right now. After all the hard work they've done to keep it moving quickly... It would be nice, but it's not necessary.

So wait, topics don't become hot simply because I post there? Dangit! The system makes no sense!
I fore see this being a hot topic.
usually interesting stuff becomes a hot topic.
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
But as stated before, if the code were to do this, it may make LO run slower. On the other hand, I only seem to access LO in the daytime EST and not Night, it keeps having trouble, might be an isolated incident.
IIRC a topic is hot after 3 pages with posts!
