I tried to search for but could not find any overview of the algorithm to display
/top/xxx topics , e.g.
At least, what variables are considered and with what weight? What is more important and what is less? I need this to explain to my users which will participate in “top topic of the month” contest.
It would seem natural to me for this score value to come back in the top topics API response objects. Is that present somewhere that I’m overlooking?
Because I am accumulating top posts over time, I want to have a way to compare how “top” they are relative to one another. Therefore, I’m using this formula as a starting point.
