How is "TOP topics" list calculated?


(Anton) #1

I tried to search for but could not find any overview of the algorithm to display /top/xxx topics , e.g. /top/monthly.

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.

Have a look at the top_topic.rb file :wink:
