thanks, got your point. the only point i'm concerned with is "why should the title have the same weight in visibility as views?"
won't people then chose the topic based on other factors rather than the importance of the content?
or let's say should i answer the question of "how can we reduce food waste?" because of the importance of the problem and number of hungry people who exist around me, or should i reply it to be seen by a community of 100 people who are currently discussing about the problem?
anyway i know my concern is raw and i'm sure there're lots of thought behind the current design. i just asked in order to cook what i had in mind via discussion.
as we tested in our forum, the topic excerpt is not being read that much in the current configuration. and the question is how to bring the balance toward adsorbing people by the topic itself and not the participant information.
