I noticed today that many of our threads are "hot", at least in the hunting and fishing forums.
To make that feature as useful as possible, I changed the parameters so that the definition of hot is now 500 views / 25 posts. Previously it was 250 / 25. My thinking is that this will mean fewer threads are truly "hot".
This is a hot thread: . This is a thread that is not hot: .
By the way, it is possible to sort threads in the forums by number of views (or replies or most recent post or rating or thread/starter). Just click the link at the top of the table in the dark blue bar.
