I'm curious about the list of "Hot Posts" shown in the right hand panel of Codidact pages. So here are some completely unimportant questions that I'm intrigued to know more about:
- How is the list of Hot Posts produced?
- Is there a scoring mechanism to determine how hot a post is?
- Are the displayed Hot Posts the highest scoring, or a random selection from some of the highest scoring? (I notice they don't change on page refresh.)
- Is the approach adjustable per Codidact community, or per post category?
- Is any of this info already available somewhere I've missed? (I tried a quick search of Codidact Meta and Help.)
