On one of the other forums I used to visit (I won't DEAL in naming other MAC sites), on the main page it showed what the most active posts were. Is there a way to do that here, or can it be added? Its nice to see some of those older posts that are still active without going through the pages.

No, it didn't.

mick e is thinking that what Stavs is referring to is the front page "hot topics" listing.

This was simply what the admins chose to feature. This was most likely a manual editorial chunk. Often the truly hot topics were OT and never made it to the HT list.

Yes, and if they were vanilla enough for the admins, then they could be featured in hot topics. If a thread was popular for being of ACTUAL interest to the forum rank and file, you could forget about it.

FWIW, you can easily guage which topics here are popular by scanning down the posts/views columns.

Mick E is correct! I didnt know it was what they chose...it was kinda cool as I would look at topics I wouldnt glance at by going through the list.

Ahhh, I still remember the first time a post of mine was featured on the Hot Topics list. It was a proud moment..almost like the day my daughter was born. Except that it was nowhere near as great, and I was nowhere near as proud. Come to think of it, it was nothing like the day my daughter was born, but it *was* kind of cool.

I made it once or twice... I'd never have noticed except if I was 'following' the thread, and would wonder why I kept getting emailed responses (from posters I'd never heard of) to my not-particularly-brilliant post of days earlier.

The 'cute' headlines they come up with are painful.
