I was just wondering what the criteria defining a "hot thread" is. The idea, I would think, is to point out which threads are the most active or most replied to or most viewed, or some combination of the above. Problem is, a vast majority of the threads here in U-Hall are "hot threads," thus sort of defeating the purpose in pointing them out in the first place. Just makes for an actively exploding left-hand column. Perhaps a tweak in what defines "hot thread" is in order?
