I tested in test forum to confirm. Any user can bump any thread to achieve the "hot" thread call out. This provides incentive for abuse. Please don't assume it's only all out flooding I am talking about as that would warrant moderation in any situation. Even mild abuse could be encouraged such as a single user making 2 or 3 useless posts in a thread in order to push that "HOT" call out.
I suggest that instead of 10 posts in X time, we have X unique user replies in X time as the requirements to gain "HOT" thread status. By making it so that single users only get 1 vote toward the "HOT" call out it completely reduces the incentive for abuse (in any capacity)
THANKS! This would also standardize what it means to have a "HOT" topic. Because a couple of guys bantering back and fourth is a lot different than 10 people all jumping in during X time. As is, both would get "HOT" topic call out. I think only the latter should.
This would be a good enhancement, I agree.
