Small Fix


I had the same issue with one of the web sites I had developed. Instaed of calling it popular we renamed it to "buzzing".

And we devised a system to score each post. (the total number of hits within a given period) - (The number of days since the post * multipiler) = rating

so the rating would give more importance to latest hits plus the latest posts.

It will require a bit of rework on the database but wouldn't be that hard.

I know twitter uses a simmilar system. Do a bit of research before you dive in though.

Let me know how it goes. Will be more than happy to help if required.
