"questions with the most links" is not clear to me. The most links to the question from other SE questions? The most external links pointing to the question? –  Aaron Jun 14 '12 at 17:56
    
I'm also curious as to what exactly "questions with the most links" means. Can anyone clarify this? –  Josh Aug 19 '12 at 11:51
    
@Alex "hot: questions with the most views, answers, and votes over the last few days". How may days? –  Geek Jan 12 at 13:15
    
@Geek I don't think a specific time frame is specified (please correct me if I'm wrong). –  Alex Lockwood Jan 12 at 22:07
