Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Jeff Atwood explained a while ago how "hot" questions are selected in this post.

However, I am wondering how are the "top questions of the week" and "month" calculated? Is it by a slightly modified version of the "hot questions" algorithm, or is it completely different?
