oh no... not yet please. :) More-hot-questions in collider => more "hotness lemmings" to break good posts –  gnat Aug 27 '13 at 12:57
@gnat not asking to add all 100 to the collider, just a link to those interested to see all and too lazy to go all the way. –  Shadow Wizard Aug 27 '13 at 13:03
hmm further increasing exposure to "those interested... and too lazy" to me looks like carrying just more risks associated with known issues of Answers quality in hot questions –  gnat Aug 27 '13 at 13:23
@gnat each and his own, IMO increasing exposure is always a good thing. :) –  Shadow Wizard Aug 27 '13 at 13:24
that's probably because you never tried to fight with editing / commenting against garbage answers (and sympathy upvotes to these) that come quicker than you can handle "...there are just too many new voters and commenters to get things going as designed... So comes next and next and next round of garbage answers, bumping the question, bringing mindless upvotes, over and over and over again..." –  gnat Aug 27 '13 at 13:33
"...Hotness algorithm calculates this as genuine popularity, keeps it accordingly high at collider, bringing more visitors that are breaking things further and so on and so on. Note it's not limited to newcomers only, everyone is invited to the party. Community regulars can clearly see that usual quality norms are broken... and that they are free to follow the New Order just like anyone else. That's how fake popularity makes shit stick to the ceiling and helps to keep it there." –  gnat Aug 27 '13 at 13:35
@gnat so we better sweep it under the carpet, hide the shame until it's fixed? May be so, but it doesn't feel right to me. –  Shadow Wizard Aug 27 '13 at 13:35
wel it's probably can be called that way. Other way to describe it is "protect your own users from scale ...human interaction, many to many interaction, doesn't blow up like a balloon..." (A Group Is Its Own Worst Enemy) One can probably say that Meta Filter guys at referred article sweep things under carpet by closing their registration page in times of hotness, other would say they protect their community and interaction from getting blown up by unhealthy scaling. You pick the way you prefer to describe it –  gnat Aug 27 '13 at 13:40
+1 (I was unaware of it until this answer) but I guess you need to update this request for the new layout. –  Martin Smith Dec 10 '13 at 12:31
@MartinSmith that was already suggested here. Better close this one as dupe or "can't reproduce anymore". –  Shadow Wizard Dec 10 '13 at 12:34
@ShaWizDowArd - Thanks. I'll upvote that one too then! –  Martin Smith Dec 10 '13 at 12:35
