We introduced a new feature on Our Thoughts. All posts are now assigned a popularity rating, which is located next to the author and date posted information.
Popularity is determined by analysing several elements of a post. For example, it checks to see how many times a post has been viewed, how many comments it has, how many people have linked to it, and so forth.
We also have our ten most popular posts listed in the sidebar. Over time, this will show more accurately how popular a post is than comments or views could alone. As a result, we scrapped the comments and views lists.
