What are the criteria by which some questions are chosen to appear among the Hot Questions?
There isn't any type of criteria. The community just creates them and we can pick and choose which questions to answer. Just like the question I just answered for you.
If you get a lot of answers in a short period of time, you're golden.
I always wondered the same thing... sometimes I see questions that jump into the hot category that only have 1 or 2 answers. It might be the topic that also throws it up!
Wow! I see your question at the top of the hot questions, may be because you've mentioned the word hot! just a joke, I agree with Don Dwest, I think it depends of the rate of answering questions. No matter how many answers are there, You just have 3 answers and your question is there hun;)
I've noticed this and something does seem amiss!
If you have a "h" or an "e" on your profile image, this seems to put you higher up the list, no matter how many answers your question has attracted, strange?
At this very moment, a guestion from an "e" member which has only generated 2 awswers stands in third place, above a standard members question which has generated 34 answers.
Rather illogical Mr Spock...

Do you ever answer a question even after the Best Answer has been chosen?I enjoy providing an answer to questions at times but sometimes there are already many answers, and decide not to. Have you ever given an answer to a question with many answers or even though the Best Answer was already picked?

Do you think people are getting less hits because they pick a "Best Answer" too soon?I admit, many times I will pass answering a question that has a best answer chosen because I sometimes assume that the asker does not intend to re-visit their question once they pick. I know, answers are...

Would you delete a question you posed if it had 156 answers and 2, 404 views so far when ...?I need feedback as I had recently posed a question which, apparently, is a "hot" topic question, and I am thrilled so many answered the question and it has so far produced views into the...

How do you feel when someone has chosen the Best Answer to his own question?Before the option of choosing the best answer was introduced, I felt that all answers are important and interesting because the mystery of what author of the question thought made it open for thought. Now, every time...

I think once the "best answer" is chosen a question should automatically be closed. Your thoughts?
