What question makes it a "hot" question?
Sometimes I ask questions I may think are relevant to current events and are "hot topic" questions, yet they don't show up as "hot" questions. Is there a special format or requirement to get to that level? Seriously, I look at some and wonder why are they there...with spelling and grammatical errors and mine isn't? Am I looking too deeply into the reasoning?
I'm just going to take a guess and say that what is meant here, by "hot" question may be strictly related to it's degree of "CONTROVERSY." HP staff could probably answer this better.......or, it may be in the Learning Center info....I don't know.
I wonder this also.....sometimes my questions appear hot and sometimes they're not! I just love the answers no matter what or where it appears. Oh and guess what? Your on the HOT list right now!
Apparently you've found the secret, as this is currently at the top of the "Hot" list.
As a ;matter of fact, This is my question too that how to grab hot topic, it is believed that every thing has time, I guess I have been failed to grab it so far,
Personally, I skip over things with a lot of misspellings in it, as it makes it much harder to read. However, the "hot" questions all seem to be ones that get the most people looking at them and responding to them.
Interesting question, last week one of my questions was in a "hot" section, even though there were only one or two answers. I would like to know the same thing, if someone could shed some light on it
I find this to be quite a conundrum regarding what makes it and what doesn't.
Almost without fail my hot questions are related to HubPages and how it works. They often become hot topics before they have any answers.
Not in your case, but in some cases it seems that hot questions were just pulled out of a hat...
Thank you for the comment, but trust me, I have/had no idea it would be a "hot" question. Seriously, I still don't know why.
The hot ones get plenty of traffic and a lot of activity (comments).
Hey! I have a "hot" question now too, with only 1 answer.....hmmmmmmm.
Sometimes hot topics only have two answers. I've wondered what made them 'hot' so early in their lives.
I think it has to do with the amount of views a questions receives? If a question receives a lot of views then it will be assumed by whichever matrix/computer (what is the correct word?) sorts out all the questions, hubs and forums (I'm assuming it's not all done by a person - what a lot of work that would be!) that is a question that a lot of people are interested in. That does not necessarily mean that it will have a lot of responses, after all a lot of people might just click on the question only to read it in its entirety and realise they have nothing to say, or might just click on it only to read the other responses.
