    Doesn't seem to be refreshing? I'm only seeing topics from yesterday.

    I'll look into this but I seem to recall that the Trending Topics isn't like the latest topics you might find on other websites, rather it is a list of threads that are attracting the most comments/pageviews making them relevant to the activity of MilePoint rather than just the "latest". Not sure if I have any thoughts one way or the other on this and likely once we clear our beta process, there may be other options to seeing latest headlines, etc. Thanks for asking because when we started, I wrote a note to ask the tech guys if it was working. There are some things we all will have to get used and learn about, including me.

    As mentioned elsewhere, I'd like to see the counting posts, lounges, etc., excluded from trending topics. They skew the listings. Or, a checkbox to hide them, so it is at user discretion- some people want to see that their fav lounge has something new to savor.

    I'd like to be able to see more than 6 trending topics, and I agree with Gargoyle that it would be great to be able to select or deselect types of topics from the trending topics page/section.

    A lot of great suggestions in this thread.

    Currently, Trending Topics highlights less than day old threads that have the most replies. As soon as a thread's creation time is more than 24 hours past, the thread will disappear from the Trending Topics list. This isn't necessarily how it will always work, depending on feedback and such, but that's how it is working now.

    Hi Mikel,

    I think that trending either does not work at all or completely differently than as you say. Right now, the thread that is on top ([Answered] Can we please have a senior forum?) was started long time ago and last post to it was more than 24 hours ago...

    You're right, as of now it isn't working as it was previously. Some updates were done that have caused the Trending Topics to become, how shall I say, dysfunctional [​IMG]

    I take it the Trending Topics box is still broken? Right now one of the threads listed is

    http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/752s-where-does-ua-get-the-e-space.3354/

    but it's from this morning and has only received two replies since then. So really not much activity compared to a lot of other threads I have been visiting. Maybe change the title of the box to "Random Topics" for now? ;) (j/k)
