We’ve been working on a “top” feature in Discourse off and on for a few months. It’s a top level nav tab, here
We’ve gotten it to a good state finally, and I would like to get your feedback on the /top page.
- Does this make sense?
- Do you agree that what it is showing is the “top”? For each date range?
- How could we improve this?
Note that /top picks the “best” time interval available, if there’s tons of activity it may choose Day or Week, if your site is low activity it’ll choose Month or Year.
Also, new and long-absent returning users will automatically get the /top page as their default homepage on their first visit. Logic being
“Hey new guy/gal, here’s the best stuff in this community so you can easily see what this community is all about.”
… versus arbitrarily dropping them in a raw stream of the latest topics.
Thanks for looking. Here’s a for you.
