    Hi,

    I was curious to know how a thread is marked a "HOT THREAD"? does it depend on the no of replies or something else?

    P.S: I didnt find any FAQ on this or maybe i missed so was just curious to know......

    Hello Sweety17
    Where have you come across this hot thread marking in this site even I am eager to know about it:)
    Yes we do have popular threads and it depends on the number of replies in that thread.

    Hi,

    toady i came across the thread of one of our IL in hobbies section, i don't know how many ILs practice this method. There are multiple threads opened by many IL under same forum which can be avoided if they open one single thread for posting their work and another one just for replies / queries pertaining to their works. I suggest it would be nice if an email is sent to all ILs to follow the same thus reducing the work of moderators and confusion to others. Though it is already mentioned at the time of introduction to a new IL, it is better to remind all ILs on the above.

    When you will see regularly posting in any particular thread then it becomes hot/ popular thread.
