Why has there been one "Hot" question for so long?!

This question has been on the Hot questions section for a while now. Shouldn't it be something else after this long?

No question must surpass it.

I think it's because it has a lot of views. And a lot especially for a fairly recent question. The "formula" for calculating hotness takes into account:

  • how old the question is
  • how recently it was last updated
  • how many votes it has
  • how many answers it has
  • how many views it has

They each have a different weight, and views is already very low. I lowered it a bit more and the list seems a bit better now.

I see. This is interesting.
