 Hi @vapvarun

 Thanks for sharing your idea. I think it's worth considering, but the
 popularity algorithm (and how we'd store that in the database) I think
 would need to be more complex than merely bumping a timestamp when
 something's updated, which brings its own scaling problems. Otherwise, I
 think you'd see a lot of spamming going on because it would be so trivial
 to fill up a screen with own spam content.

 I had found a good and simple algorithm online a couple years ago that I
 thought might be good for something like this. I'll try to find it again.
