I love the thumbnails on the home page that show some of the hot new topics.  Unfortunately, it seems that a lot of the time they don't really match up with the current hot topics.  How are those pics chosen?  I know it's the first pic in that particular topic, but there are a few pics that are showing now (in the top 3 premiem spost) that feature topics that aren't anywhere on the 'hottest new topics' list anymore.

Just curious of how it all works.

(sorry if this had been addressed before, I couldn't find a similar topic and I really did try a little searching first).

Thanks!

I don't think they will always match up because the 3 thumbnails on the front page are Hot Projects while the Hot Topics are, well, topics.

I'll see if Leah will respond here to exactly what specifics the two databases use, though.

Oh, that makes sense.  I s'pose it does make sense to post actual projects that can be duplicated or inspiration taken from (as opposed to swap galleries or something).  Thanks!

I know that the business boards aren't included on the main page thumbnails/Hot Projects.  I don't recall if they are included in Hot New Topics or not.

That too makes sense.  Can I be as smart as you if/when I grow up? Wink
