Front page features: 'trending' AND'most liked' ?!

I already notice in the past that 'trending' and 'most liked' often share some blogs.

Today I noticed, it's all 3 of them: https://blogs.sap.com/2019/05/03/clean-abap/comment-page-1/#comment-500763

Praise where praise is due, but I think we don't need that kind of double-feature, do we?
-> I'd rather see the next 3 runners up.

May I propose this simple solution: When a blog is in 'most liked', it's ignored for trending.

    Hi Joachim,

    you're right, it's kind of a double-feature. I'll forward your observation and see what can be done.

    Thanks!

    Today is the first day I notice a difference again:

    By The way: what's the metric for trending?! Something like "new likes, follows and comments in the last X days" I guess?!

      Hi Joachim,

      Trending in blog posts includes the likes, but also the number of comments.

      Best regards

    I know I wished for such dynamic stuff, but as of now, it is quite boring;

    1. Still/Again the same blogs in both categories

    2. they are quite old... ("Online Track in May 2020" )?

    Mynyna Chau , could you maybe also introduce some time of "make room"-logic for both categories?

    Like, if was featured for 4 Weeks, it's taken out of the contest?! (or internal counters are reset) -> So other blogs have a chance of fame and user can discover other much liked + trending blogs?!

    thanks!

      Hi Joachim,

      I hear you and have asked my colleagues to look into it again. We'll get back to you on this.

      If they continue to show similar results after a change in logic, maybe one of them should be removed...

      Best regards

        Hey Mynyna,

        > I hear you and have asked my colleagues to look into it again. We'll get back to you on this.

        Thank you!

        > maybe one of them should be removed...

        Oh, that would be very sad! Really, I'd rather have them be mutually exclusive, to avoid the double feature. As I initially proposed: "When a blog is in 'most liked', it's ignored for trending."

    Certainly not. Science fiction double-features only.
