I've noticed that the blogs getting on the TOP tab on codeforces aren't necessarily the most upvoted ones.

I'm sure there exists a more complicated algorithm, but it seems to be based largely on the number of comments that a post has. This means that more controversial, stupid or someone started an argument in the comments posts which get people to comment will rise rapidly to the top.

What does the Codeforces community think about this? How would you change it?

Is the top tab the recent actions? or something else?

but it seems to be based largely on the number of comments that a post has

Actually, the algorithm ranks them based on the most recent comment they get.

Here is my poem:

Now Every Video Existing Really

Gets On Nothing New At

Good Information Videos Eat

Yeet Ourselves Under

Undertale Poker

Now Every Video Existing Really

Gets On Nothing New At

Live Eat Tables

Yeet Ourselves Under

Daring Onyxs Wonderworld Now

Thank you.
