I don't know where it's been dredged up from but I can see it being up there for all eternity as more & more people click on it. It's not even as if they can add to it any more, it's full.

Please get Tech to take it off?

I was just going to post the same thread.

WTF? it was a crap thread in the first place without it trending for bloody days.

MrsBungle Fri 13-May-16 13:39:31

The unmumsy mum blogger has linked to it on Facebook so perhaps lots of people are clicking now.

DoreenLethal Fri 13-May-16 13:39:40

Yes, me three.

Vardyparty Fri 13-May-16 13:42:10

Still lots of new members for MN, so it's all good for them.

Do non member clicks count towards trending threads?

Maryz Fri 13-May-16 13:43:42

And we've had a full "wedding letter" thread there for three days - which obviously couldn't be trending as (a) it was full and (b) there were a gazillion more trendy TAATs about it hmm

Are you yet willing to admit that perhaps, just perhaps, your way of choosing "Trending" is bonkers and go back to Most Fucking Active [grumpy]

I agree - it's awful. Put the coffee shop one on there; that actually made me laugh and feels like the Mumsnet of yore.

Incidentally, how come the discussions of the day over there /^/ are different from the ones on the slider on the homepage?

Trending as a title is shit anyway. Copying is never clever.

steppemum Fri 13-May-16 13:53:53

What's the coffee shop one? Haven't seen that.

My fave thread at the moment is the human skull found in the garden.

MrsHathaway Fri 13-May-16 13:58:08

yy Unmumsy Mum - it's being reshared all over my FB so lots of clicks.

What Maryz said about Trending. It doesn't work. MNHQ has explained what it is without ever once explaining why they think it's a better or even good idea.

NoSpamPam Fri 13-May-16 14:01:46

U deserve it for being so weird lol

NoSpamPam Fri 13-May-16 14:02:19

It's like what I imagine the bedside table to be in a brothel.

WaitrosePigeon Fri 13-May-16 14:02:31

Why is it trending? It was years ago?

elephantpig Fri 13-May-16 14:03:43

I don't like the thought of the masses being on here messing with our systems

Sort of light hearted...

MaisieDotes Fri 13-May-16 14:04:05

Trending should mean the threads getting the most comments, not the most clicks IMO.

PeaceLoveGonk Fri 13-May-16 14:06:06

Delete it from Classics please. It hardly shows MN in a good light.

LatinForTelly Fri 13-May-16 14:07:08

It's on discussions of the day, steppemum - called coffee shop flirting, give it a shot. It made me laugh out loud on a pretty shitty morning. (I haven't posted cos I'm not funny enough.)

EcclefechanTart Fri 13-May-16 14:32:06

Please please please bring back "most active" and the old way of measuring which ones were active...

steppemum Fri 13-May-16 14:32:26

Oh it is very good, thank you.

Please can be delete penis beaker?
Last time it dragged loads of wankers visitors to the site and caused chaos.

lifesalongsong Fri 13-May-16 14:36:34

I was going to start a thread asking the same grin

That type of thread where 100s of posters jump on a not very funny in the first place bandwagon don't show MN is a good light and aren't representative at all of the true nature of the site.

I'd suggest a bit more of a critical view is taken before moving these threads to classics

magimedi Fri 13-May-16 14:46:07

Yet another example of why 'trending' is such a crap idea.

Please, please go back to Most Active, MNHQ.

CiderwithBuda Fri 13-May-16 14:49:16

Was going to say the same. It was crap at the time and is even more crap now.

Trending is bonkers and is why zombie threads get rehashed too.

SugarMiceInTheRain Fri 13-May-16 14:49:28

Couldn't agree more, get it off there, and get rid of 'trending'. Ugh.

Hydroshield Fri 13-May-16 14:52:36

Also agree. Dreadful thread, just get rid of it.

notamummy10 Fri 13-May-16 14:53:40

I saw the thread link come up on Facebook (through the unmumsy's mum page)... So I'm assuming it's because of her readers clicking the link. I read the first post and went 'nope...'

There are far more better MN Classic threads to read than that one!
