To think that "Trending" should go back to being "Most Active" and actually include the Most Active Threads

Couldn't agree more.

I don't think you are being unreasonable at all.

I much preferred the most active.

I mean, who wants to read about someone cancelling a coffee meeting? and how is this trending?

'Trending' is very counter-intuitive.

Until the explanation RebeccaMumsnet just gave, I hadn't really realised what trending meant (counting viewers not posts).

How fast a thread is moving is a more useful thing to know.

Get rid of 'Discussions of the Day' and have Trending and Most Active.

DrDreReturns Tue 26-Jan-16 12:33:21

How can that be trending?
Because loads of people have looked at it but not commented.

I rarely use "trending" so im not massively bothered. But i agree that the way it is currently done is self-perpetrating and so a bit pointless.

Elendon Tue 26-Jan-16 12:43:31

And people will remark if they look at mumsnet that all women care about are their coffee meetings, and women who don't let their children see their fathers.

Which is NOT what mumsnet is about.

Yes you're right MaryZ! Like positive feedback control in biology. Most Active would be a more interesting imo. I think Discussions of the Day is boring, I'd relegate that to somewhere more obscure.

DrDreReturns Tue 26-Jan-16 12:45:26

Trending will, I think, include people who aren't members (I may be wrong but I don't think so going off the description above), so it won't give an accurate picture of what the members of the site are interested in.

Why isn't MNHQ commenting in any way on the poll thread about Trans People being allowed to compete according to their chosen gender.
From looking at that thread, there is a clear majority of posters who are concerned about this.
I can picture a Handmaiden type scenario where 'cis-woman' are giving birth in a manner akin to the scenario described in the Handmaids Tale.
That might be my imagination running away with me, but its still a scary thought.

In birthing centres? Or you mean the creepy, ritualistic three-person-on-a-bed conceptions?

Sorry if I'm missing the main point, but I'm interested in what you mean.

I agree Maryz and the current 'Trending' often contains deleted posts.
