If you can attach that thread, I'd appreciate it. I don't see that question. I'm very curious about that same thing. Thanks

Hi SKK, there are a lot of comments on that thread, so you might have missed it, but I did respond at multiple points. The community is the backbone of Food52, and it's helpful to have such thoughtful feedback there for us to review.

Have read all of the 44 comments and the responses were not satisfactory in light of the question and the numerous responses. Find your response "the community is the backbone of Food 52 and it's helpful to have....." somewhat dismissive.

Agree, response comes off as very diplomatic, and not really addressing the question.

The popular questions are automatically selected based on a combination of points assigned to the number of answers, number of views, and number of votes.

SKK - I'm truly sorry if my comment read as dismissive, I assure you that it wasn't meant to be. We know you're upset, we're upset too, and we're going to work on fixing things, but change takes time! We value all of the helpful feedback on that thread and other recent ones and encourage you all to continue to submit comments. This is how we get our best ideas! We want to continue to make the Hotline a great tool and the site itself a welcoming space for all of our community members.

I'm confused about the question. Unless I'm mistaken, anyone can post a question to the hotline, and anyone can answer it. I've posted a few, mostly I've gotten helpful answers, other times not many bites. Are you asking when Food52 admins, rather than regular users, decides to respond to hotline questions?

While there are less contests, there are baking and cooking clubs, which are really interactive. Also it seems like they're trying some new things lately, less contests, more interesting articles. Personally, I'm still getting lots of great recipes to try out, which is the main reason I use Food52. Maybe they read all the comments and are actually finding the discussion useful, or maybe they want to try out different directions. Why shouldn't they do different things with their website? Cut them some slack.

You are right, Stephanie. It is "their website." Perhaps some of us who have been members of the Food52 community since the beginning (or nearly) are incorrect to miss the camaraderie we had back when we had contests nearly every week, and we were busy thinking up new slants to old recipes to make them fresh . I'm guessing you are fairly new to the site, because it is a fact that it has changed greatly, and - as some of us have expressed - not in a manner that is as inclusive of the community members as it was before.

You're right ChefJune, I am newer to the site. Thanks for your perspective, maybe I don't know what I'm missing!

I always thought it was automatic by 'likes', all computer calculated.

Yes, you're correct BerryBaby, the calculation is based on a combination of points assigned to the number of answers, number of views, and number of votes.
