Again - in the past I worked for very large semi firm - aware/understand "inertia." That said - popularity gauge - to my best knowledge has "never" worked - yet enjoys a continued and most prominent screen location - thus precluding "more necessary" (and functional) usage of such, "prime screen real estate!"
Appears (strangely) tad "sacred" - cannot failed popularity gauge simply be relocated - to a location of less screen prominence? (sense of "inside politics" wafts strongly to we "unwashed" - yet caring forum participants)
*Update* - This thread is discussing improvements to the "Popular Discussions Widget" that sits on the left of Stellaris areas of E2E. Any feedback and recommendations here please provide. I value every piece of feedback I get and there is nothing too small in doing everything and anything we can to make E2E an even better experience.

We unwashed - "providers of content" - hereby thank you. (more trusting/less aware unwashed "owe" old cb1 for that)
So - may we assume that today's brief, suspect post, "climbed Kilimanjaro with my M4" - duly noted/highlighted by the POPULAR POST widget will soon cause this failed widget to shortly be fixed and/or discarded? (really it behaves only as recent post "monitor" - with zero linkage to popularity - "steals" space from truly needed...)
As this forum is so good - so caring - such really bad "actors" (i.e. chronically/always misbehaving "popular post widget") are unsettling...
Thanks for the feedback and lets see what we can do here.
Not really part of the "Popular Discussion", but a different improvement I'd like to see...
When replying to a post, the topic of the thread is not available to be seen. The problem this presents is that often key parts of the question being answered are only included in the topic, and not in the post being replied to. This can cause confusion when composing the reply, or the asking of redundant questions like "What processor is this for" when the topic states something like "CAN issue on LM3S9B92". I'd like the topic to be shown somewhere on the reply composition page. The Preview option does not show the topic for the thread, either.
