Silly question? but what makes a Hot Thread a Hot Thread as oppose to a latest post ? 

02/09/2014 at 19:03

One with Chillies in it ? 

Don't know really......no. of posts, heated debate ?........Someone will know Runnybeak

We've never really figured it out but one which gets at least one reply within a few minutes seems to trigger the red chili icon.

02/09/2014 at 19:11

Never noticed that Bob.

Often wondered as they seem the same but apathy set in and I've never found out

02/09/2014 at 19:12

I used to be apathetic nut, but now I can't be bothered...

02/09/2014 at 19:13

It's a lot of effort Fairy

02/09/2014 at 19:17

Too much for an  old mare like me 

02/09/2014 at 19:18

So it's not any spicy comment then  just must be hot in number of replies

02/09/2014 at 19:20

I always assumed it was one that was getting lots of replies too KEF 

02/09/2014 at 19:28

Runnybeak, congrats you got a chliil at 19.28pm

02/09/2014 at 19:33

This thread didn't have one until Philippa replied and if you look at the ID thread nut replied to this evening but which was originally posted at about 12.45, it doesn't have a chili.

Pretty sure it's as simple as that.

02/09/2014 at 19:35

 Thanks..... I think !!!!! 

02/09/2014 at 19:36

and that ID thread Bob mentioned still needs attention

02/09/2014 at 19:37

Seriously...... I think your right Bob.

02/09/2014 at 19:40

Bob............thanks for the explanation............despite mentioning Chillies, it hadn't occurred to me that the Chilli icon meant "Hot Thread".  I'd often wondered why the Chilli appeared on some posts  but was always too apathetic to think any further

02/09/2014 at 22:46

A hot thread ................... let me think a moment.            Got it !!!


The senior moments thread was definitely hot         ........ and cool.

It got me a delish white chocolate cheesecake recipe from bekk`s   mum

Not much left now         .

I am totally lost.

No names no pack drill. Mike has taken some flack from at least amember who seems to hate my guts. As most are aware, I also contribute to the RHS forum. Reference was recentyly directed to some of my posts thereon, not recieving any replies. How drab. In the real world. Often comments are made, suggestions put forth etc. At the conclusion of the meetings etc. That is it. Everyone has the right to speak out and express themselve.s No way under the terms of enlish litrature is there any existance relating to. Follow-up comments. So. Theoretically there is no case to answer, except of cource from the areas of shall we say. Juvenile responce.

I am sorry Mike Allen ,

I cannot understand what your answer has to do with Runnybeaks question.

But this is my question to YOU .

I. Have read your views to this thread but I must be missing the point.I cannot at all understand what you are getting at can you explain further but in layman's terms.please .

02/09/2014 at 23:46

I think the implication of Mike's post is that what constitutes a 'hot thread' is irrelevant to matters of horticulture. Whether such an assertion is valid remains open to question and relative to the requirements of the reader.

Only one member mike, you should see my pm inbox!
