Sorry, i don`t know if this is the correct community to share my thoughts, but I’m wondering if lemmy team does trending posts instead of communities.

As most of us know, trending widgets are to attract the attention to specific topics, and titles play a big role in this. i believe if lemmy team switches the trending communities in the sidebar to show trending topics the widget will paly bigger role to extend the reading time.

Share your thoughts if you agree or not.

I suppose the trending area could be user selectable- like it is for prefered page sorting. here’s the source for Lemmy-ui in case you can do the code yourself. https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-ui

How extending reading time benefits the user?

In fact I’m not sure, but maybe this will allow the users discover more. for me, nice titles attract me, i like to jump from post to another with this.

Although more engagement with a product is taught to be a good thing on itself (especially from marketing pov) it does not necessarily translate into quality of life for a user.

Why have a trending sidebar when you can just look at the front page?

A loosely moderated place to ask open ended questions

If your post is

  1. Open ended
  2. Not offensive
  3. Not regarding lemmy support (c/lemmy_support)
  4. not ad nauseam inducing (please make sure its a question that would be new to most members)
