Thanks for first coffe bought on http://bit.do/mtebmc ! You're awesome, anonymous donor :)
After a bit of a struggle and instability during last days, i decided to rewrite Listener script to #ruby. Metrics needs some time to get back on track so please be patient and give them a day or two to calm down.
Apart from that - trending algorithm has been slightly refactored. There is still a lot of room for improvements but let's see how it's gonna behave in upcoming days/weeks.
@ruben_wolff thanks! I'm currently listening public timelines of four instances (mastodon.social photog.social vis.social and hcxp.co) but recording toots from all the instances that shows up on these public timelines - which is currently 731
Ey oop, are there any SQL magicians who can help the Tags Explorer out with this?
@Sylvhem haha hopefully refactored trending algorithm will take care of it
@cassolotl didn't knew about the search tool from switter but this totally make sense. Anyway - if the hashtag usage is constantly huge , trending algorithm should detect it and lower it's score - so that needs to be tweaked for sure :) I'm gonna elaborate more about it on discourse.joinmastodon.org, just need to get back home first.
A collection of things I made for people new to #Mastodon, based on questions I commonly see in the public timelines during influxes of new folks. :)

How to find and interact with toots that haven't reached your instance yet: https://dev.glitch.social/@cassolotl/99766038792455458
@cassolotl it updates once per minute, so we can say these are super-close-to-being a live stream. Algorithm is pretty stupid, i've described it on discourse.joinmastodon.org (and you replied there so i believe you've read it already :)
My primary goal right now is to make the algorithm better as it sucks a bit atm. there are mostly tags from switter and that's caused just by the fact that this instance has a lot of tweets and is basically huge, this should definitely be refactored.
