Dear Fergus and dear authors of Chess Variant Pages,

perhaps I have not fully understood the Chess Variant Pages and do not know the possibilities that the system offers. Nevertheless, my question:

Is it conceivable - or already realized - to derive a ranking of attention or interest from the frequency of hits on a variant page? Such a possibility would be very helpful for the authors from my point of view to be able to recognize the appreciation of a variant.

I do not mean the Recognized Chess Variants in alphabetical order, nor the variants marked with 'hearts'. I have in mind a ranking in numerical ascending or descending order based on hits.

Did this already exist, so am I too late or is this an interesting approach?

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
