Getting to the top of HNQ
Want to be the top Hot Network Question? No good ideas for a challenge? Never fear! Just
follow these easy steps, and you too can be rolling in rep.
1. Make it trivial
Choose a task that takes no skill to golf. Everyone will race to post in the first 30
seconds, launching your challenge onto the front page.
2. Pander to golfing languages
Find something that’s almost a built-in in many golfing language, giving them two-byte
answers. HNQ users will upvote these to the moon, giving your question all the hotness
3. Clickbait title
Something topical or catchy that will make everyone click just out of curiosity. No need to
make it relevant to the task.
4. Don’t mind the downvotes
So what if the regulars are slamming your challenge? Once on HNQ, it’s cartfuls of +5’s
from users who will upvote anything and can’t even downvote if they want to.
