A sorting algorithm for sorting by "hotness", roughly based on Reddit's algorithm with a few tweeks.

scope :order_by_hot, ->
  { order("round((votes_count - 1) / POW(DATE_PART('day', Now() - created_at) * 24 + DATE_PART('hour', Now() - created_at) + 2, 1.5)::numeric, 8) DESC, votes_count DESC") }
View reddit.rb
class Story < ActiveRecord::Base
# make likes count whatever basic score you want. it would be the sum of up plus down votes, or use whatever cache counters you have and weight them accordingly.
#the magic time should just be a unix time right before people started making stuff, for us, its just 6 months before we started
def self.ranked
order("(ln( 1 + posts.likes_count) + (EXTRACT(EPOCH FROM created_at) - 1327654606)/9000) desc")

Autoscroll implementation in CoffeeScript. From my latest hobby project. If the user is reading history that's way behind, then do not scroll to the latest message. If the user is reading history that's less than 4 lines away from the latest message, then scroll to the latest message.
