Lately, Minekhan programs are becoming a problem. People make spin-offs of Minekhan and build rather interesting things in their copy. However, they usually don't edit any code, and only add an extremely long save code, which lets it get onto the hotlist.
The "hot" list is a gallery of projects that have been recently popular with the community, according to votes. You can find that list by clicking "Browse projects" on the Computer Programming homepage.
The purpose of the "hot" list is to highlight original projects that create something really cool - like a game, graphic, or interactive simulation -- feel free to vote up a project if you’re impressed by its programming, functionality, or code!
That's the Khan academy "definition" of hotlist. So if that's what the hotlist is, programs that are original games, graphics, or simulations, why is it that unoriginal Minekhan builds that don't usually contain any extra code (other than the save code) from the original are on the hotlist, and sometimes are voted enough times to get onto the votes list?
