These are the Hot Network Questions (HNQ) that gets displayed across the entire set of Stacks:

HNQ

A different group of questions seem to get placed on it on refresh. While clearly these are the ones with lots of traffic and votes, and there's a formula for it somewhere, I have no way of knowing which WB questions if any are currently on HNQ.

Does anyone know any way to find out?

  • $\begingroup$ Over at Mi Yodeya, I'm trying to hack together a way to make our questions that show up on the HNQ list get posted to our chat room. So far, I haven't come up with anything that's reliable, fast, or elegant. The best attempts I've got right now (still being tested) are based on createfeed.fivefilters.org. I'll report back (and to MSE) when we settle on something. $\endgroup$ Feb 3 '16 at 19:12

I only know a manual way. You click on the Hot Network Questions link (also included in the image), and manually count on the two pages. If there's any way more fancy, I'm not aware of it.
