What is the difference between those two categories? Anybody know? I can't figure it out.

Just to add on, don't worry about top topics. It doesn't really mean anything as depending on the time of the day, you can easily get your topic to top topics - with say just 3 or 4 responses. No kidding. If you are an active poster and you refresh the top topics list every few seconds for 24 hours, I am quite willing to bet that your topic will appear that for at least once. The hot topics are those that accumulate more responses. Typically, I have observed that they end up having at least 30 responses ultimately. There is more leeway for this section as the topics stay for longer time. For hours up to a day. I think a day is the max - at least the longest I held a spot before was about 24 hours. Once it drops out, it's not likely to come back - unlike top topics. These are just my own guesses, I can't be sure really.

Todays top discussions are what people talk about. Todays hot topics are...what people talk about?

-The top discussion means the discussion which recieved maximum responses in the day and the hot discussion means a discussion which recieved responses recieved per hour are maximum. This is not importent in mylot. You just worry about the quality of the response or the discussion you start. Always see that your writing here is somehow useful to the mylot community. All the best from oarnamav.

Some show up in the same categories. I think maybe top discussions have more responses, and hot topics are more discussions that have just gotten started.

I've noticed some are in both categories. Thanks for your answer.
