As a daily habit, on github, i'd like to check trending repo's to discover new popular content. The trending view consists most likely of 'most stars today'.
Is it impossible to create a trending view? Explore -> sort by most stars is a unique total of all stars accumulated on the repository, not ranked by the past day.
It could create a little bit more traffic to 'upcoming' repositories, by discoverers like me. And thus potentionally increase 'social coding' on projects.
