New popular algorithm, digest comment emails, all step preference, and more! Answered

It was ready Halloween night, but we were too busy partying and trick-or-treating, so this new release had to wait until last night. It's got a bunch of great new things:

New popular algorithm with a popular RSS feed. New popular Instructables will be added to the top of the popular list. For the time being, there will be about one or two new ones every day, and you can follow them in your RSS reader. Bear with us for the first few days as we fine tune the algorithm and it starts to catch what's popular now (we loaded it up with a bunch of old popular Instructables so the list wouldn't be empty).

Digest emails. Within your email alert settings here you can now choose to get an hourly or daily email digest of all your new comments. We'll send you the full text of any comments and a link so you can respond.

All steps preference. Do you prefer viewing a project with all the steps on one page? You can now choose that view as a default. Look for that setting under "Update persona" here.

Plus, there are bunch of other small tweaks, fixes, and improvements. Let us know what you think!

I LOVE the new comment system. It was neat after a weekend away, and I come back and see: robot@instructables: 3 New Comments. I was like, hmm thats new, and it was pretty well laid out. Nice Work. Also, nice work with the popular instructables, it certainly will make other users happier to see new ones every day!
