What's on? - Most viewed / trending event page
Description of feature request
Add a page (with a tab to reach that in the tab-bar) that shows a list of every gravitational wave events detected, but sorted by visualisation (i.e. every time a user logs to the event page). The page could look like a list with simple and clean entries that might be of interested of less regular visitors:
SUPEREVENT_ID PREFERRED_EVENT DATE_TIME FAR MASS1 MASS2 VISUALIZED
Of course one must implement a visualisation counter to produce the VISUALIZED Column
It would be also nice if this page can have a switch button at the top of the the list, between "MOST VISUALIZED" and "TRENDING" event. While "MOST VISUALIZED" would refer to the above list, "TRENDING" list would show the most visualized event at the moment (might be in the last 1 week or 1 mont, two months or 6 months - even better if one can select this for option to shape the list).
The tab name to redirect to this page could be any. At the moment I can suggest "What's on" , "Hall of fame", "Most viewed". But further research and ideas could come later.
Not everybody want to follow or receive all of the alerts. The DB could appear overwhelming for people outside the collaboration of the GW field. Some scientists (both outside and inside the gravitational wave field) might only be interested casually in what is going on with detections. This way they can now follow which one were the most interested events ever or which ones get all the hype in some specific period.
It would keep hyped people inside and outside the gravitational wave field and make the GraceDB more user-friendly and appealing for casual visitors.
Not anyone at the moment I can think of
Thank you to Jennifer Wright, trending event idea was from her.
