The old discussion forum for Hot Question has been locked, so this is the start of a new one.
Just released Hot Question v3.8.1 that included a few security fixes, as well as changing what the admin, manager, or teacher, sees when they click the Hot Question link in a course Activities block. I added a slashed eye to the name of hidden Hot Question activities, because showing hidden ones as "dimmed," was not very distinctive, with some of the many color combinations available in all the different themes.
Just today, I had a suggestion from user, b k, who would like to be able to change the table heading, "Questions," to something better suited to the way Hot Question is being used in each instance of the activity. e.g. When used as a suggestion box, "Suggestions" would be a better heading than Questions. My inclination is to also extend this to the other headings, Priority, Heat, Remove, and Approved, and do them as a site wide plugin setting, which can then be modified by any admin, manager, or teacher when editing a Hot Question activity.
While I am working on this, if anyone has any other suggestions for changes or improvements to Hot Question, please let me know.
