We have a tab to sort Popular Posts, based on favorites. I would find use in a Most & Least Active tab (each side of that for different reasons), based on number of comments.

When is the best time to post to "Ask" in order to have the most looks with the least number of new posts pushing my question off the page? Has anyone figured this out? Is this "cheating"?
Can we have a Popular Comments tab like the Popular Favorites one? [more inside]
There is a single page that globally ranks comments across the three sites by number of times favorited, spanning the past seven days (link). There are individual pages that rank posts for each subsite by number of times favorited in the past day (AskMefi, Mefi, and Meta). Do there exist individual pages for each subsite that rank the comments most favorited within the past 24 hours — or even a single page that spans all three but ranks the most favorited comments in the last 24 hours?
When is the best time of day to ask a question on AskMefi and get maximum response / eyeballs? Seems like there's a hundred questions per day lately. In my particular upcoming case it will be about gadgets, if that affects the answer. Has anyone done an analysis of posting rates over the 24 hour day, and which time periods get the most responses?
