Why does not the trending update recently?

Hi,
I found that the repositories on the trending list had not been updated recently. Only the number of stars has changed slightly.
Is it possible that the relevant sorting mechanisms do not work properly?
Maybe it is neither fair for those repositories with rapid growth of stars nor convenient for those developers who enjoy finding cool stuff in the trending list.
Hope to solve that.
Thanks.

Welcome to the community @grasswolfs, I’m sharing the information here. And again thank you for being here and reaching out, we appreciate the time you took to ask the question and report it.

I’m afraid we do not discuss the details behind our trending algorithm as that would allow users to game the algorithm used by trending, making the feature less useful to users. However, I can say that there are multiple factors other than number of stars. Things like the number of forks a repository has, and its date of creation also come into play.

Thanks for your reply and i am sorry for the bad tone just now. @andreagriffiths11
I can’t agree with u any more about that the users should not game the algorithm used by trending. However, the fact is that the repositories on the trending list have not been updated in serveral days. Is that really normal?

attach serveral screenshot pictures from the past days for reference,the repositories are always the same and the sequence is stable. I’m afraid there is something wrong.
