Sidebar widget for trending tags

Description

I would like to see a sidebar widget that lists the currently trending tags (based upon relevancy, not quantity).

Sort of like this…

Use Case

The “Tag List Widget” is great and all, but it doesn’t serve our purpose for what we’re looking for.

We want a sidebar widget that can display some (or all) of the currently trending tags. You see, the “Tag List Widget” shows tags based on how many of them there are, not based on their relevancy. That means if a tag becomes popular and quickly loses steam shortly thereafter, it’ll still be up there and take up room that could fit tags that are more relevant (and that status is constantly changing).

Our Discourse community is based upon relevant discussion. What happens to be “relevant” is constantly changing. We need a sidebar widget that also changes with us.
