Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Could featured question list contain all items when less than 5-8?

The featured tab here on meta is showing a highlighted 4, which I assumed to mean there would be 4 posts inside. How wrong was I?

Have I missed something here or is this a bug? It wasn't just a single occasion, the issue remained for multiple refreshes.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The fourth question that isn't appearing has like 45 downvotes. We don't show questions by default that are rated that poorly by the community. Takes an extra click to see those. – Cody Gray Jul 27 '11 at 11:25
I see. So if the heavily downvoted question isn't going to be displayed by default, wouldn't it make sense to have the highlighted number on the tab only reflect what you are going to initially see? – shanethehat Jul 27 '11 at 11:30
Maybe. Except that the number is indicating the total number of featured questions. You didn't miss the bold explanatory text and link at the bottom, did you? The part where it offers you to "browse the complete list"? – Cody Gray Jul 27 '11 at 11:38
I didn't miss it, no. I misinterpreted it, and feel slightly foolish for not clicking it before posting. – shanethehat Jul 27 '11 at 11:40
