What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I went to the reqs tab from the meta homepage and I noticed that I was not able to paginate. Now, this really isn't that big of a deal, but there are two problems:

  1. It is ordered by votes, which means that you're likely to only see questions which were originally authored months, if not years ago. Personally, I view this as the real UI issue, but...
  2. It is counter-intuitive. One thing I think that SE has tried really hard to do is to make things as intuitive as possible, and this isn't.

Proposed solutions:

  • Have reqs simply link to the feature-request tab. I don't know how hard this would be, but it seems like it would be the most intuitive.
  • Order the page by recent activity and not by votes/question.
  • Have pagination on that page. I dislike this as I view it as inconsistent with the way that page normally works without adding benefiting the page much.

No need, just search for

[feature-request] -[status-completed] -[status-declined]

(add other not tags to taste, etc)

edit: good point, we should add the helpful text at the bottom offering the complete list.

There might be a point in putting this link at the bottom of the list, similar to the main page. Or simply doing this search (with sort=votes) instead of the current reqs tab. (The same is valid for "bugs"). –  Paŭlo Ebermann Oct 4 '11 at 23:20
    
Here's a question for data.SE. How much of Jeff's rep. is based on "status-..." answers? –  cwallenpoole Oct 5 '11 at 0:42
