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

I find myself occasionally hanging out on the StackOverflow front page, seeing an interesting question advertised on another StackExchange site (like Gaming, SE, or English.SE), but then clicking into one of the questions, only to push the back button and see a different ad.

This isn't necessarily bad, but to see the ad I remember seeing, I will refresh the front page as many times as I need to in order for the ad to come up again. I'm not sure if this is bad for the site or not.

So my question: Since I like looking at these ads, would it be possible to make a page that contains all of the current StackExchange cross-site ads at the same time instead of hammering the front page?

I understand that the "StackExchange hot questions" button in the upper left corner contains similar information, but sometimes I looking at the questions in the site's theme motivates me to go there more than a general list does.

I do this all the time, and I'm happier when I'm browsing on my iPad, where Mobile Safari doesn't refresh the linked question when I go back. – Michael Petrotta Dec 22 '11 at 17:26
I simply use for this purpose (in contrast to the dropdown), especially because its always up to date while the handmade ads aren't – Ivo Flipse Dec 22 '11 at 18:52
