It slowly dawns on me, after several years of using the SE network, that it doesn't do the obvious: present questions to me where I might be of maximum value. Specifically:
- Questions on any of the SE sites that I'm a member of
- That are at risk of going unanswered (ie, not minutes-old questions that will likely be answered by someone else)
- That match my expertise (based on favourite tags, or tags of questions I've answered)
- With a bias to higher rated questions
SE seems good at pointing me at "hot" questions (ie, ones with many answers), or all "unanswered" questions (regardless of whether they're relevant, or even answerable). This seems very inefficient from the perspective of maximising the number of answered questions (rather than maximising total number of answers).
Am I missing a feature somewhere? If so, are others missing it too?
