What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I like looking at the new questions posted in the past few minutes on the stackoverflow.com homepage.

Is there a way to filter this list by topic? I'm not much of an expert in anything but a few subject areas.

When I click "Unanswered" I get questions that are months old.

If you add favorite tags, the homepage will adjust to show you mostly questions that are from those tags. – waiwai933 Sep 18 '12 at 5:20
this works for the most part. I'm still get a few unrelated questions on the homepage that don't have any of my favoriate tags. – chovy Sep 18 '12 at 6:09
That's intentional—10% of homepage questions are randomly picked, so that all questions get some exposure. blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/11/stack-overflow-homepage-changes – waiwai933 Sep 18 '12 at 6:22
that explains it. I thought they were sponsored questions at first :) – chovy Sep 18 '12 at 6:27
