Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 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

You can get newest question of particular tag (topic) by using the following URL:

In the given example you will find only question tagged mysql or sql or both. You can add more tags in the URL like this +or+tagname.
