Newb question (sorry...) but I couldn't find a solid answer to this anywhere in the FAQ's...
What determines whether a question is categorized in the hot/activity/week&month lists (I know featured=bounty). Activity seems self-explanatory, but how is it differentiated from "hot," for example?
Also, is it possible to customize your experience on the site so that your home page only shows questions pertaining to a particular tag, or selection of tags?
Thanks again for your help! I'm very grateful.
