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

Here's the question What's going on (in the OS level) when I'm reading/writing a file?

And I don't see it. I can open it from "my profile --> activity --> asked question" only.

I opened another browser and found it but now I don't see it again. It was asked 20 mins ago and has one answer already (i.e. I should be on the main screen, there are questions which weren't edited for 2 hours).

upd: after I added "fake" java tag I can see the question again. It looks definitely weird.

How can I prove that I realy don't see it? – Roman Feb 2 '11 at 0:24
A screenshot of the whole page would be good. – jcolebrand Feb 2 '11 at 0:25
@drachenstern: hm.. how can I do it? the whole page is much bigger then the screen. – Roman Feb 2 '11 at 0:27
@drachenstern: I can save it's html-content – Roman Feb 2 '11 at 0:28
Yes I know, it was a bit tongue in cheek. However, I also ack this problem. I don't see it either. I would suggest it has something to do with the new display queries, but I'm not entirely sure. – jcolebrand Feb 2 '11 at 0:28
Your edit suggests it is directly related to the tags then, which is in keeping with the invisible tagging they've added to help focus the frontpage on questions that you care about. – jcolebrand Feb 2 '11 at 0:37

The front page algorithm is complicated and varies per user, and also is partially a random sampling.

We get 3,000 questions per day so .. well, do the math. :)
