Above the list of questions I'm viewing in stackoverflow, I noticed the title is "Top Questions." There is also a tab selected that says "interesting."
It is indeed interesting, because I have no recollection of this "feature" existing in stackoverflow. I then select the "Questions" button, and the title changes to "All Questions." In an effort to understand "Top Questions," I search in vain to discover where the "Top Questions" button is to be found. I hunt through almost every button or link I can select, and none will bring up that "mode" again. The only way I'm able to return to "Top Questions" is by using my browser back button.
So I'm wondering two things:
- How does a stackoverflow user intentionally reach "top questions". What option is selected?
- What defines or determines "top questions"? What defines those questions that are "interesting"?
