So, I noticed last week that the wording for the Stack Exchange Front Page was confusing.

Well, it turns out that the wording is actually completely incorrect.

Travis J noticed that all of the users on the front page are the OPs of the questions listed there.

This area is the issue:

Location of area

It reads

Top Network Users

These users asked or provided top answers for the posts on this page

I found that confusing, so I proposed this wording (provided by random):

Top Network Users

These users provided the top questions and answers on this page

But, again, the users listed there are the ones who asked the questions; none answered them:

Question askers (click for larger image)

Since all of the "Top Network Users" are the askers, it should be something like this:

Top Network Users

These users asked the questions listed on this page

Either that, or answerers of those questions should be included along with the askers.

  • Was about to ask a question about what is "Top Network Users", as I found the description is quite confusing. What is the purpose of displaying these, with their name already in the questions list? Shouldn't it be more meaningful if "Top Network Users" lists the real top user (with the highest rep. for example) of each site?

    I'm noticing that this is still the case. I guess that it's low priority but it does seem to need addressing.

I went with a slightly more radical approach:
