There is interesting questions tab on the home page. How does Stack Overflow define what is interesting to me?

  • I am a new user and not familiar with how to ask a question. I re-edited the question.Could you answer it? – xshsinap Mar 4 '15 at 6:12
  • Your revised question is answered here: blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/11/stack-overflow-homepage-changes (unless SE tweaked their algorithm recently, which I suspect they did). – user259867 Mar 4 '15 at 6:13

    Things have changed enough that this really isn't duplicate any longer. It's also perfectly on-topic here. I'll see about getting this answered. – Tim Post Mar 4 '15 at 7:41

    @Tim I disagree. In such case we should simply update the original, not starting a new question. No? – Shadow The Princess Wizard Mar 4 '15 at 7:52
  • @TimPost I'd love to hear about the changes; my impression is that the "recent" factor is now emphasized more than "unanswered". But I agree with Shadow in that the old post needs an update; having two posts with different information will be confusing. – user259867 Mar 4 '15 at 15:52
  • @FamousBlueRaincoat The definition of interesting tab is that questions that may be of interest to you based on your history and preference tags. But I didn't see the history is mentioned in the blog. How does the history work? – xshsinap Mar 5 '15 at 5:44
  • Top 40 scoring tags reflect the history of answering. – user259867 Mar 5 '15 at 5:49
