Sometimes when I log in I have to dig around a bit for interesting questions and answers. I know it's all subjective and there are filters etc, but it might be a cool idea to have a 'while you were gone' section at the top.

It could, for example, contain questions you've not see before that have high activity levels and match the top 3 tags associated with you.

    Maybe this works on UX, but I doubt the usefulness on SO where there were tons of questions in the time I went for a coffee break. – Patrick Hofman Sep 22 '15 at 14:59

I like the idea, but I'm not sure how easily we could get StackExchange to change the base code to support this. So it's more a technical issue than a UX one preventing it.

  • ah okay, thanks :) what's the best way to make this sort of suggestion to them? – Chris Jul 24 '15 at 13:23
  • @Chris, you could propose it as a "question" with tag of "feature-request" on the main meta site. – 3nafish Jul 24 '15 at 16:52
