Just posted a question on the SO. But can't find it in the homepage, i.e. in the Top Questions list.


More newest and oldest questions from another users are displayed in that list:



For now question has an answer, but I still can't see it in the homepage (even in private mode). Maybe some problem with a title?

Also, question has 3 votes for close. Could this be a reason to hide question from homepage?

  • From what i know homepage list is generated based on your favorite tags do you have one of the tags in your question as favorite tag? Dec 28, 2016 at 10:05
  • It also could mean that a lot of questions have been asked since your question

  • @Abhishekgurjar As I know top question list contains ALL question with recent activities. Also I have a some of question tags in my fav tags. Dec 28, 2016 at 10:08
  • @Doc page contains both: more newest and more older posts than my own. I.e. my question should be anywhere in the middle. But doesn't. Dec 28, 2016 at 10:09
  • @alexolut ah yes, now I see now - that is indeed a bit odd

As I know top question list contains ALL question with recent activities.

Not as far as I know. You are just shown a subset of posts that matches your current profile best. This is only on SO as far as I know where the number of posts is so high that they can't show all new posts, it just wouldn't make sense.

This blog post shows some more information how the page is calculated, but it doesn't tell about the capping on Stack Overflow.
