Thiings are looking so much better right now. Thank you.
Right now, by looking at the tin (my connection sucks and I can't open every one)
- Hidden features of Google -- list of X
- What is your most-used web application? -- poll
- Returning from a method with implicit or explicit "else" or with a single "return" statement? -- poll(ish) / religious war
- How do I do a Barrel Roll? -- okayish, driven up by the barrel roll internet phenomenon?
- What should a developer know before building cellphone apps? -- poll
- What are some programming games that are out there? -- poll
- can we pass arrays as arguments to functions by this syntax, under upcoming c++0x standards ? -- looks fine on the tin
- Tools that every Do-it-Yourselfer must own -- list of X
- How does implicit typing make code clearer? -- religious war
- Date Ubuntu was installed? -- sounds like a question I'd love to read the answer for!
Well, the overall effect is horrible. The guys on chat inform me that "Hidden Features of Google" is closed, locked, caged, drowned, teared apart, etc., and yet is right now the network's business card to new users, advertisers and venture capitalists...
The hotness ranking may be accurate and good at measuring hotness (still, why are closed questions listed at all?!), but it's failing to bring up the quality, expert questions StackExchange is all about.
