Some SE (ex: Gaming) question counts/flow rates are still pretty low, which makes me want to read all the new questions and hope I can help someone. Is there a way to show questions new since my last visit? If not can we add this feature?

    I'll be honest I'm kind of confused by the current status of this question. I have one answer that doesn't answer my question, and even a comment by Mr. Atwood... that doesn't answer my question either, yet both have received up votes... It's like if I asked you if this city was going ever build a subway and you started telling me how to take taxis and then congratulated each other for it. They're not the same you know! Even a "no, we don't plan on ever implementing that" would be better resolution than I have now... – Drew Sep 26 '10 at 21:53

This would actually be a very good idea. Some other Q&A sites (e.g. https://root-forum.cern.ch/) show a small separation line for questions active since your last visit.

You can have all new questions sent to your email every day by creating a new filter:

No need to even visit the site.


If you go to the bottom of the front page there is a link to "Browse the complete list of questions", and once there you'll find a "newest" tab.

It doesn't keep track of when you were last around, however.

    clicking "questions" at the top of the page does the same thing – Jeff Atwood Sep 26 '10 at 3:25

    I'm well familiar with the Newest list. But I was hoping for having questions clearly marked as new since my last visit. SE tracks my visits, obviously, so the datapoint is already in the system. – Drew Sep 26 '10 at 4:30
