I first saw it on the dba beta. But it seems to be in all sites?

  • Sorry for my poor English. May I add I find this rename a bit confusing. My first thought was to find some questions mystically tagged as faq.

  • @bernd_k - Just joking. Your English is significantly better than my German :) Hmm I cant find any reasoning behind the rename but I guess they are classed as FAQ based on the fact they have been viewed a lot. Commented Jan 6, 2011 at 13:43
  • @Barry just took a look into the blog and found nothing about it. I'm still confused with FAQ I associate something more static.

  • @bernd_k - the hot tab is still there. you have to go to stackoverflow.com not stackoverflow.com/questions Commented Jan 6, 2011 at 13:53

    @bernd_k - the "faq" tab just lists question with the most links where as the "hot" tab lists questions with most views, answers, votes over the last few days. Commented Jan 6, 2011 at 13:55

    If the first page of questions on the FAQ tab doesn't contain some variant of "why do I get 1 instead of 1.5 when I divide 3 by 2" then the F stands for something other than frequently.

No, it hasn't been renamed. It did displace the hot view in the link bar, however.

You can still see the hot list in the Questions page by hand editing the URL:


(You'll see no tab appears selected. That's because the tab has been visually removed.)

  • well how come I don't see it on the SO homepage? Or am I just being blind? ~ EDIT ~ OOOOOOOOOOOOHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I seeeeeee. When is this gonna be pushed to the "main page"?
