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 Jan 6 '11 at 13:40
  • @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. – codingbadger Jan 6 '11 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 Jan 6 '11 at 13:47
  • @bernd_k - the hot tab is still there. you have to go to stackoverflow.com not stackoverflow.com/questions – codingbadger Jan 6 '11 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. – codingbadger Jan 6 '11 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. – tvanfosson Jan 6 '11 at 14:37

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"? – jcolebrand Jan 6 '11 at 14:09
  • @drachenstein as Barry found it is in the questions tab – bernd_k Jan 6 '11 at 16:19
