"Reader's Digest" version now "Greatest Hits" March 13, 2006 12:23 PM   Subscribe

Matt, while I quite like the new layout of the "fantastic posts/answers" page for AskMe, some of the old functionality has been lost. It used to be that when I was pressed for time, I'd come and see what questions/answers had been recently flagged. This gave me the "reader's digest" version of AskMe. Now, though, all I see is the "greatest hits". There's no way to see what's bubbling to the top, only what's already there. Anyway to combine the two somehow?

It's just a temporary stopgap page until I replace it completely, so bear with me and you'll soon see something better there.

My solution suggestion to cover all bases was drop-downs for most-flagged over a few time frames (shortest one being zeitgeisty to give 'reader's digest view', longest for 'greatest hits'), with a tick to filter to 'mine only'. Possibly too database-expensive, though.

Sorry I keep chiming in on this thing, but this is one feature I actually spent far too much time thinking about...

I do like that it's not just numbers anymore. I never used it, now I might.
