i want to see the most popular posts from six months ago December 23, 2012 6:20 PM   Subscribe

I seem to remember having the option to view more than just the week's popular posts. I think it was most popular of 24 hours/ week/ all time or something. Now I can't do it. I can only see the week's. Am I imagining things? Have I suddenly become incompetent? Or has this changed and I just didn't know about it for whatever reason?

The Popular Favorites Tab gives these options for MeFi (prev. link), AskMe, and MeTa.

The Popular link covers all sites over the past 7 days, and is what you've been looking at.

windykites, I had the same conversation with myself earlier this week! And then a few days passed and I found it again, but I had no idea what I had done differently.

Ohhhh, I was mixing up "popular" and "popular favourites". That's embarassing. Thanks.

Naw, it's really easy to get them confused. They sort of seem redundant because of the naming similarity, but (as you can see) they show different things. The major distinction is that the 'Favorites' link covers all sites over the past 7 days whereas the tabs cover the three major subsites over your choice of time frames.
