Question for those with more experience than I here: why in the last few days are many of the questions on the home page many years old? I'd really rather see recent questions on the home page; am I doing something wrong...? Or is mod activity on these questions inadvertently pushing these to the first page? If the latter, are there alternatives that don't have this undesirable side effect?
As far as I can tell the edits to these questions are all by the community user.
