Top news | Top in 24 hours | Top in 7 days | Top in 30 days | Where is the "non-filtered" option?
If I can only view the top-rated news items, then new news items I can't see. I glance at the news feed, "Oh, the item I read last is still at the top of the feed, so there must be no 'more-recent' news". Where's the "Chronological" feed filter button? Sorting by top-rated is great, I'd still use it frequently, but I also want to not miss other news items that might interest me, that other users or internet denizens find uninteresting.
Done. Added a "Most Recent" filter. We used to just have that, but since we aggregate from a bunch of sources it's like sticking your mouth on a firehouse at times. Plus we ran into problems with a lot of stories that weren't all that spectacular.. pretty mundane stuff like quarterly results.
