I apologize if I am delusional and imagined this, but I believe that in a not-so-distant past it was possible to display questions sorted by date so as to get the most recent ones on top of the list. And to achieve this, I selected "new" as opposed to "active" after clicking on the hyperlink "active". Now when I do that, I get active, hot, bounties, week and month. But no sign of "new" anymore. Sorry if I am late and everyone is up to date regarding this.
