Very strange to upvote questions and then going back to vote sorting tab to see question which is one year old. It would be best to see good questions from past day, days week month.

So in current form upvoting a question makes no sense. To me.

Thank you for thinking about this message.

    $\begingroup$ I'm confused. If you want them sorted by time why don't you use the "newest" tab? $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 10, 2012 at 17:35
  • $\begingroup$ it does not sort by time and most voted up, or does it? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Why is it so important WHEN a good (highly upvoted) question was asked? Good questions have no expiration date ... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Dilaton - you are mixing 2 different things. In global its not important at all. In local i want to follow up most "interesting" questions, not just browse new once or high activity ones. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ People dont understand. What is sense to upvote? There are many interesting questions which got 3 or 5 upvotes and they will sink forever in the last tabs (you have to browse to the last pages of vote tab) of 700 best questions with average vote number lest say being 5. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Now if you just go to physics.stackexchange.com you have the tabs "active" , "featured", "hot", "week", "month". I dont remember if it was there before :) since i was always first pressing "Questions", but i like it! :) Question answered. $\endgroup$
