Do you remember back in the day when you could navigate easily between pages showing newest, featured, frequent, votes, active, and unanswered questions?
Introducing Custom Filters
With the arrival of the new custom filter feature on July 25 2019, two of those buttons are now hidden from view.
The featured button is named bounties on this page and the buttons frequent and votes have vanished.
Click on the “more” button
I think it is a great shame that the page showing the most upvoted questions is now shoved away. New visitors will not easily find this button, and I suspect they will lose interest in EL&U sooner rather than later. On a personal level, I fell in love with EL&U when I began visiting the most upvoted questions. I remember voting on these “old” questions and answers and thinking I had found something really special and useful for me. Nowadays not so much...
Can we ask the developers to make the votes button appear on the All Questions page as it did two years ago?
Does anyone else find the hidden votes button to be more harmful than helpful to the site's health?
I feel that EL&U is falling on the sidelines, its losing users, apathy is rife and it has no voice on Meta (or maybe it never did) that champions its cause.
What are your opinions about the custom filter? How useful is it for us?
