Is it possible to change what appears on the home page?
Seems to me the very first thing we should see is a list of all questions with the newest ones at the top. Right now you have to go hunting for that list.
No, it's not possible to change what appears on the home page. To get a list of the newest questions, you have to switch to the 'questions' page.
There's some work being done around the home-page experience and maybe it's time to bring this up again. I never particularly understood the design were we have a "home page" listing of questions… and then a completely separate (and different) "questions page" listing of questions. But for now, to get to the newest questions, click on the 'questions' link at the top of the page.
