Two updates in one day!
Today Quatrarius made a few good suggestions.
One of them was that you should be able to choose a page as your 'homepage'.
So we did that.
You can now choose your homepage to be one of the following in you settings: feed, global, chatter, or badges.
Your feed is the default selection.
Quatrarius also suggested that the global feed be sorted by 'time' rather than 'activity' as the default. I have received similar feedback that suggests that is what people would expect. So we are also trying that out.
Now global, badges, and tag feeds sort by time by default, rather than activity. We will see how that feels.
As always, feedback is much appreciated.
