You can now view top posts for a day, week, month, year, or forever! The "switch" for this is in the nav bar at the top and is also available in the dropdown.

More details: we also remember whether you last viewed "top" or "recent" and which "top" interval you last viewed so that if you have a habit it's on average fewer clicks away.

lmk if you have any trouble or think it can be improved. 🍻

Thanks everyone for pushing for it! (Most memorably @neb_b and @nout.)

Thank you :) Pretty cool.

One suggestion I would have is to actually default to the "recent" view as that will imho make more people vote on the recent topics. And I'm saying this even though I probably want to see "top" more often... :)

Oh maybe it's already working like that, or there's some bug? When I go to https://stacker.news/, then the label says "top", but the items are not sorted by votes.

It's just labeling the button, not the current sort. The sort of the homepage is 'hot.' I kind of intended it as a customizable button which goes to either 'recent' or 'top' depending on what you viewed last. It's not a normal UX pattern but it's what I wanted.

I see. Ok, that's reasonable and probably learnable. :)

Thanks man

This is great- i was going to recommend an option to save listing preference as I find myself using recent most often as a frequent visitor.

You're killing it! 🔥
