  • Top of the Sub:

What is it: Top of the Subs aka 'TotS' would be a sorting tab (like hot/new/funny/top) where the (lets go with) 5 (for now) top articles of every sub are displayed. This would also be sorted then like top, so the different sub-stories are mixed. So if you had a long day, you can get an easy overview.

  • New on the Subs

What is it: New on the Subs aka 'NotS' would be a sorting tab like like hot/new/funny/top/TotS) where the (lets go with) 3 (for now) top articles of every sub are displayed. This would also be sorted then like new, so the different sub-stories are mixed. So if someone is dumping their music library you can visit this tab as still see other posts that are new.

These sound pretty good. So it's about giving every sub a fair shake and not letting popular subs overwhelm hot and new and top, on /s/home * and /s/all and /s/subscribed ? For the time range, it could use the "links from" filtering, and you could pick "past 24 hours".

Exactly!

Because there may be good links out there in subs you are not subscribed to and these could be a way to discover them (and discover new subs to subscribe to).

For now it's still okay to be subbed to all, so more a future thing.

I see magnora likes it too. I'll add it to our list for such a time when we stop auto subscribing everyone to everything.

Interesting ideas! I'll have to think about them for a while, because this is like a 30+ hour project, but I do like the ideas and intent. Kind of to keep one sub from dominating any tab.

We've also considered limiting people to 15 posts a day (not counting comments) in order to cut down on people dominating the site too much in one day. I like your approach too. Maybe we'll do some combination of them.
