Continuing the discussion from Reading Topics and Context:
I’m starting to notice, since I had that 60 second auto-notify thing on for awhile before configuring it out of my view of the world, that the algorithm prompting for suggested topics to read next at the bottom seems to continually surface the same items. If I go read one of them, a new one takes its place, which makes good sense. Then, inevitably, I get to a list of 5 things that are not compelling enough for me to jump to.
Two thoughts on this:
- You could do something simple almost like a captcha reload, Just give me a button to cycle that list to the next five.
- This would be a great place to display the view that I used to get here (e.g. all unread) either instead of the suggestions, or in addition to them.
