Recent entries should come first on Home Page

I feel that the newest published Instructables should automatically come up first.

That way they will get more views,  because people will know that they havn't seen them before. If you want to see what was the most popular (or other), then you can select it. The ones that have already gained an amount of approval will continue to do so because they already get most prominance, and people are likely to view them because someone else has deemed them worthy. Thanks for looking.

Most projects get by far the most views either via search engines or because they have been featured (which promotes them to the front page).

After that will come (I think) searches within the site, then followers, then people browsing the recent pages.

Those on the front page are the most recently-featured, which is about the best compromise available for the limited space.

(The actual design and layout of the front page is a different issue to the content.)

This is not a bad idea. Yeah, sure it might display ones with no effort, but it does help with views. I can't change how the site works, but I can only wait and see how things turn out.

Thanks for your comment and sub.
For me, i think they should keep featured instructables on the home page. It shows instructables that are great projects. I know a lot of people just write like a twenty word instructable and use clip art. New people who come to this site should see the very well made ones instead of the corny ones.

I'll have to think about this. I,m not able to do the super clever Tech, Elec and so on, so my Ibles could be considered "corny" but I still like to have a go.
Just a point-- I have not joined as a Pro member because my skill levels are (as they are) and I don't fancy being unable to do computer stuff and asking "dumb" questions, whilst a Pro member.
Featured instructables don't necessarily have to be technical. Right now i know there are some crocheted art work and other things. By corny i meant only like a five word instructable that does not have a real purpose and doesn't use actual pics and took 30 seconds to make

Fair enough. Thanks for that.
And for the record i think your instructables are very nicly made and have a good purpose
