What's New (April 15th 2011)

I've tried to make the site easier and more fun to use this time around.

Trending Articles – You can now see the articles that are most often rated by other users on the trending page. If you are familiar with reddit or hacker news this page works very similarly. As an article is rated more often it will organically make its way in the top.

Random Interesting Article – The whole point of this site was for me to be able to set my homepage to the random wikipedia article and learn about new and interesting things. If you set your homepage to the random page you will get a page that has been randomly selected from all the articles that have already been rated. Try it out here

Better User Page – Now you can see the articles you've already rated. No sorting or anything fancy like that (that's still to come), but you can see what you've rated and what you rated each article.

Bug Fixes and Usability – There have been lots of little bug fixes around, so hopefully you either didn't notice before or you'll notice a little more polish to the site. As with any (very) beta site, things are always in flux, but hopefully trending to the better.
