  • ## Sort posts in one's own profile by score or age
  • The profile main page includes a selection of posts (currently top 15 by score), which highlights contributions by that user.
  • It would be nice if it was possible to select whether to show, say, the top 15 by score or the most recent 15 posts. The latter choice would highlight recent contributions, at the expense of long-lived posts where the latter are likely to have received more votes simply by virtue of having been around longer.
  • I imagine that this would apply to the user's own profile only, not to how other users' profiles appear to the user who changes the setting. (This would allow precomputing and caching the list, requiring updating only after posts by that user are voted on or added, respectively.)

  • This could hopefully be at least per community; I suspect that more fine-grained than that would increase the complexity a fair bit but provide little value, but people may want to make different trade-offs between different communities. (For example, it doesn't seem unreasonable to want to highlight recent posts on Code Golf but highly voted posts on Software Development.)

## Sort posts in one's own profile by score or age

The profile main page includes a selection of posts (currently top 15 by score), which highlights contributions by that user.

It would be nice if it was possible to select whether to show, say, the top 15 by score or the most recent 15 posts. The latter choice would highlight recent contributions, at the expense of long-lived posts where the latter are likely to have received more votes simply by virtue of having been around longer.

I imagine that this would apply to the user's own profile only, not to how other users' profiles appear to the user who changes the setting. (This would allow precomputing and caching the list, requiring updating only after posts are added or voted on.)
