UX input for the front pageDec. 20, 2013
File this one under IMHO, but I'd prefer the front page or 'HOTTEST' page to be laid out a little more like the 'LATEST' page. That is, more headlines. Particularly on mobile. I do like the visual layout of the front page but use this great site for it's content value. Yes, function over form in this case. I'm a headline scanner/scroller when it comes to news consumption due to limited time and the sheer volume of content available. But it is just a minor inconvenience to have to keep hitting 'load more' especially after missing a day or two of visits.
One possible solution would be to use infinite scroll instead? Another idea could be to have one front page with a sorting type of toggle for 'LATEST' and 'HOTTEST'.
I just don't want to miss all the good stuff that gets buried after a few days.
