https://lobste.rs/newest still exists and gives you what you want. I think the intent of “recent” is to be “not-yet-popular”, e.g. “recent” union “home” is approximately “newest”. Whether it succeeds at that I couldn’t say, and whether it’s a desirable intent at all is extremely debatable.
Is there a special reason why ‘newest’ is not one of the header links alongside ‘Recent’?
Are there other list pages that are available which I might not know about as a newbie? Thanks :)
Yes, because I want people to look at /recent and upvote things. My rationale was posted here.
There is no list of other pages yet, though I should make one since I just added support for /top and things like /top/1y.
Thanks for the info!
