I haven't been here for a while and my Newest Nodes list was dated like 2005 or something. It took forever to display Newest Nodes (I failed to wait for it to load). I started looking around for a quick solution to reset this list w/o having to load it first and couldn't find where I could do this. I went to my home node and to my user settings and clicked on 'Newest Nodes Settings'. Wow, there it is... just click the button to reset the flag. Took me a while to figure it out.
It really should be very easy to find. I'm used to perlmonks website and still took me a long time to find it after I've been away for a while.
