@Joiner no, but we might group the "hot", "week", "month" tabs into one with subtabs to free up space for this new tab.

comment OpenID Attribute Exchange - should I use it?
Yeah, this entire question is kinda deprecated now; new implementations should use OAuth 2.0

@JuJoDi that min rep tooltip was meant to tie rep filtering to only unanswered questions (found in the recent/needs answer tabs), not any hot questions that were being shown in the recent/hot tabs.

@rene I'll look at implementing not tags - good idea.

@juergend we're still working on the "filter by quality" option that is linked from your linked question; in the meantime, this rep filter, while a worse proxy for quality, was very easy to implement, so we wanted to see how it would be used.

@JonEricson yes, it'll be difficult, depending on the filter, as not all filters are applied at the same time. For example, if you filter by tags, score, and user rep, we'll grab the latest N questions by tags and score, then filter that N by reputation. We currently have to do this because of performance: anything tag-related needs to come from the tag engine, which has no knowledge of user rep. Same with review.
