The selection of homepage question is under a lot of criticism. At the end of the day AlexW makes the decisions on what does and doesn't make the homepage. Many users believe that he is stubborn to take old questions off and put new ones up. It is not often that new questions make the homepage and even rarer that they stay up. Because questions are rarely changed, this has allowed ones up to gather mass amounts of votes and comments.
