This is more of a query. I do know that one can use for e.g. https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions?sort=votes to see the highest voted questions ever, but I'm more interested to know what kind of interesting questions were asked say within the last week or two and if votes were 5 or more. I am sure there is a way to do it, just don't know, looking forward to knowing. And if it's not, maybe as a feature-request.
Many a time I do come across some intriguing questions but due to lack of time or something else, I forget the whole thing and don't even remember the context of what was the appealing question. And the questions are usually unique, something that I had not thought about in one way or other.
