M$364 bet
This was a question that @SG wanted to ask in our survey, but we never got around to it... So let's run a poll here, as well as a prediction market for the results! The poll will be run here; respond with YES or NO as the first word of your comment to be eligible. You may respond multiple times; only your last response will be counted. This market resolves to the % of people responding with YES out of YES + NO. As a participation bonus, one randomly chosen poll participant will win M$ 2000~

15 YESs, 1 NO (Ian), I'm going to exclude George and Antani for the purposes of calibrating this market. Though they were still eligible for the M$2000 prize drawing. Random number from 1 to 18 on Google gave me "6", so @wasabipesto is the winner!

@Austin seems like this question should close and be resolved with results as-is, given that the premise has now been invalidated by the recent change (Explore no longer exists).

Ok a little confused by this actually, ppl saying they "sort by x" on the explore/activity page, where as for me sort option is on home page

@NtaniManifold we switched the pages a couple days ago actually, based on the polling results. imagine the question reads "Do Manifold users visit the Home page more than the Activity page"!

NO - I like that the homepage shows me the recent activity on the market so I can see if anything has changed since I last saw it. However I agree that it doesn't necessarily show me the most useful list of markets. Maybe the functionality of the two pages should be merged together in some way.

YES - updated from before, I think I started using the Explore page more. I do wonder whether the results would be different if you asked frequent vs infrequent users though - I kind of feel like the activity page (old homepage) was decent for infrequent browsing.

I think I may enter Home more by accident, but usually enter Explore with purpose.

Between my dislike of infinite scroll, the ability to check new and closing-soon markets, and the greater amount of markets visible at a time, YES, I use the Explore tab way more often than Home. (I like the new categories though.)

YES. Why would I want a newfeed when I can see all my invested markets in portfolio, and look for new ones in Explore?

I never understood the home page, it seems bizarrely unintegrated with the explore page.

I visit the explore page, sorting by close date generally (I don't know why you guys got rid of least likely/most likely -you should have actually added a menu that allowed us to search by %age, or a mix of %age and volume/liquidity in order for us to find markets on our indifference curves).

YES - I generally visit the Explore page, sorting by newest. I'd estimate my ratio of usage is something like 4:1 on Explore:Home in terms of # times navigated; probably more like 6:1 in terms of time spent.
