Experiment - Stream - Sorted By Creation Date

We're experimenting with sorting the stream by creation date, rather than "last updated" date. For example, a poem created on August 14 will be displayed before a poem created on August 13, even if the August 13 poem was revised on August 16.

Neopoet Referendum No. 7

Do you agree with the following proposal?
We will create a unique workshop called "The Lab" in accordance with the community discussion ( Submissions to "The Lab" would have special visibility in The Stream and elsewhere.
