Would it be possible to show when a post was originally made as well as the last time there was activity on the post? (EDIT: From the home page, without having to go into the question itself.)
Sometimes, the post is a few years old, but someone either made an edit or a new member answered/commented bringing the post back to the top of the queue (An example: Can a Windows 7 DVD be used to install both 32-bit and 64-bit versions?).
I think it would be an asset to see whether the post is relatively new, or if it's being cleaned up.
Another request that ties along with this is the ability to see at a glance whether the recent activity was an edit (which means that I'm personally not interested) or a new answer has been given (which I may find of interest).
