For some time now, "Promoted" has been reserved for articles written by MIRI staff, mostly about MIRI activities. Which, I suppose, would be reasonable, if this were MIRI's blog. But it isn't. MIRI has its own blog. It seems to me inconvenient both to readers of LessWrong, and to readers of MIRI's blog, to split MIRI's material up between the two.
People visiting lesswrong land on "Promoted", see a bunch of MIRI blogs, mostly written by people who don't read LessWrong themselves much anymore, and get a mistaken impression of what people talk about on LessWrong. Also, LessWrong looks like a dying site, since often months pass between new posts.
I suggest the default landing page be "New", not "Promoted".
