The Verge homepage

I love the style of The Verge homepage. But I do have a problem with what goes on below the coloured tiles. Simply put, during events, live events, it's hard to tell whether you guys put something there or whether it's all in chronological order. It'd obviously be way better in Blog style, where it's always chronological, but I understand why The Verge prefers this.

So why not have a little icon when a post has been attached to the homepage manually? And also, during events, why not just update one article, instead of making readers go to 10 articles that all have different, possibly outdated, information, which has happened during recent events.

Just some feedback! I love The Verge as it is, but it can get a little chaotic during events.
