  • It's been like that ever since they started doing the points. It's annoying maybe (a little), but all you have to do is click "oldest" tab and it will put them back in the order in which they were answered. This feature is a MUST in order to read the debates on closed questions from Religion or Politics section, lol.

  • I have noticed it and I find it rather annoying especially since there is a word limit on how much you can type in one response. So, if you have to continue in another response box and only one of your comments is voted up then your response gets separated. If someone, is looking for an answer to something and they come across your question(s), then the answers are all mixed up. I think they should stay in the same order as there were written. Just have the best answer at the top and it the original order.

  • I've also noticed. It's rather unusual, maybe a glitch of sorts?

  • huh....that's kinda weird, since a lot of the times, the BA is nothing like the most-voted up answer. i think the CM admins have too much time on their hands.

  • but after the best answer (which is the questioner choice) all other questions are in order of votes, if one has vote downs it is at the end
    of course this is done ny the computer, it only took someone setting up the program to do this, so does not make cafemom adn=min spend any time

    i think finding all those do dad pictures for the award things took alot of time

  • excellent point jeremys mom
    never thought of that
    maybe for worde answers cafemom could do a button for CONTINUED and then posts would link together

    also
    totally screws about different order because some answers are about the answer before them, like they feed onto the other answers

    any way to tell cafe mom our thoughts??

    maybe can stay the same but have option button to put back in orginal order?? got to keep those cafemom techs busy

  • That is going to mess up the train of thought on some of the answers if they aren't in their original order.

  • Hi! Vicesix's answer (copied below) is correct -- this isn't anything new. I agree that for debate-type questions it's not great, but when someone's just asking for advice we think it can be helpful to sort the answers by votes.
