Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

What I want to propose is to add a bit more information to the initial view of the question, that is when it's in list form. What I recommend, is that it is shown what the highest ranking answer is.

If I were to see a question with very few votes on an answer than I would be more like to go into that question and either, vote up questions that I feel do answer the question, or, write my own answer.

I disagree for one simple reason: The highest ranking answer is not always helpful, the right one or a good written answer. I don't see how this would do any good. You should also look at questions based on their topic (you might learn something new, or you can add something of value despite a high-upvoted answer), not on their already added answers.
