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

I wonder if the order rule of newest question has changed.

I remember seeing questions in Newest is ordered by the ask time, but today in the tag, the questions look very strange. There are questions asked two month ago on the second page and other questions are very old.

I refreshed many times. Did the order change or did I set something to make this happen?

second page

third page

Hrm, yeah, I see questions over a year old on the 2nd page. That's odd. – Adam Lear Dec 17 '12 at 2:54
@AnnaLear you see that too?I have refresh so many times I thought it's my qustion.>>>>>_<<<<<< – Winnie Dec 17 '12 at 2:58
The questions shown in the second page are out of order; in the third page, I see questions asked about 15 hours ago. Something is wrong. Should not this a bug report? – kiamlaluno Dec 17 '12 at 3:28
@kiamlaluno It is now. :P – Adam Lear Dec 17 '12 at 3:29
look I found a bug – Winnie Dec 17 '12 at 6:10
Something is up; I can't repro that, but there should be 40+ pages of this month alone. Pulling a copy locally, then I'll reset the system. – Marc Gravell Dec 17 '12 at 7:27
Resetting that part of the system has fixed the symptom, but I'll try to find what went wrong. – Marc Gravell Dec 17 '12 at 7:47
@MarcGravell hum…… not understand what's your word mean,but glad to see it's OK now. – Winnie Dec 17 '12 at 7:54
@Winnie fair enough ;p But if you really want to know, we have a separate subsystem designed to handle "by tag / combination-of-tag" requests, that isn't the main RDBMS. Sometimes it gets confused. – Marc Gravell Dec 17 '12 at 9:29
@MarcGravell oh I see,so you can operate the Stack website,that's cool. – Winnie Dec 18 '12 at 5:36
@Winnie, yes I'm part of the dev team here. – Marc Gravell Dec 18 '12 at 12:32
