What is the all time top Question in Stack Overflow in terms of maximum votes? I am interested to know the top questions (say top 100) by maximum votes, answers, and views. Besides learning from them, I want to study the correlation between these questions. How can I get them ? I am aware that Stack Overflow gives Top Questions by interesting, featured, hot, week, and month but not by maximum votes, answers, and views. Any suggestions ?

Currently, it is Why is processing a sorted array faster than an unsorted array?. In the future, to find out what the top voted question is, just sort the question list by votes (www.stackoverflow.com/questions?sort=votes).

It kind of depends!The link you have been provided will show you the most upvoted question in tags that you do not have ignored. For me, because I have a bunch of tags including it's The definitive guide to forms based website authentication but your milage may vary.
