I'm trying to help with the effort in Close all the typo questions. Is there a way that order the results of a search to have oldest-close-votes (those nearest to expiring) at the top of the results? Or is there a way to add number of close votes to the search critera?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
We do not index the number of close votes on a question (nor would how we store them trigger a re-index), so no...sorting by this isn't possible. You would need to use Stack Exchange Data Explorer or our public data dump to perform such a query.
To show oldest results first use Order By in Query. Like...
See the last line Order By a.ID Desc
