Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

So I popped into my profile this morning to check why certain numbers were changing. I did find that out... but in the process, I noticed something funny. My questions were apparently raised to votes power. Unsure where that came from, I saw "votes" was no longer a sort option, so I decided to change to Newest to see if this was just an in-progress marker for the current sort. It didn't take.

I have a limitted test assortment here, but it occurs on IE8 but not the latest FireFox. I did fix my sort by popping into FF on another machine. A check on Welbog, the topmost user in the questions list to a not-logged-in-user-at-the-time, showed that the problem in IE8 was present on that computer as well. This only happens on meta, does not appear to occur in the other 3 sites.

How did it even get there?

Oops, I made a typo and there was an extra ". Only IE8 seemed to care.

Yay! Thanks Jeff! Quite a quick fix there. – Grace Note Apr 29 '10 at 12:54
Stupid IE 8 not liking your code. Why can't it be smart like Chrome? – Randolpho Apr 29 '10 at 16:28
