What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I was rather surprised to discover somebody already brought up this exact thing and it was marked as complete. Jeff said:

for mods and pseudo-mods (10k rep users) we now sort deleted answers to the bottom. All other user classes are unaffected.

I assume by "unaffected" he means "they can't see deleted answers, so we don't even check". This isn't completely true -- I can see my own deleted answers, and they get shuffled with the other zero-vote answers. Shouldn't they be dropped to the bottom for all users, not just mods?

The intent of this feature is to help mods, for whom all deleted posts are visible.

I'd say it is as-designed for your deleted posts to show up in the standard order, since they are only visible to you (and mods, etc).

But shouldn't it be the fact that they're deleted that pushes them to the bottom? Regardless of who might view them, they are deleted and therefore less important than non-deleted answers. –  GManNickG Jun 2 '10 at 4:47
