On the profile page there is a sort list for followed proposals. What is sort by Votes? Should it be renamed to Progress or Followed?

Edit: I fixed profile tab to be profile page. (sorry) and added this screenshot

where do you see this? You mention the profile tab but I can't work out what you mean. –  Wikis Jan 13 '11 at 19:28
    
    
I will add a screenshot –  George Bailey Jan 13 '11 at 19:43
    
thanks. First, love the picture! I think that "votes" sorts the proposals based on the total number of votes the example questions have received. –  Wikis Jan 13 '11 at 19:56

Errm, it's a legacy holdover from the Q&A sites. In this case, it's sorting proposals by number of followers, which isn't very useful. I've replaced it with a "progress" option, to sort by total progress of the proposal.

Thanks for pointing this out!

I think that "votes" sorts the proposals based on the total number of votes the example questions have received.

So if proposal A has 2 questions each with 3 votes (say 2 on topic and 1 off topic) that is 6 votes total. If B has 1 question with 5 votes, then A is listed before B.
