Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

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

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.
