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 stack overflow the questions in my profile are ordered by asking date (which I like) with the most recently asked question first, but on other stack exchange sites, (e.g. AskUbuntu ) the questions that I've asked (as listed in my profile) are ordered by the number of upvotes. I find this annoying because the most recently asked question appears at the bottom of the list which ends up being on the next page. Is there some profile option that I've missed?

I think the default is to order by votes, which is why you see that on most sites. At some point in the past you probably clicked one of the other sort tabs on SO:

The site will remember the last sort you used, and use it in the future automatically
