Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

Update 2:

This issue seems to be solved now although I would like to know what the problem was.


I thought the results are sorted by the number of votes of the question. But now I encountered this:

When I search for example jquery variable name, the last results on the first page have these votes:


enter image description here


Whereas the top results on page two are:


enter image description here


What is going on here? Seems like a bug to me or did I miss something (again) on meta?


Update:

What is the status of this? I would like to hear something like ok we will take a look at it or this is by design.

Or is it not a problem at all? For me the behaviour is very unintuitive.

This was indeed a bug -- artifact of the switch to Lucene.NET for search results:
