What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

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:

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:
