Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Since questions are merely the sand that produces the pearl and the trend is to optimize by pearls and not sand, should the sorting by Votes on Questions on the main page reflect this ?

The facts:

  1. Questions are not voted
  2. Answers are the real value of SE

Should the order by votes on the Question tab, consider not just the votes on the questions but also the average votes of the relative answers?

@slugster - I don't think this is for viewing answers on a particular question but for viewing questions on the main page – ChrisF Jun 21 '11 at 11:07
@Chris - yep i misread it. I like it even less now. – slugster Jun 21 '11 at 13:08

Is the Question tab there to:

  • Find questions to answer (that are well writen)
  • Find questions/answers that are worth reading

Once we know, then we can decide how it is sorted.
