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

Response order (read: I like rep points)

If you refresh a question whose answers have equal votes, the answers will appear in a different order.

Is this order explicitly randomly generated? Or does it just have to do with some sort of race condition in loading the page?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This has to be a dupe, from like thirty times over – jcolebrand Jun 29 '11 at 4:57

It's deliberately random to prevent voting bias.

My voting bias is to upvote a randomly-chosen answer. – Josh Caswell Jun 29 '11 at 5:54
