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

Whoa, something must have gone seriously wrong here (in terms of answer ordering). Or did I miss something?

It looks like you're probably viewing the answers sorted by post time, per the "oldest" tab. I guess you were expecting to see the "votes" tab view.

Note that like the sorting tabs on tag pages, the tab selection for answers is preserved across page views, so if you switched to the oldest tab on a another question that view choice would have carried over.
