I just realized that answers that have 0 scores are ordered before other answers that have one or more votes. Is this a new feature to promote new answers or a bug?

    @InfiniteRecursion I think it was a good lesson, and you deserve the repz. – totymedli Nov 9 '14 at 17:40

    @totymedli you probably misclicked at some point without noticing, the selection is permanent, so it's really not trivial. Happens to the best! :) – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Nov 9 '14 at 14:23
  • @ShadowWizard Now I look like a noob (._. ) and I can't even wash away this shame from my questions list with a delete button. – totymedli Nov 9 '14 at 14:24
  • Well this is a dupe after all so you can flag for mod attention, @totymedli, and they might agree to delete if you really want. (or ProgramFOX can simply delete the answer, giving up the repz, then you can delete yourself) – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Nov 9 '14 at 14:28
  • @ShadowWizard I don't want to takeway his repz. The misfortune of one is the luck of the other. – totymedli Nov 9 '14 at 14:29
  • @ShadowWizard I'm not able to because my answer is accepted. It's now up to totymedli whether they unaccept my answer or keep it. – ProgramFOX Nov 9 '14 at 14:31

    @ProgramFOX It was a good lesson. But your and InfiniteRecursion's attitude on placing the community before your rep and your kindness is a honor for me, so thanks! – totymedli Nov 9 '14 at 17:52
