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 you probably misclicked at some point without noticing, the selection is permanent, so it's really not trivial. Happens to the best! :) Nov 9, 2014 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.

  • 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) Nov 9, 2014 at 14:28
  • @ShadowWizard I don't want to takeway his repz. The misfortune of one is the luck of the other.

  • @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 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!
