I just saw a few questions where the accepted answer was not the top answer when sorting by votes. I think that was always the case a few days ago.

Did the sorting system change?

  • It's not new that accepted self-answers aren't pinned.

  • Oh, you're right. The examples I looked at were self-answers. Nov 6, 2017 at 10:25
  • Correct, that's the case, I just didn't notice it. Nov 6, 2017 at 10:31
  • That's not trivial, this is valid support question. (in response to downvotes) Nov 6, 2017 at 15:55

The examples I looked at were self-answers that don't get pinned to the top.

This was also the case earlier, I just happened to see a few of those cases in a row.
