The order of duplicates is different between apps and web. E.g.:



  • App Version:
  • Device: Unknown (iPad7,3)
  • OS Version: Version 12.2 (Build 16E227)



  • App Version: 1.0.95
  • Device Manufacturer: LGE
  • Device Model: LM-G710
  • OS Version: 8.0.0 (190492326deb8.FGN)



  • Most of the queries don't have an explicit order by clause so it is left to the database to come up with one. It would be interesting to learn if the same queries are run here and if so, why their are ordered differently. – rene Apr 16 '19 at 11:28
  • @rene the order of duplicates can be modified by mods or by gold-tag-badge owners – αλεχολυτ Apr 16 '19 at 11:32
  • It seems like the apps order them by question IDs, with lower ones first. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Apr 16 '19 at 11:46
  • @αλεχολυτ as a gold badge holder I can modify the duplicates, not its order (unless you mean by removing and re-adding them. – rene Apr 16 '19 at 11:54
  • @rene actually we can also edit the order by dragging each item, and it then save the new order. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Apr 16 '19 at 12:15
  • @ShadowWizard I never used that. Pretty cool – rene Apr 16 '19 at 12:26
  • @rene I know! I'm almost sure that after editing the order and saving, the apps will show it correctly, need to test it somehow. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Apr 16 '19 at 12:38
  • @ShadowWizard only for mouse-compatible devices. Created an FR/BUG – αλεχολυτ Apr 16 '19 at 17:51

I'm gonna call this . Or possibly , depending on how you look at it.

We are not currently in a position to make any changes to the mobile apps, and in the grand scheme of things I don't think this difference in the ordering matters that much.
