-tagged questions should be sorted newest to oldest by default. It is disorienting to see them out of order because they are sorted highest to lowest votes. Agreed?

• So the answers I should be looking at would be on the last page? That's the opposite of helpful. Apr 29 '17 at 20:13
• @Dennis I meant newest. Fixed.

• Newest would be nice for this. Unfortunately, that option doesn't even exist at this point. The closest match is active, but if an answer is edited, it still disturbs the order. Apr 29 '17 at 20:19
• @Dennis opposite of helpful, and the only foolproof alternative, unless SE decides to add a newest option. Sorting by votes or activity is shooting yourself in the foot. What if the answers number 7,8,9 are edited after number 10 is posted. (I know you know this, but I'd just mention it in the comments anyway). Sorting by oldest is basically the only way unfortunately. Luckily it's possible to jump to the last page with answers, and scroll to the bottom quite easily. Apr 29 '17 at 21:42
• @Dennis Actually that's not the opposite of helpful, it's easy to go to the last page, and then you just scroll down. If you have >=2k rep, then there is a different method: search for inquestion:<question_id> (inquestion:<question_id> is:a if you want to filter the question itself out) and sort by newest. Click the 1st result. Apr 30 '17 at 10:12
• As per how PPCG works, I would advise that, in general, you sort answers by active just so everyone's answer gets roughly equal exposure Apr 30 '17 at 12:19
• I am marking this as status-deferred because this would be nice, but likely won't happen, at least not soon, due to requiring dev work. This will likely become status-declined sometime in the future.
