Unless Im mistaken, answers to questions appear in reverse chronological order, with newer answers being first in the list.
Ive always felt that the accepted answer should be listed first and then descending by the highest number of votes. Isnt the purpose to find the answer, or best possible answers?
If I was a new person Googling a problem and came across this site, as it had my question, I wouldnt want to sift through a variety of answers, which can range from wrong to poor. I would expect the best answers at the top.
Just my opinion. Thoughts?
