A question that I couldn't find an answer to...
If someone posts an answer to a question, and someone else follows by posting a similar answer, the newest post will be on top, until one of the posts gets voted up, at which point the votes then determine the order. However, if both answers have zero votes, I feel that the first one should have priority/be listed first? This way the first correct answer is more likely to get votes/feedback.
This happened in this post. Evan posted after me, but his answer was on the top when we both had zero votes. Obviously, people saw Evan's post (which is the correct answer) and gave it move votes than mine (which is also the same/correct answer). If mine were on top, it would have received the majority of the votes.
Obviously it's not a huge deal, and the reputation doesn't matter that much, but it does seem to be a bit of an oddity in an otherwise fair system. Thoughts? Or am I missing something?
