Order of posting "delayed" questions should be changed. Answered

When questions are delayed posting for whatever reason, they should not be posted in order based on the time they were asked, they should be posted to the top of the list.

At least once a week I find a question of a gob of questions way back on page 3 or 4 that have no answers and sometimes have no views.  There are at least a dozen people here who look at every question, even the "boring ones".  There is no way a question posted at the top of the list can make it to page 3 with out even a look.   The way is works now if a question gets held up 24 hours (and that happens alot) it goes directly to page 2.

It would work better if when the question gets posted it goes to the top of the list even if it takes a week to post it.

Just my opinion.

We hear you and you've got a good point.  We'll try to get more of the delayed questions sent to the top of the recent list. 

Thanks for being such a helpful part of the community with regards to rocking it on questions and sharing your thoughtful feedback about how the site works.

Keep it coming,
Noah

 A valid opinion, the same is true for both forum topics and instructables, however they are often 'bumped up' by the staff if they get stuck in the filters.

I am sure that it is on the list of items needing fixing. Thanks for posting as a bug report either way.
