    Why do the questions on this site not stay in the order as received???

    I find the questions from weeks ago on the first few pages along with new questions. Surely it would make sense to put them in order of their receipt? This would mean not having to go through endless "old questions" looking for current ones thus getting answers and comments out faster for these new ones. I also feel the questions along with answers should be deleted after 14 days so we do not have hundreds of pages as it appears is happening. But that is me more importantly what do YOU think?

    Anytime a question is answered or edited, it automatically jumps to the top of the front page so the views are based on the most recent activity. Even if you answer a question from March, it will come back to the front page! You'll notice in the lower right hand corner of each question thread is the last time it was active.

    Then I'll appreciate your brain activity now while you have it and your pretty face later ; )

    Good question PEOPLELOVER, Maybe ask administration? t.u. to you for noticing, I'm sure most people don't really know the answer to this one.

    Does it have anything to do with the number of views each question receives?
