I see that answers are sorted by giving priority to the "accepted" flag on this meta, unlike on the main site. While this makes sense for stuff like [tech-like] requests, it makes a lot less sense for the which are often policy proposals or questions on the interpretation thereof.

So, should answer-sorting order be changed on this meta too, to give priority only to votes, like it is on the main site, if it's technically feasible?

    I added the featured tag to this post (I had to removed the answers tag to make room for it), so that more users could see it an weigh in on the discussion. I will circle back in a few weeks to assess the feedback on this post and move forward from there.

I think this is a good idea, and the answer sorting should be accepted-answer agnostic as on the main politics site. This should be technically feasible, see this question on Meta.SE:

Site settings are per-site and child metas are also considered a "site".

It seems we will need to establish a community consensus on this as we did for the main site (vote accordingly on this answer or add your own if you disagree). If an affirmative consensus is reached I will this question for the CM's attention to implement.


Thanks for your patience in getting this change enacted here. I've changed the site setting for this Meta site for you as of just now. If at some point in the future you want to go back to pinning accepted answers, please start a new meta discussion about it and flag it for our attention with the tag.
