A question that I answered earlier today is mysteriously absent from the Top Questions list when I visit the site. However, if I search for the question using keywords, and click the "Newest" tab, it appears right where it should be. I am not familiar with this behavior -- is it normal? I do see that the question currently has a vote score of -4 and one close vote, but I don't know if that accounts for what I am (not) seeing.

  • $\begingroup$ I think questions with total score less than -3 are not shown on the Top Questions list. $\endgroup$ – Joel Reyes Noche Mar 10 '18 at 3:13
  • $\begingroup$ This is true, however, I have not found any official documentation stating this. Perhaps the moderators know. $\endgroup$ – Joel Reyes Noche Mar 10 '18 at 3:43
  • $\begingroup$ @JoelReyesNoche Perhaps you can look on Meta Stack Exchange to find some statement and otherwise ask that question there. There is quite some behaviour of SE that is only 'documented' as a meta Q and A. $\endgroup$ – Discrete lizard Mar 12 '18 at 11:39
