PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

I think that the newest answer should stay up in front for awhile

So like if I answered on a question like this http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/23/what-are-some-of-the-best-move-combos-in-pokemon-you-have-found?show=91001#a91001 then not many people would think to go all the way to the last page to see the new post.
I know you bump the question all the way up to the top but that still wont get your question seen all the time.
I think that the new posts should stay in the top for the first day or so it can still get seen and get votes.

I don't see much of a problem at all. If you go the PokeBase or Recent Activity, new answers can be seen, even if the question is years old. People go to Recent Activity frequently, so they are likely to see the new answer and vote it up if they must. Just because a new post isn't getting votes, doesn't mean people haven't seen it.

I see the problem. But the way the site is designed, you go to a question and immediately see the best answers right at the top. If I did what you are suggesting then you might see a crappy or incorrect answer up there.

Also, 99% of our questions only have a few answers, so this wouldn't make a difference for those. It's only really the moveset questions.

Note that when you see one of those questions in the list you can click where it says "answered by" and that will take you straight to that answer so you don't need to go through all of them.
