For the Ideas Forum, the default sort should be By date.
This would expose users to the newest Ideas when they first enter the forum.
The current default sort is By score, which reduces the exposure of new Ideas to users. It probably also tends to skew the scores accordingly.
Hi Ron, thanks for the feedback. Is suspect there are arguments for both ways, but it is possible to change this default. I will discuss this internally with my colleagues.

After discussing this with my colleagues, we agree with your idea and the reasoning behind it. The change has been made and is now live on the site.
Thank you again for your valuable feedback.
It looks like the default sort order is now set to By Highest Score.
That means the new ideas go to the bottom of the list immediately.
Why the change?
Hi Ron, sorry, I was away on vacation last week. I am not sure why this changed, but I suspect it was related to an upgrade we had a few weeks ago. We will look into this.
