This morning there was this question on the front page of meta. Now, just a couple of hours later, it's not there. Why did it disappear from the front page? Is it because of the number of downvotes? I can't recall ever noticing this kind of thing before.
Okay, so here's what I'm seeing. When you click on the main page, it's gone. But I always sort by Questions>Active and it shows up there. I'm on Chrome, for what it's worth.
Update: We've tested with this question (apologies to whoever that was), and it appears that 8 downvotes is the threshold for removing it from the main page, but not the "Active Questions" page. I have screenshots of the whole thing.
