Looking at the answers on a recently closed CW post about applications of pure math, I noticed that the answers were ordered by time posted, and not votes. Is this a new change? Is there a way to choose the ordering?

Look just above the first answer. There are three tabs to order the posts by 'active', 'oldest', and 'votes.' Your selection is sticky so you may have inadvertently changed the ordering of that post. The wiki state should have no effect on the sort order.
