"Sort by score" vs "Sort by most votes"

What is "sort by score" using to sort? And is "sort by most votes" broken?


When I view feature ideas and "Sort by most votes," I get a message that says, "There is no content matching the filters that you have selected."

I thought "sort by score" would accomplish the same task, but when I paged through my results, it was obvious that "score" involves more than just votes. The vote totals start high on page 1 of results, descend to zero by page 6, jump back up to 64 on page 7, descend back to zero by page 12, jump to 57 on page 13.
