Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Now that the "all sites" button on the StackExchange page lists 65 sites (even though the side column still says only 63), wouldn't it be useful to let the "sort by" control also sort by site name (not just oldest, newest, traffic, etc)?

I happened to browse backwards to the page, knowing I wanted to click the Home Improvement site title, and it took me forever to scroll up and down trying to pick it out (probably blind from too much sugar). It would have been a lot easier if I could have sorted by title, then scrolled right to the "H" sites.

Ohhh I like the little animation when they sort too – Ben Brocka May 24 '12 at 21:28

Why don't you use the "type to find sites" field at the top of the page there?

Just type "hom" and you're practically there..

That is a workaround. Are you closing this ticket as WONTFIX or just providing a way to get around it? Sorting alphabetically would be extremely useful, just for browsing. – dgw Sep 14 '11 at 4:39
Because I never even noticed that control on the page. In any case, I see that sorting by name is now available... – Witness Protection ID 44583292 May 24 '12 at 21:20
