I was looking at my tags list today and thought that if it was extremely long I might like to find them to view their corresponding questions.

Is there a way to sort your favorite tags yourself, most votes, most questions in that area, etc?

@AaronBertrand Thanks for the edit! Apparently I don't know the differences between their, there, and they're. –  Nate-Wilkins Sep 27 '12 at 1:01
no worries, it's a common mistake. I catch myself sometimes too - I seem to be better at spotting it when someone else has done it. –  Aaron Bertrand Sep 27 '12 at 1:02
So very true, thanks –  Nate-Wilkins Sep 27 '12 at 1:04
This could be a fun little stackapps project for somebody, easily doable as a browser extension, Greasemonkey script, Google Chrome user script, etc. –  hippietrail Sep 27 '12 at 3:30
Huh, good idea I might take this upon consideration. Thanks –  Nate-Wilkins Sep 27 '12 at 10:15
I came here looking for similar functionality - I'm interested in drag/drop to re-sort the favorite tags list. I may start work on a userscript for it. –  Michael Berkowski Jan 2 '13 at 1:08
@meta.michael I haven't started work on it, if you do let me know how it works out? –  Nate-Wilkins Jan 15 '13 at 16:25
@Nate Actually, I'm just finishing it up. I have it in github but not yet on stackapps.com. The Chrome extension version is more polished than the Firefox userscript... github.com/mberkowski/se-sortable-tags –  Michael Berkowski Jan 15 '13 at 16:27
@Nate It isn't too well tested yet, but when I feel better about it I'll post to stackapps. –  Michael Berkowski Jan 15 '13 at 16:28
@meta.michael ah aright I'll take a look at it. Will let you know if I find any bugs –  Nate-Wilkins Jan 15 '13 at 16:32
@meta.michael It's really nice, only thing I found I couldn't do was edit the order under preferences on my profile page. –  Nate-Wilkins Jan 15 '13 at 17:32
@Nate Honestly I didn't even know that was there. I can't remember going to that prefs page since I joined SE years ago. If you're using the Chrome version, I just pushed a new manifest.json to github which enables it for /users/preferences* –  Michael Berkowski Jan 15 '13 at 17:39
@meta.michael Yea I just remembered it was there! When you do post this to stackapps you can also post an answer to this to link them up. –  Nate-Wilkins Jan 15 '13 at 18:41
@J0e3gan I never did get it onto SA, owing to the fact that shortly after I completed it, they made modifications to the tag lists which include some of my functionality (the delete button hiding, but not the sorting). when I get time, I'll update my extension to work with it... –  Michael Berkowski Apr 24 '13 at 13:46
