Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Find as you type user feature always sorts on name. I find it a bit confusing that the sort order is swapped without me asking for it.

If I am sorting on popularity it should also sort on popularity.

For an added bonus, when the user filter box is cleared, the paging numbers should re-appear as well.

Am not seeing it, what's the irony? – random Dec 1 '09 at 23:26
But you created that other page at the same time, copy-pasting. How is it an ironic dupe when you deliberately cross-post? – random Dec 1 '09 at 23:49
Okay, but what's the funny part? Is it that you're having the same thing on another site and posted them at the same time when you realised it was happening here as well? Where is JokeExplainer when you need them? – random Dec 1 '09 at 23:59
So you're saying this is more of a waffle type situation than a funny one? – random Dec 2 '09 at 0:14
The same problem exists on the tags page too. – Dan Dyer Sep 12 '10 at 22:51
The Tags page had this too, was fixed, but now both Tags and Users always sort alphabetically. – Rebecca Chernoff Oct 8 '10 at 4:43

Just deployed this, its been bothering me for ages.

It doesn't seem to be working: – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 8 '10 at 8:54
Not only the sort order is broken, but some matches aren't showing. For example, if you type NullU it will only show one user (me). There is actually a user whose nick is NullUser – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 8 '10 at 9:09
@null exact matches are always pushed to the front what's the user id of this user – waffles Oct 8 '10 at 9:27
@waffles, compare newest and oldest with a filter of Jo here on MSO. – Rebecca Chernoff Oct 8 '10 at 12:26
@waffles This: Also I should be the first non-exact match for "Null" when sorting by rep. – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 8 '10 at 13:58
waffles, is SEDE getting updated any time soon? – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 8 '10 at 14:00
