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

I want whenever I'll open my profile my asked and answered questions should be sorted "Recent" by default, it is currently sorted on the basis of VOTES.

Is there anything I can do this, or this is a pending feature from SO :) If its pending then I request SO team to add this whenever possible :)

Seconded. And to get to 15 characters, seconded again. – Ravish Sep 12 '09 at 3:36

I think it would be nice if the system remembered my last selected sort. It does this with answers in a question page.

I think this is an excellent suggestion. If I go to my profile page I would like it to default to the last view I used(recent,newest,votes etc). It should probably default to votes for other users, but it would save many clicks of the recent button. – Axxmasterr Aug 12 '09 at 17:06
It occurs to me also that some of the high load on SO is due to pages having to be reloaded for sort selection. – Robert Harvey Aug 12 '09 at 22:00

Auto-sort Profile Questions by Date...

The following greasemonkey-script will auto-sort profile-questions by date (giving most recent first)

  function GM_wait() {
    if(typeof unsafeWindow.jQuery == 'undefined') { 
    } else { 
      $ = unsafeWindow.jQuery; letsJQuery(); 
  function letsJQuery() {
    if ($(".tabs-question-user a:eq(3)").html() == "recent") {
    	$.post($(".tabs-question-user a:eq(3)").attr("href"), function(data){

While that's cool, I don't think that's what the OP wanted. – Kyle Cronin Jul 9 '09 at 15:34
Oops. You're right, Kyle. The script has been fixed. – Sampson Jul 9 '09 at 15:54

Although I don't see any problem with this as a request, I do not see any real pressing need why it should be ASAP. I don't think hitting the preferred sort style every time you view the page is too much of a difficulty right now that can't wait for a while.

Ya right ASAP is not required. Edited the post, I am just pointing the problem which I face. Recent activity is normally required, what's the use of displaying highest voted question first ? If I have recent activity then I can see that is there any new answer or comment on ma question. – Prashant Jul 9 '09 at 15:02
