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 understand sorting the page by created date for development, but it's not really useful now that the list (at least on Stack Overflow) is getting long.

I suggest sorting the list by Target tag, to make the information shown much more useful. This will make finding synonyms by browsing easier, and also group together all the synonyms for a given target tag (which is the most important thing).

Presumably, this would be an easy thing to change on the back end.

Meh, changing the sort listing was trivial.

The nicer change is that now we display a count on the source if it's more than one, AND we show the fact that it's a pending synonym if less than 3 people voted for it. That is the less meh change :)

The count on the source is an awesome idea. That makes it much easier for us to see which ones need retags. – Bill the Lizard Jul 23 '10 at 16:08
