Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

When I go to my user page and click on one of the tags, I get a search result for all questions/answers I've written for that tag. But they're sorted "oldest first" by default.

Example: http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=user:291741+[java]

The tab that's selected by default is "relevance", and I don't think, that the oldest questions are most relevant - are they?

I don't like that default very much, because if someone searches for the answers/questions of a user about a specific tag (which a potential employer might want to do for example), they primarily find their very first posts - which are often not as good as they could be...

So I would recommend to either reverse the sort order, or to set the "newest" tab as default.

Technically they are sorted by relevance. But it seems there may be something wrong with the sorting. – jjnguy Nov 5 '10 at 14:19
