I noticed this just today, and it's quite annoying. My hand's muscle memory automatically moves the mouse to a particular tag that I frequent (which used to be at the top), but it now lands on something else...

Was this change planned? Is this going to be accompanied with the ability to re-order/move around favourites?

Ugh. I had [c#], [mvvm], [wpf] and [xaml] together — now they're all over the place. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 16 '11 at 8:20

I changed the backend storage for tags, it used to be stored in a blob and now is stored in a table.

The new table does not maintain ordering in any way.

I can add back this functionality if it is considered critical.

Scratch that, I have a fix in the pipeline for this. Will be deployed today.

well, it's not critical for me, but I've gotten used to having them at a certain position on the page for a while that it's confusing. Granted it only takes a few days to get used to, but as BoltClock mentioned above, some people might have ordered it logically for other reasons... – Lorem Ipsum Jun 16 '11 at 8:29
It would be even nicer if favorite tags could be reordered explicitly. – starblue Jun 16 '11 at 8:41
@starblue Post that as a feature request and I'll upvote it 100 times (once with each shiny sock-pupet) – belisarius has settled Jun 17 '11 at 3:26
