#4828 closed Bug (wontfix)

Sort order for activity is backwards

Description

I believe the order things get sorted when sorting by activity is backwards. If you have it set to sort by activity ascending it shows the most active things at the top, and the opposite for descending.

If you sort a list of numbers 0-9 in ascending order, 9 is at the bottom, not the top. The opposite is true for descending.

I can see this was purposefully done in the source, it specifically sets the order to !asc but that doesn't seem correct.

Unfortunately activity is more a discrete set of values, so it doesn't lend itself well to ascending/descending. I don't think either way being called ascending has any true meaning/benefit, so I'm going to lean on the side of not changing long-existing behavior.

Exactly, it has been wrong for a long time.

I don't suppose I'll be changing your mind, but I think it should at least be telling that it is backwards by the fact that the other sorts just use asc, while activity uses !asc. It is literally saying, do the opposite of what the person selects and expects ascending to do.
