That is the order the Oceans are appearing on the forum. My small need for order finds this unnerving.

Before anyone complains, this is just a wee nit-pick not a major thing.
Thanks

It's very orderly: chronologically, rather than alphabetically.

The average age of Meridian oceans is like ~4.25 years. The average age of the Emerald oceans is ~5.5 years. Viridian predates Sage by 6 months. Hunter predates Malachite by 3 years. Alphabetical ordering would have the benefit of being chronologically ordered, also. (My math is definitely off but the general point remains).

While we're talking about forum stuff - can we get the old subforums locked?

Ok, then why did Cobalt appear before Midnight on the old Forums when Midnight, chronologically exisisted before Cobalt?
It was always alphabetically so dont say otherwise.

The oceans have always been listed in order of quality. Nothing has changed.

Emerald sends a war declaration to Cerulean.

Ordered chronologically, as in let the elderly find their ocean first up at top. You don't get much real estate when you jack it up to 72pt font.

The oceans were listed in groups and then Chronological, before the merges we had

Subscription oceans:
    Midnight
    Cobalt


Dubloon oceans:
    Viridian
    Sage
    Hunter
    Malachite


Since the Merge we now have Cerulean, Meridian & Emerald. The oldest ocean of each is Midnight, Viridian and Sage respectively, which puts them in order.

Actually, they were in alphabetical order before... as shown by the order they're locked in.

I was referring to the ocean selection screen within the client window, sorry.

I was wondering if any one noticed that, too. Darn obsessive need for things to be orderly.
