Could we have an alphabetic sort option for tags?
During my effort at building structure and content in the EE.CD tags pages, I found myself often wanting a way to list all the tags in alphabetic order, regardless of their status or their place in the hierarchy.
This is useful for a curator to see if some concept you have in mind already has a tag, but it is also useful for a person in the process of choosing a tag for a question. Yes, you can use the search, but there is the risk of performing the wrong search. Somehow I feel that having the plain old list is more useful for sequential searching.
It is true that usually one relies on the tag suggestions in the tag input field, but it may be a little confusing, especially if a hierarchy is in place. It is indeed very good that tag suggestions also consider the synonyms, but the presentation could be cluttered at times.
I suggest to add an additional button
alphabetical to tags pages, maybe with a checkbox (somewhere below?) titled something like
include synonyms, so that someone can see all the tags and, if they so desire, synonyms.
