Welcome to Codidact Meta!
Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.
Communities drop-down/switcher upgrades
The communities "drop-down"/"switcher" menu next to the user profile could do with a few tweaks. The communities appearing there are sorted after order of community creation. That is: Writing, Codidact Meta, The Great Outdoors, ... This is a strange default order.
For searchability, it would make more sense if communities were displayed in alphabetic order.
For user-friendliness, it would make sense if the communities where the user is most active are those appearing on top. I don't think we need to over-engineer some sort of automatic identification system for this, but perhaps just give the users the possibility to customize the order (as seen Somewhere Else).
Similarly, the communities from https://codidact.com/ are also displayed in a strange order - not necessarily random(?) but based on activity or such? This also ought to be in alphabetic order.
Grouping based on some subjective evaluation about which community content that is more closely related to other communities (i.e Mathematics is close to Physics is close to Electrical Engineering...) is bound to get fuzzy and based on subjective opinions, so I would advise against that.
Perhaps with the exceptions of Codidact Meta and Codidact Proposals, that we might allow to get special status: as in always placed first/last in the list.
