Now that the ability to sort suggested taxa alphabetically has been implemented in Compare/Suggestions, I find myself using that option almost exclusively. The Taxonomy sort option still has some utility for grouping closely related things together in a long list of suggestions. But the current “default” sort order seems entirely meaningless to the user, just reflecting the “raw” unsorted order of taxa within iNaturalist. (Correct me if I am missing something there…)
My request is to:
- eliminate the current “default” option and label, and
- make “Scientific Name” the initial default sort whenever the modal is opened, while retaining “Taxonomy” as the other sorting option.
