Quote from: NocturneOfShadow on February 13, 2015, 12:52:55 PMYou're not supposed to use "The" when alphabetizing though
it's common knowledge
since all the titles start with The it shouldn't make any difference.

what are you doing stop making nsm a better place by spreading happiness


Legend of Zelda is the last main title on the list when it should be between Kirby and Mega Man.

And while every title does start with "The Legend of Zelda" (with the exception of Tingle, CDI zelda, and Zelda II), some subtitles also contain "The", such as Minish Cap and Wind Waker, and ALBW/ALTTP both use "A" for their alphabetization.  It's not a big deal for me now that they're chrono, but it still ought to be fixed for propriety.  The Minish Cap and The Wind Waker both come right before Twilight Princess when Wind Waker should be after it and Minish Cap should be after Majora's Mask.  ALBW/LTTP should both be before link's awakening.

Just an update on this. So I finally worked out what the problem is (ugh it's messy). Now we've just gotta work out how to fix it.

Awesome. Can't wait!

After many, many hours and much blood, sweat and tears, it's all fixed.



So I'd like people to respond to this post so I can get some opinions on this.

The new sorting system is great but in my opinion it is counter-intuitive, here's why:

The logic right now is that when you click the up arrow for chronologicall, it means ascending and that's why you see them in order of oldest to newest.

My logic is that when I click an up arrow, the games should be sorted from oldest to newest in the direction the arrow points

So if I click the up arrow in TLoZ, I naturally expect ALBW to be at the top!

likewise, if you go to the Other section (more entries beginning with varying letters) and click the alphabetical down arrow, you'd expect to see A, B, C, D, etc... because The alphabet will go from A>Z following the direction of the arrow, however Xenoblade will pop up as the first entry.

I want your opinions, did it take you a while to get used to? Personally I tried to give it a chance and I still can't get the current logic to become muscle memory, as I click the wrong button every time.

Do you think the sorting arrows should be swapped?


it made sense to me

then again I like inverting y-axes so who knows
