Right now the members page sorts members alphabetically. I think the default sorting should be changed to something different, such as post count.
There are two reasons behind this:
1) When someone clicks that tab, they want to get to a member's profile. They are much more likely to want to get to a member who has a high post count than a member who has a 1 or an A as the first character for their name.
2) Google (and other search engines) assigns that first page of members a high quality score. It's linked to from every page of our forum. I'd rather have that page with high pagerank pointing to the member profiles of valuable members rather than the profiles of inactive members who appear there because of their usernames.
This fell down to the bottom of the page and I don't know if I'm allowed to bump or not :/ but I don't think anyone is against this and it would help users and search engines.
Yes I'm bumping this but I'm not ashamed of it, as this does really makes sense and should be taken into consideration by IPB :)
