Sorting Order for Countries on Maps tab in Profile Stats

Currenlty it seems 'countries' in the Maps tab are sorted on most finds in a 'region', rather then on total finds per country ... It seems more logical to sort on total finds per country.

Example : I found 327 caches in Germany (from which 98 in region Rheinland-Pfalz) and I only found 188 caches in the UK (from which 187 were in the Sout East England region), so the UK is currently listed before Germany on this tab.

So *that's* how the order of maps is determined.  

Although it seems that this sort is not 100% accurate either.  For some reason Jersey is at the bottom of my list, even though I have two finds in one of the regions there - which would put it a few positions higher on the list.

I do not observe that. For me, the sorting is truly per the total finds per country. I have 4889 finds in Switzerland, 1500 of which are in the canton of Zürich, and Switzerland is listed in front of Germany correctly (4129 total, 2199 of which in Baden-Württemberg).

I think what you mean is not the order the countries are listed under the World/Europe map, it's the way the individual country maps are listed, is that correct?

I just checked your profile maps tab and it seems the individual maps are listed by the number of finds in the region with most finds. I also found this to be the case with my own maps list.

Maybe someone with "behind the scenes"-priveliges can confirm this and maybe comment on why it is that way? It would seem more logical to have them ordered by total finds, at least to me.
