Winter Sunlight


There's a pretty big wildfire north of town right now. It's not dangerous to us, and not likely to be - it's about 20 miles away and would have to go through a whole lot of subdivisions and the Trans-Alaska pipeline to get to us. However, the air quality is absolutely horrendous (I wore one of Orion's air-filter shop masks while I was doing garden work just now, because breathing hurts and makes your mouth taste like smoke), and it was raining ash and burnt spruce needles last night, although that seems to have mostly stopped for now.

I took a couple of pictures of the ashfall on the car last night around 11 p.m. or so.

Okay, here's something that's been low-key bugging me for some time:

What order does the AO3 "assignments" page list the various things you're signed up for? It frustrates me that it doesn't put your open/unfilled assignments together at the top or bottom, because that would be really handy to be able to see at a glance. But I've been trying to figure out for years what criteria it's actually using to decide what order to put them in. It's not chronological. It's not alphabetical, at least not by anything that I've tried to make fit (exchange name, recipient name, fic name). It doesn't seem to be based on deadline date or word count or anything else.

Yet it can't be completely random because it always puts the same ones at the top. So what criteria is it using? Does anyone know?

ETA: Got an answer, thanks!
