    Hey guys,

    Only just noticed that the "default ordering" of my shop has been completely messed up.. (again...)

    Not looking forward to having to organize it all over again.

    Is it possible to retrieve the sorting the way it was pre-refactoring?

    Also choosing "descending/ascending" does not work anymore. <-- this part seems to work now

    This appears to have a happened to me too. The order appears to be totally random, and it would take some significant time to do again. Do we knowwhat causes this issue and if it's been fixed, as I'd rather not spend another hour doing it again if it's going to randomise again.

    This "messing-up-of-default-ordering" feature is indeed quite annoying. Shapeways is now monitoring my shop on a regular basis to see whether they can spot the bug. I am happy that they give this problem the attention that it deserves.

    More things are strange in the shop ordering
    -Why is upload date default "oldest-first" instead of the more logical "newest-first"?
    -Why is product name default "Z-A" instead of the more logical "A-Z"?
    -Why can the default order be selected into "least-preferred-model-first"?

    I asked this to Shapeways privately, and I understand that there is some programmer logic behind this, which is not necessarily user logic.

    Hi guys, hang in there! The bug is found and we are fixing it. Turns out that some of your models had the same sorting value which causes unpredictable behavior.
