Sorting earthquakes?

In the category “Earthquakes Alerts -> Top” sorting order is unclear. Neither time, nor magnitude…

I would suggest to add possibility to sort events by different criteria. E.g., by time, by Mw, etc.

Another bug – when selecting “Time scope” (top-left above the EQ-list) you will be forwarded to a 404 not found famous page.

I think the forum software uses criteria like number of pageviews, number of replies, etc. This will work better when there are more users, eg., top earthquakes will be the most visited. We will investigate if we can inject other parameters, like magnitude, into the algorithm. For specific searches, we recommend https://geofon.gfz-potsdam.de/eqinfo/form.php

This is fixed now, thanks for letting us know.
