The most logical order for these is chronological:
Albums -- mostly photographs and relevant by date. Who makes a photo album alphabetically?
Articles -- the most up to date information tends to be the most relevant.
Climber's Logs -- We like to see our progress in the order we gained it not dictated by phonetic lexicons.
Custom Pages -- odds are these were created for immediate contemporary use where the most recent page is indexed the most frequently.
Gear Reviews -- the older the gear, the less relevant to the modern climber. Who wants a review on something written in 2002?
Lists -- this is generally going to change based on somebody's current interests which are time oriented not alphabet oriented.
Messages -- these have not been changed and that's fine.
Plans -- unless the user has lost their mind, plans are always moving forward in time and changing based on success of goals not the alphabet.
Trip Reports -- should be listed as they are published not alphabetically -- otherwise the information becomes dated/randomized
Other types of pages are indexed based on title association alone. These are the ones that make more sense alphabetized:
This was really not difficult to deduce. I'm appalled there isn't more contentious discourse concerning this matter.
