"Sort" option to rearrange subscribed threads

Can we look at adding an option to sort and/or filter threads you have subscribed to?

I think this is the first time anyone has requested this as a new feature. Is there a particular reason why you'd want to be able to sort or filter that page? Most people don't have that many subscriptions so if we did add this in, it would probably see minimal use.

I use the setting that automatically subscribes to threads I post to.
That way, if there are updates I know about them.
Therefore, I do have a good number of subscribed threads, and apparently different from "most people".

Occasionally I want to find an old post, that I know I commented on and is therefore in that subscribed list.
I would find filtering those useful.

How many threads are you subscribed to? Sounds like a search feature might be more useful here than sorting or filtering.

A lot.
Since it is automatic, basically every thread I've ever posted to.
I always want to get updates to those, at least for a period of time.
An auto unsubscribe after a certain time might be a nice feature.

I was thinking more along the lines of a "filter" than "sorting".
It could act like a pseudo search, by maybe isolating certain sub-forums for example.

Search would be nice, but RFD doesn't have a good track record on search.

It isn't a big issue, but I was throwing my support behind the OP because it appeared you neither saw that people would use it, or that some have a large subscription list.
