Currently, the recent awards content box does not show awards in a simple, chronological fashion.  First, it groups them by the sort order designated in the medals editor, then it sorts them chronologically.  The problem with this is that "higher value" awards remain at the top of the box and don't move down.

Let me give an example.  Let's say you have a Medal of Honor (MoH), an Achievement Medal (AM) and Commendation Letters (CL).  In your awards editor, you have the display order set in that order- 0 for the MoH, 1 for the AM and 2 for the CL.  Now, you award all three medals once.  Your recent awards box will look like this:

MoH
AM
CL

Now, it stands to reason that you're going to give out "lower level" awards more often, so you award 3 more Commendation Letters.  Now, your recent awards box looks like this:

MoH
AM
CL (newest)
CL
CL
CL

You see how the MoH and CL haven't moved?  That's because they are "higher" awards and the box sorts them first.  They will ONLY move down when you award more of those medals or higher value ones.

What I'm suggesting is that awards be sorted on the basis of date only.  In that case the recent awards box in the example above would then look like this:

CL (newest)
CL
CL
MoH
AM
CL

If Aaron makes this change, will it be OK with the other guild leaders?  The way the box works now, you have to look closely to see that new medals have been awarded because they may actually be near the bottom (if they are of low value).

I like this suggestion. I'd prefer to have then sorted by date than the way they are sorted now. It would also be nice to enter a number (or date) that limits the number of awards that show in this list.
