I wasn't sure where I should post this. This thread seemed to be the closest appropriate place to post my concern.
I have been noticing that several of the pieces recently hosted to sites have the pages out of order.

I think I have figured out why.
First of all, it's not the fault of any of the fantastic people putting in the hard work here.
There is a quirk in many computer image filing systems that can cause the scans to upload out of order.
The quirk is this: If the file name starts with a letter, it will skip the natural number order. For example if the file name is ab1, the file will skip to files ab11 - ab19 then to ab101 - ab199 and so on before it goes to ab2. It goes through all the 1's first in line after the letters then all the 2's and so on.

It's a real pain
I have run into this sort of things many times before myself. I used to volunteer as a reference librarian/page. Scanning old legal documents, magazines and newspapers was part of my job. I often had the pages come up out of order, even though when I looked at the file, the seemed to be in order.

There are two ways to combat this problem:
1. Place a descending letter value in front of every ten file names. Example: Aab for files 0-9, Bab for files 10-19, Cab for files 20-29 and so on.
....Or....
2. Make sure that the file name starts with the numbers first before any letters.

I know this may seem like a small thing, but it can make a big difference, especially when reputation is on the line.

I hope for your continued success!!
