order, order

The thinking of the categorization of links was basically Your Stuff vs. Others' Stuff. This is why the links in Horizon is ordered My LJ, Journal, Pictures, Profile (belongs to you), Friends, Communities, Find (belongs to others). You can read more about the details in this post from when Horizon ("Beta Nav" or "Beta Site Scheme" at the time) was first introduced.

Vertigo is supposed to match Horizon for consistency, and also so we would only need to update things like links only once, and have it apply to both schemes.

Someone suggested that the Pictures section should be moved further down in Vertigo because of the amount of space its set of links takes up (whereas it's only one line/word in Horizon). A lot of you echoed this request, but had differing opinions on where it should be moved to.

We agree that it makes sense to move it down in favor of more frequently used links, so here's another poll for you. Keeping in mind our thinking of Your Stuff vs. Others' Stuff categorization, how do you think each section should be ordered? 1 = first, 8 = last.

Again, feel free to elaborate in the comments to this post. For comments that are related to the site scheme, but not about the ordering of the links, please keep them in the last two posts: Vertigo specific and Vertigo & Horizon's visual style.
