Ability to Sort Membership Level in Admin View - when adding new members

I saw a request about this in the thread in general questions but would like to make a formal request - When adding a new member manually, i.e. in admin view, to allow the list of options for Membership Level to be sorted so that the first one in the list is our preferred choice for new members. When we set up the Membership Levels we weren't aware of a problem we'd have when we added new members manually. Our primary Membership Level, which is the only level available to new members, is Regular. It happens to be 5th out of 6th, alphabetically. When our Membership chair adds a new member manually she occasionally forgets to select Regular from the drop down list and the new member is added with Membership Level equal to the first item in the list, which has different features including renewal dates and different membership fields. Then someone needs to find the problem later and ask her to fix it. Membership level is used in a number of saved searches and permissions so I'd rather not have to rename the levels just so that they appear in a better order for us when we add a new member manually. As a quick fix , if you could display more than just the first item in the list it might be more apparent to the administrator that a choice needs to be made here. With just the one item showing it is real easy to skip over.

        Our team was looking into rearranging the order of membership levels on the admin side of our website. They are currently automatically arranged alphabetically, but we were hoping to arrange them according to price points. We've found that when we register a new member it automatically selects the first membership option if we accidentally forget to select one ourselves (which happens to be the most expensive membership). It would just make it a little easier on our end if we could rearrange our levels. Thanks!
