Keep the list of active filters in the order they are defined (not in the one they are added)
Open, Needs TriagePublic


As described in this user comment, currently the list of filters added to Recent Changes is listed as they are added. this makes it possible for filters of the same group to be listed far apart from each other making it hard to understand what the results represent.

For example the mockup below shows the result of adding "newcomers" and "experienced" with some other unrelated filters in the middle:

In order to keep related filters together we may want to keep them in their order of definition regardless of how these were added. This means that new filters won't normally be added at the end and we may want to check if that introduces new issues (i.e., is the current blue highlight enough for users to identify they added a filter even if it does not appear at the end?).
