[Resolved] sort authors

    I use the Hybrid theme which has an authors page. I would like to display the authors of the blog in descending order by ID. Or maybe by latest entry on the blog.

    Can anybody help me?

    <?php foreach ( get_users_of_blog() as $author ) : ?>
    
    						<?php if ( get_the_author_meta( 'user_level', $author->ID ) > 0 || get_the_author_meta( 'user_login', $author->ID ) == 'admin' ) : ?>
    
    							<div id="hcard-<?php echo str_replace( ' ', '-', get_the_author_meta( 'user_nicename', $author->ID ) ); ?>" class="author-profile vcard clear">
    
    								<a href="<?php echo get_author_posts_url( $author->ID ); ?>" title="<?php the_author_meta( 'display_name', $author->ID ); ?>">
    
                                        <?php  the_author_image($author->ID);'width="130" height="160"';?>
    
    								</a>
    								<h2 class="author-name fn n">
    									<a href="<?php echo get_author_posts_url( $author->ID ); ?>" title="<?php the_author_meta( 'display_name', $author->ID ); ?>"><?php the_author_meta( 'display_name', $author->ID ); ?></a>
    								</h2>
    								<p class="author-bio">
    									<?php the_author_meta( 'description', $author->ID ); ?>
    								</p><!-- .author-bio -->
    
    							</div><!-- .author-profile .vcard -->
    
    						<?php endif; ?>
    
    					<?php endforeach; ?>

    Here’s one example:

    <ul>
    <?php
    //List of users sorted descending by date of lastest post written by user
    $uc=array();
    $blogusers = get_users_of_blog();
    if ($blogusers) {
      foreach ($blogusers as $bloguser) {
        $userpost = get_posts('showposts=1&author='.$bloguser->user_id);
        $uc[$bloguser->user_id] = '';
        if ($userpost) {
          $uc[$bloguser->user_id]=$userpost[0]->post_date;
        }
      }
      arsort($uc);
      foreach ($uc as $key => $value) {
        $user = get_userdata($key);
        $post_count = get_usernumposts($user->ID);
        if ($post_count) {
          $author_posts_url = get_author_posts_url($key);
          echo '<li><a href="' . $author_posts_url . '">' . $user->user_firstname . ' ' . $user->user_lastname . '</a> (' . $post_count . ') </li>';
        }
      }
    }
    ?>
    </ul>

    OK, that works, but not in the right way.
    The authorspage in the Hybrid theme puts authorinformation + gravatar, or as I did the authorimage from the authorimage plugin. So I would like to use the above code but with an output in descending order, to have this nice overview of authors in the blog.
    Hope You can help me?

    Well I figured out myself to change in the user.php file. Line 281 I added DESC.
    ‘ORDER BY {$wpdb->usermeta}.user_id DESC”‘
