Standby list priority

How is the standby list (like, trying to grab an earlier flight) prioritized?

I understand that elites come first (I assume elite status then time of request?) but how are the rest of us prioritized? Is it only time of request or does fare class play a role. I was pleasantly surprised that I jumped up the standby list today as a no status flyer.

OT - I miss flying AS. After being a MVPG for many years, job changed and I've been mostly on UA (350k in 2 years). People on AS are just special.
