Hi,

is it just me that find it weird/non-standard that the latest posts are on top on this board? I prefer to have it on the bottom, and I didn't find it anywhere in the personal settings to change that...

It is a global setting. If other people find the current arrangement annoying or strange I can change it.

of all the forums i have been on, this is the only forum with newest posts on top.

main reason why i like new posts on the bottom: i have no clue what the thread is about and need to read the first post. but it's annoying when i have to scroll all the way down or even navigate to other pages to find the first post. so scrolling once all the way to get down and then scrolling back up to read the thread. :angry:

is it possible to make this user customizable? if you like the current setup, you can keep it. otherwise, you can change it.

thanks for listening.

Ditto. Especially since I am new on this board, and don't know what any of the threads are about yet.

I'm trying to add a modification this weekend to allow users to select their personal sort preference.

The modification is complete. You can go to your profile and choose whether you would like to see Newest Posts First or Oldest Posts First.

PM me if you find any bugs with this.
