PostSubject: Oldest post first.....   Thu Nov 26, 2015 7:00 pm

I sense a leaning towards oldest post first and later posts following.


It seemed to work okay that way on the B4U forum but if the majority desire that the oldest posts appear first and that you have to scroll all the way down every time, possibly through numerous previously read posts, please let me know and I will change the order.


Personally I would prefer to see the most recent posts first when I check in but......Hey!.....I want this to be YOUR forum.


Tell me what YOU prefer!

Newest post first is my preference.

Agree the newest should be at the top.

I participate in a number of forums other than this, and every single one puts the OP (original post) at the top, followed by the newer ones.
If you don't visit the forum every day, it's much easier to start at the top with the first post, as opposed to scrolling down to start at the bottom.

Oldest FIRST is my preference.  Sometimes replies stray off topic so seeing the original first is a time saver.

I vote for oldest first.
Is it possible to create a link that takes you to "first unread post" so that you don't have to scroll through replies that have already been read?

I would vote for original posts at the top, oldest first. Scrolling down to the bottom and then "reading up" is "backwards" to my brain. Different strokes and all. Smile

Okay.....


If you see an 'orange paper' symbol under 'Last posts' and click on that it will take you directly to the newest post and you can peruse from there.

I comprehend the thinking of having the oldest first but if we have a large number of replies to a topic it can be frustrating to have to scroll all the way through several pages to get to the latest posts having already read the older ones.

Having the newest first would generally mean that one looks at the topic and only has to drop down a small number of posts to work up to the latest.

I feel a poll coming on! lol!

Oldest first. 

I can't think of any other forum I frequent that does it newest first. And since many threads veer off topic as the replies go on, starting from the newest first could mean you might have to scroll several pages back before you find posts relevant to the original topic.

Okay.....I run it but it is YOUR forum so, on the basis of replies received thus far, I have changed to oldest first.
