Default Why do threads start with newest post?

Contrary to every other message board I've visited, this one has the newest posts of each thread on the first page...basically from newest to oldest instead of the other way around.

Have a missed something? Is there an option somewhere to reverse this? Old-to-new seems much more logical and intuitive to me, especially since the only way to find out what the original post of the thread is would be to go to the last page of the thread and find the post at the bottom of that page.

I REALLY like the ability to set the notifications so that I don't get bombarded with email EVERY time someone responds.

Great work and THANKS for the new message board, Orest!!

XD
Click on User CP in upper left and then click on Edit Options. Go down to Thread diplay options and the first drop down window pick "Linear- oldest first"

1. In the upper-left corner of the forum window click the USER CP link
2. Then from the menus on the left, find the SETTINGS & OPTIONS section and click EDIT OPTIONS
3. Scroll down to the THREAD DISPLAY OPTIONS section
4. In the THREAD DISPLAY MODE section change the drop-down choice to "LINEAR - OLDEST FIRST" as shown below, to view posts in the order they are posted.

Thanks!!

It's still curious that oldest-to-newest is not the default. Oh, well.

after you make the changes to your options, you need to scroll down and click
"save changes".
After that if you don't see it change how the postings are listed, either hit refresh or
At worst then, log out and log back in again to make sure the changes take effect.

I rather imagine that the majority of us fit the "old dog" category.
