Order of Posts + OP

Unread postby A_theist » Sun Jan 02, 2011 4:47 pm

I'd like to suggest we reverse the order that the posts are displayed when you enter a forum Topic. The most recent post should be the 2nd post you see, and the first post you see should be the OP. I know this is possible because I've seen it on another forum.

It makes sense that one should see what the original thread topic was intended to be about, and then that they should see the most recent posts instead of having to jump to the last page to see the most recent posts.

Cheers, and good job maintaining the forum

Holy crap, doing that would save billions upon billions of threads from being totally de-railed. I can't believe I haven't seen that little mechanism on other forums. Keeping the OP at the top would save quite a bit of frustration for the one introducing the topic. I am for it as much as I am for :69:.

Not a bad idea to implement. Sounds interesting, but I haven't seen it in other forums.

The post order can be changed in member's 'display options' settings, ascending or descending. I like it like it is, but I could set that for myself. So Chris is really talking just the default setting there. Whatever.
As for the OP at the top, yeah, I like that idea too. I have seen other forums that worked like that.
