An empty post. Interesting.

I like the backwards sorting.... but I also like Tiltowaits cute blood slave avatar. She certainly makes a tough case.

Hypothetically...
Lets say you eat at McDonalds and if they start tossing your hamburgers into a blender that shouldn't make a difference to you either. You're still getting all the nutrients from the food.

THE POINT is that these backward Posts are about as annoying as hamburgers going into a blendor or opening a book to find the Last page is the first.

I must say that it is very disconcerting and painful to read the Posts backwards. Roughly 99% of forums (including every other UBB board I've ever seen) go oldest to newest. I suppose if you're used to this way then you like it... then let us individually choose. But it's kind of silly. Like reading right to left. Or starting a book on the Last page, thus spoiling the ending.

Please please please change the forum so it reads properly oldest to newest, or at least let me change it for myself.

We would just piss the other half of the board off if we changed it .
This cant be an accurate statement.

How could anywhere NEAR half of the forum readers prefer the backwards sorting? No other forum is like this...

Please. For the love of all that is good and holy...fix the sorting.

[repost from Dominions II forum]

Put me down on the "I hate it" list too.

I browse 20+ forums a day and trying to "change gears" in this forum is a constant irritant for me.

I read MANY forums every day, and it is irritating to have to go through everything backwards here. TO figure out where you Last post left off, you have to first scroll down, and then start scrolling up to get back to where you started. Also, you ncna't just start reading from the top (which is faster) because most Posts refer to the previous Posts. Most people http://www.shrapnelgames.com/cgi-bin...;f=67;t=000024 do not like this, and it is very UNPROFESSIONAL to have a forum that is ***-backwards from every other normal forum on Earth. I love shrapnelgames, but this forum system just screams incompetance... especially when you COULD have the option to sort.
