Thread order

This is the only forum that I've ever seen that shows the most reacent post first, not the original post, then all responces below etc... Is there a setting that I can change? It's ok on a 1 page post, but for reading multi-page threads, I have to go to the "last" page to read the original post!

Thanks, and ya'll rock!

Very odd. You're the only person I know of that is seeing threads in reverse order. Makes me wonder if there is a setting for that .... hold on, checking
.
.
.
... and there is a setting. I've never noticed it before. Go to "User CP" and select "Edit Options". In the "Thread Display Options - Thread Display Modes" box select "Linear - Oldest first".

You must have changed it and didn't remember because "oldest first" has always been the default.

Mal,

I just checked my TFL passbook.

Seems Tamara deducted points for showing me the "report this post to moderator " some time ago. I gained some points back for showing folks we had a Library and where to find it. Then I called Dave McC a "Trapper" and lost points, gained some points teaching a fella how to shoot a shotgun in New Zealand via the 'Net. Then I lost a bunch of points when the spouse of a member came home with a 28 ga [ I warned them] and I got the blame as usual.

I got 50 pts. left. How about I just save these and if I ever get lost in the woods of N VA, buy you a cup of coffee?

Oh I see coffee in N VA costs 100 points...cost anything to shake hands and say hello?
