anyone else agree this new posting format is lame?

for years, we simply posted our opinion on a given thread and these replies were all in order from first to most recent. If we wanted to reply to a certain response, then, it was placed right after that post you responded to. This was a nice way to keep things in order. Now the most recent replies are read first and sometimes the most recent replies discuss things that have already been posted previously in the thread but if you are just clicking on the thread for the first time, you read the latest posts first and then discover the origins of the thread last. Can be confusing and really doesn't make sense.

Anyone else agree Aran needs to change it back?

I think issues with the site

I think issues with the site are still being sorted out. Last time there was a major site crisis a couple years ago the format was doing what it's doing now(reverse posting). So if I were to guess, I'd say it will be fixed, but no idea how long.

I think this site could use another admin or two, I know it has a few moderators but I highly doubt they have power to actually change formats or fix issues with the site. The reason the site was messed up so long was probably because there is only 1 or 2 admins and they were busy for an extended period of time so it took awhile before it got fixed.

Amen llperez

You are spot on. If there is a referendum, I am signing it.

I agree. To many we pages

I agree. To many we pages have to be loaded before a response gets published.. I suppose it keeps spammers and trollers away but it does get annoying.

Off-Topic

You should join my fantasy league. I like having veteran members in it.
