I was wondering if the order of posts in a thread could be reversed. Topics are listed top-down in order or recency, while messages are the other way around. Well, of course it's simpler to read top-down, but it's annoying to have to find the last message in a thread, which is compounded when there are multiple pages in the thread. Best of all would be to just have it jump to the earliest message you haven't read yet when you open a thread.

This is the option that I would choose. I really don't like reverse order threads, but I do like the message board remembering what I have already read.

Game on,

Oof... Let me think about the best way to do this (I'd rather not use cookies, as I browse this forum from at least 2 computers and HATE when differnent computers think I've read different things).

Actually, it shouldn't be too hard. I'll refine my thoughts on it then talk to Erik and/or Malarme (they've got plenty of free time about now, I'm sure :)) and I'll see what I can do.
