    Would you prefer it so we keep the order as it is now, old to new, or the other way around, new to old?

    Ie you click a thread title and the newest reply is at the top?

    It depends, on the really long threads I normally want to see the newest reply so i have to click on the latest page, but on some threads I might want to read the intro/message by OP

    Old to new, because it makes sense to start from the start. Or else you'd have to scroll down/change the page to read the OP, and know what exactly it is you're replying to, right? :confused:

    Also, I'm old and despise change.

    Old to new. Too many people don't read the OP in a thread as it is. With new to old, people would get off topic practically straight away.

    Old to new, I feel that by changing it people will go off topic quickly

    Old to new. The only time it should be new first is if you've already visited the thread.

    Keep it as it is old to new definitely. I like seeing the original comments when i first go on the thread its not too hard to go to the last page.

    Old to new... as someone above said, if you want it the other way round, that's in the settings, and I know a few people do have that, but I guess the vast majority have it old to new, as it is now!

    I have my current setting as new to old, and that's my personal preference. I think it should stay as is, with people changing it to newest first if they want to.

    Old to new but obviously allow people to change it so everyone's happy. Especially when I have to read a few posts don't want to read replies before I read the original post for example.

    I also like reading posts top to bottom rather than the other way round.
