    Question about the threads on this board.

    I don't like the way I'm forced to view the latest reply to a thread as opposed to the old board where you would see the initial post and all the respones, in chronological order, below it. It gets very confusing trying to figure out who responded to the initia post or who responded to someone else's reply. Anyway, my question is this; Is there any way I can change the format that I see to have them appear this way or is that how we must all see them (last post appears first)???

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    Well I saw that before, but I thought that had to do...

I will add that this little arrow feature doesn't always seem to work right, taking me instead to some posts that I've already viewed.

    Of course it won't be the same as the old board but maybe it will help some.

    with threads and not the replies within the thread. Know what I mean? Anyway, I just did what you suggested and I'll see what happens. I hope that does it!

    Well, I guess we'll see won't we. I have proof that it doesn't always work correctly. For example, FA's bored thread is displayed just fine, as it should be. This thread, however, has both of your posts displayed ahead of my original reply. That isn't how it's supposed to be. It's pretty obvious that the folks here still have some bugs to work out. I see they finally fixed the email notification problem for registration. I'll bet Chris' job would have been more enjoyable if it had worked correctly from day one.

    Enjoy your long weekend.
