How should forum posts be displayed in the default thread view?
Currently, the thread view in the forums is set to show newest posts on top, for convenience. Several users expressed a desire to have it display oldest first, like other popular web forums. A toggle is in the works to allow users their preference, but until that can be implemented, we want the default to reflect the majority.
1) Newest on top - 16 votes, 55%
2) Oldest on top - 12 votes, 41%
3) No preference - 1 votes, 3%
While there was a slight majority for having newest post on top, it was later voiced that there was some misunderstanding and a few persons voted for newest although they would prefer oldest. Following this we have set the default to oldest (as similar to standard in most forum applications) but created a custom toggle for users to change the display.
