most every other forum I'm on or read posts from, present the replies to a thread in ascending order, i.e., first message (oldest dated post) in a thread is at the top and replies follow in kind, 2nd reply is post 2, the 3rd reply is post 3, etc... To me, its alot easier to read the subject and responses that way. Here, the latest reply appears at the #1 position, at the beginning of the viewed thread and previous replies follow..and if you need to see the original question or post, you may need to go to the end of the thread, several pages back, say in post #25 ( or whatever...) ..

Is this just my personal preference or do others feel the same or...?  just wanted to bring it up as I was curious..maybe this has been discussed before with reasoning agreed upon then..

Mike, you have a choice! If you go to your profile page, there is a place to chose which is on top. I like the latest message on top, that way I don't have to scroll down through all the old stuff to find something I haven't read. Just my preference.

Thanks Steve, no sooner directed, than done..guess its just personal preference..

actually when you subscribe to a thread, and get an emailed notice of a new posting, the link will take you to the latest message, no matter which option you have chosen..
