It appears that my switch for showing the most recent posts first caught some of you by surprise. It could take some getting used to but now that it has been there for a couple weeks, how do you feel about it. Would you like it better if the most recent posts came at the end...like on pages 2,3,4,...?

Either way is fine.  I was a little lost for a while though.  Most forums are the other way around.  But it doesn't matter to me.

I prefer most recent post last.  That allows me to catch up on the other posts and refresh my mind about what has already been said. It was confusing at first, but I sort have the hang of it.

Maybe I just got used to the other way, but I find most recent post last to be more natural. It is the direction we read - down the page.

Have we fixed the quote everything in black  issue yet? It reminds me of the joke where the student blamed his bad college career on accidentally using the black permanent marker for a highlighter.

Still looking for input. C'mon guys, how can we possibly be short on opinions? 12 votes is not enough to make a decision.

I agree with triwahine, whom said:

"I prefer most recent post last.  That allows me to catch up on the other posts and refresh my mind about what has already been said. It was confusing at first, but I sort have the hang of it."

That is exactly what I was thinking.

Yellow seems more appropriate for a highlighter effect, don't you think? Thanks for pointhing that out Matt, I don't quote anyone so I never really noticed until I checked a post that had a quote on it...Nothing like kid style invisible ink. "Highlight to read the secret quote.

I like change.  I'm also a creature of habit.  I'm used to the format now after getting over the other one. ;D

I would prefer it the other way around.  But either way works for me. ;D
