I prefer having the newer posts at the top of the page. This is how it is in most other forums. Perhaps this is a user setable option? Also, it would be nice if posts were not moved to the archives so soon.

The same could be said for the order in which threads are displayed. Perhaps have the threads with the most recent posts nearer the top of the page.

This is another one of those six-of-one, half-a-dozen-of-the-other situations. There are forums with the order ascending and there are forums with the order descending. We are just continuing with the way it was in the old forum as no one ever voiced a concern.

Actually the newer threads (based on date of creation) are first.

The rate at which messages are archived is based on a concern for keeping the pages from getting too long. If they have photos on them, it can take those with slow connections a long time to download. You are the first person to ask for the pages to be lengthened. I really don't know what the optimum is, but I will change it if I get more requests for it.
