The forum runs backwards!

I've been using these forums since around 2001 and the posts have always been in the logical order of oldest at the top and newest at the end but this forum has it all backwards with the oldest at the bottom.

I've read the FAQ section and it's as clear as mud - anyone able to shed any light how I can have this displaying properly please?

I guess it's a matter of preference. Personally I find it much easier to have the newest posts listed first. If you are following a thread (and some of them are very long) then it's convenient to have all the new posts at the top of page 1. It does seem a bit counter-intuitive when you first view a thread in this format but it does make it easier to access the newest posts when you are regularly accessing the same threads.

I just click the 'view first unread' link to take me straight to the the newest bits. :)
