I am listening.
The new default Forum Thread Order has now been changed to the old order ( threads are sorted chronologically by the date of the topic message)
BUT, it may take up to 24 hours for this change to propagate across all forums.
few new options will be available in the future.
Each user will be able to sellect what her/his default order will be, allowing for those who are logged on to have their personal default.
Also, each forum moderator will be able to sellect what forum default will be, allowing for each forum to have its own default order.
But, the personal default will always override forum default, meaning you will have the view you prefer, as long as you are logged on, regardless of what forum moderator think is the best local order.
So, this will make almost everybody happy except some of those few who are not logged on, which is about 80-90% of curezone visitors :-) .
