    Why are forum postings backwards?

    I have been to Porsche & other car forums & the original posting is at the top & the replies would be underneath it? am I doing something wrong or have a setting wrong? I have to go to the last page of a posting to start reading the replies? Just curious

    Just a regular member but I would guess so you can see the new postings first. I thought the same thing at first. Sometimes it's aggravating to look at a new thread and have to go to the very last page to read the original post n read backwards but that's how they want it sooo I dunno Lol.

    It is somewhat irritating to have to start on the last page first.

    I see the answer, and I'm assuming he did too, but you could have just said Go to your control panel, and it's in your edit options. No need for hostilities.

    I'm not being hostile. JR took the time to post the link, which has the answer, and if you are too damn lazy to click it, well I don't know what to tell ya.
