    Nothing weird at all - just change your settings. Go to settings/general setting/display thread option and change it to "oldest first"

    Re: weird

    I saw the same thing when I joined and it took someone to show me where to change it. I don't know why this forum defaults to that format as all the other forums on the web that I've visited (and it's quite a few) do it opposite (first post at the top).
    As you say -- weird.

    Re: weird

    And..... all the forums I visit show the last post first.....

    That's not true.... I've been to a few forums that show it backwards, so I change the settings the correct way, last post first.

    Different strokes for different folks? I guess that's why there are options to change it.....

    Not sure which ones you subscribe to but I am on about 12 sim forums and they are all first post first. But as you say -- different strokes for different folks. I must say that to change it I had to have someone tell me or I never would have found it. It would have been nice to have it as selection under the Display options at the top.
    Just curious but why last post first? When reading new threads you have to navigate to the bottom of the last page to find out what the thread was all about -- not intuitive IMHO.
