    This forum is so much easier to read when you...

    ...change the way the threads are displayed. Go to "My Account"...click on "Edit Options"...scrolll down to the box that says "Thread Display Options"...and select "Linear Oldest First" INSTEAD OF "Hybrid". Now posts will show up in the order they are posted, instead of underneath what ever post was replied too...the "Hybrid" way might seem like a good idea but it absolutely sucks once a thread gets more than a dozen replies....you'll never find the new ones.

    Every other board I read with this engine defaults to the "Linear Oldest First" mode.

    Just figured I pass that along, as it makes all the difference.

    Except, unless replies automatically default Quotes then people have no clue who replied to what actual post....

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    you can just go to the bottom of the page to change the viewing mode. I assumed linear mode was default, thats the way mine is setup
