Then when Joe Q. Newham signs up and starts to find out what people are saying he finds every thread he looks at is in ass-backwards format and he has to go to the end and read a post then scroll up back over that post and up to the next and then read it and scroll up over that post and then scroll up to the start of the next post and…
The question is why do you need to see that latest post first? It would mean you miss posts which are older and results in posts essentially repeat what was posted earlier they failed to read.
You could actually just use the site as intended. For those who haven’t actually noticed this software keeps a record of every thread you have read. When you log in, and click on the subjects you are taken to the first post you have not read. So by default, merely accessing threads gets you dropped at the next bit relevant to you. As this is on a per user level, it doesn’t matter which device(s) you use for access. If I wander away from the shack and pickup my phone and look at this site it will show me the last view of it, which may not be the same as on the PC. All I do is touch the SOTA logo and the phone will update to synchronise the displays so the thread lists match and when I click, I go to the next post. This requires you log in otherwise the system doesn’t know it’s you and you have to spend redundant effort scrolling about trying to find things that are already automated.
As the logins for SOTAwatch and here are not the same, when you click on a SOTAwatch thread link, it has no idea what your reflector ID is. It cannot then automatically take you to here and to the right place in the threads. Instead of giving a relative link, it has to give an absolute link to the top of the thread. As we move to SSO (single sign on) it should be something that can be implemented.
Use it as designed and it makes things easier.
