perhaps we could have a poll to see if others would like to have the latest posts shown first.
currently the first post is shown first

Personally, I hate forums that order posts that way.

On this forum, I get to new posts using the very useful "new posts" link at the top of the home page, or "Latest Forum Posts" listing at the bottom of the home page, then click the little arrow next to the poster's name to go to the last unread post.

Also, when reading an old thread for the first time, I find it annoying and un-natural to have to click to the last page and scroll to the bottom to find the context of the thread from the original post, then scroll up to the top of that page as I read, then click to the previous page and have to scroll to the bottom again to continue reading.

Hear hear BigMouse! It's very easy to goto the latest post on the forums.
The worst forums ever would have to be yahoo! Just awful. Image
