Ciao to everybody,

...am i the only person who dislike the "inverted" order of the post threads?

When i open a post in the forum, i think it's much better to see the first message before all the answers, end the answers in progressive order, so i can better understand the evolution of the thread!

i totally agree with you. would be great if someone could switch that back or at least give an option in the settings on how threads should be displayed!

Thanks for this.

I have passed this to the relevant team and it has been added to the list.

1+ for the reverted order being annoying. And it is not the only issue as you can see here:

It's totally stupid. God knows who thought it was a good idea.

I click on a thread to see if the topic of the thread matches the question posed and is relevant to me. I then have to scroll all the way to the bottom to read the question and then scroll back up slowly to see what processes were taken.. Even Twitter lists conversations in DMs in the correct fasion, it's just logical.

Can we please have an option in the user panel to have a default sort order for forum threads? It's cumbersome to constantly switch.

At least make a poll to see the proportion of users that prefer one way or the other. I would be very surprised if the number of people preferring the current sort order is so overwhelming that it deserve to be the only option possible. Pretty sure you'll see that a non-negligible portion of users would prefer bottom-posting, possibly more than those preferring top-posting.

Any news on this? Coming from literally any other forum, this one is super confusing.

The forum has other design issues too:

- There's a "Top" button on every post, the page is not that long and it's easier to just scroll the page. It's redundant and not useful. If you really really want a botton to scroll to the top you need just ONE floating button at the bottom right of the screen like on other websites.

- The post title is above every comment. Redundant and just takes space. A sticky header would be better for this.

- There's no easy way to differentiate between posts by Vuforia team and normal users, Unity forums manage this much better by using the Vuforia logo and a special flair for Vuforia employees, This way it's easier to spot potentially useful comments.

- The upvote/downvote feature is almost useless since there's almost no visual difference between a post with upvotes and a post without any. I would not show "0" (zero) if a post does not have votes, so you see numbers only if they matter.

Combined with the confusing post order this feels like a mess honestly, it surely needs a bit of polish.
