can newest replies be made default for site feed

Posted Over 2 Years ago by Grey Echelon

It makes more sense anyway for a site that's still rather slow and I find it more convenient especially when I'm logged out and I have to set it back again.

There are 11 Replies


I find Hottest Posts better for me so wouldn't really like the signed out default to change. Newest Replies is quite messy by comparison.

For those unaware you can change which one is your default when you a sign in:

Newest Posts - Orders posts on the timestamp of when the main post was made, regardless of replies.

Newest Replies - Shows a list of actual replies and a preview of the text, newest at the top.

Hottests Posts - Orders posts based on the timestamp of last reply, most recent at the top. This is the standard view on modern internet forums though they wouldn't use the same naming convention. The name is highly misleading as it implies it's ordering it based on the popularity of a thread overall. Other sites would describe "hottest" as the ones with the most likes/activity within a recent timeframe.

What's a better name for Hottest Posts?

Grey Echelon, it might make sense to set your GTX0 bookmark to the link for newest replies:
https://gtx0.com/index.php?forum=newest&mode=rep
That way every time you go to GTX0 you're seeing newest replies, whether you're logged in or not.

Out of curiosity, does anyone use "My Active" regularly?

Can't believe people are still comfortable with just blatantly lying.

Granted I don't really know what to call it because on most other forums it is just the default way you view them. I just know that in terms of how the internet usually defines "hottest", yours doesn't line up.

I find it pretty useful too if I'm not involved in almost every single discussion like I have been lately.
