As most of you may have noticed, the software update killed a few site-wide default settings, one of which is the topic order within each forum. The forums now default to the oldest topic first.
To return to having the newest topics appear first, preferences must be changed within your User Control Panel, as illustrated below. We will continue to look for a way to make this the default setting for future users, but for now everyone will have to adjust it for themselves. Sorry for the inconvenience.
