    I think that would be terrible for those of us who have been here for years. I'm sure i don't speak alone in that you get used to the ordering of sub-forums, so you know exactly where to go for it.

    Would almost be akin to jumbling up the keys on your keyboard :).

    Apt username is apt, and quite young by the sound of it. Probably aged 15. Knows all the latest social media stuff e.g. Tik Tok, but when it comes to forums...

    Forums, in fact, pre-date the web as BBS (bulletin board systems), and the board index never had to be in alphabetical order. Think of it as being a programme for a concert or chapters in a book. They are listed in a certain order but not in alphabetical order.

    or numerically out of a sense of structure

    Because mods...

    That's not very nice. You do know OP has trouble with reading and spelling e.t.c do you know what that's called in real life?

    I imagine it's to do with the popularity and when they were added, as there never used to be as many sub forums.
