    makes sense in a way
    though sorting each new one as it happens
    alphabetically still makes more sense to me lol

    Next time they get together for beer, re-arranging the forum order would be a change from the random ban hammers :D

    Existing sort order into categories is fine.. Since it's a shop based forum, it makes sense to have that first. Otherwise, General Hardware would be next to General Discussions. People would get confused and post in the wrong sections.. It would be interesting though.

    That said, maybe a customised area at the top to move/drop your own favorite sections so they appear first..

    Sorry if my post came across as nasty. I thought the dyslexia was a joke as people were posting stuff like "turn your dyslexia up", so I joked along with it about the age. I have sight problems myself, so I just make the text bigger.

    As for the forum index, I don't think there is any way to sort it A-Z unless there was a CSS file that can alter the layout. Not sure if that can be done though. I use browser-wide CSS to make the background black, text in light grey (so not too bright) and remove the scroll bars as they're pointless if you have a mouse wheel or touchscreen.

    Why do we still have gangsters as avatars
    Why is MM post count 1000
    Why is 'letterbox', 'boxing stance' and 'pancake' a perfectly normal response to anything?

    Because this is OcUK

    Pancake!

    It takes a bigger man to say sorry
    So thanks for doing it :)
    It's in my signature about the Dyslexia
    Though not everyone can see signatures
    Depends on what device and settings you have
    I don't mind humorous remarks about it if they aren't meant nastily
    Humour is subjective and some of the guys are very defensive about remarks about my weird dyslexic text spacing
    I accept it was meant as humour
    And we can close it and move on :)

    Just for the record though lol
    Never used tik tok, Instagram or twitter :)
    Wish I was 15 again and able to climb
    Some trees or something
    Instead of having a few prolapsed discs :)
    And Ironically I didn't actually realise you meant me as my insomnia is terrible right now
    So had no sleep brain wasn't fully functioning and saw Diddums name and thought you meant them :D:D:D:D
    And thanks for sticking up for me guys
    Sorry is enough to consider it in the
    Past far as I am concerned :):):):)

    I'd rather they were sorted by sub thread count, or recent sub thread post count.

    That way, the most unpopular areas would fall to the bottom, and into the relegation zone.

    Thanks dude :)

    I think because of my font setting, so that's my bad. It only shows the first 3 lines of your signature. So I selected it, press shift+down arrow which extends the selection by a line, copied and pasted into Notepad and indeed it did paste it as 4 lines!
