I'm a fan of the Bumble Bee stylez with the Cheeseburgers.  I recommend it.

Great job, Cat-Dog! I love the new look and all the new features. Looks like I'm going to have to spend more time here to figure everything out. Thanks for your hard work.

One thing. Down below Pages it says TrailerParkBoys.org | The ORG | New Announcements

The ORG and TrailerParkBoys.org link to the same places. Is there any way to change that?

They actually link to different places, as "The ORG" jumps directly to the start of "The ORG" heading, and the link "TrailerParkBoys.org" just goes to the main index.

One question:
 is there anyway to change it that when I read a topic it starts at the latest entry not the oldest?
Does that make sense?

So when you click on a topic, instead of being brought to the last post, you get the first post? Or is it putting you where the most recent unread replies start?

Go to Profile, Look and Layout Preferences, and make sure Show most recent posts at the top is UNCHECKED.

Tell me if that helped?

That is dangerous, we didn't have that option at the old .org did we?  I noticed there were people that would ignore previous posts and post the same thing or something similar maybe it was because they had it at that setting?  If people did that on the proper setting (most recents posts the bottom) I can only see that annoying trend increasing if we give them the option of most recent posts at the top.  What we should  be looking for is a way to force people to read all posts in a thread before they are allowed to contribute to the thread ha ha, I know it's not possible but it should be.  It would certainly cut down on the stupid and unnecessary posts, things like people asking a question or making a point that was just made 2 posts before that.

I've always had the newest posts at the end. I like it better that way and is easier to understand. Maybe there is a way you could have Most Recent at the top unchecked by defauld or delete that option.

I'm not sure if that option was available on the old site I certainly never used it if it was there - as I would be more likely to skip over previous posts as shake mentioned.

I guess it would be preferred if people use the standard layout, however if it becomes a problem, we could always restrict the option to see recent posts first.

It was available. At the top I'm pretty sure is said "accending" and there was a drop menu and you click "decending" or the other way around.

EDIT:

Oh, nvm. It was near the bottom of the page and it said "Oldest First" and there was a drop down menu where you could pick "Newest First"

Examples: (Differant Style though)

Thanks FF64, I didn’t even notice that horrible option was there.  Like I said though it does help explain some things.  I mean everyone can make a stupid post from time to time, but some people seemed to be repeat offenders, it was like they never even bothered to follow the flow of the conversation in the thread.  So I’m guessing they had this option ass-backwards option turned on.  Either that or they were to stupid and/or inconsiderate to follow proper netiquette and read all previous posts in a thread before jumping in.
