    Default Why are the threads in Ask a Techer getting jumbled?

    Why are old threads popping up near the top of the list? At first I thought a moderator had been on an editing spree, but that does not seem to be the case.

    I hadn't noticed that they were.

    The order seems to be as it always was - based on when the last message was submitted.

    I've noticed it too. Posts with new content are appearing randomly interspersed with ones on which nothing has happened for a few days.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I haven't seen this. What browsers are people using who are seeing this?

    I'm using FF 20.0.1 and I've seen it too; also, I've seen situations where I couldn't see any of the threads I'd contributed to anywhere in the search string listing.

    I'm on Chrome 10.1.6 (on a Mac running Mountain Lion if it makes any difference).

    When you're looking at a forum listing, check the Thread Display Options that are located at the bottom of the page. I'd bet they are to blame...
