    "Viewer" means "someone that who views something".
    "Order" means "arrangement".
    Does it mean that someone that who views something [STRIKE]is arrangement[/STRIKE ]arranges it or that he sees an arrangement, or does "viewer-ordered" mean "arrangement" only?
    Please help me.
    Thanks a lot. Unnecessary to thank people in advance. Wait until we have been useful and then click the "Thank" button.
    Please see my corrections above in red. Remember that in the present tense, the third person singular has an "s" on the end of the verb form.

    The compound "viewer-ordered" means "arranged by the viewer".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
