It's not often I read these forums but when I do I get annoyed by how they work.. Normally, at any other forum, when you click a topic you would get to read OP's post first and then the comments below. Which is the only logical way.
On MMOC on the other hand, when you click a topic you get directed to the freaking last comment made, before even reading what the original post was about.. WTF? It makes 0 sense. I dont even know what this guys post Iam now reading is referring to since I have not yet read the OP. So I have to do a few extra clicks to get to see what the post was about.
Can someone explain why they have it on this retarded way, there can not be any good reason behind it.
It depends on what you click. If you click the thread name, you get the first post. If you click the little blue circle next to the thread, you get the first new post you haven't seen. If you click the blue box next to the person's name, you go to the last post. If you hover your mouse over the little images, it will tell you where it will take you.
Because we're listing the most recent posts, not the most recent threads with posts.
In any case, we assume that the relevant discussion people should be looking at and replying to is in the last few posts. If we always showed the first post, we might end up showing the beginning of a megathread when the topic has shifted, and it gets kind of messy when people are quoting something on the first page when the thread is very long.
