Clicking on "Unanswered Messages" on this forum lists messages from 2003 onwards. Wouldn't it make more sense to list them in the opposite order?

I know one can click both "Unanswered Messages" and "Today's Messages", but that's not quite the same.

Best regards.

I find the order intuitive since generally you want to answer people who have been waiting for the answer the longest 1st. If you start from the most recent messages the likelyhood of you getting to the bottom of the list is next to nill.

Hi Ilia,

That makes sense if you still intend answering those unanswered posts from way back.

If I do the same on my forum, I get unanswered messages from 2001! Nobody is going to answer them anymore.

Best regards.
