To Steve and others,

I've spent some time on the Cafe over the past two or three weeks and I'm enjoying it very much. I don't know if my suggestion is even "do-able." But here goes, anyway.
If you've been following one of the longer threads, and want to check the new posts, there's a wait while the thread loads, and you start with the very first post. If the thread extends onto a second page, there's another wait after you click to go to that page. And then you have to scroll down to the bottom of the messages on that page to find the lastest post. Sometimes after all of this, what you find is that someone has said something fairly trivial like: "Yes, I agree with Dennis." A fair amount of time has been spent without the reward of something interesting and new to read. Could the threads be re done to come up in reverse order? So that the very last post, which is what most of us are looking for, comes up when you first click the category? If so it would be a savings in time, meaning on any visit we can see more, and perhaps contribute more. Thanks for thinking about it.

That's coming, but until then, just click the "GO" image in the last post info in the right column of the topic list. That will take you to the last post, whether it's a one-page topic or not.
