Yes, MsMollimoz, it's just a matter of all posts being automatically placed in chronological order by the message board software, is all. Has nothing to do with anyone sorting/moving any posts.
If you look at any forum in forum view (like this
for instance) you will see "sticky post" titles toward the top of the forum (with the light bulb icon to the left of the post titles). These just stay at the top all the time, kind of as announcements, or information to be read first, or whatever. But then, you will see all the regular member post titles (with the round icon and little lines in them to the left of the post titles).
Note the dates of the member posts: in the left column, the date/time/author of the OP (original post) in the thread is listed (some go back to 2004!
). In the right column is the date/time/author of the latest reply
posted in the threads. Note these reply dates descend
as you read down the list, with the most recent reply at the top.
So, when you post a comment on any thread, that
thread goes to the top of the list. When someone else posts on any thread in that forum after you do, or starts a new thread, that
thread then goes to the top. And so on.
P.S. Since this is more of a general how-the-board-works kind of question, I did move this thread to the Suggestions/Comments forum, as others may be wondering the same or similar thing. Thanks.
