    Hey everyone,

    Part of the new system is that we can't alter the Threads Per Page setting in just one forum or the other like before. (Well, that was custom before too). So, threads will split over about 5 pages all the time.

    Now, we currently have it to act like a normal forum - 20 per page. But, if you want, we can set it to alphabetical by default.

    That means your state / country may always be on "Page 2" or "Page 4".

    If you prefer this, let us know. If you'd like to keep it "Newest First", also let us know.

    The alphabetical would map out like below pics:

    Alphabetical is so much easier, even for states late in the alphabet- because you don't have to look through every single state to find out if yours is there. It's SO MUCH QUICKER alphabetically.

    Alpha. If I have to dig through pages to find my state's sightings post every time I want to post something, I'm just going to stop posting. I only post sightings because it's quick and easy (I hardly buy retail stuff anymore myself), once it stops being those things, I'll likely not bother posting anymore.

    Ok, switched it to alphabetical. Not a massive vote, but it was lopsided for alpha, and all talk about it outside of here was for alpha too. So alpha it is :)

    So, right after we went through this process, I explained our situation and a Xenforo (new forum software) coder was kind enough to create an customization to allow us to show all on one page in just this forum. It literally didn't exist until yesterday. Sorry for the trouble, back to normal!
