Hi, I did something weird.

The new posts are showing up on Page 1 of a thread instead of the last page.

I feel like my brain is backwards.

Do you know how I can fix it? Thanks!

Wow. 4 years of this comp and I've never seen this happen before and it's just happened to me; posts loading in most-recent-first order. But only in Chrome, not safari.
WEIRD.

Ok want to know something weird? Your post's order is infecting mine!

I cleared out my browsing history, I fixed it, checked my own thread and a few others... they were all displaying most-recent-posts-last.

Then I went to yours... upside down. And so was mine again, and everyone else's!

So... weird. I'm going to read yours and then clear my cache again, suggest you clear yours too ASAP!

This started happening to my master lists last year.  I had to redo the lists - well at least that is what I did, wanted to make sure everyone was able to use them in  a shot time rather than a long time screwing with them.

I solved this mystery accidentally a few weeks ago. There are two buttons that cause this to happen (and they are very easy to hit accidentally).

On the page that shows all threads, there is a little yellow arrow next to "Last Post." And if you click it, it will reverse the order.

In an individual post, if you click "Message" at the top, it will also reverse the order of the posts. All you have to do is click the button again to fix it. :)

I will watch for that in the next SSC, but pretty sure I did not hit anything accidentally - just logged in and everything was backwards everywhere.

Weird.

You know why? You are a winner every day. Thank you, @stephenmatlock. Laugh of the day for me. 

I use those little arrows to sort entrants by number of reviews, so I can choose to review people who haven't received many yet. But it's only relevant for R1 because after that R1 and R2 are mixed in the same thread and with fewer R2 entrants everyone will get reviewed unless they're very late to post.
