It changed from recent-oldest to, at some point (a few weeks ago? Can't remember) ordered by xper rank of the answerer. But I noticed yesterday it didn't seem to follow that as strictly any more, or what I actually saw on one question was the male answers were by rank and the women's were not.
I will keep my eyes open and see if I can determine the pattern.
Yes, when the moon is in Ares, the most recent opinion will appear at the top. When the dove's entrails are full of bile, the oldest opinion will appear at the top. When the tarot deck gives you the six of swords, opinions alternate oldest, newest, next oldest, next newest. When the Ouija board says, "Good bye," then opinions alternate newest, oldest, next newest, next oldest, and so on.
Yeah I was wondering the same thing. At first I thought I was losing my mind. Guess people like to change things just for the sake of change. There's other things they could add or change but they decide to fuck with something that's perfectly fine as it is.
my experience is that it'sthe same GAG shit, different day.
my personal beef is that questions i post drop very quickly off the radar, being replaced by others. GAGers who know me will probably say this is a good thing, but i'd at least like to have the chance to be told go fuck myself before my thread ends up in the archives.
another problem is technical. every page i load on here has to go through that grey-bar shit in the lower left hand corner. processing this request, waiting for that bullshit. what happens as a result is the items on the menu slip and slide up and down to the point where i've actually clicked on one topic only to have another one open up.
i've emailed the admins several times, receiving answers that blamed everyone else including the antichrist for the problem. now i cannot do that because they are dead.
Well, I must be careful but I had the impression they had simply reversed the sorting from most recent on top to most recent at the bottom... although I haven't investigated it thoroughly. I noticed the change but have become used to it.
I noticed the change. I think they are ranked by xper level. I am not a 100% sure though, I might be completely wrong. It was way better from recent to oldest. Now it's kind of confusing and a bit unfair for the new users as they don't get noticed.
It seems like it is ranked by xper level. Highest xper user on top, lowest on bottom, but you'll always see your's at the top no matter what... for convenience I guess. Honestly, it is very annoying. If you want to see new answers you have to search through the thread and look at the time stamps. I hope they are just working on this and not punishing us lol
