The choice between having the newest, as opposed to the oldest, posts first is not working this morning.

There's noone there is there! They are losing interest in us!

Thanks for letting us know, and sorry for the delay, jangly hmm!

You're right, when you change your preferences in 'Customise', it doesn't seem to be working. I'll get Tech onto it asap.

In the meantime, you can click 'Flip' at the top of every thread, to get the newest posts first.

Thanks, josie (my daughter hates being called Josie; it has to be Jo or Josephine), but I hate having to flip the flipping threads, especially the long ones — and ones with several pages do a funny glitch after you post so you have to re-flip to get the newest post at the top. Get Tech onto that, too, please.

Just mentioning..... smile

Oh I didn't know you could do that - I always go to 'last'. Suppose that takes a bit longer. As if I've got all day to sit on here .......! grin

Ooh, great choice of name for your daughter, Baggy! I used to hate being called Jose (one syllable) when I was younger, and also attempted to make myself a Josephine (much more sophisticated, I thought). Alas, I'm a Josie through and through!envy

Could you explain the funny glitch? I'll make sure all requests are passed on to Tech and he'll fix it when he's finished making the tea scrobulating the F drives <not a real thing>.

Greenmoss - I seem to remember I requested the flip button.

So for goodness sake use it.

greenmossgiel Tue 16-Aug-11 11:17:11

Oh I see what you mean...quite good, that, eh! grin

Baggy Tue 16-Aug-11 11:47:11

Right, josie, I'll just go and see if I can do the glitch again so that I can describe it properly. hmm

Baggy Tue 16-Aug-11 11:52:08

Yep. That worked. This is what I did and what happened.

1. I went to the Quiet Corner and flipped the thread. My last post at 10:35:08 showed just below the OP's.

2. I posted a new comment (glitch test).

3. The page came back with the thread flipped as in no.1 above but with the glitch test post at the bottom of the page instead of 'above' the 10:35 one.

4. I pressed 'flip' again and order (newest first) was restored.

Ooh how very strange, Baggy! Sorry about that. Tech's been notified, so hopefully it will be fixed very soon.

Tech (GNHQ) Tue 16-Aug-11 12:34:12

Hi, sorry about that. We inadvertently broke something overnight. It should be working OK now.

Baggy Tue 16-Aug-11 12:42:57

Yay! grin Thanks.

I love the new word "scrobulating" - it's one of the most descriptive sounding words and should be on the thread of the best words
