I had an old girlfriend named Razz(last name Razzano) who was a hot little Italian job with a wild head of dark curls that would stop traffic.
She was an artist and was generally well acknowledged to be extremely cool...so much so that I took to calling her Cool Razz which then morphed into Kool Razz Ultra. Then one day I tried out Razz Beans...she dumped me a few weeks later...
The best ones always do.

Than you for the sorting feature. I didn't realize how I'd relied on that at Disqus.
Why can't I up vote this?

Because admin threads have the thanks disabled ...

It isn't a choice it is built that way I believe, because they are for information purposes not talking and upvoting

That is correct, they were never meant to be chatty threads, but quick and informative ones. I actually turned off thanks in them to keep from padding my own thanks. But I do appreciate being called dumb.

Please sort by last topic post date, not by last comment date. I'm tired of looking down the menu to find the dates of the last topic posts.
Within each topic, please sort by last comment or give the option to choose: by best comment or newest comment or oldest comment like Disqus did.
Both would improve the participation experience.
This should be intuitive, like Steve Jobs required of all his devices, so much so that his 9 year old could pick one up and use it without reading the manuals. That is why his products are so successful. Apple adopted that philosophy during his life a maintained it after his death.
How To's are for wonks, who want to know how something works, not for general public, who just wants something user friendly to use.
It is great that we have a forum, but it needs to be easier to use.

This is an option as well.

And the explanation of how to set both is in this thread.
