    I was excited when vbulletin said they would support a threaded view, but in practice I don't think it's very useful.

    Threaded can work in some forums, but the way most people are accustomed to posting on these forums, just the flat/linear style is easier to read.

    I can't work with anything but the default. It's what I'm used to. :)

    Never tried anything but the default setting. :eek:



    I fear change! ;) :D

    Well, I just played around with the other display modes, and I must say that I prefer using the default one. So much easier for me to use. :eek: :)

    I messed around with the different modes a little while ago and the default is really the best out of them. The other two just seem like too much effort.

    Exactly, the other options did seem to require too much effort. They take some of the fun out of trying to read and respond to posts. :eek:

    I also tried the various modes some time back and it all got very confusing. So I stick with the Default one - seems very clean and easy to keep track of stuff.

    Yeah, this thread is dying, but it was on the front page. Got me curious. Can't believe with 26 votes, it has been unanimous....

    I always figured I was a "lesser" user because I just use the default, but I guess I was wrong. :eek:

    Edit- whoa, didn't even notice the dates.

    Linear - oldest first. It's the only way to go. My mind works best in linear mode... ;)

    Definitely linear - I tried the others when I first joined and got horribly confused. Oldest first seems to suit the way this site works and the way people here post.

    Default... what can I say... the original is still the best.

    Default. I can't stand it any other way. It drives me crazy.
