    HubPages does not use a flat forum structure but replies are placed underneath the post to which they reply. This means that when a thread becomes huge people can still place posts in the middle of the thread. In other words, the most recent post is not necessarily at the bottom but it could be anywhere. This makes it hard to find the latest post in threads with 100+ posts.

    I think we need a link at the main forums page that takes you to the latest post. It's nice to know that person X posted Y minutes ago but how do I easily find that post?

    simeon, you can change the way the posts are organized.  At the top of the page, on the right, you can choose either "threaded" (which is what you describe) or "chronological" (which is what I use as my default).

    I agree, a threaded sorting is harder to navigate!

    If you enter the forums as a guest (not signed in) I believe the only option is threaded; and I read forums that way occasionally - but not often!

    Ah thanks, fair enough. I hadn't used that option before but it's indeed a lot better. I guess this makes my proposal no longer needed!

          Yeah, but didn't it used to be less obvious? Unless I'm thinking of some other site, it wasn't always right up there at the top as it is now. I think I remember that it was way down the bottom and in smaller text.
