    Default Linearity of vBulletin

    One thing that annoys me about vBulletin is that posts in a thread are organized in a linear fashion, when they should really be organized in a hierarchical, tree structure (see http://reddit.com). Responses are typically directed towards a specific post within a thread, and that's often not the original post or the post just above the response. vBulletin threads make it hard to immediately tell what a post is responding to.

    Am I the only one bothered by this?

    Being on forums for like 5 years I'm really used to it and would probably be really confused at anything else

    I am fine with this. You can switch a thread backwards if you wish Mewtwo in the options.

    no way. linearity is the only way.

    "What else?" said the secretary.

    Yeah, Reddit just confuses me. Most forums I've seen are linear, anyway.

    the tree structure couldnt work at all for a social-type forum like pd
    "I'll go," said Chagataev. "But what will I do there? Build socialism?"
    "What else?" said the secretary.

    I don't like the other way.
