    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.

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