    active in thread order

    Okay, we tried to figure this out in the Christmas Party thread, but how is the order of the members active in the thread determined? It's not alphabetical, it's not by time spent in the forum, and it's not by member number. How is it constructed, because it seems to be fairly universal between members? (I know your own name is first, but what about the rest?)

    Hmm, I always thought it was: You, then alphabetical.

    I guess I never really paid attention...

    That's the way I see it too.

    I always thought it was the coolest, nicest, funniest, greatest, neato-ist that's listed first.

    It's alphabetical on the main forum page, but once you're in a thread, I can't figure it out! Here's a sample:

    chirospasm, +Dex, +Lucy, +stargazer401, +Unklescott, +scarlett530, SnowflakeGirl, +speedbump, +Silverstar, +libra1022, ref guy

    So it's not by buddies, either, or time spent in thread . . . ???

    ?

    maybe it is you plus the other people in the order that they entered the thread and left and entered again. Maybe that is why it is such a jumble...because people often check on other threads as they are popping in and out of the party one.

    Hon, you have a little too much time on your hands. Just kidding. I've wondered about that too. Maybe if you note the order in which the posts are listed and see if everytime a person posts if that name goes to the top/front of the list after yours. I think that is also what Feifer is saying. Get a few people to post in a certain order and see if that works. I don't know if you will see the change unless you leave the thread and return to it for the "updates".

    I don't know. I am always first when I log on. So I guess I am the above mentioned by Maveno ? I guessed not. I have no idea. I always thought it's alphabetical order.. Or maybe how long you signed in ? I don't know....

    Oooh, I bet it is the order in which they signed in to FORT! That would explain why stargazer's always near the front Good call, ARG!
