    Never seen so many zeroes in the replies column, either......

      Are you sure it's not there somewhere? As far as I can see, the section is misnamed. It should be called "latest threads" or "latest topics." It seems to be in reverse chron order by original post, not, in fact, the "latest post".

        The site is clearly experiencing a major malfunction. When the first page of "Latest Chowhound Post" has posts 10 hours old at this time of day, the site is not working. Engineering is obviously aware of the matter.

          We seem to be in some sort of time warp...

            I was wondering where engineering is on this,they're here now for certain.
            The "off topic"tongue and cheek banter you,Veggo and I had is gone in less than 10 minutes.

            Did something backfire when the "unread posts" changes were made? yesterday?

              Your 6 minute old post is half way down the - what I call The Main Board - (Latest Chowhound Posts) - and sandwiched between a post made 3 hours ago and one made 7 hours ago. Crazy...

                I first noticed the flaw at the start of the baseball game last night. The mods can obviously delete at will, but the engineers are surely busy with the big problem. I'm guessing that a flow of posts and feedback on what is or isn't working can be of assistance to them.

                The change in sort order was not intentional; we'll be switching it back to recent-post order in the near future. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

                  Why not enable either mode capability, selectable by the user/poster? You have a similar capability for posters on their profile page list of posts.

                    ...and you did, briefly - so it seemed a day or so ago - and now it is back to sorting by date/time of the first/original post.

                    What happened?

                      I think the Engineers are still punch drunk from the Giants winning the World Series. Give them a few days to work off the hangover.

                      This change is now in effect. If you look at the Chowhound homepage, you'll now see a list of all the most recently updated discussions.

                          I guess that World Series hangover wore off quicker than expected.

                        I continue to experience this same problem.

                        Thanks, ipse~, for registering this problem.

                          It's beginning to look like a funeral around here... The silence is deafening.

                            All is working well for me now!

                                Nor here. My "Latest Chowhound Post" page has stuff that is 8 hours old, and only one thread has more than 5 replies.

                                    Sorry to hear, ipsedixit, but I'm still good. Your response here came up on my email exactly as it should have, and the older responses that I have already viewed are closed.

                                        Yes, ipsedixit. I now understand that I was referring to a different problem -- which has since been resolved.
