    Why does the archive reverse order?

    I just noticed the archive displays oldest to newest threads. Why is that?

    Because if someone follows a link from a SE, for example, to page 10, then they expect to see what they searched for. If the newest threads came first, then the pages would constantly be different because everything would be "shifted up" instead of "added onto the end".
