Gold Up'd Thread Sorting

It has come to my attention recently that gold up'd threads are sorted by thread creation date instead of date when they were gold up'd. Although this is functioning as designed, I would imagine it would make more sense (and help to keep the BST forum less cluttered) if they were sorted by date they were up'd.

For example, if I had known that before uping my thread, I would have obviously created a duplicate thread for the same thing, in order to have it appear at the top of the gold ups. This would further clutter an already cluttered forum.

I agree with you and I think that sorting method would make the most sense.

Unfortunately the data that I need to use to sort the threads against the Ups according to when they were purchased isn't available on that script (I just checked to make sure). It just knows they are Upped threads. I could make that data part of the query but adding it would cause a performance hit, which we can't afford to do. So much data here!




Thanks though.

Thanks for the response Tony. Maybe make it part of a "best practices" type of document, or add it to the FAQs.

Or, even better (although I don't know how extensive the SDK for vBulletin is) add a warning note when a user is gold upping a thread older then 24 hours.

Thanks again,

Glad I know this You should put that into the description of a gold up. Tell people to make a new duplicate thread. Or not...
