Hey there TW, welcome to GotMead!
It's a pretty simple fix, just not straight forward to find. Click on "User CP" at the top of the page. Then, scroll down to a link on the left side of the page that says "Edit Options". This will take you through everything you can do to customize your experience on here. Specifically, scroll down to the section labeled "Thread Options" or something like that, and you get the option to view the threads in whatever order suits you.
Hope that helps, and again, welcome aboard!
Find what you like, and hone it to perfection.
And don't serve dodgy beer!
