Mark, I don't understand the technical aspects of your post, but if there are problems with this format then a new approach is necessary.
I much prefer the forum style where a new message makes the thread go back to the top of the page.That means the 'hot topic' stays in No.1 spot.
The forums I know of that use this style (e.g. tripadvisor) also have a sort of table format - message title, original poster's name and then the name of the most recent poster as well as date and time of posting so you can see at a glance which posts have been added since you last looked. That style really is MUCH better than this one as it allows us all to follow a thread without having to trawl through all the posts that have been written in the meantime.
ope that's what you mean in your description of your new format - it will make this forum SO much more user-friendly.
