You know as well as I do that people don't normally go looking for settings, and there's no global way to change it for everyone.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

No good deed goes unpunished / No act of charity goes unresented.

it really isn't hard (just about 3 steps) but like I said, some people don't even know that it exists

You could always *tell them* about it.

If you don't make conversation mode default in 2.1, could you at least add an option to choose the default PM layout for the entire forum? I know for a fact that 95% of my users would rather use the conversation layout, but they don't snoop around and so don't know how to change it (or for some, that it even exists).

Just out of interest did you run a poll which every user of your forum answered this question to confirm the figure of 95%  ;)?

I agree entirely that people don't help themselves by not reading the instructions about how to do things.  I've been guilty of that myself, but that's one of the reasons I come here, to try to increase my understanding of how the software works.

Only have to have 20 users to be able to get 5% increments ;D
