You must have a setting in your "User Control Panel" set to see it that way.
To edit how threads show up do the following:
1) Access your User Control panel. You can do this one of two ways : a) click the "User CP" link that is in the upper left hand side of all the pages of the message boards, or b) click the " Account Info" link at the top of all the pages on TidalFish.com . It is between the "Articles" and the "Sponsors" link.
2)Once there, click "Edit Options" on the left hand side column.
3) Scroll down on that page to the 'Thread Display Options"
4) In the pull down select "Linear - Oldest First"
5) Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and hit "Save Changes"
You should be all set after that.
