When you go to a forum and choose to sort it, do you choose hot, recent, or active? Or do you switch among them? I ask mostly out of curiosity.

Most of the time I subscribe to a game/section of the forum and then I go where something new has been posted.
When I need sleeving info, I sort the geeklists for "hot" on the game page as the sleeving geeklist is almost always the hottest.

Hi, Steve. Some of my forums are set to "hot" by default. Not sure why, it just seems to filter in some of the more interesting ones. Sometimes I'll choose "recent" if I've read most of the others. In particular, the video and review forums I prefer set to hot...the others, it doesn't matter to me much so I often cycle through all 3.

Moved from General Gaming to BGG General.

I use 'hot' to see the popular content, which tends to be a good indicator of a good read.
I use 'recent' if I've exhausted the 'hot' threads.
I rarely use 'active', if I do its generally to find a thread that I've responded to that's gone missing.

I don't "go" and choose it. My setting remains fixed on Recent.

The others are only a rare curiosity.

Recent first, sometimes I look up active.

I use subscriptions, which default to most recent first.

If I need to search forums, I use Search, unless the thread I'm looking for is recent, in which case Recent.
