Sort Conversations by thread creation, not thread replies
I don't like the fact that if someone replies to a thread in a channel, it becomes the newest message added. Channels should be sorted by message/thread creation first, not replies to a thread.
Although... if threads are all separate, and you reply to a thread if you're talking about the same thing, then a newer thread that isn't being talked about shouldn't be easier to find than something you've been constantly talking about for weeks. I don't want to have to go all the way back up to 2 weeks ago to find the thread that we are literally updating constantly. Maybe a sort button would help you choose what's most appropriate at the time...
Agreed. By moving the original message you're completely removing the original message from the broader context in which it was originally said. This makes using threads incredibly confusing in an existing conversation...
