Should incoming messages be ordered by sent time or by receiving time?
I think the sent time is important.
What do you think?
In groups (my case) it’s better to order by the send time. (I think it’s always the better way)
In my case the answer was received before the question. A thread with this inconsistent is not really readable.
-Alice write question
-Bob answer to this question
-I see the order: Bobs answer - Aliices question.
So I can’t understand what they plane.
Very often a group chat is made of questions and answers.
And a Order not by sending time is not really helpful.
My group is relative small.
I believe in a larger group it’s terrible.
How do it other popular messengers?
If you vote, it would be great if you would write a short line why you voted for this way.
- Order messages by sent time
- Order messages by received time
