    Because the Dish Forums were created first, and we have just stuck with the ordering.

    You can filter out the forums that you don't want to see in your UserCP preferences.

    You should probably ask in the Forum Support forum, but my guess is that this site started with Echostar/Dish discussion and DIRECTVV was added later, hence DIRECV was added below the existing DISH forum.

    I think typically it could be alpha listing, but they prob made it the way you see it for seniority.

    1. Maybe seniority within the forums? DirecTV has been around longer than Dish.

    2. If the alphabet counted for anything, than DirecTV wouldn't list "soccer" before "snowboarding" in the Sports categories.

    Ask any Brit how to spell "soccer" and the will tell you it is F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L.

    F clearly comes before S.

    As noted earlier...

    It basically had to do with the order things were created.
    That's it... nothing else to it.

    If you don't want to see the Dish Forums in yoru listings.
    You can go into your USERCP and adjust the forums that you want to see...

    Gee, and I'd thought it was sorted alphanumerically according to height!
