Forum software suggestion: Default to sort by most recent first

I posted some items in the various forums here on the website and noticed that they ended up way below the top, on the 3rd page for exampe. Nobody is going to see them there unless they change the sorting to “Most recent” first, which many might not do.

It would be good if the default of the forum software were changed to sort by most recent, so that new posts get attention. I see that Most Popular is important too, so perhaps there could be a combination, where new items without responses at least get sorted to the top for a limited time.
