Ok, I made a little hack for you that gives you the option to sort with the oldest topic start date at the top, and the newest at the bottom:

admin_forums.php

Around line 284, find

<option value="1"<?php if ($cur_forum['sort_by'] == '1') echo ' selected="selected"' ?>>Topic start</option>

After, add

<option value="2"<?php if ($cur_forum['sort_by'] == '2') echo ' selected="selected"' ?>>Topic start, reverse</option>


viewforum.php

Around line 109, find

// Fetch list of topics to display on this page

After, add

if (($cur_forum['sort_by'] == '1') || ($cur_forum['sort_by'] == '0')) {
	$newsort = 'DESC';
} else if ($cur_forum['sort_by'] == '2') {
	$newsort = 'ASC';
}

Around line 117, find

	// Without "the dot"
	$sql = 'SELECT id, poster, subject, posted, last_post, last_post_id, last_poster, num_views, num_replies, closed, sticky, moved_to FROM '.$db->prefix.'topics WHERE forum_id='.$id.' ORDER BY sticky DESC, '.(($cur_forum['sort_by'] == '1') ? 'posted' : 'last_post').' DESC LIMIT '.$start_from.', '.$pun_user['disp_topics'];

Replace with

	// Without "the dot"
	$sql = 'SELECT id, poster, subject, posted, last_post, last_post_id, last_poster, num_views, num_replies, closed, sticky, moved_to FROM '.$db->prefix.'topics WHERE forum_id='.$id.' ORDER BY sticky DESC, '.(($cur_forum['sort_by'] == '1') ? 'posted' : 'last_post').' '.$newsort.' LIMIT '.$start_from.', '.$pun_user['disp_topics'];

Around line 126, find

Save & upload

Now you can sort by topic start in reverse :)
