I have always put modulator units before echo, school of thought being to echo the chorus or other modulator rather than feed the echo repeats into the varying sweep of the moving chorus, seems to make more sense. However, I see the Visual Sound dual H20 pedal has their delay before the chorus, I am puzzled, surely they brainstormed this a bit before deciding. Does it sound better????? Any thoughts out there? I just cannot decide. I am used to the Chorus into the Delay and perhaps I am used to this config in controlling and using it.
I had been using chorus before the delay, the traditional way. My delay pedals, however, have a "modulation" feature which, on some of the settings, is basically a chorus effect applied to the repeats. I like that sound, quite a bit, delay into chorus. Not quite the same as what you've got, but it works quite well for me.

Re: EFFECT CHAINS where to put what...

While those rigid connectors do make for a very clean, compact setup, what do you know about long-term reliability?
I would think that small amounts of motion in the pedals (such as from aggressively stomping, or vibration during transport) over time would cause damage to either the rigid plugs or the jacks on the pedals.

Unless the alignment is very good, and the mounting of the pedals doesn't allow for movement (for instance bolted firmly to the pedal board),that is.
Or is there some flex built into those couplers?

That said, i would expect the offset ones to be a bit more forgiving than the straight ones.

We have a problem in common! 8)

Industrial Velcro a) doesn't provide especially sure connection to the board, and b) pulls off the OEM stickers from my pedals, which are all either vintage or just old, depending on point of view. In considering my new pedalboard, I found a metal mending brace at Ace Hardware (p/n 5292040). They're 2x1 1/2", holes are 1 3/8 " center to center. I figured, screw a couple to bottoms of boxes where rubber feet should go, then screw 'em to the board.

Problem is, several of my pedals have no rubber feet. For those, I'm looking at releasable cable ties made by Eagle Plastic Products and sold by Mouser Electronics (http://www.mouser.com). The longest tie is 11 1/2', long enough to tie down even my largest boxes. They're releasable, so you can move stuff around easily. Cables would secure to the board... somehow. Still on the drawing board.

Any better suggestions are more than welcome.
