Clone drive direction

The Wiki isn't clear on what direction solder tab default is clockwise or counter clockwise.

The Clone jumpers does not change the direction the motors turn.

Potential issues:
# The Clone Direction Jumper is not soldered properly.

I was confused BEFORE I found this old post, now I REALLY confused!!!

So let's say I want to clone my Y axis, your telling me I MUST solder both jumper pads? What if one of my motors is running backwards, I cannot simply change the direction by either soldering or unsoldering the DIR jumper pad? (isn't that why it's called a direction jumper pad?)
The WIKI REALLY needs to clarify this!

If it is running backwards, just reverse the motor cables.

If you reverse both wires for just one of the coils (A or B) you will change the direction of the movement.
