Reading the digest is becoming more difficult.... #general


Alberto Guido Chester
 

As a long time reader of Jewishgen Digest, I have noticed that due to the increased volume of posts it is becoming more difficult every day to follow the threads.
 
I strongly suggest Jewisgenners to QUOTE part of the post they are answering (or answering privately if the answer is not of help to the community).
 
This has been mentioned a couple of days ago by another long time Jewishgenner, Mr David Lewin of London.
 
Finally, please do not forget to sign with your FULL name and LOCATION as moderators frequently remind us to do.

I would whole heartedly agree with him. I, too, have been a very long time reader of the Jewishgen digest, and find that those who submit posts probably need to review the protocol. I would like to add that when asking for a translation, in addition to indicating the language, PLEASE somewhere in your message indicate a surname. That would help determine if that request might be of interest to others interested in that name.
 
Thanks,

In fact clicking "View/Reply Online" below a message opens a window where you can scroll down till you see a button "view all n messages in topic". This is certainly an improvement over the previous system where answers could be scattered among several digests.

 At first I found it difficult too but checking the various links below found that for me the two best ones are "mute this topic" which helps to decrease the amount of daily posts to my inbox and View Online which does keep the thread together for easier reading.  The others are self-explanatory and serve good purposes.
Stay safe and stay well.
