I can’t say that I agree with most of these recent complaints - with the exception of the graphic layout (top and bottom of each digest). An ugly, sickly looking green is not the colour we usually associate with anything pertaining to Jewish matters: a light blue is visually the colour that makes sense for us, pleasing not only to the eye - just saying...

Given the large number of people who have complained about the new system  without giving specific feedback, I’d like to say this: yes there are glitches, but any new large project such as this one can be expected to have several updates before it operates the ways it was conceived. And in my opinion, it is doing very well considering its very recent launch. Kudos to the people who are putting it together! 🥇It is an enormous task and you are doing an amazing job. 

To the people who are dissatisfied, I’d like to say: please be patient and please do your part: send SPECIFIC feedback, give details of what is not working the way it it supposed to without complaining. Be part of the quality control team that brings the project to completion. Yes you can greatly contribute, even if you know zip about computers! 

This organization is made entirely of people who know what they’re doing, they’ve demonstrated it again and again. Don’t doubt them, don’t be critical, don’t add to the aggravation. When you run into one of the infamous glitches, grind your teeth and/or swear if you have to (I do!), get yourself a cup of your favorite coffee and/or a cookie, send your feedback to this team of magicians and sit tight. They will deliver the goods! In the meantime, let’s give them a hand!! 👏👏👏

As a retired optometrist research has shown that black on white, i.e., greater contrast, improves visualization of text.  Additionally, as we age a larger font would also make it easier to read the text.

I was able to change the size of the messages in the Digest by right-clicking and choosing Zoom. The Digest became much easier to read. Also, my Digest arrives with blue base and header - perhaps the green one isn't due to Jewishgen, but to your email programme..
