I get a daily digest, and when I open a discussion I see all the notes arranged in chronological order, which means that I have to scroll through all the old notes before I see the new ones. Is that by design? Is there some kind of configuration setting I can change?
I agree - especially when many have commented on a topic (like this one, “Trial”) it takes a long time to find the most recent reply. In addition, Hank’s message was embedded in a long list of replies on matters that had strayed from the original topic heading.

Isn't the point of hashtags to add a more specific subject(s)? And you can filter by the hashtag as well.

Well, once the archiving process is back up and running, JewishGen
posts are fully searchable by the actual content of the post. I guess
a hashtag might in some cases provide an additional bit of text to
search on, but as others have mentioned, hashtags were developed in
order to make searching of otherwise unindexed text (in social media)
possible. It's unlikely they would make much difference in our
context.

When viewing a topic thread in the Web interface, you can sort posts by date so you can see the most recent at the top and don't have to scroll. The link is in the upper right of the thread.

Admittedly I've not been being a Good Citizen and keeping up with this.  But you don't want to know how long it took me to
  • go to the link
  • scroll down and not find this message
  • notice that there's a second PAGE of messages
  • Read the message and try to sign in, in order to reply
  • I'm not sure if I had to create a new ID in order to sign in, but I certainly had to create a new password (and I thought I was signing in from a different address than it ended up saving)
  • get to the point where I can write this message - still wondering if I should reply to the LATEST message in the list of messages, to the one I'd come in to read, or to the basic topic!
Presumably this will get much simpler if/when we really do adopt this system, but....it sure would discourage ME to have to go through processes like this!
