What is the point of commenting on a topic, as most people will never know it has been made.
It would appear that the ability to sort by Recent only applies to the date of the first post in a topic. It does NOT apply to comments that are made to posts, so you are unable to read what has been said recently in topics generally.
I added a further comment to a post I had previously made. Do FamilySearch employees monitor further comments whether they be made by me, or anyone else, and if so, how do they (or anyone else) know that a comment has been added.
There appears no way for the topic to rise to the "top of the list", even by selecting Recent, and there is no email notification, as there was on GetSatisfaction.
As this Forum is headed Ideas, presumably the purpose is to present these to FamilySearch employees, but do employees get to see comments subsequently made.
