Hello 👋 
I’m trying to figure out how the discussions work. 
Are new messages on the top of thread or on the last page. 
I can’t seem to see the time each message was posted. Where can I see this?
thank you

    The new messages are at the end they appear in order posted.  On the thread that appears on the list of threads it gives the time the last comment was made

    New discussions are at the top of each thread. They may be pushed further down the thread depending on when the comments were made on each thread.

    If you're using a mobile phone the time of that thread or comment will show at the top of the comment box. If you're using a lap top or desktop the time will show on the left hand side of the box. At least that's how it works for me depending on which device i'm using.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @xshalim :) 

    When viewing a discussion, the most recent comment on the discussion is on the final page. You should be able to see the date a comment was posted by the commenter's username. If it was posted today, it'll show the time. If you're using a desktop or laptop, you can hover over the date the comment was posted to see the time it was posted. 

    When viewing a list of discussions on the recent discussions page, or within a category, the discussions that have most recently been commented on will be at the top, regardless of when the original discussion was posted.

    Does that help?
