New posts added earlier in posted list

I was just about to post a new SoPW item and noted that I needed to scroll through lots of old posts. On commenting on that here (i.e. this PM post), I sill needed to wade through many posts to get to "Post new ...".

My suggestion is that new SoPW, and all other new PM posts, are presented at the top of the list.

Obviously, having been here for over a decade, I'm quite familar with the status quo. Those, who are newer to the monastery, may well get disoriented negotiating the cloisters: let's make it easier for them.

Update: Rewrote title (before any respones) to make intent clearer.

    Hi Ken

    > My suggestion is that new SoPW, and all other new PM posts, are presented at the top of the list.

    That's already the case for me. (???)

    > I sill needed to wade through many posts to get to "Post new ...".

    actually there is a link on top to an the anchor "#post", but it doesn't work in my FF but the anchor is in the HTML (??? sic)

    edit

    try https://perlmonks.org/?node_id=479#post ... I suppose modern browsers don't like "post" as anchor

    update

    ) na ... my CSS settings are hiding the target-anchor.

      actually there is a link on top to an the anchor "#post"

      So there is...I had missed that and, like Ken, I had been scrolling all the way to the bottom to post.
      I guess that if two people, Ken and I, are doing that then we are probably not alone!

        I was also mostly scrolling when asking.

        I'd say we should make the link more prominent.

    Easy would be to have a "new question" link at the top of the page, where it belongs , in monktitlebar
