Topic: Go to very first message in a topic?

Is there a way to go to the very first message in a topic? Pressing Home just takes me to the first message Zulip has loaded.

If you scroll to the top, it should load earlier messages

Yeah, but I have to do that over and over and over again to get to the actual first message in the topic. Sometimes, the initial message in the topic contains vital context. AFAIK there's no way other than pressing Home over and over again.

GH issue, PR (closed, unfortunately).

what I would like to see in each stream is the creation date of it plus the date of the latest post inside of it.

I'm subscribed to alot of stream and not always I'm able to check zullip daily, so mês message accumulate fast and I would like to be hable to start from newer or older posts as I see fit.

@Patrice Peterson You can open the list of topics for a stream, in the sidebar, and scroll through that to the bottom. That'll be somewhat faster.

@Josh Triplett @DPC Sorry, I think I was being unclear—what I intended to ask was how to get at the very first message within a single topic. I've updated the headline to hopefully make it more understandable.

@Patrice Peterson This is a bit of a hack, but it works. If you click on the search bar while narrowed to a topic, it'll show the search terms for the current narrow. If you add "near:1" and hit Enter, that'll take you to the top message of that narrow.

On iOS tapping the time at the top of the screen will scroll up as far as possible (not related to Zulip, it works everywhere). Doing it repeatedly seems to work fine, it takes a second or two to load messages further up the thread
