Thread page navigation

Am I the only one bothered by this? If I want to follow up my reading of a multi-page thread that goes on for let's say 20 or more pages, I can't easily navigate to the last couple of pages.

Let's say I missed a day or so of postings in a 23 page thread. I find the thread in the page listing, say for example:

Log Heated Debate On Some Topic ( 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ... Last Page ) .

I want to easily go to page 21 to catch up on the banter. I click on "Last Page" and go straight to the last listed reply on the last page, then click on the "ribbon" with the page numbers to back-track.

Why not instead set up the thread titles to read:

Log Heated Debate On Some Topic ( 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ... 21 22 23 ).

We've all seen this elsewhere, and it would make things easier to find.

Have you tried clicking on the white checkmark in the gray circle beside the name of the thread in the thread listings? That will take you to the last unread post of the thread. (Last time you visited anyway).

SkyHook - It's always taken me to the last post I read for myself.

Takes me to last post - even in threads I haven't read at all...

BTW SkyHook, 2 different animals here: white arrow next to user name, white checkmark next to thread title.

Both seem to have same effect for me, however...!?? Puzzled...

SkyHook - Yes it would take me to post 6. Though it sounds like you got it figured out, great job! Now we know why it seems so "random".
