My comments...

Okay Mr. Basil, here are my suggestions from recent thoughts. I'm not sure if they're possible to implement. They might just be parts of VBulletin that cannot be changed. But in any event...

1. A combination of the buttons that currently exist. We have "Last Thread" and "Next Thread" and we also have "Go To First Unread Post." For those of us scrolling through all the new posts in a forum, how about links that combine these? In other words, "Next Thread - First Unread Post" and "Last Thread - First Unread Post." Otherwise, there are undoubtedly scores of people that click Next Thread, then First Unread, then Next Thread, then First Unread...

2. Dammit! I forgot what #2 was. It will come to me later...

This is possible, but it would cause the hits on the database to triple for each thread displayed. I'd rather wait till we upgrade our server (In March) to see how this would effect the database.
