and I know it has been mentioned before. If it isn't possible, it's ok.

I would like a "view active topics" option at the bottom of the posts. That's all.

Sometimes it feels trying to "scroll up". uhhhhh. For the most part, it is good that the threads are long so it is easier to pop up again. Sometimes they are not so good. It is mostly a convenience thing.

Just a suggestion. Thanks

Maria,
when I asked about this Mr Lake pointed out a nice feature - at the bottom left corner of a post, in the column that lists the name of the poster and number of posts etc, there is a link marked "top". Click that and it takes you right to the top where View Active Topics is available. Does that help?

I click on "view new posts" when I first get on. Then if I'm just reading a thread, I click on the computer's "back" button, and it takes me back to the initial list of new posts. If I post, the page that tells me it was successfully submitted contains a "view new posts" in the upper right. That's what is interesting to me about computers: there are usually multiple ways to navigate something like the boards.

I use "view new posts" too. Then I open a new window or tab with the red box for each post I want to read, and close it when I'm done. Not much scrolling.

The "view new posts" is in my links toolbar. Makes it real easy.
