    Don't know if this one has come up yet...

    How about a button when you get into a thread that will automatically take you to your most recent post within that thread. This way, you can easily get up to speed on an active conversation.

    That takes you to the last post in the thread. BLReid wants a link to take you to your last post in a thread. Personally if you really can't remember what page you posted on I think it would be pretty simple to look through your post history.

    True,

    But as I am lazy by nature, I was hoping for a shortcut.

    If we had a 'reply to thread notification' email [with the ability to turn it off and on] the poster would immediately find the conversation he [or she] was involved in.
    Most forums have this minor option.

    Before you leave the forum, try bookmarking the page where your most recent post are. Then, when you get back, use the bookmark and you'll be able to pick up where you left off.

    I think just about all browsers has the bookmark feature nowadays.

    The problem with that is, for me, [and others, no doubt] I already have loads and loads of bookmarks and I'm trying to reduce the number of them - this would/could add many more.

    I also have loads and loads of bookmarks. However, I created a folder called - surprise - RHP. In there I have all the threads I'm interested in. When I read a thread and need to bookmark the new location, naturally I overwrite the previous bookmark to that thread. Works elegantly for me.

    That is a pretty good recommendation stocken. When I get a chance to re-subscribe I'll make a point of giving you a rec for something.

    The only problem that I can see with it is that most of the time (right now anyway) I log on only at work, and am rather limited as to the bookmarks that I want to store there. This is my problem, I know, but I am sure that I am not the only one with this limitation (ex: all Chessatwork users).
