Something I've never understood that's never made any sense to me...

Why is it when I click on a topic on this forum, it takes me to a seemingly random post on a seemingly random page? 

It's a most bewilderingly unuseful design I can possibly imagine. 

After all this time, I don't know why I'm just asking NOW, but it really hit me today when I clicked to see the updates on the November Sneak Peek thread and it took me to the middle of page 3 or whatever.

    It takes you to the last comment YOU read... the last time. Basically where you left off.
    Its quite good in long discussions when you dont want to re-read the first two pages (because you have already), but skip to the newer entries.
    This is not wrong or broken, it is a blessing.

    And then after that, it will sometimes slide around because it gets to the post it should, and then loads images and/or formatting above that and pushes the spot it should be at down off the screen.

    People can't just remember where they left off? I mean, the main page thread link has links to the individual pages of the thread that you can go right to. 

    I guess, hey, if people enjoy it, more power to them. I think it's annoyed me because I want to see the first page a lot more often than I have ever thought "Wow, I remember this; so convenient!", haha.

    The page 1 link is always there. Sometimes if a thread blows up, the page I was on last is stuck in the ellipsis section where it can't be directly clicked. Also handy if you only check in on a given thread occasionally.

    THIS RIGHT HERE. I tinykitty hate this. Load pictures first then text. I hate clicking on a post and it's always the wrong one because pictures had to load and input delay picked the wrong one

    I like it 95% of the time.  The sneak peek thread is usually the only time I want it to start at the beginning.

    If you don’t like it, log out.  If the forum doesn’t know who you are, everything loads as if you’ve never read anything.

    Dial-up modems are the worst! That "beep!-click-buzzzzz" is so annoying and the speeds are so slow!

    I actually love it, specially when a lot of people have contributed to the thread since the last time I read it. It makes it easier and faster to get to the new comments.

    I find it incredibly helpful, especially at times where threads have gotten to like 17 pages. IMO it is the one and only improvement this forum has over the old one.
