Can we have a "go to first unread post" button please?

Every other forum I use has a button to go to the first unread post in a thread, this would be really useful in the longer, fast moving threads, can we have it please?

I agree, this is the only forum I use that doesn't have this facility.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. We'll see how simple it would be.

I would also find this really useful, especially, as Lissy has said, on the long threads.

It's possible but it means a lot of extra work for the servers - every time anyone reads a thread it would have to be recorded. With as many people reading threads as we have, that's a lot of extra processing and data storage.

So basically - it will either slow the site or cost a lot of cash. (It's because you all talk so darned much.)

If you all promise to buy all your Christmas presents via our shopping page or from our discount partners then we might be able to afford to do it...
