    Hideho RM mods and techies,
    i've noticed this for quite a while now but i thought it would've been better to wait a bit before posting yet another forum bug. Heck i wouldn't want u guys/girls wasting all your precious time in changing posts to fit my needs.

    to the point:
    Whenever there is a thread with more than 6 pages a 'last page' link is added. This link actually goes to the last post in the thread.

    This is so confusing my head starts spinning every time i press such a link. Now i'm afraid it will fall off.
    If this doesn't get fixed soon i think i'll never read/post on MR again. I'll build myself a nice custom PC with big fans, neon lights and lots of buttons and slots on the front panel.
    Does anyone know a good longhorn forum?

    I agree, redeye_be. That link is somewhat counterintuitive. I click it expecting to be taken to the last page in the thread (which it does), but not expecting it to also take me to the last post in the thread.

    This never really bothered me. I can scroll up to read posts just as easily as I can scroll down.

    I think it used to say 'last post' before an update of vB.

    Whatchamean, the link doesn't do what it says? :confused:

    ;)
