Shooting me to the bottom..

Just wondering if anyone else noticed..

When I vew a page with a few posts on it (5+) I get shot to the bottom..

Dunno what's up with that but it's just annoying having to scroll to the top again.

I think if you look closely, it is a post you have read before, or replied to. What happens is that if there are new replies in the thread, it shoots you down to the beginning of the new posts.

<font face="Comic Sans MS">That's correct, when it's a thread you've viewed before, it automatically takes you to the first new post in the thread... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] </font>

Actually, it looks at the number of new posts since you last logged in. Example, If there is a thread that I have not read at all with 6 posts, and two of them are new since I last logged in (the number in red) then it will take me down to them, even though I have not read any of the posts. It's a nice feature, if you've read the first 4!! Otherwise it's quite annoying.

I don't like that new feature, sometimes I read the more interesting titles first and then come back later to read the rest of the new posts, scrolling up all the time bothers me.

Well, the concept is of this feature is good, but I must admit that it really annoys me too. If you could find some way to make this feature optional that would be great.

I agree, it's a good feature, but VERY, VERY annoying when it shoots you to the bottom of a post you haven't even read. I'd love to see it optional.
