    Am I the only one who finds that clicking the "Go to first unread post" text merely puts me at the last entry in a given thread? I suppose that it could be a problem with my browser or cookie status or something but this feature has never worked for me.
    Wondering out loud,

    It's never worked well for me either. Only recently did it start putting me on the last post, but it's never been accurate, either.

    What I have found is that it puts you at the first post posted after the last time you were in the forum (not thread). If you are here quite often it is possible that only one reply has been posted. The system simply assumes that you read every thread when you are in a forum. Not a great assumption, but sure it saves a fair bit of computer power.
