I've been on the forum how many years now? I just discovered that if I click on the blue arrow next to the person's handle who made the last post in a thread that I can jump to the last post! For the longest time I've been only picking the last page and then scrolling down to the end and wondering why it had to be so hard to get to the latest post.

I'm dimmer than you. I don't even see a blue arrow, except the ones that let you switch topics.

Wow I didn't know you can do that either. And I'm a software developer...

There seems to be lots of little "tools" for us to use. The "search" function is very helpful too! Can this be made bigger for newbies to find easier? Or how about a primer "sticky" to teach us how to use this site better?

:) Leonard: It took me awhile to figure that out, too; probably due to GCI (General Computer Iilliteracy).

However, when you first go to the list of Topics and you are trying to decide what topic you want to review, note the little blue arrow on the extreme right, right next to the person's handle who made the last post to that thread. Click on that little blue arrow and it will not only go to that thread, but it will go to the last post of the thread you've selected.

'Not much trouble when it's a short thread with few posts (Example: Thread's author is looking for a running and driving, rust-free Studebaker under $1,000.[:0]), but if the thread has many posts (Example: Thread's author is offering for sale an NOS set of C/K front fenders in good shape for $250 the pair.[:p]), it saves scrolling time. :D BP

I'm dimmer. At least you figured it out. I think people responding honestly to a pole about whether they were "dim" or "bright" on this technique, I think you would find a very large number of "dims"[:I].
Thanks for the enlightenment.

I can tell you that in comparison to the many other message boards and forums I visit daily - this one is the easiest to navigate and has the most functions for learning about your fellow members and your past posts.
