Re: If we are adding new buttons
David, you can solve the scrolling problem by using the "New Posts" button (on the left near the top of each Forum page), then clicking the blue down-arrow to the immediate left of each thread title. It remembers approximately where you last were in that thread. Of course, this only works if you are always logged in, but I see no reason to log out anyway.
