A "Back To Top" button.
« on: September 25, 2004, 10:45:09 pm »
Call me lazy but i cant be assed scrolling all the way back up again to click the thing that takes you back to the main forum page, so could you please implement a "back to top" button at the bottom? Or a link to take you to the main page with all the different forum things on it..

it already is my homepage :) but i'd prefer while my mouse is at the bottom of the screen to be able to quickly move it over to the "back to main page" button so it takes me back instantly..

I agree with this one. Plus, I forget I have a home page clicky. Having a bottom link to the front page would be great.

Too much effort. What we really want is a forum-brain direct interaction network (FBDIN) that automatically takes to where we go as soon as we think about it.

You lazy bastard!!! (mission I just completed in mafia was called you lucky bastard)

Here is a hint, my hint: On your keyboard there is a "page up" button. If you hold that button you'll be trasa-mo-located to the top the page scrolling through the messages really quickly.
