    After reading a thread, the link on the left is disabled. If I revisit a thread after previously getting caught up, I have to click the title, start at the first post, and then navigate to the end (and then add a comment to the latest posts).

    This is a bit cumbersome. I suggest shading the dot/star icon to a lighter color for a read thread, but keep it an active link to the last post.

    That link isn't disabled for me. I saw this, went out and refreshed the list of threads I'd been looking at, this one showed that it had been read, but the date of last post was still a good link that brought me right back.

    I see what you mean, but you can click the last page number or hit the preview button and last post link, as other ways to get there

    Woops -- I just reread my post, and I misstated that -- of course the left-hand link was disabled. But I do use the date-of-last-post link often to go immediately to the last post, which is especially useful in catching up on threads I hadn't read since the move, since the 'unread post' function hasn't been working at all on those (at least for me).

    Ah, I missed that. I thought that link was part of the Member Info link above it, and would take me to the member page.
