I mainly work around that by skipping the threads like Notable eco-cars (old & new) spotted in the wild: post your pics! when I'm on my phone.

What is this "little button in the control panel" you speak of?

Those little buttons. They'll take you straight to the first unread post-without having to load the page at the beginning and then jump to it.

Ok that explains it, I thought it was a setting in the userCP. I don't use my userCP that way because I also like to see new posts I haven't read yet. Good to know though. I've been taking full advantage of the button at the top of the page for "go to first unread"; I'd never noticed it before.

I subscribe to threads that interest me (even if I haven't posted in them) so they don't get lost in the shuffle. Once I'm caught up on subscribed threads I can browse recent posts.

"View first unread"? Now I've seen everything: this site can actually read my mind to know what posts I've actually read :-)

Yes, I know it really means "new posts since I last looked at the thread", but the point here is that I may not read every post on a page when I look at it, so when I come back later, posts that I didn't actually read are marked as read...

Same here. Having grown up in Silicon Valley, I have serious tech burnout. I don't really mess with stuff like that.
